This blog was a miracle. I accidentally spilled 7Up on my Nintendo DS yesterday. The only problem was, it wasn’t technically MY DS. The bottom screen was dark and would flicker and eventually die out. I scrambled on line and this was the first link that came up on the google search. I followed all the same steps you outlined (took out the battery, blow-dry, let sit for a full 24 hours) and I just turned it on and it seems to be working just fine. I am very very very grateful for this. Thanks.

No guarantees, but try using a small screw driver to remove the battery, then use a hair dryer on a low, warm setting and slowly blow dry it out for 15 to 30 minutes. Then put the DS in a sealed bag of rice for 48 hours (the rice will absorb the water over the 2 days). Whatever you do, do NOT try to turn it on until you are certain that it is dry on the inside.

Good luck,
Josh

Bro. I’m really grateful I read this. I got my DS wet earlier in school today.

Didn’t realize my bottle of alcohol in my bag was already leaking out. When I fished for my DS, it was already fricken wet. After drying the outside, I foolishly attempted to turn it on. I was quite happy it still worked. However, after reading online stories of possibly short-circuiting it (then damaging it permanently), my heart sank.

Hopefully it will also work tomorrow, just like yours did (which had it rougher).

And boy, aren’t you a fine writer. I had fun reading. Kudos.

Hello everybody!

I have a question: where do I need to live for my ninja theme to change? I am using the teahouse theme right now, but I love the ninja one as well, and yesterday I just set it as my theme, and waited for about 4 hours and the picture did not change… Does anyone have any idea why that might be? I live in the UK and this is also where I have made my e-mail address…

Thanks in advance!

I can top all of these! My daughter THREW UP on her DS Lite while playing it in the car on the way home last night. :( Now this morning, it won’t power on. It’s brand new, but we didn’t buy it from the store- we got off Craigslist. So, now I’m letting it sit in a bag of rice, hoping that I didn’t just blow $100 + money and new games for birthday two weeks ago! So sad.

Hey, so i got a ds lite like 3 years ago from a friend and he said it doesnt work anymore cause he dropped it in his tub. So he gave it to me and gave me an original ds that he said didnt work. So i thought i might keep it to see if i can fix it by going on youtube or somewhere.

3 years later, i went to a game store and bought a gameboy game cause i found my gba in my attic along with my 2 ds’s. Then i got tired of playing with barely any light on the gba so i finally tried fixing the ds’s.

First off, i went for the original and all i had to do was charge it lol. Then i tried the ds lite. I bought a charger for it and tried charging it, and the only thing that happened was the charging light went on but when i try to turn it on, it doesnt turn it on at all.

Now my question is, does anyone know how to fix a ds thats been dead from water for over 3 years?

My four year dropped his sister’s DSi into apple cider vinager while his feet were soaking in it. Do you think there is any hope it will still work after air drying for 12 hours? It just came on for a few seconds and went out. I only could take the battery out.
