The way it was written suggested that he was talking about the second DS Lite.

Sorry, I didn't clarify. "This one" is the broken hinge one. So in other words, the white one I linked to in my first post has the broken hinge, the faulty touch screen and L/R buttons.

My other DS Lite is more or less normal.

This happened to me, too.
When the top screen isn't connected, the DS won't turn on. So, I guess you really do need it. I've since "fixed" the problems (used a bunch of things), so it's not hanging off anymore. It actually opens and closes normally, but I can tell that it's going to fall off again (top screens getting loose again).

If you're handy with electronics and such, you can try replacing just the DS lite shell, which is MUCH cheaper than sending to Nintendo or buying another DS Lite (new or used).
And remember, if you don't know what you're really doing, and something major breaks, you'll be spending more money to replace it all.
