My daughter's Zune went through the washing machine and dryer in May 2008. I checked the internet & it looked pretty bleak. I couId see water inside the screen area & it would not turn on at all. I decided to just leave it sitting on the counter for awhile instead of just throwing it away. Three weeks later I tried to turn it on & got a low battery display. We plugged it in, charged it and it has been working ever since (it is now August 2008).

Doubtful if the battery was inside it. If it runs off AA / AAA batteries try replacing the battery once it dries out. Try setting the unit outside in the heat for about a day. Even a little water inside it will be bad.

My Sony player went thru the wash and was in overalls pocket for 3 days b4 I discovered it. Spray contact cleaner thru the headphone socket until it ran out of the unit. Left it to dry out for a few hours but still no luck. A friend advised me to puff the fumes of nail polish remover into the unit( DO NOT POUR THE LIQUID INTO YOUR PLAYER!!) Presto it fired up and is now charging and playing fine. The contact cleaner (iso alcohol) will help remove and corrosion on the pcb and contacts inside the player.

If it went through the wash, open everything you can and let it dry out for AT LEAST ONE WEEK. Water can get into a lot of areas that are hard to dry out. Since you already tried to turn it on, it might be destroyed.

MP3 player went through washing machine


hi thanks for using fixya!

The first thing you should do is not to turn the power on of the player, once it was soaked or wet very hardly, you must let it dry first before turning the power on, to avoid short circuit. In your case, we are not sure if its going to work again, but let it dry properly, but if its too late, and won't work again, maybe it is time to buy a new one, and start to be more careful! good luck!

Please do not forget to rate me positively! thanks!

My clothe come out very wet at the end of the wash cycle


If the pump is clogged and can't release all the water it won't go into final high spin. Remove lower cover and locate coin catch and unscrew it. Water will come out, so be ready. If it's full of stuff, this is probably the problem.

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.

Will my MP3 Player still work?


if you have not tried to use it then yes it will BUT you must let it dry out completely before you press any buttons, i suggest putting it on top of a radiator that is not boiling hot, or somewhere very warm for about a week, its not getting wet that is the problem, it is pressing buttons while its wet, creating a short circuit. however if you have pressed a button this does not mean it will never work again, but leave it for as lomg as possible to dry out, there are no moving parts inside an Mp3 player so you should be ok, but bear in mind if you have pressed a button while it was wet you may have caused a short circuit, but may not have. time will tell.

Wash and dry ipod 3rd gen


Other people have dried out their mp3 players and got it to work sporadically, but the water damage is irreversible. Call Apple and tell them that it just won't work - don't give them the details of how it got there.
