Nintendo DS touch screen problem

Well I had my Nintendo DS for 2 years, everything is fine except for the touch screen. The words are scratchy or disorted and makes it difficult to read. Do I have to buy another one or is there a solution to this?

There are trade in for new DS Lite or DSi at some Gamestops and EB games. I suggest getting a screen protector, you can pick them up cheap at Walmart with a new stylus so it wont scratch anymore. Some games have regular control options like Super Mario DS. I wouldn't suggest just replacing the screen (costs more than the price of the ds).

My daughter has a DS Lite which works fine except the bottom left hand of the touch screen does not recognise the stylus - she has to touch the screen 3 or 4mm away from the actual point to make it work....

you could try to recalibrate the screen but unfortunatly sounds like you will have to replace the touch screen. its a very common problem.

Ds lite dropped while open, touchscreen now white.

With white screens it usually the LCD that went out, since D.S. do not have a reset button, the only way to reset it to Factory settings would be to remove that battery, and you would need to remove the little screws on the back. I would leave that last. However if you guys have had this DS for less than a year i would contact Nintendo, or go to the website
because you would still be under the one year Manufactures warranty. I would highly recommend to not state it was dropped. Just that the screen went blank all of a sudden. Touch screen works fine. Make sure there is no physical damage though, as that usually voids warranty. I had to do that for my Wii. No cost to me since under one year. If its been longer then the year then you could do the hard reset by removing the batter for a few mins.
Good Luck!

Touch screen doesn't light up

Your problem is with the LCD behind the touch screen. The bottom scren on your DS is actually two screens. An LCD and a touch screen on top of it. Either your cable has come loose inside the DS or the LCD is possibly bad. This can be fixed.

The other option is that the electronics feeding the LCD have gone bad in which case you might as well buy a new DS. But check the screen first.

If the DS is under a year old you can send it to Nintendo for free repair.
