this is basically because your top screen is faulty and needs to be replaced. You'll probably find that the ribbon of the top screen has kinked and torn over time.

The bottom screen still lights up because the ds sends power to both screens but then when it realizes, nothing is getting through to the top one, it switches itself off

hope that helps
