i have dropped a old diskman in the toilet and it just needed to be air dried before it worked again so hopefully the same goes for game boys. if not you'll need to buy a new one and never take the plastic off just to be safe.

A gameboy? Seriously? You could try growing up? I hear that works too.

loledit: So my post isn't completely asshole-ish, you could just get one of those things that lets you play the games on a computer. Of course, then it isn't as portable as a gameboy.

DONT PUT IT IN THE DRYER.
Don't turn it on or anything. Leave it out in a dry, warm (NOT HOT) area, and leave it for several days. It will dry.

You can fully submerge your Gameboy, while it's on even, and it will be just fine, you've just got to let it dry naturally afterwards.

Also, this thread reminded me of this Gameboy.

Not while it's on, it will short circuit. Any piece of electronics can be fully submerged and as long as it's completely dried before being switched back on will function normally.

Last week my mobile phone went through the wash and I was ready to take it to the shop so I tested it one last time and it turned on. As for the water behind the screen, i just dealt with it until it all dried out. It only took about 3 days to naturally dry out.

Drop it in a tub of rice and seal the container for a few days. The rice will help leech the moisture out.

I think you should go with this one.

seriously, an emulator seems the easiest solution, If not you should let it rest somewhere warm, and if that doesnt work try open it, I once opened an ipod and its still working...
