Can I fix my water damaged 3ds XL?

So a few weeks ago my 3ds XL came into contact with half a bottle of water that leaked in my bad. Since then it seems to have dried out and the power and charge light both work and come on when the charger is in. When I press the power on button it turns on and seems to power up, but just as the screen is about to come on it just cuts off and the power button goes off. Any ideas how to fix it?

Hi,

As you know water and electronics and electricity are not a good mix.

The water causes corrosion and provides circuit paths for the electricity which were not in the console's operating design and could damage the components.

First do not turn on your console and then you need to with the console turned off, remove the battery as soon as possible to minimize further damage.''

Then you need to dis-assemble the rest of the console and clean all the affected parts using Isopropyl Alcohol 90%+ (available at most pharmacies) to remove all traces of corrosion and water. Do not use "rubbing alcohol" as in some cases this is only 70% IPA or less, can contain scents and other ingredients and is not as effective. If you do check the label to verify the amount of IPA.

Here is a link that describes the process.

Electronics Water Damage

As always with electronics, especially surface mounted PCBs be gentle when handling and especially when brushing away the corrosion. You do not want to remove any components from the board.

Hopefully after you have done all this the console might possibly work correctly again.

Here is a link to the ifixit guide(s) for repairing your console.

3DS XL Repair

If this process seems too daunting, take your console to a reputable, professional electronics repair service, experienced in water damage repair and ask for a quote for a repair. If you decide to do this, do it sooner than later.

Yes, but but would need to replace most of the electronics unless you know which board is damaged.
