A black spot means the top LCD screen is cracked / broken unfortunatelly for you.

If you are technically inclined you can buy a replacement in any online store and replace it by yourself but its a bit complicated as you practically need to carefully dissasemble all the unit to do that and would need at least some skils, a special thomson 3 windings small screwdriver (sometimes the same store sells it) and small blade and philips screewdrivers. You can find a video and instructions to do that over the web and decide if too difficult for you.

Good Luck...

Call Nintendo (1-800-255-3700), you are covered. You do not need a receipt, just the serial number from the back of the ds is all you need. They will replaced with a new one.

Your DS Lite is damaged and needs to be sent to Nintendo for repair.

Nintendo will likely tell you the unit is beyond repair and must be replaced.

If you want to avoid the middle man, you can always purchase a new DS Lite from your local electronics retailer.
