You have damaged the ribbon or dislodged the clip that is connecting the top screen to the motherboard in the lower part of the DS.

Open up the lower section and check the clip (see youtube for instructions on how to do this) if reseating the ribbon in the clip doesn't solve it you will have to purchase a new top screen as the ribbon has gotten damaged. (screens can be got cheaply on eBay)

If it is under warranty send it back to Nintendo to fix.

SOURCE: top screen of ds lite has lines

Get a tri winged screwdriver (can be bought from www.whitedog.co.uk/catalog/nintendo-wing-screwdriver/p-1169.html) take the rubber pads off and undo your DS. Check the screen connections attatched to the speaker circuit board and the connections on the main circuit board. If the cable looks to have a slight crack in it or looks to be excessively bent the buy a new connector. (you can buy them from www.consoleparts4u.co.uk/nintendo-ds-screen-connecting-ribbon-cable-107-p.asp. Hope this helps :-)

SOURCE: red ds lite screen

When the screen has a red hue there are two possibilities:
The screen is broken or the connector has moved.
The "water" is in fact the liquid crystal diplay that is broken.
Replacing the screen will cost about € 20

SOURCE: my DS Lite don't start.On

Your problem is not related to your DSlite, but with your R4. Somehow you managed to delete the R4 firmware from the microSD card.

You have probably damaged the cable that passes through the hinge on the DS, the only way to fix this is to replace the top screen on your DS lite.

Spots on top of red ds


ok, you have a DS Lite with a bad housing. Normally these housings are perfect quality but I think this one slipped the end inspection.
It do not damage the working of your DS Lite but it is a visual issue. So if you are unhappy with it and the DS Lite is new, you can go to your reseller and let him see your issue.
If he will not help you, please contact Nintendo with this problem.

DS Lite has red lines in top screen?


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...
