    i have just changed the top screen on my sons ds lite, as it got cracked. I changed it no probs, however now when i switch it on, it powers up, but turns straight back off again.

    Could i have done something wrong.

    Any help would great. Thanks.

    My friend had this problem, and he could only play it when the charger was plugged in. It somehow fixed itself, so I can't really help. Maybe something got disconnected inside. I never opened my DS, so I have no clue what's inside.

    If the light comes on and then shuts right off, it's usually because the screen ribbon cable is not plugged in far enough -- You may have 1 end slightly off inside the connector. It is a pain, but it does have to be pushed in fairly far. Try checking that first.

    Yup I did the same thing you did, and the cable was not inserted all the way. Just open it back up and what I did was put it in all the way down and the lock, locked it self and it work just like before.

    Good luck

    Or it could also be a blown fuse. Are you still in warranty?

    He lost his warranty when he opened it. More than likely it is just the cable.
