Nintendo DS Touch Screen Problems?

My Nintendo DS touch screen doesn't seem to be working properly. When I touch the screen e.g pressing a letter, it actually presses something to the left of it? Why does this happen? Does the calibration on the DS help?

    It's the calibration. Try seeing if something is stuck on the edges (crumbs, pencil led, paper, fuz, etc. Get a strong piece of paper (printing paper) and go to the very edges of the DS Touch Screen and go under them.

    If problems persist...

    yes it is the calibration

    I recommend u calibrate it by going to the settings in ur DS and press calibrate... match each place it goes and it should be fixed. also remember this when playing a game that requires u to use the touch screen DO NOT PRESS IT HARD OR ROUGHLY but just soft and normal. Also it is recommended u use a stylus... using a pencil MAY damage it. if u lost a stylus u can go to gamestop and buy one. or just use a pen without the tip being out.

    the same thing happens to me! but i know why this happened to me: when i was little i played this one curling game on mario64ds and i went crazy with it, i pressed hard and i kinda messed up the area around it and i used a bunch of things other than the stylus. maybe that happened to u too?

    ya, make sure your DS is properly calibrated or it assumes ur hitting A when you wanna hit B

    the reason for it is, your DS is inproperly calibrated
