Re: The bottom screen has scratches all over
It may not be what you think.
Check it closely there could be a screen protector on it that just peels away and you apply a new one to it.
When you first buy a DS it comes with a set to apply straight away.
These are easy to get anywhere they sell Nintendo's.

a new screen and digitizer screen will set you back no more than £7 for both. You will also need a tri wing screwdriver. Often these items can be found on ebay and include the screwdriver. It's fiddly so get someone good with electronics to help. video's are on youtube - Do Use Them! :O)

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.
.Actually will be helpful to find if you unit is been damaged from a scratch or a Crack display.The one on the front is Called Faceplate.The one inside(the lcd is called screen).
If your screen is cracked you can order one on line and follow some tutorial.If the scratch is from the faceplate you can try to open the machine and clean the scratch with some plastic polish
Contact Nintendo via their website and try to locate a repair centre near you, or they may be able to get it sent off to be fixed.
Look on eBay, there are lots of these being broken by small children and you could salvage a screen from one of those.
You can find places that specialise in console repairs that can do the job for you also.
The good news for you is it's not the actual screen that is damaged. Threre is a touchpad that sits ontop of the screen that you are really pressing on, so you may even be able to find just the touchscreen and replace the one you have.
The only bad thing about the repair is I cannot advise you to try it yourself unless you are very electronically minded. There are bits inside that are extremely sensitive and can snap with the slightest amount of pressure.
