Hi golden, I don't think I have good news for you.

If the Ipod is gone through a complete wash, staying a long time in cold and hot water with detergent, and being bumped around all the time, then drying it will not be enough.

The water has for sure gone into the LCD display, into the internal memory, has shorted circuits etc.

The internal battery had lso been probably damaged by water.

I am afraid the only thing you can do is getting a replacement if the Ipod is still covered with guaranty.

Let me know if by chance the Ipod turns on showing something on screen.

My ipod got got in the washer and got washed


Yes there is something you can do. Put rice in a sealable container and place your ipod in the rice. try to cover the ipod completely. the rice is a good sponge for water and it is almost the only way you can fix a waterlogged ipod.

If it actually went through a wash cycle I don't think that theres much hope of it working again.

Washing machine safe


Good job - you were lucky. The casing on this one is water-resistant. If water had touched to electronics - bye-bye!

IPod shuffle got wet in the washing machine


If you've been trying to turn it on, then it's unlikely to work again. If anything like that happens again, "DON'T TURN IT ON". Take the item apart carefully keeping the screws together and leave the parts spread out in a warm dry place like an airing cupboard for about a week. Then put it back together and cross your fingers.

Ipod nano 4GB is WET


Greetings Goldenlily13,

As a mom who did the exact same thing to her 14 year olds Ipod, I can totally empathize. However the only solution I came up with was to purchase a new Ipod. My daughter still has her original one due to sentimental value, it was engraved. It still has not ever worked again and this happened in March.

Sorry I don't have a better solution.

hi there

im so sorry for that friend. what you can do is bring that to a service center and hope that the technician can dry and replace the batteries for that and hope that it will still work.

I think you fried it. put it under a lamp for a while (not too close to the lamp) to try and dry it out. if that doesnt work, something shorted out inside, and you can repair it or get a nice shiny new one
