It sounds like the hinge is broken or weakened. Also, if the screen is flickering or malfunctioning it is usually cause by a damaged flex cable when the hinge gets broken.

There are 2 parts you will need, the top screen, which can be aquired via ebay etc. and you'll also need a replacement housing. If the hinge needs replacing you will actually only need one housing part, the inside topscreen part. The ds requires a triwing screwdriver to open.

The step by step replacement guide on here will show you how to do it.
