Put it in a warm and dry place for a few days. If that doesn't help open the iPod and clean and dry it out as much as you can. Here's a guide on how to disassemble an iPod. Maybe a tech savy friend can do it for you. If you want to pay to have a service do it for you there are third party Repair Services.

Purchase and eyeglass repair kit and get ready to do minor repair. The device is not completely dry on the inside. Water gets trapped and wont dry unless you open it up. I know you probably don't want to take it apart, but if you don't the water is going to destroy it anyway. Find the tiny screws that hold the case together and gently remove them. Use a piece of paper to make reminders exactly what goes where and work on a tabletop so you lose nothing. Only take it apart until you see the moisture. Use a blow dryer on the lowest setting (no heat) and evaporate as much liquid as possible. Leave it open for a couple days and be sure there is no moisture left. Avoid touching anything with your bare hands because oils from your skin are not good for electrical components. Now, as long as nothing shorted out, you should be able to reassemble the device, charge it overnight and resume using it. Touchy work, but worth saving. P.S. don't work around carpet as static discharge isn't good for these components either. Good Luck!!!

Fell in water


DO NOT TRY TO TURN IT ON!!! You will only fry the circuits. Remove the battery and card. Dry the compartment as well as you can. Bury the camera in a bowl of dry rice for one week. Then, you can try to turn it on (keeping your fingers crossed). Even if it works, you still have the problem of water marks on the interior lens elements. Also, I'm assuming this was fresh water and not salt water.

Our camera fell in water for about one minute with the camera on. now it will not work. will it ever work again? i was able to save the memory care with alot of pictures on it tho.


If you tried to turn it on while water was inside, you may have fried the circuits. You can try to dry it out by burying it in a bowl of dry rice for one week. Then try to turn it on and keep your fingers crossed. Even if it works, there may be a film over the lens elements inside the lens tube. Good luck.

I washed and dried my ipod touch. It was in a ipod sock and zipped in a fleece vest pocket. What do I do. It still has water under the glass.


leave it alone for a few days to weeks to let it dry and dont try and turn it on untill your 100% sure that all the water is out of it and completely dry and you might have a chance of it still working

LG Vu phone fell in water and touch screen is not working.


Really your only option is to get a different phone. Since there is water damage it voids your warranty so you would have to turn to insurance. If you don't have insurance you may be able to do an upgrade or you would have to buy one outright. If you can't do that than you can get a prepaid phone and put you sim in that and it will work.

My blackberry world fell in water quickly


Same trouble with my Curve a few months ago. You are likely going to have to get a replacement.

Once the damage is done, it's done. For future reference, the longer you can afford to let it dry out (a week or more even), the better chance it will work and keep working.

My phone fell into a cup of water, i immediately removed it, opened the back, removed the battery, wiped it and dried it for two days but when i packed it back and switch it, the screen didnt come up but...


If water penetrated inside the LCD display , then the display must be replaced. Moreover, the liquid may have shorted some component , and in that case there is more repair job to be done.

All you can do is removing external covers if possible, and drying the phone a little longer If the phone does not come up after one week, then repair or replace it.

V3 got wet


sorry to say this but a wet phone is ruined. You will have to take it to a tech at your phone server. They will either repair it or you will have to get another one. Water and phones do not go together at all. Sux.
