If the system has been wet
take out the battery, and let the system sit for about a week some where dry
will have to purchase a new battery, you can do that from nintendo directly. if that does not work, then water damage would not be under nintendos manufact warranty, and you would be looking around 50 dollars to get a repair

I suggest you take it apart. You can get a special screwdriver for Nintedo ds, for about £2.50
Watch this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HQlTpTLUyFQ
You have probably damaged the battery (Replacement £15.00)
If screens are damaged (top screen £6 bottom £15)
First ensure its dried inside and out.
try to acertain which parts are damaged and need replacing if you are lucky it may just go back together and work.
Come back to me if you need further advice on parts and dis/assembly.
Good Luck!

If you take any under warranty equipment back to the supplier and they see it has been physically damaged by accidentally dropping or whatever, they will not repair it under the warranty. They will put a charge on it as it is not covered by the guarantee conditions.

Depends on how wet it got to be able to tell if it will still work properly. or if it isnt more than a a year you've had it and you managed to keep hold of the garantee you can get it fixed.

You can simply remove the Li-ion battery for a short while - it doesn't retain info when batteries removed.

SOURCE: Nintendo DS lite "L" "R" button dont work

OK the buttons are probably dirty. I had this same problem with my DS. Pry open the outside edges of the buttons until there is a gap. Blow into the gap while making sure you dont spit in the console. This should clear out the dirt and make your buttons work.

look inside the slot 1 slot, you probably have damaged pins. In this case you will need a new cartridge slot.

I spilt a bit of soap and water on my ds lite


You'll need to open your ds and clean it with alcohol and a small brush. this should help your system go back to normal, you should do it ASAP as it can built corrosion on your system.

Here is a link on where to open your system: http://www.techrepublic.com/photos/cracking-open-the-nintendo-ds-lite/171256

My daughters ds lite will not load her r4 card any more,it saysthere is no DS card inserted.!!


CAREFULLY use pressurized air on the ds hopefully this will clean out any dust. Blow on the hole. Check another game to see if it works instead of the game you constantly keep trying. Ask her if the ds ever got wet, because once a DS gets wet and you've been turning it on or off it fries the motherboard inside and it's pretty much useless.

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 ! : )

Ds lite


the pins in the game slot might be bent (shine a light in the slot and use a needle or pin to straighten any bent pins) or the pins might be dirty. slide something thin, wet with rubbing alcohol, over the pins-lightly.
