sounds like It is broken. unless you get the startup screen beefore it goes out white i'd say something was damaged in the screen or the wiring connecting the screen to the unit.
If you see any lines on it, It was most likely over extended open and the wires inside have become frayed or damaged. If you try fully opening the top screen and push inward you may have temporary relief of this issue. could try puling out also but either way this would just be to test if thats the issue. dont pull or puch to hard as you could damage the unit further.
if it is a pure white screen the screen may have cracked or had something spilled on it which would damage the screen beyond use.
Either way, the system is damaged and needs to be replaced or repaired. Price wise it is more advisable to just buy a new unit rather then purchase parts and repair it.
buy a new top ds lscreen, good and cheap place is www.dealextreme.com with free delivery. its tricky job though so better if someone who has knowledge does the job, otherwise there are reliable ppl online that qoute good prices 4 fitting new screens.
Dont worry its not about to die but................. that hairline crack could expand and to avoid this you could start by not hitting it hard or moving the pen past that line to much. You could ask any videogame seller (in stores obviously) were it can be fixed believe me they told me were this guy is that fixed my gamecube console and ds but scince i dont know were you live i dont think it would be usefull to tell you. I hope this really helps you and plkease post me a comment. By the way if you know someone near San diego that fixes ds stuff tell me because the guy i know doesnt know how to fix something. tnx
Replace upper screen and the Upper front bezel. Or replace the upper screen and the complete DS Lite Housing. You can find them on the well known auction sites. Please be aware that you must know what your are doing. If in doubt, send it to Nintendo or a local Nintendo repair service
Mommyturtle, i suggest that you send it in. This will ensure that you get your DS back without loss on your part. But, if you would like instructions on how to fix your unit (This will void any warranties on your unit), please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will step you through it.
