If it just happened, submerge the whole thing into dry, uncooked rice. Leave it sit for 24-36 hours.
This is not guaranteed to work, but it has been known to save some cellular phones.

If you haven't turned it on since the accident...it might be possible. Firstly, you will need to try and get all of the water out of it as possible. I've heard that rice helps get water out of cell phones that have been submerged...but for a device that large, it would require a large box and a large bag of rice (a few pounds).

The problem is that if you try to turn it on while it's still wet inside it could cause a short circuit. Avoid turning it on until all the components are dry.

If you want to try the rice trick, find a large box to put the board in, then get a large bag of rice and dump it over the board. Leave it set for a few days. The rice soaks up the moisture. You need enough rice to completely cover the board so it can't be seen at all. I know it sounds silly....but it works with smaller devices.

How can i re connect the wii fit balance board to my wii ?


Synching can be completed only if a compatible game disc is running in the console. Compatible game discs (such as Wii Fit) will display the Wii Balance Board icon on their packaging.
The Wii Balance Board must be synced to each compatible game individually.
These sync settings will be saved even after the console is turned off.

Follow these directions to sync the Wii Balance Board (so that it is recognized by the Wii console):

Insert a Wii Balance Board compatible game disc (such as Wii Fit) in the Wii console.


Use the Wii Remote to select the Disc Channel from the Wii Menu, then select "Start" to begin the game.

Open the SD Card slot cover on the front of the Wii console.

Remove the Battery Cover on the bottom of the Wii Balance Board.

Press and release the SYNC button on the Wii Balance Board. The Power LED on the board will start blinking.

Press and release the SYNC button on the console while the Power LED on the board is still blinking.

The Power LED will stop blinking and light steadily once the synchronization is complete.

How do you sync the wii fit board and wii console


  • Put four AA batteries into the battery housing located on the underside of the Wii Balance Board.

  • Insert a Wii Balance Board compatible game into the Wii system.

  • Select the "Disc Channel" on the screen with the Wii remote, and choose "Start."

  • Open the SD card slot to reveal a sync button on the Wii system. This is located behind a cover under the power and eject buttons.

  • Turn the Wii Balance Board upside down.

  • Remove the battery cover under the balance board to reveal another sync button.

  • Pres the sync button on the balance board, then press the sync button on the Wii. Do not hold down the buttons. You know it is synchronized when the blue light on the Wii Balance Board stays steady

  • Place the board on a flat surface directly in front of the TV. Face the power button away from the TV.

    Basement flooded, combustion air flap employed.any way to repair?


    Hello,
    So you had water enter the burner combustion chamber through the access panel. That can be cleaned out, but was the gas control valve just above it on the water heater submerged under water as well? If so, do not use it or try to repair it. It is unsafe to use and the control must be replaced. Now whether or not it's worth while to replace just the gas control, depends on the age and condition of the water heater itself. Also, is this covered under your home owner's insurance policy? Damage from flooding is usually not covered in a standard policy,unless you had it added specifically. But it is covered if you had a water line break which resulted in the water damage. You should find out before you proceed with changing the control. We had the latter occur and our insurance co (State Farm) covered everything from clean-up to replacement). Hope that helps. Douglas

    You have more than one board that got water on it. Most likely a lost cause. Check with home owners insurance for repair or replacment value.
