    Hey so awhile ago I managed to drop my new 3DS XL in a pool.

    Yeah a pool,

    Basically not going to tell the full story, but it was related to an issue with me and a few people ;) lol.

    I was curious if I could still sell, or revive some of the parts, the 3DS was turned off while it was being thrown in the water, closed, and hasn't been turned on since, or opened (haven't attempted turning it on.) I heard drying it may also work but I would highly doubt it in this situation.

    Specifically the 3DS has an IPS Screen, would I be able to 'fix' that part of it, and sell it, or replace it with another 3DS?

    Put it in rice overnight or for 24 hours. It helps dry the water inside the 3ds. Ive managed to revive a few electronics this way including my 3ds lol
