Once water falls on an mp3 player, the first step is to remove the screws behind and let the components dry.especially the battery.This avoids any shorting in the circuitry.
If this does not help then the only reason for the malfunction is one of the components has been fried dude to being shorted.
Contact your vendor if the warrenty still exists.Else you might have to repair the entire player.
Do not continue using the player if the problem continues for now.
hope this works out.thanks for contactin us.Please do rate fixya if the problem is solved.

What can i do when water is inside my mp3 player, then i lost it for a month. when i found it , i immidiaetly plugged it into my computer, it started working. i let it charge. when i took it out, it...

Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this post. Thank you for choosing FixYa to assist you with your problem. Your MP3 Player has been exposed to water, then it gets lost, you find it and immediately plug it into your computer for it to charge and start working again, then it shuts off after you unplug it from the PC. I don't know if you know this or ever read it in user manuals, but they tell you not to expose your electronic device to liquid substances. This can cause product failure as well as harm to yourself or others. I'm surprised it's still working when you plugged it into the computer. I had a flash drive that went through the same experience as your MP3 player: got lost and was exposed to rainwater, then was found later and started to work again once it was plugged into the computer. Later on though, the computer failed to recognize it and it eventually stopped working. I'm thinking the situation with your MP3 player is that the battery or a driver controlling battery functioning, is defective due to water exposure. The driver that controls the PC launch up, may not have been exposed to it as much. You could try opening your MP3 player (if it can be opened) and try to drain all the water out of it, then put it back together and try to turn it on again. If that doesn't work, plug your device into the computer and go to the device manager on your PC. If your computer recognizes the device, go to its properties and click the driver tab. Click "Update Driver" to see if a driver update is needed. If the driver is up-to-date, try uninstalling the driver, then reinstalling it again. If your device is not working properly after this. Then the battery, driver or other electronic circuitry inside of your MP3 player is defective. You can try to replace the battery, if it can be, to see if that makes the difference, but I'm pretty sure your MP3 player is defective now. I'm sorry for the inconvenience, but thanks for choosing FixYa to assist you with your problem. Have a good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this solution post.

1991 Jeep Cherokee Limited starts, runs a few minutes then dies

Running for five minutes sounds like something other than a security system problem (usually shuts off much earlier) but if that has been compromised it needs to be put back together or the trigger wire from the drivers door lock needs to be grounded.
I'd look to the throttle position sensor, map sensor, crank position sensor or the ballast resistor on the drivers fender. You need to do tests on those items as all influence the fuel management system after warm up. Test when it is cold and after it shuts off so you don't mistake a part malfunction only when hot. Hands on testing is the ONLY way to determine accurately exactly what is happening there. Anything else is an educated guess!!!
