It is a problem with the flatcable of the upper TFT screen or the TFT itself. Only solution is treplacement of the TFT screen (flatcable is not separate replaceble). Because you say it is not even one year old, you still have warranty. Send it to Nintendo for repair!
Might be worth taking it into a phone repair shop to see if they can replace the LCD screen. (yes, a phone repair shop - a lot of them do portable console screens too!) If they can't do it, it's probably unfixable realistically.
There is a ribbon that connects the top screen of the ds to the motherboard. It is possible that this ribbon became damaged when the hinge broke. A possible fix would be to replace the upper screen. Hope this helps.
to remove the top screen the back cover actually slides off after removing all the screws from the front, once thats off you can see the ribbon cable coming through the hinge, what you need to do is coil the ribbon cable up into a tight little roll and push it through the hinge it's easier if you pull the two little cables out first. hope this helps
