Regular tap water contains minerals that are left behind as the water dries out. So, even if you did get all the water out, the minerals can still cause damage. In addition, the DS has a 'soft power switch' and that means that as long as the battery is in the device (as it probably was when sprayed) there is electricity present that can destroy the unit while water is there. Most probably, the water already did some damage when the unit got wet and the minerals and/or previous damage may have finished the job later when the unit was turned on. Some water may have even been left in the system since it can hide in areas that the dry rice will not be able to "draw" out. The best way to dry out a device is quickly remove the battery, take the entire system apart and clean the individual components and run some distilled water over the components to remove the mineral content of tap water before it dries on the boards/contacts. The DS lite system is relatively inexpensive these days, I think your best solution might be buying a good used one off Ebay (units can be had for around $50 today). May want to take apart any cartridge you had in it the old one and check for water in there, just in case, before using it in the new(er) one, too. Sorry for the bad news.
Take it apart carefully over a towel and place all the pieces seperately, try to write down what sequence you took it apart in and use sticky notes if possible. After about an hour of them sitting, it should be fine.
you are gonna need a small phillips screwdriver, and carefully take it apart. keep track of the parts. you will need tips some peroxide a dry cloth. you got to thoroughly clean every copper contact .take your time it will work.
if you can't send the xbox back to Microsoft this worked for me.
The 360 would spin the game up and say reading but than stop and do nothing.
I took the case apart, took out the cd drive, took that apart so i could get to the laser.
put a little big of very clean water on a q-tip, wipe the laser lens down and use the dry side to dry it off. put it somewhat back together and test, this worked fine for me, it read a disk no problem.
It may just be that your dvd drive's laser is dirty (idk how) but thats what was wrong with mine. It would say that there way no disk or that my 260 games were dvds, then I took it apart and cleaned the laser. That fixed my problem so it might work for your system just google "how to take apart 360" and you should find some guides of taking it apart. Anyway hope this helps!
Allo kristie, i know how do you feild, ok let start, if you know somebody can open it and put a part, and let dry for few days and after, put it back in one part, sometime it's working . let me know Yvon chow !!!
Open the battery compartment, and remove the battery. Look at the bottom inside corner for a little square sticker with has marks on it. is it dark or light, If it is dark, your PSP has come in contact with moisture. I suspect that your PSP has gotten wet or damp. If the sticker is dark, you need to keep your battery out for about 2 days, and keep the UMD door open and the whole PSP kept in a dry environment. Try it after 2 days of drying to see if it is recovered. Good luck Gohan....
