Take out the battery immediately and let the whole thing air dry.
Once it's dry, reinsert the battery and see if it works, but only if the battery didn't get wet. If it did, you will need to get a new battery. If possible, borrow a battery from a friend to make sure the system isn't damaged first, as the batteries are not cheap and have to be specially ordered.
If the system doesn't work with a replacement battery, you can either send it to Nintendo for repairs or buy a new one.

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.

I got my DS touch screen all wet and now it doesn't respond to being touched. What do I do so that it responds to being touched now.

Electronics like a Nintendo DS get messed up if you get them all wet (e.g. drop it in a tub full of water). My guess is after you got your DS all wet, your touch screen stopped working.

My only solutions to this problem is:

I got my DS wet, and no more sound.Is there a way to get it back?

Ok fist if your life is ruined just because you cant play a game then that is pretty sad. But i will give you a suggestion that you will not like.

When it got wet it must of gone into your speakers and fried them. That's might be what happened to it. You could buy new speakers and replace them your self. (you should probably not do that) or send it in to get fixed. Just tell them what is wrong.

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 ! : )
