Professor Smartie that “screw thing’ is actually a Variable Resistor. Some people also call the (Trim) Pot for Trimmer Potentiometer. Your DS Lite should have two of those. VR1 is for the upper display and VR2 for the lower display with touch. Measured looks like a 50K pot. Set your pot that the resistance is around 15K between point 1 and 2. You can still make adjustments if your find scan lines on your display etc.To high and your screen may just fail or your power circuit, so be careful . BTW, you do realize that this needs to be soldered in place. Now for as to where to get it, I’d start at places like this
