Your first attempt to turn on a washed iPod is the critical one. If you're too quick to try to power it up and the water inside shorts out the electronics, you're done. You can try waiting until the iPod is really dry and power it on again; maybe it didn't short out the first time. But chances are, if you tried once and it didn't work, the damage has been done. There are several ways to try to dry out a soaked iPod….You can put it on a widow seal that gets a lot of sun for 2 days (that is usually your best bet but…I have even heard of people who have put their soaked iPod in a ziplock bag with kitty litter in it. For a few days…..You will more then likely need to do a reset on the iPod either way…..Here is a link to do the reset http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1320?viewlocale=e...) Good Luck and please leave me a rating…..Both ways worked for me…..dang thing is just too small and I forget to check my pockets all the time…

Ipod Nano 4th gen LCD backlight not working


Its definitely the logic board (motherboard) that has gone bad. Its not the actual screen nor LCD. Its the logic board. You could replace the screen with a new onje and the backlight still will not work. Nano's are known for this but of course apple won't admit to putting out a piece of **** logic board in all of the nano's or they would have to recall 10 million of them! So, they just play stupid and say your nano is out of warranty but we'll give you a 10% trade in discount. What a joke! I know this because i used to work for Apple ;-) They screw customers left and right to keep their profits up.

Ipod nano 3rd gen says I have less space than I do


Yes, it does seem like a rip off, but that little bit that seems to be gone is actually being used by the software that makes the iPod work, without it you would not be able to use your iPod at all. So don't worry, it is completely normal that you are missing half a GB.

I locked my ipod and forgot the code


If you have a third gen ipod nano and you locked the screen lock and forgot the code, well what you do is you hook your ipod to your PC,laptop ect. and disconnect it. It should be unlocked. But if you lock it you have to do that over again to unlock it.
