A couple of months ago I dropped my Nintendo d.s in water. Recently when i tried to charge it the light turns on but when i try to turn on the system it won't work. How can I fix it?


Open the battery panel, remove the stylus, as well as any other removable covers you can. Blow dry the device for about 30 minutes focusing on any external holes which may vent hot air internally. Finally fill a bowl with dry white rice and submerge the DS in the bowl overnight. If you haven't burned it out by trying to use it or corroded it in the time since it fell. This will draw all the water out.

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.

I dropped my Blackberry in a puddle of water and its not working. What can I do?


Remove the battery, turn the unit on it's back and allow any water to work its way out. Let the unit sit for a day or so. If you can't wait that long, take a blow dryer to it and blow out any water. When the unit appears to be completly dry, insert the battery and see if it boots up. If it doesn't, it may not be completely dry yet.

The 7290 is a pretty versatile unit. I dropped mine in a lake twice on the same camping trip. Both times I immediately removed the battery, laid it out on a rock and let the sun dry it. It booted up fine both times.

Cheers!

My samsung impression dropped in water and touch screen broke


I also dropped my Samsung Impression in the toilet, I immediately took the phone took the protective case off, took the battery cover off, and took the battery and my SIM card out and towel dried it as best as I could. Then I sat it on the floor next to my fan and let it dry until I got to my grandparents a little while later and I put it in a bowl of rice, completely covered the phone and battery with rice and left it sit overnight in the rice and all of the next day, so far i've had it on about 20 minutes and have had no problems with it so far, another solution is to sit it in the sun, to further dry it out. Water damage will void warranties on your phone and battery and your provider will know instantly if the damage was water related when they take your battery cover off, there is a small square sticker that when dry and hasn't touched water should be white, but as soon as it comes into contact with water it turns red, there is also one of these stickers on the battery. My stickers were red and after sitting in the rice they look like they got lighter in color considerably, I don't know if that is really possible but appearance wise it looks that way. I hope this helps anyone who has had this problem. Good Luck!

Ds lite battery wont charge i have charged it overnight but nothing the green light goes on but that is it


Hi,

If the green light is turning on and the screens are staying blank it is a problem with he L2 fuse on the motherboard (located just below the power button).

This can be replaced if you are handy with a soldering iron. If not drop it to a local repair shop it can be fixed for about €20.

DS lite green light comes on, top screen flash,then switches off


Check L2 near the power switch on your DS mobo. That part usually get loosen or taken out when you drop your DS. And usually you can recover it when dismantling your DS.

I dropped my LG enV into a puddle of water.


Sounds like you will need a new battery. My env2 would only work if plugged into the wall charger after I dropped it in the toilet. I got a new battery and it works fine now!

Good morning; My grandson has a Nintendo DS and he dropped it in a puddle of water. It does not work; it wont turn on. Can you help. We tried charging it and drying it with a hair dryer. My email...


I'm having the same problem, too. My sister dropped it in the bathtub, and then turned on the power without letting it dry. The DS still turns on and hold charges, but the screens are messed up with flickers and blurs.
As I know, if you drop it in the water, do not turn on the power or it will be fried. Just let it dry, and then power up again to see if it still works. If you already turned on the power while there was still water in it, it's toasted.
