Nintendo DS Solutions to Problems

by on May.12, 2014, under Nintendo Ds

The Nintendo DS is a hand-held computer game console with Nintendo’s special dual-screen design feature. The leading screen is used for seeing graphics, and the bottom screen is touch sensitive. When damaged or not operating properly, the screen can render some games unplayable. To fix the screen on a Nintendo DS, you can attempt the following list of techniques I’ve used to fix mine.


-Consistent lines appear when the power is on.

-The screen remains blank despite the fact that the power is on.

-Screen ends up being blank after a couple of minutes of video game play or display is faint.


-Inspect the battery to make sue it’s charged, in which case the LED light is lit green.
-If you are using the A/C power adapter, ensure the adapter and wall plug are firmly linked.
-Check the battery contacts and clean them, if needed, with a pencil eraser, making sure the entire surface is clean.
-Examine the placement of the battery pack to make sure it’s linked effectively.
-Replace the battery if there is less than 3 hours of battery life left, which is supposed to last between 5 to 10 hours, as this shows a weak battery.
-If none of the above is offered, the leading screen may be damaged, and you have to replace the leading screen

2. Problem:
-Touch panel is not responsive.
-Touch panel reacts, but reacts at various areas of the screen


-Turn Nintendo DS on and touch the bottom screen to enter main menu. Touch menu button to get in settings menu. Select the right-most calibration icon (it is yellow and has a cross hair )and press A to re-calibrate the touch screen. Touch each red square with the stylus as it appears. After this test is over, check the level of sensitivity. Tap validate, then stop and then yes. The system will shut down and save the settings.
– If after re-calibration, the touch screen is still not responding correctly, there could be foreign matter along the edges of the touch screen. Get a dry toothbrush. Keep Nintendo DS at a vertical angle and apply slight pressure with your thumb to the touch screen, developing a small space along the housing edges. Use the toothbrush to very carefully remove any foreign material from the space and gently brush side to side getting rid of away any debris and dirt.
-If none of the above steps works, the touch screen might be damaged. Replace the touch screen.

3. Problem:
– The battery can not be charged.

– If using an AC adapter, make certain the AC power adapter is properly linked to Nintendo DS and to the wall outlet also.
-Try resetting A/C power adapter by disconnecting from Nintendo DS and wall outlet for a number of minutes. Reconnect AC power adapter according to manual guidelines.
-Remove the battery from Nintendo DS for a few minutes approximately and re-insert.
