Question about Apple iPod nano

2 Answers

IPod I have an old iPod mini that was working great until I spilled some tea on it. I thought it was dead but after a couple of days I tried it and was able to boot it up. I get the menu screen but the wheel control doesn't work beyond booting up. Seems like it is fixable if it boots. This is a 4GM silver Mini, Model A1051, not a nano. Your form wouldn't accept the real description??????

First My Ipod Was Dead For A Couple Days Than My Dad Went To Buy Me A Charger & I Put It On There & Its Didnt Work So I Keep It On The Charger For Three Days & Than It Still Didnt Come On So For Like A...

What type of ipod and how old is the battery ?

iPods have revolutionized the way we think about portable music and video players. Occasionally, however, your iPod may freeze and no longer turn on or off.
Luckily, there is a simple fix for this predicament.
Toggle the lock switch on and off several times, leaving it on the off position.
Hold the "Menu" and "Select" buttons at the same time until the Apple logo appears on your iPod's screen.

Repeat steps 1 and 2 if necessary, until the problem is corrected.

iPod Touch

Ensure the iPod will not turn on or off by holding the power switch down for at least 10 seconds.


Hold the "Power" button and the "Menu" button simultaneously until the iPod powers off.


Hold the "Power" button until the Apple logo appears on your iPod.

Chemical odor...



1. CharcoalCharcoal is on top of my list as it is one of the best absorbent agents that can absorb and soak up the bad odour. Charcoal is also widely used as water filters and in most odour removing commercial products. You can put a medium-sized chunk of charcoal inside your smelly refrigerator for instance, and leave it there for a couple of days. You will notice that it can effectively remove the bad smell.
2. Baking SodaBaking soda is also a good absorbent. Put a generous amount of baking soda in an uncovered container (the size of the container depends on the size of the confined area) and leave it for several days. Remove the baking soda and replace it with new one and leave it for a couple of days. Continue replacing the baking soda until it has cleared the bad smell.
3. Lemon or Lime PeelJust put some lemon or lime peels into an uncovered container and leave them inside the confined area for a couple of days. The citrus smell will naturally replace the bad smell.
4. Pandan Leaf (also known as Pandanus or Screwpine)It is easy to get pandan leaf in tropical countries as it is widely used in Southeast Asian cooking to add aroma to dishes. Its pleasant aroma also acts as natural air freshener. Just take a few strips of the pandan leaves and tie them into knots. Place the leaves inside the confined space and leave them until the leaves withered or dried up. Replace the leaves regularly until the smell goes away.
5. Vanilla Essence Pour several drops of vanilla essence on a couple of cotton wools. Toss the cotton wools inside the confined space such as your wardrobe. Leave them for several days and you will notice that the area smells nice.
6. Mint Extract If you favor neither the smell of citrus nor vanilla, you can perhaps use mint extract instead. Pour several drops of mint extract on a couple of cotton wools. Toss the cotton wools inside the confined space and leave them for a couple of days.
7. Fresh Ground CoffeeGround coffee has a nice, crisp natural aroma. Just put about a cup of ground coffee in a flat, uncovered container. Place the container inside the confined space for several days. If the bad smell is extremely horrible, put more ground coffee. The area will smell of fresh coffee for many days.
8. Tea BagsIf you don't like coffee, you can use tea bags instead. Just place 2-3 tea bags inside the confined space. The tealeaves in the bags will not only absorb the bad smell but also will release the natural aroma of tea.
9. Orange and ClovesGet an orange and poke it with sharp objects like needle or fork to form small holes. Place each of the cloves inside these small holes until most of the orange surfaces are covered. It may look like a hedgehog with the cloves jutting out of the orange fruit. Leave it in the confined area for a couple of days. The area will smell nice with the said combinations.
10. Old Newspaper and Slices of BreadOld newspaper and slices of bread also work wonders in absorbing the bad odours particularly inside the refrigerator. Just place some crumpled old newspaper and two slices of bread (uncovered) inside your refrigerator and leave them for two days. Replace them (especially the bread) regularly until the bad smell is removed.

You can also use the combination of any of the above tips together, to effectively remove bad smell. Try those tips and you will say goodbye to bad smells forever.

Please don't forget to rate the solution.

I pour tea on top of my hi-fi and the standby light lit green then it went dead

you know electronic devices are usually affected by liquid substance when they are at work.At the moment the tea poured on the system,should you have switched it off immediately,the problem would have been a minor one.However, since you left the system on, I think the system panel has been greatly affected and needs repair.You will need to take it for repairs, but you could try loosing the panel and drying it with a heater or by sun, then fix it back in place to see if it works,ok

Ipod nano green Help!!!


Try going to repair your iPod at apple.
I don't think they will accept it because it is a old version.
You can try. Or maybe your iPod hated you and wanted to die at the next day the warranty expires. (little joke there haha ^_^)

Hope this helps!
