If you look at the board where the cable attaches you will see a small black line on the connector.
That black line is acually a clip lift it with a small screwdriver or even you finger nail it will stay up then the cable removes easy.

This is a common issue, it happens when the ribbon cable develops internal fractures or has been knocked loose. EB games will replace the top screen, as this is where the cable is stored. In rare cases it is an issue with the logic board. I recommend getting it replaced, but you could open up the system and see if the cable is loose. If it isn't, you're going to need to get the screen/logic board replaced.
The cable for the touchscreen is one with 4 conductors that connect directly to the overlay on the face of the LCD. The flat ribbon connector on the main board is quite delicate. The three connectors for the bottom screen are on the right side of the component side of the DS phat board. The touchscreen is labeled P6. On the DS Lite, the connector is closer to the R button.
Hey, you need a new outer case and a new top screen. There is a ribbon that comes out of the top screen on the top case and connects to the bottom one. There is a very good chance that ribbon has torn off. So you need to replace the top screen and a new outer case with a new hinge. I would send it to Nintendo, I believe they offer a flat rate service for the Nintendo DS Lite.
Well something more appropriate i guess would be my ongoing issue with DS's that have had screens replaced.
if you could describe something for me
as the unit will not power ,,, plug in the charger, if it is as i suspect you will get an orange light illuminate for 1 second, after it goes off the unit is unresponsive until you unplug and replug the charger.
if this describes your problem i would be most interested to hear weather you used the ORIGINAL screen or if it is a replacement screen
