Just leave it to dry in a nice warm place. If you try to remove it you could end up damaging your ds or spread water all through it.

I got my DS touch screen all wet and now it doesn't respond to being touched. What do I do so that it responds to being touched now.

Electronics like a Nintendo DS get messed up if you get them all wet (e.g. drop it in a tub full of water). My guess is after you got your DS all wet, your touch screen stopped working.

My only solutions to this problem is:

I have a black ds lite and i accently dropped it in my pool and it turns on and it dosent show the picture and it used to show lines.

When any electronic is dropped, you must take the battery out right away. Also, you should put the device and the battery in a jar of rice because the rice absorbs any moisture quickly. Your DS might be water-logged. Meaning, the water has corroded the wires inside and made it difficult or impossible for electricity to flow. However, because it DOES turn on, the problem could be with the screen only. DS replacement screens are available on ebay, but require self-installation. Buying a screen will not necessarily fix your DS.

If your DS is still under warranty or if you have home owner's insurance, I would call Nintendo and tell them that your DS is defective and stopped working and that you would like to send it in and get it replaced. Home owner's insurance may or may not cover your DS, it depends on your coverage and deductable. Hope this helps.

I suggest you take it apart. You can get a special screwdriver for Nintedo ds, for about £2.50
Watch this video
You have probably damaged the battery (Replacement £15.00)
If screens are damaged (top screen £6 bottom £15)
First ensure its dried inside and out.
try to acertain which parts are damaged and need replacing if you are lucky it may just go back together and work.
Come back to me if you need further advice on parts and dis/assembly.
Good Luck!

Components may have come loose on the board, or damaged solder joints. Water damage can sometimes only appear after water has had time to seep, unless knock helped throw some residual water around inside, onto things it shouldn't touch.
