This is the second DS I have replaced the top screen on. Both times, everything seems to go well until I put the unit back together and turn it on. The lower screen flashes (and light) then it shuts off. I have checked the small ribbon cable a dozen times and had 5 other people try pushing it in and it does not appear to go in any further. Is there something else that I may be doing wrong to cause this.

The Flex ribbon wire is sensitive parts! you said a dozen times and 5 people that they are trying to fix your DS! ok before you did the action you got the same problem... change a new one flex ribbon wire or LCD.

This has happened to me to, so don't worry! 1. You could hook it up to your computer and resync it there. 2. 1st, hold Select and Start at the same time, then turn the DS on. keep holding it until after the DS' top screen says "This product is not licensed or endorsed by Nintendo". Keep holding Start and Select until it fades a different shade of white, then wait for a second, then turn off the DS. Now try the AR.
If you replaced the lower LCD PLEASE check to see if you put a pad on the bottom of the lower lcd... If the metal is touching the board then your LCD and causing the board to shutoff! and not power on.
That's the main reason your DS wont power on if you changed those things.
One of you're screens is broken or the F2 fuse has blown.
Check youtube for a video on "how to check my DS lite F2 fuses" there are several available that give step by step guidance on how to do this.
Having checked these (and replaced blown ones) and you're screens are still not working then it is a screen that has blown.
If the bottom screen flashes for a split second when you turn it on then it is you're TOP screen that has blown and needs to be replaced. If it doen't flash then it is you're bottom screen that is broken and needs to be replaced.
Theres a good chance that the cable might have been damaged in replacement of the top screen. check the tiny inserts at the end. But first, see if the cables' fully connected. As for the battery, it might already be at capacity, and is fully charged. that might explain your 3 second charge. Anyone please write if this helped you in any way.
It's very possible that you didn't remove the protective film that the top screens almost always come packaged with. If that's not the case it might just be a loose connection, but that's doubtful, or a lesser quality screen.
