    Hello all, I am French so sorry, but I tryed to find how to say "calibrage d'écran" in English, and the internet translation site of voila telle me "screen calibration"...If you do not know what I mean, it is the option in the Ds menu which is used to fix the touchscreen's reactions

    then, my problem is that:

    Who cares if it still works ? You don't need to calibrate it often so I don't see it as a big problem..

    damn it ! do not want and maybe can not return it, because it is flashed [​IMG] ... it still works, but since it is not normal, i worry about it...


    FRENCH:
    Ben c'est vrai que ça marche toujours, et il ne semble pas y avoir de problèmes côté tactile, mais bon c'est tout de même un peu inquiétant, j'espère juste que ça ne va pas empirer...

    Do you have a screen protector on the DS? That might be the reason.

    The first DS I ever had did this. I RMA'd it to no complaints.

    Clean the side of the screen, sometime there's dirt in it.

    But if you don't notice any difference in playing with it, then it shouldn't matter.

    My broken down DS(silver) does this too, but its alot more endless.
    Calibration never ends, ever.
    Only the bottom screen works and its been through alot.
    Sadly its out of warrenty so Im stuck with it.
    Atleast it still runs GBA games.

    Like hte others said, the only way to repair that is to send it in for repairs or a new one. I dont think theres any way to fix it. However it shouldnt be a big deal if everything still seems to work.

    Why not use noflashme or noflashmelite to uninstall flashme.

    thanks a lot for your answers [​IMG]
    I dont think the screen is dirty, but in fact, since I have this Ds, there is a red dead piwel on the right top of the bottom screen...so, since when the calibration ends, and when i test the four points, the one on the top right doesnt react if i touch it, but reacts only if i touch a little at its right, i think maybe thee is a link between this dead pixel and my screen problem...But I will see, for now, it is not a big problem, but if it goes too bad, I will resend my ds to Nintendo...thanks for your advises!
