I recently talked to a user on another forum with the same issue. The solution was to make absolutely sure the top ribbon cable was firmly connected. He used a tool to push it in farther than his fingers could, which fixed the issue.

It's worth a shot at least. Just don't break your DS while attempting to fix it, obviously.

now i'm pretty sure it's the cable cause i accidentally cut it apart with a razor. with the top lcd detached, i tried to power on the ds and nothing changes. i'm going to order a replacement LCD and see if it'll get fix.
