Hi samiam8910,
Try a different Memory card see if the same colored lines will still show, or if you do not have any other memory cards handy, remove the one you have try cleaning it with a clean cloth don't rub it hard just wipe the card gently try reinserting into your DS and see if the colored lines will still be present when turning ON, if still the same try reformatting the Memory card once again make sure you format the card from the DS itself, and try updating your DS firmware if possible check Nintedo website for any updates available.

Nothing but multi colered lines verticly on the screen

Try this:
Turn it off.
Disconnect power cord and any other device attached to it.
Take battery out.
Without anything attached. Hold down the power button for 10-15 seconds.
Connect the power cord only.
Hold down F2 (while it's off)
Turn it on while holding down F2.
Let go of F2 when something comes out of the screen.
If multi colored lines still appears.
You have either defective LCD(screen) or video card.

Screen turns off

Please get the RAM checked for the system, as the multicolor lines normally appear when the RAM goes faulty and starts heating up faster than normal.

It also affects the RAM being able to pull the data from the system.

Have multi colored horizontal lines in screen

Either your video cable needs to be re-seated,or your inverter is going bad.To fix either one you'll have to open your screens plastic housing and also remove the piecce of plastic where your power button is and lift out the keyboard.Re-seating the cable won't cost you anything,if you do it yourself.An Inverter will cost you roughly $60 plus shipping.
