Could someone tell me what the problem is with this 3ds xl?

I was just wondering if anyone could tell me what is wrong with this 3ds xl (first gen.) I'm not sure if the LCD screen is broken or just the digitizer. If anyone knows what is probably wrong, could you let me know and the cost of the repair it would need. Thank you.

It appears that the screen is cracked. Unfortunately you can't replace just the screen on the 3DS XL, you'll have to change the digitizer as well (these components are stuck together, separating them is fairly difficult and there's a great chance of breaking the digitizer).

This guide will show you how to disassemble your console. You can buythe parts you'll need here.
