My bottom touch screen no longer reacts to the touch. I'm going to replace the failed part myself, but I'm not sure which part to purchase. There seems tobe the touch screen sensor( the part I think I should buy) and there is the bottom lcd screen part. They both cost the same. Are they the same part, or two different ones? Which one sould I get?

first try to calibrate the touch screen.Take all games out turn on then go to the very small ds on the bottom touch screen. If you can't touch it move it with the cross down then hit a. Then select the option all the way to the right it looks like cross hairs that's the calibration screen fallow instructions. If that doesn't fix it it could be a broken screen or a loose ribbon.
You could try calibrating the screen. To do this, you must go to the little DS in the center of the screen when you turn the DS on. Then touch the yellow square on the far right. It should give you instructions from that point on. Make sure that your stylus doesn't have a scratch on it! If it has a little nick down the middle, then your screen might not get a clear reading as to what you touched.
Go to the main menu, then touch the mini DS in the bottom center of the screen. Touch the yellow icon farthest to the right. Follow the instructions from there on out. This is called calibrating your touch screen.
Normally replacing the touch screen will fix these types of problems. Please note that there are two screens on the bottom and not just one. You have the touch screen and under that you have an LCD screen just like the LCD on the top. You will have to remove the touch screen from the LCD as it has double sided foam tape holding them together. Also, the small clip that holds the ribbon cable to the board is easily broken, so be careful with it. If you break it you will not be able to get the ribbon cable to stay in and the touch screen will no longer work and your DS will likely not stay on.
need more info. try removing a screen protector you bought. those can make the touch screen less sensitive. also go into options and re-calibrate the touch screen.if all eles fails send it back to nintendo for repair
