how did it get wet? or better said how much water did it take?

I think the best thing to do is open up the device ( here is a link of the 3 ds but is almost the same Nintendo 3DS Teardown )

and clean the mainboard and components with isopropyl alcohol. afterwards let it dry.

it is possible that the battery is dead. due to the water.

but first try to clean the components and let us know

kind regards,

In addition to previous reply, after cleaning with alcohol I will suggest a 5 min tratment on medium heat with a heat gun.

That usually removes any humidity and of course if having any oxidation, concentrate on those spots.

Good luck.

But what if you are too paranoid to open the system? What should you do then?
