You have a bad top/upper LCD, most likely the ribbon cable has been compromised. Click here, and choose "Upper LCD" for instructions on how to replace it. There are a number of services on eBay that do it for a reasonable price. If it is still under warranty and the hinge isn't broke I'd go to the Nintendo web site to set up a repair. Many times when the upper/top lcd displays in an off color, as yours is, the hinge is broken and allows the ribbon cable to move in ways it was not meant to, thus damaging it.
