During a workout it got wet w/ sweat, I removed the plastic outer case to allow it to dry out. At that time nothing seemed to function. I did a "reset" and plugged it in the laptop, It did not recognize it. It let it dry overnight, It now is reconized & I can see all the music on "sonic stage". But it is still stuck on hold. No matter how many times I move the mechanisim out of hold & try to advance either a song or a group , no luck. I am currently charging it to see if that does anything different. Any ideas out there?
I guess the next stop is back to the Sony store for a fix.
I am having the exact same problem. During a workout it got wet while sweating, I removed the plastic outer case to allow it to dry out but it is still on hold and stuck there. Did anyone figure this out? Sony will exchange it for a refurbished one for $121 or repair it for $101. I only paid $90 for it. I guess I will buy on Ipod next time.

iPod home buttons fail all the time. If the button feels stuck in the down position, you no longer feel that distinct "pop" then it is a design issue and should be taken to the apple store for warranty work. If the iPod is out of warranty, then there are several shops that service home buttons. If the home button still "pops" as it should, then the issue is with moisture exposure. Sweat and wet hands while using the home button allow the moisture to seep into the home button area, eventually causing a corrosion buildup that slowly deteriorates the home buttons ability to do its simple job, after repeated exposure, it just has too much corrosion and stops working.

The first thing is to make sure not to try and turn the device on when it is wet. Give it a good dry, and try to shake out as much water as possible, after removing the batteries (if the batteries are removable). Now place it in front of a heater that has a fan, or give it a few good goes with a blow dryer, this will be more effective if you can remove the case of the player. The important thing is not to try to turn it on until it is dry, it may take a couple of days to dry properly inside. If it still doesn't work after this, it's probably dead I'm sorry.
Before you remove the DVD player cover, try turning the device off and then back on to see if the disc will come out after the machine has rebooted.
Use the opportunity while you have the outer casing off to clean the lens of your DVD player.
Never work on an electrical device that's still plugged in.
Opening a DVD player may negate the warranty. Read yours carefully before you proceed.
Follow these steps to remove it
Unplug the DVD player and take the outer casing of the DVD player off. This entails either taking out two or three screws or simply sliding one of the pieces of plastic in either direction.
Locate the disc loader cover. The disc loader cover is located where the extending DVD tray finally comes to rest within the DVD player. It’s the part that holds the DVD loader in place.
Bend the two tabs outward that hold the loader in place. This is a delicate procedure because you don’t want to hurt the device. The tabs are relatively easy to break since they're plastic in most cases.
Slide the disc tray out. If your disc got stuck before it was read, it's probably still on this tray. If so, your problem is solved. However, if the disc was fully set and loaded, the job isn’t quite finished yet.
Move the small mechanical arm that holds the disc in place over so that the disc and the reader are both exposed. Some DVD players will not have anything holding the disc in place. Instead, these devices use a system not unlike that of a common DVD case. The DVD will be locked in place in the center.
Carefully lift the disc up and out of its loaded position in the DVD player. This may entail sliding the disc reading mechanism over slightly. This won't hurt the device as long as you’re careful. You should be able to access and remove the disc.
im pretty sure if you were to use a q-tip and a bit of rubbing alcohol and just wet the tip then clean out the port it might work just let it dry out for a little bit after you do it by all means dont use water.
Based on your detailed post, I think it's toast. Liquid + electronics + power (repeatedly and attempting to charge it too in this case) usually = toast. Sorry, you can try to let it dry out (without attempting to charge or power on in a dry environment) for an extended period (a week or so in this case) and then try to charge and power it on again, but it's recommended to do this (and remove the battery when possible) as soon as the liquid contamination is realized.
Whenever I workout, I sweat from head to toe, and have the same issue, track changing on their own, volume adjusts to minimum by its self. Once this occurs, you can't "re-adjust" the volume, (until they dry out). Other controls don't seem to work either, (pause, forward / reverse tracks). Bottom line, if you workout, if you are like 99% of humans, you will sweat, and if you do, the same thing will happen. I am on my 2nd pair, about to be on my 3rd. Sadly, Motorola was way off when they said these were sweat and water resistant!
