NINTENDO DS LITE POWERS ON AND THEN IMMEDIATELY OFF
My daughter dropped her ds on our linoleum floor and now it will turn on and then immediately off. I tried charging the battery and even replacing it with another good battery from another DS we have, but still the same problem. The right most light turns green when powered on for about 1 second but then shuts off (bottom lcd screen flashes when power goes off but never lit prior to).
Re: NINTENDO DS LITE POWERS ON AND THEN IMMEDIATELY OFF
The system powers on, then performs a system check. The DS is finding some sort of error More than likely the top screen was damaged. I've been told that the screen that flickers is usually the good screen. The bad one doesn't flicker because it's damaged. You can replace the top screen yorself (if you're fairly handy), or you can pay a professional to do it. You can get new screens from Dealextreme.com for around 10US dollars, with free shipping. You can also find videos about how to change out the top screen on youtube. Hope this helps

remove the battery for a few mins and put it back in and try again? Its a long shot but theres very little you can do with this, the insides of the DS lite are REALLY small and the only replaceable parts are the screen, buttons, etc. and you cant really fix damage to the board or chips inside which presumably is whats happened here if you get zero response. Sorry.. :(
When dropped, it could be a defective microcontroller. Not the first time I see that. Also it could be a resistor next to the power switch. That can be broken if it felt down. Best solution is to let is examine by a DS Lite repair shop or send it to Nintendo. If you send it to Nintendo, don't mention that it was dropped.
I'm not to familiar with the DS's but i beleive that is how they are supposed to boot if a cartridge is already in the unit. If not then there may be an option when booting without a cartridge where you can change the settings so that it will boot to the main DS screen before booting the game. I would check this first then seek further help from a more adequate expert on here.
If you see lines on either screen of your Nintendo DS Lite during game
play, then it is likely one or more of the components that create
the image on the screen are damaged. This can occur if there has
been an impact -- such as being dropped or hit -- to the Nintendo
DS Lite's screens. Phone 1-800-255-3700 to discuss available repair options and they will be grateful to assist you at any time of need.Important Note: If you are seeing lines on the
screen that slowly fade away after turning off the system, this
