Did what with the DS Lite? Citation?

Game Boy Advance: 240x160 pixels
Nintendo DS Lite: 256x192 pixels

You'd need some sort of circuit to insert the black windowbox pixels at the top, bottom, left, and right.

I believe what he meant is that the original DS LCD has been transplanted into a DS Lite. Why in the world you'd do that is beyond me.

If he means the DS Lite LCD has been used in a GBA, the main problem is the physical dimension differences. If you feed it a signal as-is, I can almost promise you that it'll just be a 240x160 box in the top-left of the LCD, with the border on the right and bottom being garbled repeated lines from another frame or some other don't-care-condition anomaly.

Don't need to replace the full screen there, just the CCFL.

You should be able to get/build a replacement LED strip fairly easily/cheaply, given how large that CCFL seems to be.

You can't just do that. If you want that, learn some about video signals and how displays are driven.

I think this question came up previously. Here's an earlier thread about it:

Espozo's reply here is the right answer, use a GBA SP screen. Apparently the mod kits are harder to come by now(?). What is your budget? You can find premodded systems on ebay.

no i meant a backlit screen with great pixel response time because the sp 2 has lower pixel response time instead of great
