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?

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.
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.
hi there i recently visited the site ive listed below and they do most repaies to consonsoles to have the touch screen replaced will cost£36.95 plus £6.99 return insured(the return postage may vary slightly for different countrys.hope you find this usfull,
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.
