You can also take the battery out and put in a ziplock bag of rice. the rice will absorb all the moisterout of the device. I have used this technic on my cell phone twice and both times it work flawlessly thanks for using fixya!

If you can remove or disconnect the battery and let your ipod dry inside an air conditioned room for a week then if it will work you are lucky enough.

Once it is wet water will cause somewhat of a short circuit but if you were able to remove the power from the gadget sooner you might be able to save it. Good luck!

Ipod fell in water


Open the iPod classic and clean and dry it out as much as you can. Here's a guide on how to disassemble an iPod classic. Maybe a tech savy friend can do it for you. If you want to pay to have a service do it for you there are third party iPod Repair Services.

My ipod is not connecting on Bose docking station.


Some of the older docking stations don't recognize the next gen iPods.
Refer to your user manual to see what iPods are compatible with your system.

Fell in water


Purchase and eyeglass repair kit and get ready to do minor repair. The device is not completely dry on the inside. Water gets trapped and wont dry unless you open it up. I know you probably don't want to take it apart, but if you don't the water is going to destroy it anyway. Find the tiny screws that hold the case together and gently remove them. Use a piece of paper to make reminders exactly what goes where and work on a tabletop so you lose nothing. Only take it apart until you see the moisture. Use a blow dryer on the lowest setting (no heat) and evaporate as much liquid as possible. Leave it open for a couple days and be sure there is no moisture left. Avoid touching anything with your bare hands because oils from your skin are not good for electrical components. Now, as long as nothing shorted out, you should be able to reassemble the device, charge it overnight and resume using it. Touchy work, but worth saving. P.S. don't work around carpet as static discharge isn't good for these components either. Good Luck!!!

IPod Troubles


You could try removing the hdd
But you would have to build a compatible cord to set the hdd up with your ide pc

I have no idea how, but i know that it will work theoretically

Unless your ipods hdd is damaged by water, which could be liekly.
Thanks

The bottom part of my ipod is bent


so basicly the bottom connector is broke. possibly the whole mainboard would need to be replaced or simply the connector replaced

Some tech might replace the parts for 40-60usd. I cant say for sure since I dont know how bad it is.

Repair ipod


If the iPod was on, and fell in the pool, then probably not. If it wasn't I would let it dry out, use a hairdryer and blow the water out through the cracks (and headphone and docking jack) and let it sit for a few days. Try to use it then. Since the warranty doesn't cover it, i'm sorry if it won't work.
