What damages can water damage cause?
Well, recently I managed to drop my water bottle on the table where my 3DS XL were.
The DS were in the water for roughly 20 seconds, but I think water came in the cartridge hole (I didn't have a game in at the time)
I have experienced now that bottom screen is flickering with black patches around it, and weird colors.
After a while, both screens went black.
I have taken out the battery, and SD card; and let the whole thing dry for roughly 3 days.
Now when I try to turn it on, nothing happens.
No blue light, no screen activity, no sound.
The only thing that is reacting is when I put in my charger. The charger light, lights up.
Is there anything I can replace or troubleshoot to see if this is fixable, or is this a lost cause?
I only need the 3ds to work for about 10 minutes, so I can transfer my content to another 3ds..
Nintendo Europe isn't really willing to help me transfer from the old one, to the new one.
Basically, if it's dead; I need to re-purchase everything..
Thanks in advance..
Is this a good question?
