My daughter had her dsi in a grocery bag with an empty water bottle. When she got home she tried to play it and it would turn on and the first screen that says tap to continue showed up but not the dsi...

I would let it sit in rice for 24 hours. The rice should pull water from the device. DO NOT TRY A HAIR DRYER. The static electricity will fry anything electrical in the device.

My Nintendo Dsi dropped in a mop bucket and it wont work what do i do

If the device is under warranty, or and extended warranty, you will need to contact the warranty provider to have the unit replaced. That is, if they cover such an incident. The water damage has rendered the device inoperable, unfortunately.

The R button on my son's DSI will turn the game system completely off. And if you move the the top part of the DSI it will also turn the game off also!!!

Sounds like a manufacturing defect (or your son dropped it and didn't tell you). I'd suggest calling Nintendo and seeing what they can do about it under warranty.

Too much water draining from Vulcan Electric H/W relief valve.

Dear Julie. Do you have an expansion tank installed? If so it is probably waterlogged. If you come home shower etc. use lots hot water then go to bed or leave the cold water in your tank heats and expands as it heats. In the old days a toilet ballcock valve would relieve this pressure but modern toilets with diaphragm valves wont so the pt valve relieves pressure. Installing an expansion tank on the cold water line near the heater will absorb the extra water & stop the pt valve from activating.

Hi my son has dropped his new dsi in a bowl of water dont know how long in there took battery out and drying out in airing cupboard wot else should i do

That's pretty much all you can do. Some people suggest burying it in white rice for a few hours to draw out the moisture but I've never tried that method myself.

I had this same problem after my son dropped and broke his DS lite. The hinge broke and it was constantly freezing up. I did some research and decided that repair wold be the better and cheaper option to buying a new one. I found this repair place site online . I filled out the online order form and shipped it off. They had great customer communication through their website and kept me updated every step of the way.We had our system back within a few days as good as new which made my son very happy and at a very reasonable price which made me very happy. If you are looking into repair for your game system I strongly recommend them.

No water in bucket

possible that the cooling fins have frosted over...this happens when a cold surface appears in a humid room that does not have enough heat to prevent the freeze-up on the fins. If you look at the fins (above the water bucket), you may see the frost. One solution is to turn up heat in room, followed by placing a fan to blow air through fins if still frosted. If you do not have a frost problem, then ensure compressor is running. If comp is running, then return dead unit.
