    Hey everyone, a really stange issue just happened out of nowhere.

    My setup is: O3DS with 9.2 on sysNAND, then MenuHax>Homebrew Launcher>CakesFW>emuNAND

    In-game one moment the touch screen became somewhat decalibrated, the next it stopped accepting input. I thought it was a smaller issue, seeing as everything else was working fine, including its display.

    On exiting to the system menu in emuNAND, the touchscreen still didn't respond, but the cross/analogue pads also did not accept input. I went back in-game, and the pads work just fine there.

    I rebooted into sysNAND expecting this to be a CFW problem, but lo and behold, the same behavior is happening on sysNAND.

    On Homebrew Menu it accepts input from the pads, but not from the touchscreen.

    I don't even know how to begin troubleshooting this. Please help!

    Bump. I know this is super weird. Trying to find any leads to at least get started.

    sounds more like a hardware issue.

    If touchscreen fails in sysnand without any hax running, your 3DS touchscreen died (probably)

    You can get a new touch screen for like $5-$10 on eBay. They're fairly simple/easy to install as long as you're very careful and don't mind opening up your system.
