Title:

Can I fix my water damaged new 3ds?

Text:

I was drinking water and a few drops fell on the circle pad, screen, and A,B,X, and Y buttons. I was playing Super Smash Bros on it during this time. I wiped it off with my shirt. It was fine for about twenty seconds, but started flickering. I turned it off and back on and the top screen was black. The bottom screen was flickering, so I turned it off. I covered it with rice and put in a Ziplock bag. I found out later that you aren't supposed to turn it on. What should I do? I don't want to send it to Nintendo. If I have to, can someone suggest a cheap place to fix it at? Thanks.

P.S. It is the New Nintendo 3ds XL.
