Nintendo ds wont charge

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

It may be that the circut board in it was damage but not fried. It could also be that the part in the battery that holds charge was fired or permantly damaged. I had a cell phone that I dropped into a toliet after a band concert and I had placed it on top of the toliet paer holder. My hand hit it and it fell. It wouldn't turn on for a few days because it was wet but when it dried, it was completely fine. But after a while I began to not to pick up service good then not at all.....Evenually, I could no longer charge it and it died......You could take it to an electronic store to let them look at it but I don't no how much it would cost you. I DO agree with Karlito1234.....If anything else, just get rid of it and buy a new one....Hope I could help....*shruggs*....-Jade

My son got it wet!! and it won't charge now?

If the Nintendo itself works but it wont charge it means that the port were you plug it in is water damaged try to dry it with a hair dryer or something like that then plug the charger in then out to clean it but DO NOT STICK ANYTHING IN THERE LIKE A TISUE OR IT MIGHT BRAKE OF IN THERE usually drying helps but if you cant get it to work after this consider a refund or new Nintendo or check out some more answers

My son's DS Lite won't come on either. It is

well repairing is not ez and the issue maybe worse then you can handle. so i say check ur warranty as that will cover it, ur warranty is usually threw the store you bought it from.

Second call nintendo as they will be able to actually repair the product, im sure they will charge you, but they will also put a guarantee the repair. good luck

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.

Good morning; My grandson has a Nintendo DS and he dropped it in a puddle of water. It does not work; it wont turn on. Can you help. We tried charging it and drying it with a hair dryer. My email...

I'm having the same problem, too. My sister dropped it in the bathtub, and then turned on the power without letting it dry. The DS still turns on and hold charges, but the screens are messed up with flickers and blurs.
As I know, if you drop it in the water, do not turn on the power or it will be fried. Just let it dry, and then power up again to see if it still works. If you already turned on the power while there was still water in it, it's toasted.
