Question about SanDisk SDMX1 MP3 Player
The first time i put my mp3 through the laundry I got it working perfectly by letting it dry out, the second time it was at a friends house and it doesn't work any more. When you turn it on the screen is just blank and it doesn't do anything. I figured if i hooked it up to my computer it might work but nothing happened at all, the computer didn't even notice i plugged it in. I let it set for like an hour and it recognized it but the f drive didn't come up. I let it set for another hour or so and a window came up with text saying something along the lines of it was a high speed and the usb connection was not. It also said at the top self repair or something, can my mp3 repair itself or is it broken forever??
Well you are going to need another motherboard. you may have let it dry over, but it still corrodes inside. you have no idea how much damage the water caused, even after drying out. you are going to have to send it in to see how much it is going to cost you. or sell it and buy a new one. thanks, connie

Impurities in the soda (sugars, salt, etc...) can mess up both the electronics and the controls in an electronic device. Getting the impurities out of the unit is the problem. One solution I have used successfully with my cellphone (contaminated by sweat):
Remove the battery if possible (definitely turn the unit off!). Soak the unit in CLEAN (no soap or other additives), warm (not hot) water, swishing it around gently from time to time, for a couple of hours. If the water turns at all cloudy, replace it with clean water. Then let the unit dry completely before turning it back on. This may take several days, putting the unit in front of a dry air source such as a fan, shaking the unit gently from time to time (to move any water pockets around so they dry faster).
It worked on my phone, but my phone has no disk drive. If it's not working anyway, this may be worth a try. Good luck!
