I s'pose the Zune is nice & clean now ;-)

.. I take it the device no longer works, right? If so, simplest & most expensive thing to do is to toss it & get another.
.. Since you voided the warranty by getting it wet, then you could also try opening the case and letting it dry out. This probably will NOT work since the drive is physical and that alone will be water-logged.
.. Check out this site for info on how to open your 30gig Zune. Read it first before attempting!!!

It was washed in my washer


You might as well buy a new one, water damage is not something you can just "fix".

Washing machine safe


Good job - you were lucky. The casing on this one is water-resistant. If water had touched to electronics - bye-bye!

IPod shuffle got wet in the washing machine


If you've been trying to turn it on, then it's unlikely to work again. If anything like that happens again, "DON'T TURN IT ON". Take the item apart carefully keeping the screws together and leave the parts spread out in a warm dry place like an airing cupboard for about a week. Then put it back together and cross your fingers.

Put Zune in pocket, it comes on


Well if you set the lock slider on the top of the player to lock this will disable the player from turning on in your pocket.

Zune warranty


Hello btexpresss,

Sorry to hear about your Zune. Unfortuantely, liquid damage is not covered by the manufacturer's limited warranty or Best Buy's™ Performance Service Plan. The unit may still be repairable but those repairs are not going to be covered by the service plan.

Best Regards,
Ken

30 gig zune (white)


yes, it can be fixed. rapidrepair.com offers replacement screens for 89.99 and will even replace it themselves if you decide to send it in to them. at this point in time, you might be better off buying a new zune 30 (considering i got a brown one for my sister for about 60 off amazon over Christmas) or just saving up for an 80.

It got washed in my pants by accident


Don't turn it on right away. Water alone does not break electronics. If the player was off when it got washed and it hasn't been turned on since it is probably still OK. If you turn it on when the unit is dry (inside), it will be OK. But. If you tried it right away, and there was water in it when you turned it on it's game over. The unit will probably short out and never work again. The question is how do you know when it is dry inside?
