Been trying to calibrate my touch screen for a bit, but it never finishes. In that I mean, I'll continue to tap the indicated areas that pop up when in the calibration under the settings, but it just keeps going and going. Is it possible Luma is affecting that somehow?

Anyone else had similar issues with their 3DS?

Luma does not interfere with touch calibration. Could be hardware failure (needs new digitizer).
The only occasion where I saw this was a touch panel so badly broken it transformed itself into small crumbs when replacing it. Badly positioned screen protectors or dirt between the edges and the panel can also cause weird touch issues on 2|3DS systems as well as the Wii U Gamepad.

Software tests:
  • Try calibrating touch in latest GodMode9 (has nothing to do with the calibration in settings).
  • Open 3DSIdent-GUI → press (Start)+(Select) to open button test. Lower screen should show a mouse pointer that can be moved with the stylus.
Good luck and have fun!

Thank you. I will try your suggestions, as well as making sure the screen is cleaned well. Otherwise, physically, the screen is in good shape.
