One morning I woke up to play my DS and when I turned it on my bottom screen had a black slash across the bottom lefthand corner. I experienced this problem once with my SP. Eventually my SP screen went entirely black. Is it because it's a LCD screen? How can I fix it?

The bottom screen is made up of 2 parts the screen itself and the touch screen mambrane which sits on top of the screen, if the touch part is still woking then the screen is faulty and will need to be replaced. There are some good videos on youtube that will run you through the process of changing just the screen.
well, first you should see if it needs charging. Then turn on the ds and touch the little ds on the bottom of the screen. Go to the calibrate or the thing that is on the right side of the person. Try thr test and dont stop it until its over. Try touching the screen again but if that doesnt work call nintendo which the number is in the manual or find it at www.nintendo.com. See if that works.
2. Go to Settings (Little icon on the bottom of the touch screen)
3. Select Pink button
4. Select "GBA Mode" (pink button on the right)
5. Select "Touch screen"
This is mainly affective for GBA games, not DS games unfortunately. If you are really that desperate to play DS games properly, then either hope you can still claim it on warranty and/or buy a brand new DS (maybe even the new DSi).
Your problem is with the LCD behind the touch screen. The bottom scren on your DS is actually two screens. An LCD and a touch screen on top of it. Either your cable has come loose inside the DS or the LCD is possibly bad. This can be fixed.
The other option is that the electronics feeding the LCD have gone bad in which case you might as well buy a new DS. But check the screen first.
If the DS is under a year old you can send it to Nintendo for free repair.
it happens if there is moist or dust or sand inside the ds so breath INWARDS through the L or R buttons but dont pull too hard but **** as much as you can until it becomes alright plus keep doing it ... it took me 10 mins to get it right
if he dropped it then the bottom should not show up as well. the bottom screen you can play the older games plus get instructions for the new games. if they are both out then it is the motherboard. if it is top only, it is the lcd screen and you can get that replaced for about $45. find a place to fix it or send it to nintendo.
