Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console
I bought my ds lite about 8 months ago and the top screen is blank like its just white and nothing shows on it but the bottom screen is fine?
Top screen relacement is not to difficult if you can do basic soldering for the speakers. The ribbon cable is a little bit of a pain to get into the small hole but there are plenty of articles on the web on hoe to od so. I did mine in about 30 minutes. The triabgualr screws are the hard part if you do not have the tool but you can purchase that as well online.

I had this same problem on my Lite earlier this year. It was still under warranty, so I sent it in to Nintendo repair, who replaced the hinge assembly. Based on the symptom and the repair, I suspect it's caused by a loose/damaged ribbon cable between the upper screen and the rest of the Lite.
I'd be leery of trying to fix it yourself (I've worked on similar problems in laptops), but if your Lite is out of warranty, you might try one of the third-party repair services. Depending on whether the ribbon cable is damaged or just loose, they may not even need any replacement parts.
