    Hello today I notice my 3ds touch calibration was off so i go to re-calibrate it and the re calibration processes it doesn't seem to help. It will either do minimum to help or the calibration processes just wont end. I can't send it to Nintendo because I have luma cfw. Any help or ideas would be appreciated.

    Ill leave this here if anyone comes by it and hope that helps anyone that sees it. After I posted this I had to head out and left my 3ds home (I normally bring it with me when I go out) so it was just sitting for about 2 hours and then I tried re-calibrating it again and this time it worked flawlessly. I guess it had to cool for a while before it could calibrate properly.

    your touch screen's flex cable must be loose or not connected properly to the motherboard....

    That's a possibility there is most likely some hardware damage just cant get it checked by Nintendo (luma cfw) thanks for the input

    if u can open the back cover, then you can do it yourself.
    it's very easy just unscrew the back cover and open it and u'll find the touch screen connecter.
    there is no need to go to Nintendo for this(if it is the problem that i have said)....
