It happens if there is moist or dust or sand inside the ds so breath INWARDS through the L or R buttons but dont pull too hard but **** as much as you can until it becomes alright plus keep doing it ... it took me 10 mins to get it right

I had bought the one year plan for my sons ds . the bottom screen will not do anything when you touch it, also in has a hard time reading games. what do i do?

the problem is that the ds is defective what you need to do is see how much a new ds cost that your son would want then get a quote on how much it would take to fix it from: A) Nintendo B) Where you bought it from C) 3rd parties (i.e or go to craigslist and search for ds repair)
then if you need to decide what to do from there hope i helped

Ds touch screen and main screen not working - connectors broken

if you would have sent it to me first I would have replaced the case for you and you wouldn't have had these problems, but I can still help you out. I have a white nintendo DS lite in stock that I had to replace the bottom lcd display in. I will ship to you for $90 and if you are feeling adventurous send me your parts and I will take off $10 since I have no clue what is broken and what is not, but to me it sounds like the bottom lcd, touch screen , and circuit board are trash.

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.

The touch pad part of the bottom screen isn't working. My son got water on it and now the touch part isn't working. How can I fix it?

The screen wiring connector has water in it. You can take it apart and let it air dry by a fan for a couple of day. Don't put a hairdryer on it as it will hurt the board. Slow drying with air.! 50/50 chance it will work. also water could be in the connection for the bottom screen.

Brand new, not working correctly

if you can, definitely take it back for a working one. the DS probably was faulty out of the factory, it happens.

Nintendo ds games

you need to go into the system itself and delete files from the DS itself. The DS has the capability to save files. when the game starts up, go into systems and you should be able to find where the files are and start to delete some.
