If you have not tried to use it then yes it will BUT you must let it dry out completely before you press any buttons, i suggest putting it on top of a radiator that is not boiling hot, or somewhere very warm for about a week, its not getting wet that is the problem, it is pressing buttons while its wet, creating a short circuit. however if you have pressed a button this does not mean it will never work again, but leave it for as lomg as possible to dry out, there are no moving parts inside an Mp3 player so you should be ok, but bear in mind if you have pressed a button while it was wet you may have caused a short circuit, but may not have. time will tell.

SOURCE: mp3 player went through washing machine

My daughter's Zune went through the washing machine and dryer in May 2008. I checked the internet & it looked pretty bleak. I couId see water inside the screen area & it would not turn on at all. I decided to just leave it sitting on the counter for awhile instead of just throwing it away. Three weeks later I tried to turn it on & got a low battery display. We plugged it in, charged it and it has been working ever since (it is now August 2008).

Problem with my washed mp3 player


The problem is that there is some corrosion on the terminals that is draining the battery. Without taking it apart or sending it in, there is nothing that you can do.

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

hi thanks for using fixya!

The first thing you should do is not to turn the power on of the player, once it was soaked or wet very hardly, you must let it dry first before turning the power on, to avoid short circuit. In your case, we are not sure if its going to work again, but let it dry properly, but if its too late, and won't work again, maybe it is time to buy a new one, and start to be more careful! good luck!

Please do not forget to rate me positively! thanks!

Washing machine safe


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