This is the sort of problem commonly associated with devices that have flip or slide up screens.
There is a very thin flat cable which goes from the motherboard to the screen. This cable is called the flex cable. It is responsible for carrying signals from the motherboard to the screen.
When the lights come on and the screen does not display, there could be very limited options that you have to check properly before we can conclude that you might need to see a repairer.
Some of the things you might want to check are
1. Make sure that the screen brightness is not reduced.
2. Make sure that the battery is well charged or even plugged in to charge.
If the above have been checked and it still does the same thing, it is most likely to be flex problem and might require a replacement. In this case, you have to see a technician and have him repair it for you.
It shouldn't be very expensive depending on your location.
Hope this was helpful?

Top and bottom screens are white


Sorry for the delay. If the dsi won't turn off when you first get the white screens, hold the power button for 8 seconds. The unit should go off. Take the game cartridge out of the unit and inside that cartridge slot, is a reset button. Using a toothpick or something, press it. Turn the unit back on and it should be fine. Hope this helps :D

When I tried to turn off my DSi, the screen went white and it won't turn off. What do I do?


you should screw your battery cover at the back of your dsi. Then you should carefully pop out the battery. Wait about 10 secons then put it back on. It should work and if it keeps happening, you could send it to the nintendo or make a new question.
