I believe this question has been asked before. You should search before you ask for help. Regardless, the general solution seems to be that it is an LCD defect and you should be able to return it to Nintendo and they will repair it for free.

This sounds like the fuses on the logicboard have blown, you will have to take the back cover off to to have a look at the logicboard, the fuses are very small, you will need good soldering skills to replace them. here is a diagram of the logicboard and where the fuses are situated, they are marked F1 and F2:
Could you post back and tell me if the screens come on at all, if they do it might be your battery.

The screen that does NOT flash will need replacing.
It may look fine and dandy but there is still an issue.
The reason for the flash is that when switched on the DS lite performs a qucik check of the screens, if there is an issue the unit will switch itself off again.
My answer is, judging that you have said you have taken it apart to have a look that you are willing to repair it yourself.
Have a look on ebay for the relevant screen (plenty of people on ebay stock them) and then replace the screen that does NOT flash.
This should solve your issue.
