on the bottom of the DS there should be a little dial next to the volume dial this is the brightness dial , turn the ds on and then turn the dial and keep turning and the screen should appear if this doesn't help then its probably a fault with the screens and will need repairing

Ds lite flashes on but fuses are ok

One or both your screens have blown.

Try removing the motherboard from the screens and attach the battery the green light should turn on and stay on.

Now attach the lower screen and turn on. If the screen is ok the screen and green light will flash and then turn off. (if the screen doesn't flash the bottom screen is you're problem and will have to be replaced)

If this happens the problem is then you're top screen which you will have to replace.

DS lite green light comes on, top screen flash,then switches off

Check L2 near the power switch on your DS mobo. That part usually get loosen or taken out when you drop your DS. And usually you can recover it when dismantling your DS.

My nintendo lite wont turn on-the green lite is on but thats all-

Which LCD is blinking?

If your top screen is blinking before cutting off, your DS lite has a problem with the bottom screen.

If the bottom screen blinks before cutting off, your DS lite has a problem with the top screen.

Can you confirm?

Hi. this issue is normaly caused by bad screen (normaly top screen) or bad assembly in one of two screens, re insert carefully the flex cable again, if your screens are fine this must fix the issue
