I had the same problem, but luckily we have two DSs. I found that a working DS does the orange light flicker if it has no battery so figured it was a battery problem. Turns out that the battery had leaked a little and the contacts on the battery *and* the unit had furred up so there was no connection to one of terminals. The confusing part was that, because *both* contacts were furred up switching the battery with a good DS changed nothing - and the good DS didn't work with the bad battery. I will change the leaking battery, but whilst I wait the old one seems fine.
A word of warning, whilst the battery cover is off be careful with the DS otherwise the little nut that the cover screws into can drop into the machine! I had to remove a few screws to get the blighter out!

Need more info. Is that when you are charging? Does the light turn green when you turn it on? Do you have a crack in your hinge?
1. Battery will not charge anymore. - Get new battery
2. Flat cable to upper screen is bad.
3. Flat cable to bottom screen is bad.
Have an experienced video game repair person do any fixes to the screens. The chance is to great for total trashing of your system by inexperience.

Simple... You can either send it back to Nintendo if in warranty, if not you can pay them £30 to fix it OR you can buy an external charger for £9 from gameathlon.com and charge your battery that way! I had the same problem, so i now charge my ds battery externaly and plug it in and play!

You will have to get a new light on your ds (charger light)
