Hello, I am having trouble with the touch screen of my Old 3DS. I tried to calibrate the screen but it won't respond at all. What should I do now? Should I replace the touch screen? If I should do so, where can I get a new screen? About getting a new one, it is getting harder to buy a console here, I bought this one 2 years ago but I can't afford to buy another 3DS unfortunately.

Its upper screen would darken, by the way, I got it fixed a couple of months ago.

Is there any dirt or screen protectors on it? You should try cleaning that and see if anything changes.
You can search for touch panel replacements on your country's ebay or whatever other auction sites you have, and if you can't find them there then you should be able to get them from some aliexpress or another country's ebay with international shipping. It's just the touch panel that needs to be replaced, the screen itself is a separate part.

    Today's games look just fine at 1080 with decent 60fos unless you have disposable income it's not really worth it
