Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console
My daughter left her DS lite by the pool where it got soaked right through, now it won't power up or re-charge. Is there anywhere in Ireland or the UK where I can send this for a repair appraisal & quote? I have left the console in a warm environment to try & dry it out but to no avail, I also tried to open the unit but got as far as getting all the screws out but couldn't figure out the hinge so I didn't go any further.
When it comes to the question of what temperature to bake your DS at.... erm... don't.
Hot, dry air is good. Sitting it on top of a radiator may help. Putting it in what we call a hot press (or airing cupboard) in Ireland (the UK) for about 2 days may also help.
If you do bake it (I am not saying it WONT work, just that it may be dangerous overkill) - put the oven on the lowest temperature it does, nothing higher... and yes, remove the battery... (not needed for hot press or rad treatment).

If you can go to shop tell them its broken they might replace it cos my friend had the same problem and they have to by a new one

I would normally tell Sonic_881 that he is an ignorant idiot, but he isn't. That is exactly what you should do. But maybe not 130?. I'd say 120? instead.

Take out the battery and place the ds into the oven. Yes i said put it into the oven. set it to about 130 degrees. (like a hot car temprature) there made to withstand that. let it in there for 2 hours or so and then try to start it up. MAKE SURE THE BATTERY IS REMOVED BEFORE PLACEING IN THE OVEN OR ELSE THE BATTERY WILL EXPLODE!!! This isnt the 1970s the circuts are made with anti-corrosive metals. Hope this helps.

If your DS is still under warantee you could send it into Nintendo and have them repair it and ship it free. If not you have to pay for shipping and like 60 american dollars. Much better than buying a new one. http://www.nintendo-europe.com/ I'd give you more detailed instructions on how to set up the repair but I live in the USA and the link to the Nintendo Europe site is the best I can do.

You need certain tools to open it up. Plus, the motherboard, circuit board is getting corroded. The best thing would be for you to buy a new one. It would be too much for you to repair.
