    Hi

    My gf had a pink dsl which she hardle ever played, so i bought a genuine red shell for it. Yesterday i swapped them over (including the screen borders) now when booting the bottom touch screen doesnt work at all. Anyone know what i might have done ?

    Cheers

    ummm, you cut it? cut through it on accident? It no longer reconises the touch cause there is no longer a connected cable to send the motion. Unless you have some solder, and soldering iron and heat shrink, its unfixible.

    Lesson learnt: "Dont change your shell, put up with it, Remember, Pink is the new black"

    if ds lite all other functions works, but don't work touchscreen you check if the touchscreen cable is well connected, if broken just buy a touscreen, cost less than 4/5$ usually

    you also mentioned that you replaced the border frames.

    it's quite possible that you destroyed the touch screen when lifting off the original pink coloured frame from the touch screen (nintendo uses a very strong adhesive that bonds the frame to the top layer of the touch screen. if you accidentally separate the two layers of the touch screen, it will no longer function correctly.
