    My touchscreen isn't responding in the right places. Like when I touch the letter A in pictochat it instead goes to shift. And when I try to color the whole box in Pictochat I can't color like the last 2 centimeters in the right of the screen. This isn't only for Pictochat but for every game. When I touch something it doesn't work so I have to touch a centimeter to the right of what I want to touch so it will work. When I try to calibrate the squares just circle around. My DS lite has no scratches. And it was like this for about 1-1.5 years already and now it just got annoying. I really don't want to buy a new touch screen or anything is there any other solution.


    Also my L and R buttons don't work a lot. The only way to make them work I have to press it hard for it to work. When I blow it works for about 10-20min then I shut my DS off put it in my pocket and then when I want to play again the L and R don't work again and I have to blow again and it gets annoying.

    With the touch screen being off, yah that's what happened to my DS when I played pokemon ranger on it too much. The best thing you can do it try and calibrate it.

    Yah that's what happened with me too...

    You can do one of the following:

    1. Learn to live with it (I did for about half a year)
    2. Buy a new DS
    3. Buy a replace meant touch screen from Deal Extreme
    4. Or send it to Nintendo for repairs

    My brother had the same problem with his touch screen and I think it's because he left it out in the sun for too long. It's like it's molten or something.

    Have you try the local stores? Maybe they have some specific spare parts. If they don't, I guess you have to take your nds to the official nintendo service centre or get a new ds lite.

    I had my DS for about 3 years. So I don't think that my warranty will work. And my Serial number on my DS lite is ripped off.

    I got another DS lite that is broken but has a perfect Touch Screen. Will it work if I take that touch screen and replace it with the touch screen I have right now on my DS that has the wierd touch screen? I know I have to open it up but I am also kind of scared of my DS braking. I rather have a DS that has a bad touch screen then no DS at all.

    Uhh you didn't have to buy a broken DS to get a replacement touch screen. They sell replacement modules online...

    you need to find a service that will do the work for you or buck up and get a tri wing screwdriver and do it yourself.
