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?

Shut off the water valve(s) to the washer and remove the hoses right at the back of the washer (have a bucket handy to drain them). Clean out the strainer screens inside the hose fittings on the washer. While you have the hoses in the bucket, turn the water valve on and off to flush the hoses - if you've had a pressure drop across the strainers for some time, there may be a bit of sediment build up there waiting to clog them again.
If the hoses aren't marked, keep track of which one goes to the hot water inlet, otherwise you'll have to check the temperature of the water running through before reconnection. Another hint - you can use the water in the bucket to mop a floor if needed - why waste it?
I was having the same problem. No steam out the bottom. I took the whole thing apart and cleaned it...inside and the mop heads. I now get water to the heads but steam is still coming out the sides of the unit and leaking. I took it apart again and this time had my husband look at it. He found a tube with a spring in it...the spring had punctured the side of the tube and was leaking inside the machine! I am really upset by this as the machine never really worked right from the beginning but I really did not know it was not supposed to work this way. Now the machine is over a year old. I will be calling tomorrow and complaining but am not very optimistic that they will do anything and from what I have been reading will NEVER buy another one!
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.
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.
open the mobile phone and pls ur hands should be dry now open then the board and use a cooton swab dipped in very little (pure )gasoline and start to rub on the circuit board
and let it dry ,, u have to be certain that all areas are covered and now assembnle it it will work
