    My brother let his freind play my ds (it has a DSTT) and now the touch screen doesnt work right. At the DSTT menu, it always goes to settings unless i have the stylus on something else, and when i paint (using a paint homebrew) Its higher up then where i actually have the stylus. Is there any way to fix this?

    Go to the ds real menu and in the options there is a stylus recalibration thing where you can fix your stylus.

    ask what your brothers friend did to your ds. Maybe he dropped it? Although a little drop wouldnt ruin your touch screen.

    Well they probably messed with settings because i doubt your ds will ruin its touch screen naturally. If they did change some settings i doubt they will tell you because you might hurt them lol.

    Turn around...
    Tap 2-3 inches lower on the calibration wizard.

    it's still not working! Is there a way to fix your touch screen via opening up the ds?
