I can't fix it

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?

My son dropped his DS and now the screen doesnt appear at all on the top screen

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.

My son dropped the DS in the bath last week. I

Let it dry out for another day or two too make sure it's completely dry inside. Or you can you a hair dryers to blow out and dry the excess water inside.

In case none of this will work, it needs repair.

Can you fix a nintendo ds with water damage??

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.

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.

Droped in the mop bucket

If it's less than one year old, you can still have a warranty from Nintendo. I suggest you call them to know if they can fix it.
