press "A" instead of using the touch screen

New touch-screen membrane probably, they're not expensive

try calibrating it go to to the main screen press on the bottom centre icon (its a picture of ds console) then click on the last box its the yellow one on the right hand side ...then off you go hopefully this will sort it out .

Hia mate, you'll need to buy one of these:

dealextreme.com/det…245

Cost about £2-2.50 depending on what the exchange rate is.

(You'll then need to your open ds up and remove the old module and install the new module)

Did you pay for it with a debit or credit card? If so, use a statement to prove you purchased it from there and return for repair.
