nhan le try this one first:

Check the battery pack and ensure its charged [LED light on upper right corner should be lit GREEN].

-If AC wall power adapter is being used, ensure both the connector [into DS lite] and wall plug [to outlet] are securely connected.

-Check the battery contacts and clean if necessary using a pencil eraser or lightly scrape contacts until entire surface is shiny.

-Check the placement and orientation of battery pack to ensure its connected securely and properly.

If that does not work, you may have to disassemble your DS lite and check on the cables, connectors and logic board to make sure all connections are seated properly. Good Luck

I just had the same problem, green light, blank screens. Well the way I fixed my DSL was simple. However it's your call as to if you wanna try this method. All I did was pound on both sides. I tapped each side on the butt of my palm and its worked for 6+hours now. Dont beat the crap out of it but try it. Cant break it anymore.

Ok, had this problem. Turn on DS, both screens white. Nothing else.

Tried tapping it as suggested, but then realised the battery was dead, so charged it and turned back on and no luck. Then noticed it still had a cartridge, took that out, reset and presto it works.

So yeah

I tried tapping it against the palm of my hand, and it worked! Hopefully, it can work good enough to where I'll do that every day! Thx, jay!

Tui, BTW, if the green light turns red, plug in the charger quickly. if it's red, it will go back to black, while its working.
