Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console
I just got my ds yesterday for xmas. I was playing it this morning and the lights for both top and bottom screen worked fine. I quit playing for a little bit and when i turned it back on to play, the tops screen is dull but not the bottom. I don't know why. I tried to change the brightness using the (sun) icon but it didn't help. What is wrong with the screen?

Obviously make sure that you are using the card properly but if you have had it for a while that's probably not even a question.
It sounds like the issue may be software related.Your DS probably needs to be repaired. If your DS is less than a year old, Nintendo will cover the cost of the repair. If the DS is older than one year, then you will probably have to pay $75 plus shipping and handling. Nintendo's number is 1800 255 3700.

When you start your Nintendo DS, before you choose to load the game with your touch screen, there is a little sun icon in the lower left of that screen, Touching that will adjust your brightness.

Well, if the lines stay on the screen even when the DS is turned off, it means the LCD screen is broken, thus the crystals are flowing and blotching. This means the screen must be repaired, however you don't have to buy a new one.
Nintendo has a page about original DS repairs Here. They also offer certain warranties, I'd see if one applies to your situation. (They also have a more broad repair page Here.)
If you feel like doing the repair yourself, it is apparently very easy and costs about $40 to replace the screen. There are many different repair tutorials online. (I just did a Google search for "DS top screen repairs") Here is one of those sites.
I hope this was of assistance.

ah, this happened to my cousin a year ago, his younger brother(2 years old) stabbed a pencil into the ds card slot and the top screen turns dark and he cant play most ds games.
your solution: i dunno how to fix this but u can try buying touch screen based games like animal crossing wild world and that may do.
