    I was playing my ds on the treadmill and I got sweat on it, it started turning itself off. Today, I tried it again and it stayed on longer but its still turning itself off. Will it fix itself once the water is completely evaporated or is my ds done? fat ds I've had since I got my first paycheck at wendys when I was a teen, im gonna hang it on my wall if I cant get it fixed. lol

    Firstly, stop turning it on until you're sure it's completely dried or you risk frying a component.

    get a recepient with rice, and let the ds covered in rice for a while, it will absorve the humidity

    after that, get a drier, and dry it up

    it should work
