Rice can do miracles when used to absorb water, for this reason it is commonly used for this purpose, have you ever seen some rice in a salt saker and wondered why it was there? salt goes bad when it gets wet, so it absorbs the moisture from the air. Just ensure its raw rice, and not cooked.
Give it a day or two in the rice and wish it luck, unless you happen to have the custom screw driver required to open it up and dry it. Don't turn it on in the mean time. By turning on a wet device you run the risk of short circuiting it if you haven't already done so.

Putin in charger orange light flashes then goes off an doesnt cha


Your DS is either fully charged or the battery got damaged/wet. When you play the DS, is the light red or flash red? If it does, then the problem is with your battery. http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/repair/dslite_repair_home.jsp
Click on your country, then "System and Game Problems," then "Power and Battery Charging Problems."
Hope this helped.

Nintendo DS will NOT charge


My guess is that the problem resides in the charger. You can buy a dual use charger for the DS and DS Lite at GameStop for relatively cheap.

Power problems with DS Lite


Really sounds like a dead battery. The DS will not work if the battery is bad even when it's plugged in. You get the quick flash of the power light and that's it.
