Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console
Bit confused over which replacement screen i need, as some are lcd, some say touch screen can anyone advise me please, then i read somewhere that a touch screen goes underneath a top screen on the bottom screen.
The bottom screen of the DS Lite is made up of 3 parts. The LCD Screen
which provides the pixel images you see. The Touch Screen which
basically is a piece of plastic that sits on top of the LCD portion
picking up the touches from your stylus. And a protective shield layer,
to protect from scratches. They are all glued together so unless you are
looking, you would just think they were one screen.
If its just scratched up, you really only would need to replace the protective cover, because the Touch Screen and LCD Screen should be unscathed beneath it. However, if for some reason, you don't have that protective cover, or you just want to replace the screen anyway, you have options. You can buy the Touch Screen alone (attaching it onto the already owned LCD screen), or with a new LCD screen attached. As far as the protective layer, I haven't done enough research to know if you can buy them or not, but they do sell plenty of different kinds of screen covers that you can just stick on, which I am sure would be a fine substitute. My price estimate for the Touch and LCD Screens together would be anywhere from $5 to $20.
If you decide to replace the entire screen, I urge you to know exactly what you are getting into. Follow guides, know the parts, and have the tools you need. When opening up a device like this a lot can go wrong that you were not counting on, so take care.
When I fixed my own DS Lite, I found that it was very helpful to watch demonstration videos ahead of time, so I knew the steps, and when actually working on it, making sure I had guide available.
Here are some videos and guides you can look at to make sure you know what the project entails, as well as how to go about it:

There are probably better guides out there so do some research on your own as well.
I hope that helps.
