Remove all residue from the water on both sides of the logic board. Are the battery contacts corrored? If so, you're battery may be broken as well. You can use a multimeter to check the battery, at 3.7V the iPod should turn on, if it doesn't the logic board is broken. There are specialized online tutorials with iPod Repair instructions that will guide you through the steps of taking you iPod apart, otherwise you'll have to send it to any third party iPod repair service and they'll do it for you.

Bose SoundDock got wet


No! the Bose unit would need to be serviced by them, there are no authorized technicians outside of the factory, plus they have the needed parts.

Using Bluetooth Technology to Connect Laptop and Cell Phone


Many of you get your mobile phone wet by one way or another. You worry as you mistakenly drop your mobile phone in water. It can also get wet if you are out in a heavy rain. However, there is no need to panic. It is possible to save your wet mobile phone by quickly repairing it. In order to save your mobile phone from water damage, you can consider these easy and simple solutions:<br /> <b>Act rapidly : </b><br /> The first thing you have to do in order to save your wet mobile phone is to act rapidly. Quickly remove all the detachable parts as well as covers possible such as the back cover, battery, the SIM card, memory card etc. Next, take a piece of cloth or a tissue paper to wipe the excess water you are able to notice within the mobile phone. Make sure that you dry it completely. If you don' t do this, the water inside the mobile phone will begin to evaporate and gather in places which will be difficult to reach.<br /> This will save your wet mobile phone and it will start working if it was under water for just a little while.<br /> <b>Using a hairdryer : </b><br /> Take a hairdryer and begin drying the mobile phone while giving more consideration to the place where the battery is located. The battery housing usually consists of tiny holes to let in air (so giving more space for water) inside the mobile phone.<br /> Make sure that you are not holding the hairdryer very near to the mobile phone. Keeping it too close to the mobile phone may harm the electrical mechanism of the mobile phone. Keep on drying the mobile phone from a safe distance for about twenty to thirty minutes.<br /> If solution number 1 and solution number 2 don't work, try solution number 3. <br /> <b>Drying for a long time: </b><br /> Take off the covers as well as battery from the mobile phone. Put the phone in a dry as well as warm place to let the water inside the phone evaporate gradually from the little holes in the mobile phone.

Not yet friend. You must use the hairdryer or such device without heat to dry the water traces inside. And also keep them in the sun for some time after hairdryer treatment. A modicum of water can burn off electronics and one should never leave anything to luck. Dry them up completely before plugging them somewhere.

My 4 GB Nano was washed and dried, And will not turn on at all.


Well, you need to take the face cover off and make sure all the internal wires are still connected. If they are make sure they are dry and let it air out with the cover off. If it still doesnt work, then you have a broken ipod and you will have to send it to the factory and they will fix it for a small cost

Samsung G600 - phone asks for sim card but doesnt work when inser


when phones get wet they start to rust from the inside, unfourtunaly this is a long prosses and can take a few months but usually if the phone has got very wet they will not work propley again. they may work temperally but eventually it will probably be completly usless. in future if u wet a phone try drying it immediatly with a hairdryer, inside the battery bit too, this may help the water inside the phone not to cause rusting. sorry about your phone.

V3 got wet


sorry to say this but a wet phone is ruined. You will have to take it to a tech at your phone server. They will either repair it or you will have to get another one. Water and phones do not go together at all. Sux.
