My nephew was thrown into a stock tank by his friends, he had his ipod in his pocket... also did not work.  I brought it home left in my car on the floorboard, for 2 very hot days. Then remembered it was still in the car... not sure if the heat from the sun helped, but couldn't hurt
Brought it inside noticed the charger plug-in area had built up corrosion, carefully cleaned it with a dry swab, thin rag, and made sure all the plating was free of corrosion... earphone input, etc
then I held down the play button (top) + select (middle) button till the apple appeared on the screen.

p.s. it's been awhile, it may also be the stop and play or stop and select. if at first you don't succeed, you know the rest.  trying all of these options should not harm the ipod...  proceed with caution. 
Long story,short. It is still working today.

Water damage ipod nano


It looks like your Ipod is damaged beyond repair.
If it could be repaired it maybe too expensive. I suggest you put your money towards a new Ipod.

Broken ipod, broken heart


Am soooo sorry 2 hear dat ya broke ya ipod.. but try dese it mite help ya access ya ipod..

But am not sure if its a screen lock or passcode lock..
If screen lock den basic reset n restart should work

but if its passcode den u must restore your iPod software from iTunes.
See “Updating and Restoring iPod Software”

Dont restore from backup if you have a passcode that you cant remeber.

You have to restore your ipod as a "new" device & then re-sync your content. Restoring from a backup will merely restore the lock.

But make sure before ya restore ya iPod u have a backup of d songs data n etc in d comp or els wer..

Hope it wors out 4 ya:)

If you don't mind losing all your data on the ipod, you can hard reboot it. You will have to restore it using itunes on any computer, then re-sinc it and it will work just fine. To do this you hold both the top screen lock button and the home button for 30 seconds and then you just plug it in to a computer. I hope this helps

I accidently washed my brothers i-pod in the washing machine, and after I realized that, I hooked it up to my laptop to see if it was working. And it didn't even show the battery sign when I plugged it...


I really doubt. but if your a bit savy. you could try useing an ipod remover tool(must be available on ebay) and open up your ipod and change the battery and try.(if its a HDD(ie,classic), even the hdd might have gone bad.

in that case id suggest you to open r ipod and cry it for a few days in the heat (coming from a hot light source, ie bulb) and take out your battery and place your ipods hdd in the freezer and then wipe of the moisture with a tissue after a few hours and then check if it works.

try all this after your try the apples 5R technique.

I accidently washed my ipod...when i looked it up on the internet, a considerable amount of websites say to let it sit. I let it sit but it still won't work. I can get my songs to play on my ihome, but it...


Put it in sunlight for 10 minutes, then try again. You can also try using a hairdryer. The moisture trapped inside needs to dry up before it can work properly. If this does not work then take it to the apple store or continue playing it thru iHome.

I washed my Ipod


Apple won't cover any kind of accidental damage and they will be able to tell that it was water damage if you send it in. The only thing really you can attempt is to put it in a bowl of DRY rice for 24 hours. Sometimes this will pull enough of the liquid out of the internal components. Good luck I learned that trick while working as an apple tech rep and have used the rice trick once on a cell phone and the phone works to this day
