Question about Nintendo DS Console
My DS Lite has recently suffered some damages from my brother's recklessness (he keeps it in his pocket and allows it to be tossed around in his bag). I noticed that while playing ALL games, there are some red lines running through the TOP screen, which is especially noticeable when the screen is black (when the DS is on). When the screen is not black or a dark color, there is noticeable "redness" in the colors of the game. For example, I was playing Pokemon and the background had a strange red hue, when it should have been blue. I noticed that the red lines mostly show up when the top screen is flipped all the way to the back (past 90°), but when I position the screen to a different angle (closer to 90° or just a bit more) the screen no longer has the red lines running through it. I'm not sure what exactly is wrong with the DS and I couldn't find much on this problem online. Could someone please tell me what might be broken or wrong with my DS? Is it a problem with the LCD top screen or perhaps something with the hinge?? (I would send it to Nintendo to get it fixed, but I don't have 75$+ right now ... and it doesn't seem too difficult to replace the part myself.) Thank you in advance.
It could also be running fluid from the screen's gel padding. I doubt that, though... It's best to buy or order a replacement screen. It's actually not too expensive and is not too hard to DIY. The problem with that, is it's really easy to accidentally break something while opening up a DS, especially the DS lites. Another problem is, you need a triwing screwdriver to open up the DS, which can only be found online. So, if you don't want to buy anthing online, you should just ask gamestop or something to repair it for you. It'll come at a price though...

It may seem easy to replace it yourself but it isn't easy at all. I just recommend either sending it to Nintendo for $75 or just bringing it to Gamestop or EB Games and have them replace the screen.

Screen might be slightly diconnected from the tossing around or it might be messed up
