As Bob (HowlingMad) said, the Ds and Ds Lite will turn off immediately after being turned on if the connection to the top screen is broken.
Check the connections between the screen and Ds, if they look damaged then try replacing the ribbon cable for the top screen (or you may have to replace the whole screen - i'm not sure if it is built together on the Ds Lite). If the connections appear fine then it may be that due to the movement the connector has come out of it's socket/plug (also like Bob said), this is easily fixable if this is the case and would require you to take the casing off your Ds and plug it back in.
It's likely one of three things. Either your ribbon cable that connects the LCD to the board has come loose from it's connector, it has broken, or the LCD has gone out. These are the most common. Depending on which it is will depend on the steps you'll need to take to replace it. However if you got it for Christmas and it was new it is under warrenty and you can contact Nintendo for a free replacement DS.
