Tip & How-To about Nintendo DS Console

What to do when you accidently spill water on your Ds Dsi or Dsi XL

Dry it out as soon as you can and DO NOT try and turn it on while its wet otherwise, it will be fried. If you did what i told you not to before you read this, first of all try getting a new battery. Order one and see if you can still play. If you cant, send your Ds,Dsi, or Dsi XL to Nintendo and they will fix your Ds. Hope this helped! :D

SO , AS FAR AS YOUR PHONE IS CONCERENED IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU TURNED IT ON TO SOON BEFORE IT WAS DRY AND FRIED IT.

DSC-T70 camera got wet and now won't power on. Battery seems to charge fine.


I'm guessing you tried to turn it on way too soon and fried the circuits. A camera with fresh water damage should be buried in a bowl of dry rice for a week before even attempting to turn it on. Salt water damage?....chances of a complete recovery are slim to none.

Breaker kicks off as soon as switch is turned on


the gfci is defective from moisture even after they dry they can be defective,access the cord inside the machine and try a different cord and see if this is your problem,otherwise the pump motor could be bad,the bypass valve on the pump could be bad,if you could run it you could check current draw with an amprobe,but not if it wont start

The LCD touch screen is not lit. Sometimes camera does not turn on. It got wet in a heavy thunderstorm.


It's probably fried by the water. Your only hope is to set it aside for a couple weeks, and let it thoroughly dry out, then try it again. But probably you already tried to turn this one on while it was still wet, and that fried the circuitry. If so, you're outta luck. Sorry! Next time something electronic gets wet, do that but don't EVER try to turn it on while it's still wet.Gotta give it LOTS of time to dry out inside in order to have any hope of a recovery.

Phone got wet


try taking out the battery and blow-drying where jack goes. Keep air on high fan and heat on cool. Also blow dry where battery goes.
