My ds has the same problem, except it stays white! but only because the cords on the left side of the ds (bust the part where the two light indicators are, power and charging, and slide the top screen to the right, then you should see the cords.) are not connected ore are lose from the central part of the ds. Ask nintendo or somebody who is a whire repairer to connect these wires.

Sounds like a ribbon cable to the top screen maybe damaged. Upon startup, the ds does a systems check, any kind of failure e.g. a ribbon cable or a faulty screen would cause the console to shut down again. Presuming everything else works charging etc this is most likely to be the problem.
sounds like It is broken. unless you get the startup screen beefore it goes out white i'd say something was damaged in the screen or the wiring connecting the screen to the unit.
If you see any lines on it, It was most likely over extended open and the wires inside have become frayed or damaged. If you try fully opening the top screen and push inward you may have temporary relief of this issue. could try puling out also but either way this would just be to test if thats the issue. dont pull or puch to hard as you could damage the unit further.
if it is a pure white screen the screen may have cracked or had something spilled on it which would damage the screen beyond use.
Either way, the system is damaged and needs to be replaced or repaired. Price wise it is more advisable to just buy a new unit rather then purchase parts and repair it.
You have a defective flatcable of the upper screen, or the calble is not correct seated in the connector on the systemboard. The upper screen connector is on the bottom side of the Left button-switch.
If the flatcable is defective (most likely because of the open-close actions every time the DS Lite is used) you have to replace the complete upper screen (the cable cannot be removed without replacing the whole screen).
First try to reseat the flatcable in the connector. If that is not working, replace the screen (manuals how to open the DS Lite etc etc can be found on the Internet)
Looks like you left a loose wire or flexible ribbon cable, open the unit again and be sure the cables are well locked into the connectors, be sure the flexibles are in good conditions and over all check the screens or other metallic parts not to cause a short circuit.
Some metallic parts have electric tape isolations to avoid them to touch the circuit board and fry the DS for example when you press a button amd make pressure over the parts.
