It could be that your son dropped the DS. The screens are probbably not dead, but a connection may have come loose. The screen connection cables, especially the LCD power ribbon, are sensitive. You can try disassembling the DS by following any of numerous disassembly toutorials (search Google!) and make sure everything looks normal, that is, all the ribbions are tight.

My son's DS Lite stopped working last night. The unit was working fine and the battery light turned red so he put it on to charge. After about an hour the light was green so he tried to start the console...

It sounds like the battery is dead. You can order a replacement battery direct from Nintendo at http://store.nintendo.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?productId=108205

Ds light green,dim green, amber then off when power is turned on

Sounds like you need to send it in for repair. I had sent my console to VideoGame911.com and they repaired mine at a great cost and got it back at the end of the week. Give them a try, they are cheaper than a manufacturer. Good luck!

My son's DS Lite won't come on. The green light

Last time I had this I had to change the motherboard, tried for hours to find the fault. motherboards are about £50 if you have to resort to it. Make sure you are buying an original nintendo and not a copy

My DS lite just stopped working, when I plug it into the AC Adapter the power light goes on for only a second. Nothing happens when I turn the power on.

could be a faulty battery, or the battery terminal could be at fault check that the terminals to the battery are in tacked and springy. could also be a fuse blown on the board.

Nintendo DS lite power light comes on but both screens stay dark?

When you boot the Nintendo DS you can change the illumination settings in the main menu.
One the main menu, you will find a sunny symbol in the lower left corner of the screen. Click on that and you should be able to change the level of illumination. If you are also wondering if you can change the brightness during game play, you can't. Games such as Mario 64 DS come with support for brightness change but otherwise you have to do it before game play.

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.
