I gave my DS lite to my now 5 and a half year old son about 18 months ago. Admittedly there were some cracks in the case hinges when I gave it to him. The current repair list since stands at:

2x complete shells - both replaced due to the right hand hinge breaking off completely.
1x touch screen - replaced as the original would no longer calibrate.
1x touch screen ribbon cable connector - the original broke when replacing the touch screen so I installed a modified version which is a lot stronger and easier to use.

I've opened up both my DS and DS Lite and neither to much success.

On my DS Phat:

I opened it up to replace the shell except when i put it all back together again the screens just blink and go off. Any ideas?

And my DS Lite

I opened it up to replace the touch screen (forgot screen protectors in the first weeks) and when i put it back together the top screen was dull and had small blinking lines? Would replace it but i really don't want to try my hand at soldiering.

I'm getting a DSi this weekend hopefully, so I might try to repair them at some point.

So:
0x repairs
1x broken DS Phat
1x half broken DS Lite

I think I might be out of the running

sounds like you accidently grounded the pc board with the metal frame of one of the displays when re-assembling the system and blew either the F1 and/or F2 fuse(s).

this sounds like the ribbon cable for the upper display got crushed and/or slightly torn.
