SOURCE: Display screen on DS Lite
I had this same problem on my Lite earlier this year. It was still under warranty, so I sent it in to Nintendo repair, who replaced the hinge assembly. Based on the symptom and the repair, I suspect it's caused by a loose/damaged ribbon cable between the upper screen and the rest of the Lite.
I'd be leery of trying to fix it yourself (I've worked on similar problems in laptops), but if your Lite is out of warranty, you might try one of the third-party repair services. Depending on whether the ribbon cable is damaged or just loose, they may not even need any replacement parts.

It's all to do with the top screen... What happens is that when you turn the DS lite on it performs a quick check on the screens to make sure they are connected properly, if one or both are not connected properly then the unit will shut down.
The flashing of the screen shows you that that particular screen is fine whereas the one that does nothing is not connected properly, either through a loose connection or faulty screen/ ribbon.
Your best bet is to buy a new top screen (I usually get mine from ebay for around £10-£12) and fit it. That should sort out your issue.
