    Whenever I power on my DS Phat Model No. NTR-001, the following will occur:

    1. Power indicator lights up normally.
    2. Top Screen: Nintendo DS logo, with normal animation. White background.
    Bottom Screen: Nothing except white background.
    3. Nothing except white on both screens, stays white until power off.

    Any fixes?

    What time scales do you mean by "some time"?

    1-2 minutes or so it should be ok, just enough so the ds clears the settings..

    So on top screen the Nintendo DS logo disappears automatically and then both screens are white?
    Sounds like an autoboot. Are you sure nothing is inserted in the card slot-1?

    Yes. And when I put in Pokemon HeartGold, the same thing happens, except the top screen will have Nintendo with the DS animation. Nothing changes when I put in Metroid Fusion (a GBA game).

    Not sure what could cause this error. Try cleaning the game card slot contacts.
