Remove screws, pull apart, let air dry or try drying with hair dryer. don't recommend pulling screen apart. There is several layers of the screen. It is hard to remember what order the screen layers go. But still take apart for better drying.

I washed my daughter's ipod shuffle which was in her jeans pocket


These are never easy situations to experience, but I can only advise you to disconnect the iPod Shuffle for the computer, make sure it is turned to "Off" mode and allow it to sit in a place where there is sunlight or heat for at least 3-4 days untouched.

I have heard this process being done by a few folks for different iPod/iPhone devices, so hopefully this will work for you.

This is however, the only suggestion in such cases where an electronic device like your iPod shuffle has been subjected to moisture or water.

If this still does not help, you will more than likely have to take the iPod Shuffle in for service at an Apple-authorized iPod repair center or unfortunately replace it with a new iPod.

I hope this helps and you are able to get your iPod back to functionality again.

Regards,

-Terry

The black light in my ipod doesn't work after it got wet?


ok so thats what exactly what happened to me same i pod ... everything except for the circles what u need to do is bring it to the apple store and tell them what happened and the light might have eather burned out, the water got into it and shorted out, or it got disconnected when it was bouncing arround in the washer and/or dryer. so they should be able to fix it and get out the spots from cleaning it when they take it appart. I Hope this helped!

The screen won't light up on my ipod, but


Unfortunately there is no solution since the water has messed up the LCD. Have you tried going to settings and check if the back light option is on?

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,

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.

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.

Went through the wash !


First of all, do not try to power it on, plug it in, or press any buttons. I would flip the hold swith on top so you see orange so none of that happens. You need to be sure that all of it is dry first. However, realize that something probably bumped it enough to turn it on in the wash too, which could have zapped it pretty well. I would let it sit to dry for at least a week. I know it sounds terrible, but you need to be absolutely sure that it is dry. One tiny drop can ruin a whole ipod, if it is not already broken. There should be edges that are barely noticeable, but if you can pry them open with something really thin, without warping the plastic, you could get it open to dry. Just be very careful not to touch anything inside, because oils on your skin can be just as harmful as water. Good luck, and let me know what happens.

8 GB Ipod Nano went dead and now won't charge


does it work on the charger? if not, then contact apple or your dealer for more assistance or repairs.

If it works on the charger, plays music and so on, your battery is probably dead and you need a new one.

New Nano Video Ipod


There is a way to open it up but it's not easy. You need an ipod openening tool or other very thin but sturdy object (guitar picks work well also). You slide the pick or tool in between where the case front and back meet and twist to open it up. you will have to do this all along one side. When you get it opened up enough it wil just pop open. You might be able to find an ipod repair shop in your area that would open it for you for no charge. Putting it back together is easy, just snap the front and back together again.
