My go gear vibe is wet

Immediately remove the battery and don't even think about turning it on until it's completely and thoroughly dry. Even then, it's still a good chance that it's dead.

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.

My Go Gear Vibe is wet and i don't know how to fix it ?

If the thing is still under warranty, you might want to send it to the factory before taking it apart so they can do it for free. If not, you could try to remove the back cover and airing it out. If that is something you aren't comfortable with, better to send it in. Getting a device submerged in water like that is a bad thing of course. If you can air it out, and ensure it is totally dry, then you could try to plug it in and recharge it. ENSURE IT IS DRY. Then attempt to see if any information was lost.

if you dried it out in rice after the fall then you might have a problem with the mother board if it was on when you dropped the device into the water than you could have fried one of the servers that help your computer to recognize the device

hope this helps you

good luck

First. Stop trying to use the unit! Having power go to the unit can and usually will short something out, so if the battery is removable, do so. It may take opening up the machine to find the battery if its built in. I'm not familiar with this one so I don't know.

Next thing I do Is open up the back of the unit allowing air to circulate and giving you access to anything that is moist. At this point, I usually try to use a hair dryer to CAREFULLY dry the interior of the machine. Do this for several minutes as it takes a while to evaporate all the water in the nooks of the machine. Since the machines is semi working, its most likely not that wet. If the machine has been doused, went through the laundry, fell in a toilet, etc, I then choose to re wet the machine my giving it a QUICK dip in rubbing alcohol. The alcohol evaporates quickly and assists in lifting the sometimes contaminated water off the machine. Again, do this once you have nothing to lose.
Go back to blow drying.. 7-10 times, if your patient, dry the machine enough, you will fix your wet item. If its a nice week, allowing the machine to dry in a open window in the sun for 2-4 days cant hurt your chances either.
Just remember, the main damage is caused by shorting out the unit by having it connected to a power supply, this includes the battery.
Unfortunately, this doesn't usually include the lcd screen. they are rather fragile and will usually need to be replaced if there is a dead area once your done.

Good luck.

Water problems

Your next step is to open it by removing the screws on the back panel and letting it air dry ( some sun will speed up the process). If the battery is removable, then I suggest removing the battery as soon as possible. Let it dry for a few days (longer if you live in a humid area). This will prevent any shorts in its circuitry. If this does not help, then it most likely shorted something out and fried a component.

Dear beckiedadd

You should have let it untouched for 2-3 days for the water droplets to get dried on the inside part of it. But since ur getting a blank screen, this clearly indicates that u have spoiled the mp3 player. Try to open up the mp3 player and clean the droplets. And finally charge.

Mp3 player stuck on hold

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.
