Question about Eclipse New 180rd 4gb 4gb Portable Media Player With 1.8" Display
I am in a similar "jam" right now!
I lost my iPod in a huge Snow Bank on my Driveway.
I finally located it once the Mountain melted away, just last Eve.
I have it placed on a Furnace Register (a hot Air vent in the floor).
Put it somewhere warm & dry, that DRY Air can freely pass around it.
A Sunny open Window will and has also worked for me also!
I have had 100% success with this method as far as Radios etc. -soaked- in a Rainstorm.
I don't know at this point if my iPod will survive the soaking as some Dirt got in the connection port.
The big secret to having any real success regarding soaked micro-electronics is;
Do NOT attempt to power it up OR re-charge it, until about 1 WEEK of Time "off" & "drying out" has passed, even though it will likely be dry in 2-3 Days. Why I say this?
I spilled Water once into a(Florescent) Digital display Stereo, (which was running). I switched it off, & did my "Drying technique" but was impatient, & turned it back on after only 1 1/2 Days.
The Digital display was permanently damaged, as some Moisture remained trapped in the Dig display. (the 5's now show 6's). It works again otherwise. (the Display was not "wet" at the moment I switched it off. The Moisture got in hours later while "off").
Another alternative method if you have no hot Air vents available is to drop it in a Zip lock Baggie & approx. 3 Hand full of (dry uncooked) white Rice, or 1 lump of Charcoal.
I prefer SILICA GEL BEADS, just 1-2 Handfuls will do for Cell Phone size devices.
Leave sealed in the Bag a few Days.
Happy future use to your gadgets!
