I had the same problem with my son's DS Lite, after replacing a broken shell with a Ghost shell.

A lot of the solutions for this problem indicate a blown fuse. Before assuming it's the fuse, check the fuses with a multimeter. In my case, both F1 and F2 were fine.

I finally tracked it down to the cable for the upper display not being fully seated into the connector. It's tough to get in all the way, but the little tabs on either side of the ribbon cable should be up against the white part of the connector. If they're not, you haven't inserted it all the way, and your DS Lite will power on for a couple seconds, the bottom screen will flash, and then it will shut off.

Bummer. Sorry to hear this. Your console is broken and needs to be repaired. Contact Nintendo and arrange to have it repaired (or replaced if under warranty.)

If your xbox is still under warranty, call 1-800-4my-xbox to have it serviced. It is a problem realted to the video card inside the xbox. This error is covered by microsoft for three years from the inital purchase date of the xbox. If you are out of warranty you may want to attempt a repair yourself.
