Hello there! First of all let me tell you that your nintendo ds can be repaired and it is not trash... what you need is to get the bottom screen to be repaired ....you can do it sending it to the nintendo repair shop or by doing it yourself by following this youtube guide http://www.youtube.com/user/nintendorepair.
If the screens don't come on or the top screen flashes white right after the power is turned on, the wires connecting the top screen to the bottom have broken or worn down. You would have to take the case apart and splice in new wire to repair it.
This is basically due to a faulty screen. Depending on which screen flashes white when you first turn the DS on, this tells you which screen is faulty. If the bottom screen flashes then it is the top screen that is faulty. If the top screen flashes then it is the bottom screen that is faulty. Screens are fairly easy to fit although the top screen is the harder out of the two, you can buy them off of ebay for around £10 and if you google DS screen replacement there are some good guides out there showing you how to do it.
Depending on which screen flashes, one of them has died. If the bottom screen flashes then the top screen needs replacing, if the top screen flashes then the bottom screen needs replacing, the easier of the 2.
This is usually the top screen at fault as the ribbon cable gets damaged when opening/closing especially if it gets sticky, from sticky fingers. Sometimes it's the bottom screen and sometimes it's a corroded motherboard(this needs my expert attention!). But 9/10 it's the topscreen.
The fact the bottom screen flashes and the top doesn't indicates that the top screen needs replaced! Although do not attempt this as a D.I.Y project as its more complex than some think. And the 2 speakers also need to be desoldered and then resoldered to the ribbon on the new top screen and this requires soldering skills. If you stay in the glasgow area you welcome to contact me for repairs.
