Re: power on button

Hi cam,
Sorry, but you have two options, neither is good.
1. Get a new one, or take it back to the store.
2. Open it up and check for problems.

Green light is on my sons Ds but I haven picture r sound he dropped it

It sounds like something broke on the inside when your son dropped the DS. If you have a warranty, see if it will cover the damage, otherwise you will need to purchase a new one.

Change the lanuage back to English

Is it a DS lite?
The game changes to the language your ds is set to. Remove all cartidges and start the ds. Press the setup icon on the bottom of the touch screen (in the middle and looks like a tiny ds).
Press the pink wrench icon.
Press the globe icon.
Choose English.
Press the 'A' button.
Press 'B' twice.
Press 'A' to shut down.
Now play in english.

Ds lite

Components may have come loose on the board, or damaged solder joints. Water damage can sometimes only appear after water has had time to seep, unless knock helped throw some residual water around inside, onto things it shouldn't touch.

Is this a terminal problem

It could be that your son dropped the DS. The screens are probbably not dead, but a connection may have come loose. The screen connection cables, especially the LCD power ribbon, are sensitive. You can try disassembling the DS by following any of numerous disassembly toutorials (search Google!) and make sure everything looks normal, that is, all the ribbions are tight.
