How to fix a wet ds game

The best way to fix a game (or anything really) that you have spilled water on is to put it in a big bowl of rice where the object needing to be dried will be submerged. Unfortunately that should take place almost immediately and not after a long period of time.

There's no real fix for this-- your game is probably busted forever. Sorry man.

Ds lite wont turn on is there a fuse inside

Yes there are 2 fuses inside of the unit. See here.
Also sometimes the chip below the power switch breaks off of the board and will not allow the unit to power on. Usually if you shake the unit you can hear it rattle around. If it still will not power there is probably a fault in the upper lcd/flex assembly or the motherboard.

My DS lite is broken, what should I do?

Usually if you can hear something rattle after being dropped, then the small square capacitor located on the motherboard right beside the power switch has probably come off. It is marked on the board L2. Simply resolder this capacitor and it should work fine. If the capacitor is broken a new on can be purchased on ebay for less than $10.00. Simply look for key words "DS Lite L2" they also have pictures on the auctions further showing you where it is located

My nintendo ds wont turn on and i hear a rattling noise when shaken what can i do to fix it?

Get it replaced, the shaking noise can be a component from the main board that has broken off and it may have shorted out the board which is why it won't turn on. Get it replaced.

DS lite was dropped and now it won't work.

They usually don't work properly after they've been dropped. Nintendo carries a 1 year warranty, they will replace it for free (but not if you've used cheat codes (Action Reply), etc). I wouldn't mention that you've dropped it when calling them.
