Hi, my daughter dropped her ds lite in water a week ago,I thought maybe after a while it might come back on but no such luck as soon as I turn it on it turns straight back off??? Does anyone know if it can be repaired???? Thanks

yeah I think it has dried out completely not sure how I would tell??? But it's been a week? When I connect to the charger the light comes on for a few seconds then goes out and sometimes comes on again for a few seconds and goes off again!

try take the battery pack out , remove the casing if you know how and then let it dry out completely becfore turn it back on to avoid the short circuit

What condition is it in otherwise?

Would it pass as "recently bought"?

stick in the airing cupboard i did this after washing son ipod left it in there for three weeks but it works now good luck

dont know why but i couldnt access this thread so i sent you a pm and then my connection cut off so dont know if you got it?

ahem.... take it back!!!

when this happened to my son it was coca cola! and i was told to run it under water and then put it in a bowl and cover it with rice completely and leave it a few days i did and it worked perfect again and seemingly the rice absorbs all the liquid, i have stuck to this a few times when the boys have been careless!
