Do not attempt to switch the ds on and store it in a warm / dry location for a couple of weeks. This may sort the problem. If you have tried several time to switch it on this probably will have shorted the board and caused permanent damage.
Hope this helps

Nintendo dsi shut off


I'm going to say your Ds is damaged from the water and has finally decided to putter out and fail. Unfortunately I think your only option is to get a new handheld. Sorry man.

My son had a liquid spill on his ds lite and the top screen went blank. Following troubleshooting advice, I dried out the battery etc and reassembled it. It has been working ok for 12 hours approx but now...


This happened because residual of water, or consequential oxide on wiring or board contacts caused a short inside device.
Try drying again, if it still does not work, one of the components has blown, you will probably need to replace the internal board.
Check for oxide on connectors.

I spilled a drink on my ds lite. when i try to turn it on the light turns on but not the screen. how do i fix it?


Let it air dry for a few days and try again. If it still doesn't work, you may be able to contact Nintendo support, however I doubt they'd do much about it unless you have an active warranty on the product. If they don't, you won't be able to fix it unless you happened to go to college for engineering. I'm very sorry.

My son's psp will not turn on nor will it charge he says that some water might have spilled on it is there anyway of fixing this?


hello, Sounds to me if water has indeed spilled into the PSP then is has shorted out. Can i ask was it charging at the time water was spilled onto the device? I can suggest Replacing the battery, and also the charger. this should fix the problem.
push the "Push" button on the back off the device. Slide the cover off, place finger at top off battery. (were there is a lip) Pull finger backwards. battery is now out off the device.
Any further questions please feel free to ask. Thanks for using fixya.

Hint: Defeat Dialga or Palkia Easily
Your partner or you is a "Treecko", teach it Dig. You also need to get a Violent Seed and an X-Eye Seed or two. When you come to Dialga or Palkia, before they can use any moves just hit them with an X-Eye Seed. If you miss, they will not attack, and will just pick up the item. Once they are under the mighty doom of the X-Eye Seed, give the Violent Seed to whoever is the Treecko and then use Dig when Dialga or Palkia are close. The attack does 500 or so damage for me, and one blow KO'ed them. Even better, if you or your partner is a Pikachu with the Treecko, you would then teach it Agility, which will give you up to four attacks in one turn.
Thanks for using Fixya.

My son spilled a drink and got his nintendo DS wet , it all works but the bottom touch screen. How do I fix it?


Hello!

You will most likely need a new DS touchscreen.

I recommend that you clean the DS immediately. Even though its working now, the liquid could still damage components overtime if not cleaned immediately

My ds lite will not turn on


Since this was caused by water damage. Your really out of the Warranty Boundries. A Typical Nintendo Warranty covers: Faulty equipment (Only Nintendo Products), Device stops working or works poorly (But due to Appropriate use)
Unless you purchased a warranty from a store, and even those usually don't cover water damage. Your most likely out of luck, Sorry :(
