If ever you get any electrics wet,turn it off immediately and don't turn it back on. Try your best to take it apart as much as possible, putting the screws in a safe place like a zip lock or sealy bag, and taping them to the item so they don't end up in a safe place that you can never remember. Put all of the bits layed out on something like a towel in a dry, warm place. Airing cupboard is a good one. Leave them alone for at least a week. If when you come back to it there's any evidence of water at all, leave it for longer. When it's bone dry, put it back together with your fingers crossed. I've managed to do this a number of times and have saved 3 laptops, 2 iPods, a desktop pc, many remotes, 2 diskmans...the list goes on.

If you've got it wet and you try to turn it on when there's any moisture inside, you're very likely to short something normally rendering your item useless. Some parts may still work, such as LED's etc butthat's just an area that probably didn't get wet. If when you open the item there's any smell of electrical burning, or black residue then there's been a short.

I was given an i pod shuffle as a gift from a friend but when i went to apple support the i pod had been disabled. how do i fix it so that i can put my own apple itunes on. thanks anne marie


To reset iPod shuffle:
  1. Disconnect iPod shuffle from the computer (if connected).
  2. Move the switch on the iPod shuffle to the OFF position. Note that when iPod shuffle is off, the green stripe by the switch is not visible. ht1655_1.gif ht1655_2.gif ht1655b_3.gif ht1655--4th_shuffle-001-en.png

  3. Wait five seconds. For iPod shuffle (3rd and 4th generation), wait ten seconds.
  4. Move the switch to the play in order or the shuffle position. The green stripe will be visible in either position. For iPod shuffle (2nd and 4th generation), slide the power switch on (and you can see the green stripe).

My i pod plays a few seconds of a song and stops!


Your I-pod is in "shuffle mode". To remove it out of shuffle mode, turn the shuffle mode switch to "off" This switch is located on the bottom right side of unit.

My ipod wont show on the computer but will charge?


Hello,

If you want the i-pod to,I hope you have I-tunes software and a cable for your I-pod.

Of you don't have I-tunes, you can install i-tunes from I-tunes website
: www.apple.com/itunes/

You can get a detailed information on how to put song on your
i-pod from the link below.

I washed my daughter's ipod shuffle which was in her jeans pocket


These are never easy situations to experience, but I can only advise you to disconnect the iPod Shuffle for the computer, make sure it is turned to "Off" mode and allow it to sit in a place where there is sunlight or heat for at least 3-4 days untouched.

I have heard this process being done by a few folks for different iPod/iPhone devices, so hopefully this will work for you.

This is however, the only suggestion in such cases where an electronic device like your iPod shuffle has been subjected to moisture or water.

If this still does not help, you will more than likely have to take the iPod Shuffle in for service at an Apple-authorized iPod repair center or unfortunately replace it with a new iPod.

I hope this helps and you are able to get your iPod back to functionality again.

Regards,

-Terry

My ipod wont stay charged


This may not be the answer you are looking for but your I pod might not be fully charged, meaning that you are not plugging it in the computer/docking system long enough.( it takes much longer than 15 minutes to charge the battery. So you might want to plug it in/dock it over night) Or you may be playing a game that uses a lot of MB/GB so it kills the battery. And make sure that you press the play/pause button down for at least five seconds before switching the little switch at the top of your I pod. If you don't press the play/pause button for five seconds and just switch the switch at the top a little lock will appear on the left corner meaning you need to hold the play/pause button down for five seconds then the i pod screen goes black at that time flick the switch at the top off. -hope it helps owner of i pod nano and I pod touch.

IPod went through the washer.


Open it to see if the Lithium battery is swollen. If it is you might only have to replace it. If you have tried to turn it on much while wet, your Pod is Pot. Sorry,

IPod shuffle got wet in the washing machine


If you've been trying to turn it on, then it's unlikely to work again. If anything like that happens again, "DON'T TURN IT ON". Take the item apart carefully keeping the screws together and leave the parts spread out in a warm dry place like an airing cupboard for about a week. Then put it back together and cross your fingers.

Ipod got wet wont hold a charge and wont switch to play list i accidentally left my ipod shuffle in my pocket and then it got wet in the washing machine it was in there for about 30 seconds please help


Hi,
You probably already have the answer to this, but if you send it to Apple, they may just give you a new iPod. If they even think that it got wet, though, they won't fix it. You will have to replace the battery. There are a number of places that will do that for you. I hopw that helps.
