Well if its under warrenty I would suggest sending it into nintendo if not and you are getting black screens either the connector inside the ds itself has become loose or both the screens are no good anymore.

its pretty tight working inside a ds lite and over time the wires get pinched more and more if the base of the shell is squeezed too much cause breaks in the only a few wires placed in the base of the shell.(under the bottom screen)

I would suggest anyone with this issue to contact nintendo or find a person who can fix them to run a few more test since I dont have the unit I am unable to be 100% sure of the issue at hand.

Most times its just an improper connection, ie. the top screen being white or has random colors. If both screens are black its probably your processor

    My daughters DS suddenly turned black on both screens. You can see light behind the screens if you look to the side of it but it looks as though it is off. The green charge light comes on when charging and the orange light comes on too. If this is a loose wire how much should I expect to pay to have it repaired?

SOURCE: black/blank screen w/green power light

I can fix it, When the system is shut down in the middle of an update the firmware or operating software is being replaced. If it is interupted it's kind of like your computer if it didn't have MS windows. What has to be done is that the firmware has to be replaced on it. You can do this by "hacking it which installs new firmware.

Green light, black screens, no sound, needs new battery???


The alarm is just a coincidence i suspect, green light comes on and stays on probably not the battery at fault. It would be red.
If the green light goes out and screens just flash one of your screens are at fault or a loose ribbon connection.
