Apparently if you put in a bowl of rice it will dry it cause the rice soaks up the water. i would pull the the cover off first so it dries quicker and easier

What to do when you accidently spill water on your Ds Dsi or Dsi XL

Dry it out as soon as you can and DO NOT try and turn it on while its wet otherwise, it will be fried. If you did what i told you not to before you read this, first of all try getting a new battery. Order one and see if you can still play. If you cant, send your Ds,Dsi, or Dsi XL to Nintendo and they will fix your Ds. Hope this helped! :D

Can you fix a dsi that got wet

You could try to pack it in uncooked rice for a few days, which should draw the moisture from inside the device. If it was on when it got wet and shorted out, or if it was completely immersed in water, I would not expect any miraculous fix. In that case it's probably toast.

I dropped my ds i xl in a sink full of water but pulled it out quickly and i am trying to dry it but i tryed to turn it on while it was wet

Unfortunately the water might have short circuited your Dsi. What happened is that there is all this water in there, and then you sent an electric current through your Dsi and it short circuited. What I would recommend doing is immersing your Dsi in a bowl a dry uncooked rice, make sure it is covered. The rice will soak up the moisture and hopefully get all the water out. Hopefully your Dsi might recover but unfortunately there is a slim chance. Next time anything like this happens always wait until you dry everything before you turn it on. I'm not sure whether the manufacturer has a warranty or a policy in the case of getting a Dsi wet. I would call whoever holds your warranty with it.

Good luck!

If the dsi xl has gotten wet is it completely lost?

Let it dry out for about 3 days. One way is to put it in a container with uncooked white rice. The rice should soak up some of the moisture. It should work fine after its been dried out.

My dsixl got wet

DON'T try and turn it on. Remove the battery immediately and let the DS dry out for a week before putting the battery back in and trying to turn it on.

My nintendo only blink whenever i open the power. it gets wet by my son.

You need to take apart let dry and theres two small fuses you've blown. You will need to just put a glob of solder over them unless you want to buy fuses and add them to the blown ones.
