A lot of people have had the dreadful blinking of the screens. Whether it's only 1 screen blinking (upper or lower) , or both screens blinking..
I have a tip to help you diagnose the problem so you don't have to waste time trying to find out what's wrong with it, or waste money.
1.) IF YOUR UPPER LCD BLINKS
There is something wrong with your lower LCD and/or the connector on the board where the lower lcd connects to.
Open up your Nintendo DS lite system and clean the board with rubbing alcohol. Be sure to dry the board from excess liquid before re-assembling it. Use a FIRM brush. An regular toothbrush would not work as the bristles are not firm enough.
2.) IF YOUR LOWER LCD BLINKS
There is something wrong with your upper LCD and/or the connector on the board where the upper lcd connects to.

3.) IF BOTH SCREENS BLINK
99.9% of the time, if both screens blink, your light is red. Which indicates your battery is low. Change the battery. If your system isn't charing your batteries correctly and/or you're losing battery power unusually quick, replace the charger.
If that does not work, send your system in for repair, as the charging port needs to be cleaned.
Do you have a third party AC adapter for it? If you aren't using the original one, check its voltage. Mine was a 9V instead of a 10V and while it allowed the machine to run, I got visual distortion effects similar to what you describe. If it isn't a 10V adapter, go to Amazon and get a real one instead of a cheap third party one. I got this one (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00009ZKWC) and it works great!
I see what the problem that your haveing is, their is a possible problem with the back of the DS where the bottom and top hinges together (that long clip) which joines the two screens. Inside that hinge is a cable that connects both screens togehter, their could be a possible problem with in that, to get that repaired you must take it to a qualified technician. Another possibility could be that their is something wrong with the batteries/chargeing unit since it isnt letting out enough electrical out put as its supposed to to power both screens. But what ever the case i suggest you take it to an electician, do not open it your self because this may cause further problems.
Hope this solves ur problem, if things are still messing up, just contact me again.
The connection to the lower screen is probably a bit broken. If you feel up to it you could take your DS apart using a tri winged screwdriver (can be bought from www.whitedog.co.uk/catalog/nintendo-wing...) and check the connections or you could just send it in for repair.
i bought a wii sometime near launch and ive had no problems. make sure all the cords are plugged in all the way.also if you have another game system try it and see if it does the same thing.if not your wii might be messed up.
