Re: Washed up

Well what i try is disassamble as much as possible, then using a hair drier dyry it, not too hot, you do not want to melt anything. depending on how fay you can take it apart will depend on the drying time. many electroncs will need to be replaced after being dropped into water. you got lucky it's not salt water. after drying it, let it sit for a day or so. DO NOT plugg in power because if there is any water left inside it will short out the electronics damageing the unit. good luck

I washed my sansa fuze in the washing machen and now it wont work! what do i do?

take it apart VERY CAREFULLY. then take a q-tip, and get any loose moisture gathered behind the screen, or any where. then let it air dry, or put it under a hairdryer. if it still doesn't work after that, my brother did a simillar thing...and he washed it a second time in DISTILLED water, which got rid of the mineral deposits from the water, then he did what i stated above. hope it works!

Mp3 got washed and dried is it a lost cause?

Its really depends, What was it washed in dropped in toylet? washer? also detergent. mineral/water content. If it still works you might have gotten lucky, if it was washed dried and spun, your more than likely going to have issues. If its working for now, i would say make sure if gets plenty of dry out time, but may have started some parts inside build up corosion.

My walkman is dead

shops don't give warranty on mp3 players more than 2yrs max. and even if it still were in warranty, the warranty would've been void when the player got washed and tumble-dried.

try removing the batteries, letting it dry for a few days and using new batteries afterwards. if this doesn't work, the mp3-player is done for...

Washed mp3 player

Try washing it in clean water, then let it dry in the warm sun for several days.
Then see if it works.
If not then it is dead.

You have to try in powering it up.

Unfortunately, when such kind ofelectronics are washed, the only solution i to open it immediately, clean all the water and moisture residues, dried it, and then charge the battery again and test it.

When time passes (say 2-3 months) after being washed, there is corrosion and moisture in the electronic components and internal connecttions, and the device is permanently damaged.

My sansa disc MP3 player is not turning on at all I have connected to my computer and it still does not turn on I have used new batteries but nothing seems to work can you please halp me. My sansa mp3...

Washed? Water damage is irreversible - that player needs to be replaced. Call Sansa and say your player won't turn on - don't mention water. See what they say.

It got washed in my pants by accident

Don't turn it on right away. Water alone does not break electronics. If the player was off when it got washed and it hasn't been turned on since it is probably still OK. If you turn it on when the unit is dry (inside), it will be OK. But. If you tried it right away, and there was water in it when you turned it on it's game over. The unit will probably short out and never work again. The question is how do you know when it is dry inside?
