Left our dsl out in the rain and now it will not turn on only charge light goes on when charger is plugged in. Does anyone know if I can still send it back to Nintendo as it is still under warranty.

Try taking the battery cover off and removing the battery, placing all of the items, including any games that was in the console when you left it outside, in a facecoth or light teatowel, Put all the items inside a airing cupboard, or on top of a radiator, for a couple of weeks, to see if you can dry it out.

Do not put the unit dirtectly on top of a radiator. you must place it inside a teatowel or a facecloth. this worked for me but cannot say it will work for yours.

you probably shorted out the board when you turned it on. Best thing to do is put it on ebay.

VSI is the controller under the joy stick. Water will ruin the electronic circuits . The controller is expensive new. You can find rebuilt ones cheaper or can have yours rebuilt. Check your local mobility service shop or on line repair facilities.

Driver was left out in the rain, got wet and now won't work

If you tried it straight after, it may now be broken. The general treatment is to take out any battery, and place it in a warm dry place for a day or two to eliminate any moisture. The internals of any drill will not usually be damage if you do this.

The same is true to some extent of mobile phones, key remotes etc.

Power drill got wet, won't run

Pull the motor brushes out and clean them up also take points file to the brush holders if it has them to clean them up. Not sure which model tool you have so I just gave an educated guess.

My daughter left her dsi in the rain we turned it on an it was fine but now it wont turn on but it does charge up but not turning on can anyone help ?

Water most likely seeped in when you pressed the buttons to check if it still worked. The charger to battery circuit is very short so it most likely didn't get wet. You may have to send it to Nintendo for replacement so that you won't have to pay for a brand new system again.

A bottle of water exploded in my bag and my ds lite got wet too and now it wont turn on or charge

From what I read online to people that had a DS get wet was remove the battery.... Place the DS in a ziplock bag full of rice. I guess the rices will absorb the moisture left in the unit.. I don't know if this will work ... but it is worth a try.. Most people felt that you needed to leave it in the bag for at least 3-4 days or up to a week.... hope it helps

System Settings are not stored

Unfortunutly there is not another battery in the unit. Its probably the main chip has gotten shook a little loose so that it can not correctly store the information. Your best bet is to get in contact with Nintendo and see if they will do warrenty work on your unit. Here is a link to where you can get the warrenty process started.
