My friend's son dropped her DS in a bucket of mop water, so we took it apart, cleaned it and everything else. now, we can't get the power to turn on. i've tried everything to fix it (i know a bit about fixing things like this, but i can't figure it out). is there something else i can try, or is the thing just shot?

The LCD panel has probably become dis-joined from the socket beneath it. To fix this you would need to get the DS screen apart and re-seat it. There are snap locks on the case and torc screws. It's very difficult to fix without breaking it.
try to dry the whole ds out, maybe with a hair dryer so all the water clears from the ds. If this does still not work, there will be a problem with the battery and i recommend you to take it to a shop to get fixed. If you still dont have any luck im very sorry but youll have to buy another nintendo ds.
take it apart and clean every bit of water out of it with kitchen roll, any standing water left inside will cause rust. Take the battery out while it dries too (leave it for 3 days in a dry place). Do not try to heat the battery, they explode if heated. Put the rest of the console in a dry warm place. It cant hurt to put it on a radiator for a couple of hours to speed this up.
It may start to work again when it's totally dry (3 days) but its a long shot.
If you want get some tools and take the ds apart.make sure all the pieces are straight and are put together right.if there not straight,make them straight.if there not put together,put them back together.Hope it works.
