You have to send the DS into Nintendo. Sorry, that's the only way to fix it. They can do the full fixing for $75 and replace the shell covering and screens, a total clean-up and they'll fix any other minor problems. Here is the link to order a fix-up for screens that came in cotact with water:
Click on where you're from, click on "System and Game Problems," then click on "Liquid spilled on system." You can either remove the battery and let it dry out, get a new battery, or send the DS into Nintendo if more then the battery got wet.
Hope this helps.

Hi there My DS Lite has started to turn itself off straight after being turned on and its fully charged. It has had a new battery and I have got a brand new charger and the DS lite when turned on, turns...

Hello there,
Unfortunately, something may be shorting out at the hinges causing the DS to shut down automatically. It is probably a ribbon cable damage. Try contacting Nintendo to try to get it fixed.
I hope this helps! Thumbs up are always welcome.

Nintendo DS bottom screen flashes then dies

If both of your screens are flashing, you must be experiencing a bad battery or your system has come into contact with some liquid.

A battery replacement or repair is needed to fix this problem.

DS dies after being charged out of the box

Try charging it at a different house, or taking it up to the store and ask them about it, cuz i mean its probably something up with the house if you've been through 4 and its the same problem. But the people at the store should be able to help you out with the problem or tell you what you should do.

My ds wont turn on all i do is plug in the charger then flick the switch really fast then the light turns on for half a second then stops wat do i do I came home one day from a trip, I decided to use my DS...

Do any screens flash?

I would say its a fuse / grounding out / or battery is destroyed.

If you can, try a different battery.. Has your battery and/or DS had any previous water damage?

Ds lite doesn't switch on, yellow light flashes once

As far as I know there is no fuse in the DS. Try booting them without any games in them. Also, try checking the batteries for water damage. There should be a small white label about 1/8th inch square on it. If the label has pink dots then there was no water damage however if there arent any dots its very possible that it could be water damage
