    Here? Right here? What about, say... over there?
    Today I wanted to play sonic. So I got the jenisisds genisis emulator and put it on my acekard2i. I started the game Got to the main menu paused it and it froze... I turned my ds off then on again and it was just a black screen. Is there any hope for repair?

    - Take off your acekard from your DS and turn it on.

    - Make sure your battery is charged

    - Try removing your battery and put it back again

    Try holding the power switch up for 5 seconds or more and then try turning it on again

    Sounds like a brick to me. I remember when my DS Lite's LEDs turned on one day but not the screen.

    It's most likely a brick or a issue with the battery. Have you been using it lately, other than today?
    EDIT: Just posted that right after you posted that it worked. :P
