My DS's power light is not showing, even when the system is on. Whenever I turn it on, I don't get a red or green light on the power indicator, so I have no clue if my DS is dead or charged. I don't have my charger with me, so I don't know if it will show whenever I charge it.

Hi, The red light shows there is power connected to the set. The fact that it won't power up is due to a problem with the power supply circuit in the set. or a problem with the switch circuit or the mains power transformer.

What color is the power light when the system shuts off?
Red: If the power light is red, or flashing red, when the system turns off, then the system's battery needs to be charged.
Blue: If the power light is blue when the system turns off, then there appears to be a problem with the system and it will need to be repaired.
I understand you have replaced the battery... make sure its a genuine nintendo battery and charge. Also the port could be damaged or the ac adapter... take a good look at both for damages.
The port should not wiggle on the DS and should be solid.

Try this if you haven't yet.Take the battery out,read the voltage with a meter,If low your charger is not working.Also if no meter try reinstall batery.Good Luck. DS's are unpredictable,you could not touch it for another month and it will work.
Your DS is either fully charged or the battery got damaged/wet. When you play the DS, is the light red or flash red? If it does, then the problem is with your battery. http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/repair/dslite_repair_home.jsp
Click on your country, then "System and Game Problems," then "Power and Battery Charging Problems."
Hope this helped.
You need to send it to a repair shop or nintendo as the fall has knocked out a fuse or damaged the power button or battery area, it will be one of the above if there is no power at all going to the little green and red led lights on the top right corner.
You never want to play the DS while it's charging, if constsntly persisted it can cause a form of battery leak.
IMPORTANT: Don't charge the DS until it dies on you completely!
When charging the DS the system will display a red light to show it's at its lowest energy, the time it takes to fully charge a DS can take up to 2-3 hours. In the second hour of charging the light will appear green but you don't want to disturb it until the light goes off. ( showing it's energy is full )
