Mine does calibrate just not in the right place.

My ds will not calibrate if I touch right on the dot. It does calibrate however if I touch it slightly left of the dot. How do I fix this?

You have a blind ds screen! I had this problem so I got a new one but if you bought it with game you can have it fixed for free but if not it-s £40-£60 to repair

Calibrate ds lite

If you would like to calibrate your screen...
Turn the DS on without a DS card inserted (or with auto mode turned off).
Then touch the DS icon in the bottom middle of the screen.
Press the far right yellow icon, with a crosshair in it.
You will then be taken to the calibrate screen.
Touch the small red squares on the screen as they appear.

Press confirm, exit menu.

My garmin 760 screen reads "press dot".


All you need to do is use a ds pen (or something that is plastic and will fit within the black dot) - our fingers are to big for the calibration. Ive just fixed mine. It should correct its self within 10 dots and away you go again :)

Touch screen is "uncalibrateable"

well, the only thing i can think of is to contact Nitendo and ask them, though i'm not sure thier service is free. Alternatively you can trade it in for a new one or Google this problem

My ds screen wont calibrate

try running a toothbrush around the edge of your screen a bit of dirt can throw off the calibration but its more likely that you will have to replace the touch screen. good luck

Nintendo DS touch screen not working properly

Turn the ds on without a game in it and go to the settings icon (looks like a tiny ds) on the bottom middle of the screen then go to the far right yellow icon and it will re-calibrate the touch screen and let you know if calibration was a success.

Nintendo ds calibrating

I`ne been working on my dauthers now for a few days.
I have found that in the calibrate screen, if i click the first point (top left), then click the second (bottom right), but instead if clicking the third (middle), i click 4 squares to the right. It puts me in to the test screen....... Now if i play around in the calibration screen, i can ajust where the points of contact happen. I have a feeling that its like a mirror, each one can be turned in different directions, reflecting where to pick up the stylist. If any one finds this help to them, and finds out what excatly what to do...... please, please can you leave a post, expaining what to do

Power on

I had the same problem, but i fixed it myself. It sounds like the fuse ( F2) is blown on the circuit board. Have you had the ds open at anytime ? if so ,did you put the black sponge/foam back in place between the touch screen and the circuit board? if not , this will blow the fuse. if you look at the circuit board just past midway top right there is two small silver dots. ( F2 ). this should have a very thin piece of fuse wire linking them both, if not then the fuse has blown. Solder a piece of solder and "arch it" and drag from one dot to the other so it forms a link. Try it , it worked a treat on mine . Let me know if it works
