    aww, mine started with that problem, then it was enough just pressing one of those buttons, after some weeks, it just started randomly shut down.. ( right after that my hinge cracked -.-) so after that i retired my first DS lite.. :/
    (had opened it previously to fix my L-button which was non responsive.. and i kinda fixed it, but... that also removed my warranty..)

    It's a fairly well known hardware problem. Nintendo will fix it for free if it's under warranty, otherwise, hard luck. [​IMG]

    Nintendo will repair it for $20 if it's not under warranty, so even if you don't have a warranty it's still a lot cheaper than buying a new one.
