... You should probably throw it away and buy a new one. If it was on when it hit the water, then you probably shorted out every circuit inside it, and it's nothing more then an pretty table weight now. At the very least there is probably corrosion all over the place inside it. It's a write-off :(

I accidently dropped my Audiovox DV D Player Remote Control in the bathtub. Now it doesn't work.

take out the batteries.take it apart and rinse and dry all the pc board.leave for 24 hours.reassemble.
you would be shocked how many times they work. why? bathwater is not pure water and conducts electricity as the salt from the body makes it conductive.
once it dries out,it may work

My sister experienced the same thing - Somehow there was a melted ice pak over me and my sisters NDS so i read the Manual and it said if u move suddenly from a cold place to a warm/hot place water drops may form inside - so dont play or charge the NDS for a few days NOTICE! If it is fixed you may have to blow into it every time you play for aprox. a week

Well one things for sure if you dont play with it the ds wouldnt just refuse to play, have u dropped it on has any water been splashed on it? If you have then thats what has caused the problem so go and get it fixed, if you havnt got any water on it or dropped it then your DS must be broken im sure you can get it fixed, if not get a new one.

Hope this helps!!!!

Canon sd 800 is is not working

OOh, here we go! Yoiu did right by removing the battery ASAP. The memory card is sealed so itll just dry. This is entirely up to you to do, I assume no liability but your camera is not working anyway so it may be worth a try. You need to flush the camera with distilled water. Yes, the entire camera needs to be rinsed completely of the bathwater with distilled water (no minerals) and then air dried. The entire camera will get immersed in the distilled water and then air dried over about a week, put it on a cookie sheet by lightbulb of a lamp for some warmth so the draining water doesnt pool and get back in. Then you put it in the fridge for 3 days to really suck the moisture out. Let it air dry for another day and then put the battery back in and cross your fingers. Sounds totally wacky? I looked this up earlier this week for something else and ran across this guys post about cellphones falling into water, toilets, etc and he says he is 9 for 9 in bringing them back to life. He even uses 95% alcohol to speed up the water displacement. Its worth a try as NO warranty covers water damage unless its Circuit City ESP, and that policy was over 10 years ago.
