My daughter dropped her beloved DS onto concrete from about 3 feet, no physical damage, but wont turn on. The power light comes on but no screen or sound. I have pulled it apart but can not see anything wrong, put back together, same problem. Could it have dropped its firm ware load and if so can I reload it. I would appreciate an help or comments whatsoever. Thanx

Does the yellow light come on when charging? Could be that the fuse for the charging circuit has gone, or on of the screens has been damaged. If it's only 4 months old and not been dropped etc, send it back to Nintendo I'd have thought.
the charge light flashing means the battery is damaged or very dead .. some charger will not initiate charging if the voltage gets too low ..thats a safety feature ... if those are the original batteries then they are past due for replacement anyhow ..
remove the battery for a few mins and put it back in and try again? Its a long shot but theres very little you can do with this, the insides of the DS lite are REALLY small and the only replaceable parts are the screen, buttons, etc. and you cant really fix damage to the board or chips inside which presumably is whats happened here if you get zero response. Sorry.. :(
If the lens does not extend/retract when the camera is powered on, then lens assembly is damaged.
Unfortunately, such Canon SX100 (and the SX110 too) has a very fragile lens assembly, and it's damaged very easily. Most of the times the internal gears, the plastic post guides and the motor are damaged at the same time, so the only solution is to replace the whole lens assembly.
The lens replacement requires a qualified camera repair technician, unless you want to try in repair it yourself, which requires tools (scredrivers, soldering iron, desoldering tool, magnifier glass with light, etc).
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.
Not sure if this will help you, but my son dropped his on to a concrete pavement and it wen black, the charge lite would only come up for one second then go out when I plugged it in to charge. Just for fun, I had a spare battery and changed it. In this instance, the system started working again.
Not sure how this can happen, but dropping it on the floor seems to have killed the battery that was in it. A simple replacement battery did the trick for me.
Components may have come loose on the board, or damaged solder joints. Water damage can sometimes only appear after water has had time to seep, unless knock helped throw some residual water around inside, onto things it shouldn't touch.
