Sell it for spare parts is the only thing you can do. Water makes the DS Lite scrap. All effort to repair it will be hopeless

I am having a problem with my NEC NW752 Washing Machine. It runs through the cycle but will not drain the water. There were no kinks in the hose and when we hooked another washing machine it worked fine....

chances are that your daiwood / nec unit has a bad drain pump or perhaps the unit is not level or the drain hose is to high for the pump to pump out the water lastly

if you remove the front of the unit where the pump is located as you will see in the link I sent you there is a trap that may need to be cleaned out it has a hand screw cap that you can open and clean try that first before replacing the pump i sent you in the link NEC WASHING MACHINE WATER DRAIN PUMP NW752 NW891 NW652 NW 891 NW 81R eBay

My ds lite wont load the games. It works

It seams that the Slot 1 is broken then, you should contact nintendo about it or you could try to fix it your self if you have some basic soldering skills and warrante period ended.

My sons nintendo ds wont turn on, when we charge it, turn power on , the green light comes on and bottom screen blinks for a split second then goes dead.. Is this fixable , if so what do i try??? thanks

yes it is fixable sounds like your fault is with the top screen are the hinges ok has it been dropped.

most green light and screen flashes point to a defective screen or connection on the mother board or sometimes fuses. id start with checking the motherboard connection if its ok check the fuses if all is ok buy a new top screen and replace it.

DS lite left in washer

Take the battery out right away and let it air dry in a window or under a light. dont use a fan or hair dryer. let it sit for about 2 maybe 3 weeks and put the battery back in it and it may work. you dont want the battery in it while there could be some kind of water in there still becuase it could cause a short on the mother board.

how long have you had the console for? if you havnt had it long (less than 12 months) you can get a free replacement or free repair where you got it from, one or two of the teeth where you insert your game might be damaged, see if you can get it sent back, if not local gaming repair shop, works out cheaper to get it fixed than buy a new one, for repairs usually £30-£35 new DS £99 or more, i hope you can get it sorted

If there is a game glitch there is nothing you can do.
When this happens with consoles such as the DS they normally fix the glitch and then all new games made will have that fix. It may be worth speaking to the vendor to see if they know about it.
