    Most electronic devices have a hard time surviving a run through the washing machine. I would recommend that you check what warranty you got when purchasing your iPod. Worst case scenario is that you risk damaging your computer by connecting a malfunctioning device to it. However, that is not very likely, but neither is it very likely that your iPod is going to come back to life. Sorry. This has happened to me too, it has made me check twice before shutting the door of the laundry machine...

I dropped my in the toilet and it was working fine until about 20 minutes later the screen just went completly white. What do I do?


Hi Lizzy,
There is probably some water still in your ipod causing your problem.
Firstly, switch your ipod off. This can help prevent any more damage being caused.
Then, leave your ipod in a warm dry place, an airing cupboard or near a radiator (not on top!) for 6-8 hours.
After 6-8 hours try turning your ipod on to see if it is working again.
If it still isn't working turn your ipod off again.
Fill a small bowl with rice and submerge your ipod completely in it over night. It sounds a bit strange, but the rice draws out any of the remaining moisture in the ipod.
In the morning take the ipod out and get the rice out of anywhere it may have got stuck and try again.
Regards, sjstore2

Ipod screen went black, and now i cant turn it on


Hold the top button and the bottom button at the same time. My 8G iPod Touch does that all the time. It just means it's completely dead. If you just got it it synced with iTunes, it will say that it needs iTunes again. It should be fine though. Let it charge over night then. That's what I did. Mine was fine the next day.

My iPod touch went all white then after I reset it the screen just went black and wont turn on now. Please help me!


  1. Back up your iPod Touch's data to your computer before the restore to prevent losing data. You'll need to reinstall it after the restore process.
  2. Connect to the internet and install the latest version of iTunes from the Apple website.
  3. Make sure your iPod Touch is connected to your computer.
  4. Pick "iPod Touch" in the Source pane of the iTunes program.
  5. Click on the Summary tab.
  6. Choose "Check for Update."
  7. Select "Restore" and follow the instructions to finish restoring your iPod Touch.
  8. Complete an Advanced Restore
  9. If following the steps in the previous section did not work, follow these steps to perform an advanced restore. Turn off the power on the iPod Touch.
  10. Plug the iPod Touch into your computer.
  11. Power on the iPod Touch.
  12. Press the "Home" and "Sleep/Wake" buttons together for 5 seconds until the Apple logo appears.
  13. Release the "Sleep/Wake" button but continue holding down the "Home" button. The iPod Touch should reboot, and iTunes will notice the iPod Touch in recovery mode.
  14. Return to the above section and follow those steps to restore your iPod 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,

My ipod nano chromatic ha water damage from the washer


Sometimes if you leave it sit for several days or so it will dry out completely and start to work again. I don't recommend charging it or plugging it in for several days or so as if there is still water in it, it may fry some of the chips. It may be beyond repair though.

Ipod won't turn on


Try to turn on your ipod by holding the center button and the menu button both at the same time for about 6-10 seconds. Sometimes the hard drive on the ipod likes to freeze and just needs to be reset.

Washer


sorry, but you're probably screwed. Once wet, the connections inside start to corrode and then it's junk. Sell it on E-Bay as broken/part/repair. Be honest and let people know that it got wet. The case and a few parts may still be usable. Then take the money you get and buy a used working one off e-bay. you can usually get nanos in good used condition for $80 to $100
