Top screen won't lock
The most likely reason for the screen being unstable is that when the shell casing was damaged the top screens ribbon was damaged at the same time.
You can sort both these issues out but it is not a small job, you will need a few specialist tools, a new top screen, basic soldering skills, delicate handling and plenty of patience.
If you are willing to take on this task then everything you need for the job is readily avaliable from ebay.
The stuff you need are:
1x Replacement shell/ housing/ casing for DS lite.
1x Replacement top screen for DS lite.
1x Precision tri-wing screwdriver.
1x Soldering iron (ideally with 1mm tip, but not essential) and solder.
1x Flat tool, i.e. craft knife, flat head screwdriver.
1x Precision cross head screwdriver.
If you click on my name it will take you to my profile page, once there have a look at my guides I have written, you will need "DS lite dismantle process" and "DS lite top screen replacement".
If you require further help or advice then please get back to me and I will do my best to assist you as best I can.
