Remove the battery and dry the console and battery out for a few days in a warm dry place (airing cupboard). Once you're sure it's all dry fit the battery and give it a try, if it works you've done it, if it dos nothing then it's dead and would probably cost quite a bit to repair.

I think wet makes the unit not fixable it may be cheaper to but a new one.

I got my DS touch screen all wet and now it doesn't respond to being touched. What do I do so that it responds to being touched now.

Electronics like a Nintendo DS get messed up if you get them all wet (e.g. drop it in a tub full of water). My guess is after you got your DS all wet, your touch screen stopped working.

My only solutions to this problem is:

My son spilled a drink and got his nintendo DS wet , it all works but the bottom touch screen. How do I fix it?


You will most likely need a new DS touchscreen.

I recommend that you clean the DS immediately. Even though its working now, the liquid could still damage components overtime if not cleaned immediately

Action Replay

Just try pushing the game card farther into the slot because sometimes the DS doesn''t pick it up because it's not all the way in. That's actually the only way to help it, but if not, maybe something is wrong with your DS or there's something stuck in the slot.

Nintendo DS not reading games

Some pins were bent in my son's DS. I used a mini LED light and an open paper clip as a pick to bend them back into line.
I then got an Emory board (nail file) and wet the tip in alcohol, the board is the right thickness to just reach the copper pins. I went in and out gently as I worked my way across the lot and kept wetting the file with alcohol. All the games worked like it was new. be sure to do this upside down so the alcohol drips out the slot along with the filings. good compressed air blow after you are done to get all the strays out of there.

The pinds are copper and they do oxidize and the games left in gets moisture trapped between the game and the pin causing some corrosion. Maybe diddimilar metals by alloy but wither way this fix works ! : )
