When to know when you can play a 3ds game again.

So, I got my 2ds on regarding the fact it had water damage by putting it in a bag of rice last night, yet, I did try to play Kingdom Hearts in it which was a 3ds game, but, it gave a black screen. What can I do to get my games working again for it won’t immediately shut down on me?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

This will not work. I will try the rice and it may be a possibility that it could fix it. All I can do is hope and pray. God was on my side today. He's going to get me through this. I'm letting the ds itself stay outside of the bags and I'm getting the remaining Diet Coke that had gotten onto the games and check the progress of both the DS and the games to see if it was a real water damage or just a 2 day thing.


with water damage it causes corrosion. with electricity going through it, more corrosion builds up shorting other things. even if it works temporarily it may stop working later. @danj



Just wondering why you're saying that cleaning the device as advocated by @captainsnowball will not work.

One thing is for sure, rice will not work in the long term.

I agree with the corrosion and no rice thing but I also heard to not use any alcohol-
