Greetings if you have some tech skills you can open the device and re conect the screen cable, may be check some resistors, if you havent any experience you must take it to a service center.
the most common screen issues are because of hits, or moisture
I hope this answer helps.

SOURCE: top screen is non readable nintendo ds

Hi you have done one of two things to your ds.
1) you have somehow unstuck the top plastic protection screen that covers the lcd screen and re-stuck it but have got fingerprints etc on it, hence the blur.
2) The more obvious thing is you dropped the de or gave it a bang and the ribbon feeding from the top screen to the lower screen through the left hand hinge is damaged or it has become slightly unclipped where it meets the motherboard.

Either way you will need to take the DS apart to solve. It can be tricky so if you are not confident bring it to a repair shop, it is an easy fix and wont cost the earth to fix.

If it is still under warranty send it back to Nintendo to fix.

SOURCE: my original nintendo DS has little white lines in the top screen!

Well, if the lines stay on the screen even when the DS is turned off, it means the LCD screen is broken, thus the crystals are flowing and blotching. This means the screen must be repaired, however you don't have to buy a new one.

Nintendo has a page about original DS repairs Here. They also offer certain warranties, I'd see if one applies to your situation. (They also have a more broad repair page Here.)

If you feel like doing the repair yourself, it is apparently very easy and costs about $40 to replace the screen. There are many different repair tutorials online. (I just did a Google search for "DS top screen repairs") Here is one of those sites.

I hope this was of assistance.

I'm not to familiar with the DS's but i beleive that is how they are supposed to boot if a cartridge is already in the unit. If not then there may be an option when booting without a cartridge where you can change the settings so that it will boot to the main DS screen before booting the game. I would check this first then seek further help from a more adequate expert on here.

Is this the top screen or the bottom screen? The top isn't meant to react to the stylus.
