Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player

1 Answer

IPod Troubles Hello! My iPod fell into the pool a month ago, I didn't turn it on and I let it dry for 2 weeks, when I tried to turn it on, it didn't work, I plugged it in to charge and it made a short squeal and nothing happened. Then yesterday I plugged it into my computer and it made this loud screeching sound as long as the cable was connected, but no screen image or computer recognition of the ipod. Is there ANY way that I can backup the music from this iPod from the HD, I don't mind building a cable or whatnot, but I am a little short on cash right now and I don't want to get it serviced or buy a new one. Thanks for your help!

You could try removing the hdd
But you would have to build a compatible cord to set the hdd up with your ide pc

I have no idea how, but i know that it will work theoretically

Unless your ipods hdd is damaged by water, which could be liekly.
Thanks

Ipod+washer=not good.


It is possible that you damaged only the part that takes a charge, so you may have a much less portable iPod. If it had just happened and you let it sit in some dry white rice, that absorbs the moisture and will occasionally solve some problems. At this point though, I'd say that it's probably shot...

The screen won't light up on my ipod, but


Unfortunately there is no solution since the water has messed up the LCD. Have you tried going to settings and check if the back light option is on?

I pod got wet wont work


Ipon the ipods case up. then Put the ipod in a zip lock bag full of uncooked raw white rice. seal the bag and leave it in there for 2 days. rice absorbs water. it should dry it up.
dont try to plug the ipod in or it will fry the circuit and you will destroy it.
If you need to know how to open an ipod case go to my website.

Fell in water tank


If you can remove or disconnect the battery and let your ipod dry inside an air conditioned room for a week then if it will work you are lucky enough.

Once it is wet water will cause somewhat of a short circuit but if you were able to remove the power from the gadget sooner you might be able to save it. Good luck!

Repair ipod


If the iPod was on, and fell in the pool, then probably not. If it wasn't I would let it dry out, use a hairdryer and blow the water out through the cracks (and headphone and docking jack) and let it sit for a few days. Try to use it then. Since the warranty doesn't cover it, i'm sorry if it won't work.
