Hi the chances are not but if it has only just been dropped down the loo and its still wet then do the following

1 get the vac out and put the smallest attatchment on it then switch it on and **** all the water out of the ds keep doing this for about 20min or so
2 after you have done the above place the ds on a towel and put a desktop lamp shining on it from about 20cm away and leave the light on for 4 or 5 hours then switch the light off and leave ds off for another 8 hours to ensure it has all dried out

then try switching it on, if it works your lucky and dont drop it down the loo again, if it dont work then its not worth getting it fixed as it would cost way to much, your better off selling it on the auction site as spares or repairs, then buy another one that works.

sorry their is no easy fix but sometimes you can be lucky and it will work and other times it wont.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

My ds drop in the toilet and it doesnt work even though i use my hairdryer and also left it in the airing cupbord and it still dont work

on the time that you dropped it in the toilet it is really it would be a miracle that it will still work for sure that the motherboard and circuitboards of the console are damaged due to the liquid that went inside it better have that replaced not repaired because for sure that the warranty will not cover it

Drop in toilett, when try to turn on light and panel blinks once then goes black

Toilets and pools are deadly for electronics. Your only hope is to get the machine as dry as possible before trying to turn it on again. Put the unit in front of a fan and try to get all that dampness out of there. After 24hrs it may turn on.

DS lite was dropped and now it won't work.

They usually don't work properly after they've been dropped. Nintendo carries a 1 year warranty, they will replace it for free (but not if you've used cheat codes (Action Reply), etc). I wouldn't mention that you've dropped it when calling them.

Clean the battery contacts and the DS pins with alcohol and toilet paper or qtip. Do the same with the game contacts and the slot pins taking care not to broke them.

If using a flashcart then you have a defective unit.

Nintendo ds lite wont turn back on

Not sure if this will help you, but my son dropped his on to a concrete pavement and it wen black, the charge lite would only come up for one second then go out when I plugged it in to charge. Just for fun, I had a spare battery and changed it. In this instance, the system started working again.

Not sure how this can happen, but dropping it on the floor seems to have killed the battery that was in it. A simple replacement battery did the trick for me.

Good Luck in fixing yours
