You can buy replacement screens (top and bottom) cheaply at most console repair shops. They will also advertise themselves as "console mod shops and modchip etc etc"
They can also do the replacement for you while you are there in most cases.

    If your Nintendo is still under warranty then I would send it to them to have repaired.

    If not, then you will be charged a fair amount for them to do it out of warranty and is the reason I advised the console repair shops.

    The other thing is if the damage is not a fault with the unit, but a fault caused by the user, then it will not be covered by warranty anyway.

You can buy special screwdrivers for taking the DS apart then just look on youtube for a video of how to fix this. You will need a bit of patience but it can be done.

The top screen of my nintendo ds lite is red

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.

Screen is red

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.

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...
