    Hey everybody

    I've got a movable touch screen in the lower right corner, when i apply pressure with my stylus over there, the screen goes down and makes a cracking noise, it's because of the space on the left i guess of the touchscreen

    Are there more people with this problem? And did anyone fix it on his own

    You've probably been tapping your DS too hard. I'd say it's too worn down for a repair. You have to either remove and replace or call Bintendo.

    ........Well tapping to hard?
    I never ''tapped'', and it was this since i got it, it just seems to be placed wrong because there is a whole gap on the side between the touch screen and the body of the nds..i can stick a 3folded paper in it

    If it's new, take it back to the store for a replacement. If it isn't new enough for that, send it to Nintendo for a replacement. If it's out of warranty, fix it yourself.

    No way. I got the same problem on my first DS Lite. Luckily I noticed it the day I got it and promptly got it replaced in-store.
    when using the stylus normally there is an annoying creaking sound. I could live with it moving a little, but the creaking just screams future structual integrity problems.

    Its probably down to the corner not being glued down properly. The unit I have now, has solid corners on all sides. No creaking, however hard I press down with astylus./

    That effect is probably from the touch screen film touching the actual display. Nothing to worry about.
