Hi. A coupe years back, Mario Kart used to piss me off and I would throw punches at my DS lite. Eventually, something broke and now the top screen does not latch into the different stages; it's just loose. I'm attaching a picture of what it currently looks like. I've been trying to do my own research but am having no luck in finding out if this is a shell or hinge and axle replacement we're looking at.

Can someone tell me what needs to be replaced here? If it is the shell, please specify which part of the shell (upper or lower half).

This is the only visible damage. As far as I can tell, the white piece in there (I think that's the hinge?) is intact.

Oh hey, I have the exact same issue with mine, it's even the same size break in the exact same location. If I were to buy a new shell, how difficult would it be to fix? You think I might be better off just sending it somewhere to get repaired instead? I've never had to fix something like this before.
