Touch screen no longer works

I put a new touch screen in my ds because the original one was all scratched up due to someone taking the screen protector off with out telling me. when i did that i also replaced the shell. The touch screen will not work i even tried putting the other one back in and it wouldnt work. how do i fix this? I know that the little tab is supose to hook in but that part was broken when i got it appart so i put some tape on the back of it to hook it to the circuit. Can some one tell me how to fix this with out sending it in please?

Once the ribbon connector is broken you will need to replace the clamp, tape will not hold the 4 prongs down

DS TOUCH SCREEN DOES NOT WORK


Hi,

If you have a valid warranty then send it in, if not you can either take it to a repair shop or indulge in a bit of DIY.

I'm assuming it's a fat DS (original) as thats the catagory you have listed this question in in which case I don't have a dismantling guide written up... If you do need help taking it apart and fitting a new touch screen send me a message via my profile page. You can get a new touch screen for the fat DS from ebay at a very reasonable price.

If you have a DS lite Ihave a dismantling guide written up which you can access by clicking here as well as a touch screen replacement guide click here. Again you can get a new touch screen from ebay for a very reasonable price.

Hope this helps and please do contact me if you need any more info.

Regards,
SOD69

My DS lite has really bad scratches on the touch screen. I bought a new touch screen off ebay, but when i went to replace it, I found that all I needed was a little panel that sits on top of the tough...


yeah they should come with screen protectors.. =( I scratched mine to hell before i realized what a screen protector was, and ended up trading it in at gamestop and buying a new one. I know it's not an answer to what you're looking for, but that's what i did.. =(

If your touch screen appears to be working but does not calibrate it can sometimes be something stuck on the screen, including a screen protector. Have a good look and maybe remove a screen protector and put a new one on. Sometimes a bit of dirt get trapped under them. Or a big scratch, which basically means a new touch screen.

Two choices. One: If your console still has a warranty, send it in to Nintendo for repair. Two: Search on some site like Ebay for replacement touch screens and buy one. Replace the faulty touch screen with the brand new one.

My nintendo DS lite touch screen doesn't work.


Simply place your thumb on the edge of the screen and press lightly while blowing air (avoid spitting). You may need to work all 4 edges/corners.
