Charging for few minutes but won't turn on.


My brother accidentaly got wet my DSL. It won't turn on. The LED turns green for 2-3 seconds, but DS doesn't do anything. When I set it to charge it's charging for 5-10 minutes and then the LED stops glowing. I've bought new battery, but it's not working.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

sounds like your motherboard has blown, this can be repaired but it's pretty tricky to do this - you'd be better off buying a second hand motherboard and replacing it

note though that depending on how much water got in there, it may have also waterlogged the screens as well - if that's the case then you'd be better off buying another second hand ds - they're cheap enough on ebay these days

hope that helps
