    Gambia, The
    seems to me like its either a battery problem, if the charger completely fixes the problem.
    or a contact problem... only way to check would be to replace the battery with a new one, and if that doesnt work, opening up the ds and check the contacts leading away from the top screen.

    im no expert on the second option though, but there should be some guides online for that, if you want to try it

    You must test your DS. Clydefrosch is telling you how to test your DS. Can you borrow someone else's battery, and see if your screen problem goes away? If the problem remains, after trying a different battery, you might want to check the ribbon cable connection for the top screen. With some knowledge, and ten minutes, you can easily reset your DS top screen's ribbon cable. The DS is a fairly simple machine to work with IMO. YouTube has many videos for DS Top Screen Problems and how to fix the problems. Good luck!
