Check if you hear sound when it is turned on. If this is the case, then it's a simply a video problem. If you are well versed in the internal hardware of handheld game consoles, then open it up and fix / replace any video components required. If not, you will want to send it in to Nintendo for repair or call the company. If you don't hear sound, you will want to go ahead and either purchase a new DSI or send it in for repair, as it will not be easily fixable alone.

My son dropped his dsi xl in the loo and he tried pushing the power button to turn it off. I've blower dried it. I haven't be able to take it apart to dry out, but now I have it in a bag with rice....

First you want to keep it plugged in and start it. If it doesn't start, let it charge and try again. If it still doesn't start you might want to call and check if you have warranty over it, and then send it back to get it replaced. That or get a new one all together.

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.

My son's DSI will not turn on. He has charged the battery and it still doesn't turn on. Could it only be that the battery life has expired and it time to be replaced?

It very well could be the rechargeable battery could have gone bad. This is an easy fix that even the least mechanically inclined person could do themselves. The link and the video below show you how to replace a DSI rechargeable battery. The link below also gives you information on ordering certified nintendo replacement parts. Hope this helps.

My computer fell off a table

Since your computer fell off a table this is definately a hardware problem, something might have shifted inside and in this case I would not recommend that you open it to see what shifted.
I would recommend that you take it to a repair store for them to pull it and fix it for you. Sorry to hear.

Nintendo DSI keeps freeing and will not turn of what do i do ?

My problem was fixed by making sure the off button was pushed down for more than 15 seconds.My son was the one trying to turn it off and apparently he did not understand how long you needed to hold the button down to try the fix. The white screens must have been a fluke as it has not happened again in the past couple weeks..
