My son left his gameboy outside overnite and unfortunately it sprinkled a little rain. After trying to dry it with a hair dryer. The only thing that appears is a little flash of light on the screen. Is it damaged? Anything else I can do?

I had the same problem. It was a solder connection in the charger socket. I tried to fix it but made it worse. I ended up having to switch the battery with a charged one from another GameBoy. That's how I was able to keep using it.
Unfortunately there are no gameboys that have memory "built in", so they device you have is either an imitation gameboy or a gameboy loaded with "hacked / illegal" software. Unfortunately these are very flaky and are known to have issues. You may want to talk to whoever you purchased it from, but it is definitely not a regular gameboy.

I've replaced shells on the phat ds and it was fairly easy. This doesn't look nearly as complicated. It should be quick and easy.
The only thing I would say is be sure that you are careful with the cables. Make sure you lock them in right. Also, sometimes with new cases if you are having problems getting the metal thing back into the hinges, it is helpful to get a small flathead screwdriver and carve off some of the plastic inside the hinge opening (be very careful). Sometimes there is excess plastic that makes the hole too small for the hinge to fit through and this ensures that you don't scratch up the outside of the case while trying to get the hinge back in.
it,s not worth repairing.
the cost of a new motherboard and fitting will cost more than the Gameboy advance. i bet the three year old lads not the flavour of the month, with the 7 year old :)
have a look on e-bays the best, not everyone wants these anymore. you might find One on Swapz.co.uk if your in England.
Hope this answers your question.
