Question about Video Game Consoles & Games

1 Answer

My son accidently threw his nintendo ds into a bucket of water. we dried it out and suprisingly, it worked again. after a few normal recharges, it will now not recharge at all. is it just the battery? is it worth buying one and trying? or should we just chuck it away? or take it to a repair shop?

Ds will not power on


Check the following:

Is it newly recharged?
- ...If it is, test the battery. Measure the voltage + - with a voltmeter. Getting 0 --> buy a new battery.
Have you recently by accident dropped it?
- ... Turn it in for service if you have a valid guarantee. Probably hardware error.
Have you exposed it to water by mistake?
-... Do not use it! remove the battery and let it dry for a couple of days (~3days), and then try to put the battery back and turn it on.

Can you fix a nintendo ds with water damage??


try to dry the whole ds out, maybe with a hair dryer so all the water clears from the ds. If this does still not work, there will be a problem with the battery and i recommend you to take it to a shop to get fixed. If you still dont have any luck im very sorry but youll have to buy another nintendo ds.

My son accidently vomited on his ds lie console and now it doesnt work?


Your DS Lite is more than likely fried. As you may know almost all electronics can survive fresh water encounters, but sadly vomit isn't fresh water. There isn't very much you can do, but pray, and hope it may work one day, or purchase a new Nintendo DS Lite.

Sorry about that.

DS lite left in washer


Take the battery out right away and let it air dry in a window or under a light. dont use a fan or hair dryer. let it sit for about 2 maybe 3 weeks and put the battery back in it and it may work. you dont want the battery in it while there could be some kind of water in there still becuase it could cause a short on the mother board.
