    My son lost a game and hit the DS with his open palm.

    Both screens went blank but the green power light was on. There was no sound.

    He closed it, turned it off, and reopened/restarted it. Still nothing.

    He hit it again with an open palm, the old remedy, hair of the dog, etc., but nothing happened.

    I just went through some basic diagnositcs, turn off on, remove/reinsert a game cartridge, open the rechargable battery panel and clean battery and etc. Nothing works. Still two blank screens and no sound or activity sounds.

    Blank screens after turn on power on DS Lite. No sound. But the green light is on

  • SeanOOO May 25, 2009

    I dropped my DS lite and when I opened it the screens were blank but the green light was on. a couple of times I got most of the welcome screen by tapping it on the side with my hand, but that was it - no functionality. Yes I have turned it on and off, removed the game, removed the battery etc. Is it something to do with the thing that temporarily switches it off when you close the console? I am stumped.

On what game system? Have you checked that it is powered up and all the cables are connected to the TV properly, as per the manual?

The Nintendo DS lite powers on, but the screen is blank..

When you power the unit on, watch to see if either screen flashes. It's a very quick white flash. If that happens, the LCD that DIDN'T flash is bad and needs to be replaced. The unit will shut off immediately afterwards. If the unit stays on but there is no display on either screen, the board is bad and the unit is scrap unless you want to disassemble and reflow. This is a rare problem but it does happen.

Upper screen blank

That could be normal. Some games don't use both screens. If it never works with any games, or in the main menu then the screen has failed. You will need to call Nintendo customer service for a repair (probably free under Warranty) if that's the case. Hope this helps.
