Re: Washer

My moron sister dropped her Ipod in the bathtub one day and by purely wishful thinking after spending so much money on it, my mom tried charging the Ipod and it worked. I also suggested this to a friend who dropped hers in the toilet and it worked, but she had already bought one off of Ebay like frit said to. I don't know how well this will work if it was in the entire washing machine cycle. Hope this helps..!

Re: 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

My ipod got WET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Try this. Go to a Craft store (Michaels, Crafts Etc. and by some flower drying crystals. (Brand name Silica Gel probably less than $5.00) Drop your iPod in the crystals and leave it overnight. The silica gel should be in a air tight container (Zip loc bar or cookie tin). This is the same stuff that you find packed in electronic and can sometime help recover damp electronics. (As long as you haven't actually shorted it out)

Ipod nano went thru washer, now won't work

I did the exact same thing to my iPod nano 3rd gen. I discovered it by the noise it made in the dryer when it fell out of the pocket. Clack! Clack! It seemed dead, but it made a full recovery. What I did was put it on the dashboard of my car for a couple of sunny days to dry out, recharged it, and it was fine. If you have particularly hard water, maybe you'd want to try dipping it in some distilled water just to get rid of any mineral residue before drying it out. I'm impressed with how tough these dudes are. Good luck.
