Dropped water on this dsi xl, does not charge, led blinks!
Hello there, this Xl is not charging, the led blinks and goes off.
It is working fine with a charged batery from another XL, and, both f1 and f2 fuses are good.
I cleaned whole board, both sides, let it heat at the sun to dry it up, and all caps / res banks are looking good too.
Fist off you are going to need to replace the battery that was exposed to water. Liquid kills those batteries. Secondly, I am somewhat confused when you say it is working fine with a charged battery from another xl. Did you try charging that battery in the problematic DSi xl? If so please tell me what the lights were doing? I would try cleaning the board again with alcohol and a brush. I would also look at the wires where they go into the battery connector.

On a DSi the orange charging light blinking indicates improper voltage/current
Morenomdz, I would think that by your question you have already answered it all by yourself. If it works "fine with a charged battery from another xL' then just go ahead and get a new battery for this one. Obviously the water destroyed your battery and needs to be replaced. Unless, of course, there are other issues that you have not yet addressed with your question. Good Luck..
