My nintendo ds lite screens dont even turn on but the green light shows that its powered on but no picture shows and i left it dead for about a year and finally decided to turn it on so thats my problem and bein dead for so long could that of caused the problem?
Well one things for sure if you dont play with it the ds wouldnt just refuse to play, have u dropped it on has any water been splashed on it? If you have then thats what has caused the problem so go and get it fixed, if you havnt got any water on it or dropped it then your DS must be broken im sure you can get it fixed, if not get a new one.

You have a defective screen (probably the upper). Replace it with a new one or send it to Nintendo for repair.
Never...never..put a wet cartridge in the DS Lite. Even when it is left to dry. Water is funnest for avery electronic device. You made for almost 99% certain a short circuit and blown out the microfuse (F1 or F2) on the mainboard. It could be much worse but check F1 & F2 first. See Google for their locations
Is it still under warranty? you can go to Nintendos website, type in the serial number from the back of your DS lite and see if it is covered. The warranty is 1 year. Give it a try. They offer Fed-ex shipping (prepaid).
This is a problem with the cpu on the systemboard. I've seen this problem many times if the DS Lite is felt to the ground. The contacts of the cpu are very fragile. The DS Lite turns on, green led available, even charche is working bot nothing else. Repair of this problem is almost impossible. The only thing you can do is send it to Nintendo.
You can test if it is the cpu by removing the bottom of the DS Lite and put the battery on te contacts. Press firmly on slot 1 (the aluminium cover) and turn the DS Lite on. If you got a picture on the screens then you know it for sure. The cpu is located under slot 1 and by pressing on de top of the slot you are pressing possible loose contacts back on de systemboard.
If it is not working then the cpu is to musch damaged.
When you boot the Nintendo DS you can change the illumination settings in the main menu. One the main menu, you will find a sunny symbol in the lower left corner of the screen. Click on that and you should be able to change the level of illumination. If you are also wondering if you can change the brightness during game play, you can't. Games such as Mario 64 DS come with support for brightness change but otherwise you have to do it before game play.
the same thing happened to me let your DS rest for a week or 2 and dont turn it on in that time if not try getting a number for a DS makeing in melbourn (Sorry bout the spelling my keybord ain't work'n)
