I was playing my DS the Mic was working fine... I went on my computer for about an hour came back up and turned on my DS Lite and started to play Guitar Hero Decades, When I went to blow into the microphone to get the star power activated, It did not work... So I popped in my Indiana Jones Lego in... I was`nt surprised now cause when you have to blow out the torches with the mic it does`nt work... So I really dont know how it broke, Or why... So if sombody could resond to this that would help, Me being a Hardcore Gamer I would want to get back to my games.
Try resetting the Ds lite by taking the battery out for a few minutes then try the mic again.
If this fails the mic has blown and needs to be replaced. This involves taking the unit apart and installing the new mic and cable from it's location in the top screen to the port in the motherboard in the bottom screen.
If you are not handy at repairs i would suggest bringing it to a local repair shop as it is a relatively cheap repair to fix (€20 approx).

Try another charger, yours may be faulty. Alternatively,the battery may need replacing as it is no longer holding charge, these can be obtained very inexpensively from Ebay and you will just need a small cross head screwdriver to remove the cover on the back of the DS lite, then tap the unit in your hand to dislodge and remove the battery.
Hi - either the cable is not ALL the way in the connector ( double check) or the cabels damaged after install ( common) you need to repalce the entire screen on a ds lite as the cable is not detachable.
as for the mic - you will need some PCB rework on the motherboard to rectify that I'm afraid, contact us at www.dsdoctor.co.uk if you need any more help :-)
Try getting the latest version of the firmware for ur ds. After u download the firmware, put ur card into card reader. Use computer to delete everything except ur games. Then put the firmware that you downloaded into the card. See if it works.

This option is only suitable for out of warranty devices as opening it violates the warranty.
Open the device and look for loosen or unplugged cables in the main bottom board. Usually this dont happen though opening and closing the unit whe it was not assembled correctly may cause the wires and conductors to loosen or even worst to get cut by the moving parts. So as you say nothing else was done with the unit between plays that is the only explanation I can guess from it.
The headset plug is in the bottom main board so no cables are required to get the audio there, though as the speakers are in the top, these require some flexible cables and conductors running throught the hinges to the top part.
My Nintendo ds lite also would not respond to voices. I have brain age 2 and Zelda. In the Zelda options there is a mic test. This will show a graph bar that measures your voice. Well the mic was not working at all for either game. I simply took out the battery and held the power slide for a couple seconds. Amazingly the mic works now for both games. I do not know if moving the power slide is significant, but on computers to de-static them you remove all power sources(battery and ac adapter) and hold the power button for 10 seconds.
I fixed the MIC on my DS LITE very easily, after first replacing the MIC with a new one and finding that it still did not work (not an easy thing to replace either)! The internal MIC signal is routed to a contact at the front edge of the DS, which allows the internal MIC to be disconnected when an external MIC is connected. If this contact (which is normally held closed by the springy nature of the contact) gets dirty, then it effectively goes open circuit, disconnecting the internal MIC signal. You can use a cotton bud and a little WD-40 (contact cleaner) to clean the contact (clean the two pins next to the 3.5mm jack connector) to restore the electrical contact. Takes 5 minutes and is a LOT easier and cheaper than replacing the MIC or paying someone to repair it!
