The ribbon connections on the DS can be very temperamental. Use a pair of tweezers to really push home the small ribbons into the connectors. On the larger ribbons there is a ridge of plastic which you can pull with a finger nail, against the connector to get a real snug fit. After you have pushed down the clamps on the connectors, check to see that the ribbons are in straight.

If you would like to calibrate your screen... Turn the DS on without a DS card inserted (or with auto mode turned off). Then touch the DS icon in the bottom middle of the screen. Press the far right yellow icon, with a crosshair in it. You will then be taken to the calibrate screen. Touch the small red squares on the screen as they appear.
Each time you charge your battery, the charge capacity is decreased. After a large amount of charges, the capacity is decreased to an amount only enough to turn on a/the screen(s) for a second. Try getting a new battery.
double check that both cable/ribbons are connected properly to the motherboard, the small thin ribbon which curls over the top of the motherboard is the one which powers and reads the touch screen so double check this!!
if this is all in fine then im sorry to say your touch screen is broken and will need replacing!
If you have droped it, you probobaly knocked the screen from the touchpad. Dont worry, you can fix this. All you have to do is go into the bottom of the ds with a screw driver. Then move the screen back into place. If your scared you shouldnt be. Its very easy to fix and you wont screw up your ds unless you pull of the sreen but that is very hard to do.
If the bottom screen was taken out then there would be a loosen or unplugged conductor, maybe only the touchscreen wire is out, you can open the system and plug it back to the jack. If the wire is broken then you need a new touchscreen (not the whole display, just the touch pad, like $9.99 + s&h).
