Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player
Does it pay to fix it
First how long ago did it get wet?
If it's recent put it inside a plastic bag with uncooked white rice and try and get it dried out.
the rice will assist in this process.
Next, if the water just seeped into it chances are it can be saved, but no guarantees.
If you can open the ipod and remove the battery before the drying process that would be good.
once your ipod has been in the bag of rice for a few days, replace the old battery with a new one
and see if she fires up.
if your ipod fell in the toilet and got soaked for a few minutes it could have damaged the hard drive.
but you won;t know until u try and put a new battery in it.
The Lithium Polymer batteries have circuit board wrapped within the battery, often when it hits water it fries quickly and doesn't send anymore charge to the ipod. I have fixed a few like this.
If this helps, please leave a vote at fixya

Ipon the ipods case up. then Put the ipod in a zip lock bag full of
uncooked raw white rice. seal the bag and leave it in there for 2 days.
rice absorbs water. it should dry it up.
dont try to plug the ipod in or it will fry the circuit and you will destroy it.
If you need to know how to open an ipod case go to my website.
