It sounds like it got dropped in water but if you didn't; You should try to take out the battery (unplug the DS first) usually I would suggest just waiting a few seconds and replacing the battery. However due to how the battery comes out, and depending on the height the battery fell from, you should make sure none of the brass pinns that contact the battery got smushed.

If the pins are smushed (if one or two of the pins don't protrude as far as the other) take a safety pin or a needle and try to gently bend them back out to a distance they will definatly make contact with the brass strips on the battery.

Ds lite green light is on but both screens are black and no sound


For GBA games the green light is meant to stay on. The orange light will stay on as long as its recharging. It will turn off when its fully recharged or when you unplug it

I droped my nintendo ds


Yikes! Looks like your luck on dropping your system has run out. You might get lucky one more time. Open the battery compartment, remove the battery, and then put it back in and close the compartment. You may have knocked it loose.

DS lite, power is on but nothing happens


Ditto... except my daughter is 10. Both screens remain black, are fully charged and green light stays on for more than 4 minutes.
