Bought ipod from a pawn shop can i use the music on the ipod

sure. you can listen to it. as soon as you hook it up to your computer, with your itunes account, its going to erase the music on there and put in your playlist. so if you like it, dont hook it up to a computer to charger, use a wall plug.

Ipod Nano was washed in washing machine now it will not power on. Have tried putting it in rice, and putting it on a warm, not hot surface, and just letting it sit to dry out. Still nothing at all when I...

DO NOT TURN IT ON AGAIN.. l did the same thing to my iPod a while back and called Apple. Their reccomendations are to let it dry out for at least two weeks and try it again. Turning it on again while the interior may be wet could fry the circuts. It nearly killed me to go without it for that length of time but, it saved me loads of money in the long run You may have to replace the battery afterwards (water seems to kill the ability to hold a charge for long) but it seems a small price to pay. Places like Radio Shack or Batteries Plus offer a full battery replacement for about 30 bucks.

What can I do about my nano being washed in my washing machine?

Apple won't replace this thing under warranty if you water damaged it.  Best thing you can do is dry the thing off and put in in a zip lock bag filled with rice for a week.  The rice will **** the water out of this thing much like marriage sucks the life out of you.

My ipod wet through the wash no longer responds to thecomputer connection, no life whatsoever

you might be able to let it dry out for like a week, also try and leave it in a bowl of dry rice the rice will absorb the moisture and might save it other than that it looks pretty dead sorry

My 4 GB Nano was washed and dried, And will not turn on at all.

Well, you need to take the face cover off and make sure all the internal wires are still connected. If they are make sure they are dry and let it air out with the cover off. If it still doesnt work, then you have a broken ipod and you will have to send it to the factory and they will fix it for a small cost

I washed my Ipod

Apple won't cover any kind of accidental damage and they will be able to tell that it was water damage if you send it in. The only thing really you can attempt is to put it in a bowl of DRY rice for 24 hours. Sometimes this will pull enough of the liquid out of the internal components. Good luck I learned that trick while working as an apple tech rep and have used the rice trick once on a cell phone and the phone works to this day

My ipod nano chromatic ha water damage from the washer

Sometimes if you leave it sit for several days or so it will dry out completely and start to work again. I don't recommend charging it or plugging it in for several days or so as if there is still water in it, it may fry some of the chips. It may be beyond repair though.

My Ipod Nano Wont Charge on the wall Charger.

Hello Kawase,

I would suggest you try charging the unit this one time by connecting it to the computer. I suspect that the charger may be defective if plugging the wall charger into the iPod has no effect on the low battery warning. If the iPod is able to be charged from the USB port on your computer that would tend to confirm that the charger is not working. If the iPod does not charge when connected to either the computer or the wall charger then you may very well have a another defective iPod.

Best Regards

Wet iPod

i have heard (not sure if its true) but for phones if they get wet you put it in a sock and then in a dryer it will work, maybe it will work for a ipod but i have no idea if it works. Thats just a suggestion.
