Guy, check on where the ribbon cable comes from. Use these guides DS Lite Repair to disassemble your DS. Post an image of your damaged wire and the location. It is most likely the ribbon cable from the upper LCD. You can repair that by replacing your upper LCD. Here is Here is the guide for that. Hope this helps, good luck.

If the ribbon cable is ripped, it is most likely not fixible. If you know of a repair shop that fixes game consoles, ask them. Otherwise, it is probably not replaceable.
