Push center and menu buttons as you keep it connected to the computer charger. That will hard reset the ipod. If it doesn't respond to the hard reset it is more likely you have motherboard issue. You can try to open it and clean the corroded parts on the logic board. If that doesn't help, there are parts available on ebay, there is a ipod repair guide that will show you how to open your ipod replace the logic board.

Ya it's done.. Ipods are not water proof to any extent of the imagination. Unfortunately it looks like you'll have to get a new one. THe repair cost on that will exceed the cost of replacement since you'll have to pay for labour. Also water damage is not covered under the apple warranty.

How to unlock and ipod touch?


Are You Serious ??
Slide the switch to the unlock position.
OR
BAD SWITCH ??
get a paperclip or small ??

My stereo jack went bad because the TouchMP is a delicate machine.
I had to dismantle it and use hot glue to restore function.
Its easy to ruin so be careful.

and reset the device by sticking the wire
into the small hole under the switch.
If you are sensitive you can actually feel the switch click as it makes and breaks.

I left my ipod shuffle in my washing machine.Now I cant get it to work,or to charge it!


If it actually went through a wash cycle I don't think that theres much hope of it working again.

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.

Wash and dry ipod 3rd gen


Other people have dried out their mp3 players and got it to work sporadically, but the water damage is irreversible. Call Apple and tell them that it just won't work - don't give them the details of how it got there.

Doesn't work at all


there isn't much you can do at that point unless you can narrow down what part is failing. most likely, the mother board is shorted somewhere. there are companies that do repair them but you might be better off getting a new one.

I think you fried it. put it under a lamp for a while (not too close to the lamp) to try and dry it out. if that doesnt work, something shorted out inside, and you can repair it or get a nice shiny new one
