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.

My dads Jazzy 600 got wet and now wont do anything. no lights at all. what can I do- he needs it daily and we are on fixed income?


If medicare paid for Dad's chair then contact Roadrunner Mobility @ 1-800-467-2668 or Repair Xpress @ 1-877-581-3733. If Medicare didn't pay for Dad's chair then the cost of a refurbed joystick is still very high about $700 and if the joystick got wet then he'll need a new or refurbed one. Sorry Hope this helps

I-pod shuffle got wet and now wont switch on or charge


If ever you get any electrics wet,turn it off immediately and don't turn it back on. Try your best to take it apart as much as possible, putting the screws in a safe place like a zip lock or sealy bag, and taping them to the item so they don't end up in a safe place that you can never remember. Put all of the bits layed out on something like a towel in a dry, warm place. Airing cupboard is a good one. Leave them alone for at least a week. If when you come back to it there's any evidence of water at all, leave it for longer. When it's bone dry, put it back together with your fingers crossed. I've managed to do this a number of times and have saved 3 laptops, 2 iPods, a desktop pc, many remotes, 2 diskmans...the list goes on.

If you've got it wet and you try to turn it on when there's any moisture inside, you're very likely to short something normally rendering your item useless. Some parts may still work, such as LED's etc butthat's just an area that probably didn't get wet. If when you open the item there's any smell of electrical burning, or black residue then there's been a short.

Senseo machine has started producing very weak coffee


I don't know if you've tried this, but it works like gangbusters for me. I use non-senseo pods with the 2-pod holder, and they're too big for the 1-pod holder but not quite big enough for the 2-pod one.

I would frequently end up with a lousy, weak cup of coffee, and after a little investigation I deduced that water was flowing into the pod holder and AROUND the pod, without going THROUGH the pod directly. The name-brand senseo pods fit perfectly, and always produce a strong cup, even if I don't like their coffee, and it's because there's such a tight seal between where water flows in and where it flows out.

Simple solution: Put your pod in with the flat part facing up, and the bulgy part facing down. Press it down hard into the 2-cup holder. Run a little HOT tap water, and lightly wet the surface of the pod--not so much water that the pod starts floating in the holder, but enough to get it soggy. Then make your cup of coffee. The water will flow through the pod first, and kind of like siphoning gas through a hose, once it's started going through the pod it won't stop. Instant awesome cup.

Zune


I found the solution. what you do is you plug your zune into your usb port and your zune home page will come up automatically. as soon as your computer reads it look in the top right corner and go to settings. then go to device. finally press erase all content.

when it is done your zune should be empty but it will scroll and work once more...im not sure what is wrong but i had this same problem with my i pod and this same solution fixed that problem also.
ZUNES ARE MUCH BETTER THAN I PODS, stay zune and proud.

My PS2 wont play a dvd


If your PS2 continues to come up with a error message stating unable to read disc. Your optical lens is dirty!
You need to get your hands dirty or pay someone to do it! The reason this is happening is because the lens has an abundance of dirt on the lens and you cannot get it clean. Try both the wet and dry system for cleaning, if that does not work. Take it apart yourself, pay someone to do it, or get a new one. It is easier to take it apart yourself. You have to go step by step and be careful when doing so! Afterdawn.com has a link that tells you step by step how to take it apart and fix your problem. It works I did it my ps2 works like a charm.
