    evident damages on the hinges?
    if the power led turn on and off, maybe it's the ribbon cable for the upper screen

    I know it doesn't answer your question but you can get a used ds lite plus a replacement case (so it looks/feels brand new) for like sub 40 bucks all together. It's what I did a few months ago, beats trying to revive a dead man.

    Maybe it just died of old age.

    DSs are, in fact, pretty old.

    i thought this was common and ooold knowledge:

    DS Lites fuses can break and that ends up in no orange led lit when charging or/and no green led power (console does not turn on):

    Weld some tin (with a soldering iron) and bridge EACH fuse encircled in red.

    these:

    upon furthur investigation i found the previous owner had also worked on the console! they must've broken it. thankfully i have a spare ds lite with a broken touch screen, so ill just swap the screens.
