Question about Apple iPod nano

Ipod nano 3rd generation


Liek all the other people on this website, mothers seem to like washing ipods...only this tiem it was dad!. we have not tried to turn it on at all & hung it up in a sock, over gentle heat for 2 weeks. not game to turn it on - as it now has mould growing under the screen.

Can you tell me how to open the nano as there seems to be no instructions for the 3rd generation version on the net. When it is open, what should we be doing? assume we just try & see if there is anything wet or rusty..but otherwise?? Would it be ok to try & clean the screen?

many thanks

Hi :) well, if you know anyone that you can trust to open your ipod, go for it. i would suggest you to take it in to Apple and ask them if they can get it repaired for you :) hope this helps :)

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.

Ipod nano 3rd generation and 1st generation nano

The first question I'm not sure. Is that the wireless network system that works with the wall outlets for power and networking?

The answer to the second question is No. You can only transfer playlists from ITunes into the IPod. Make sure your playlists are created in ITues before transferring.

Doesn't work at all

there isn't much you can do at that point unless you can narrow down what part is failing. most likely, the mother board is shorted somewhere. there are companies that do repair them but you might be better off getting a new one.
