Wet iPod Is there a way to rescue an iPod nano that has gone through the washing machine? I have had it in a bowl of uncooked rice for a couple of weeks, but nothing happens when I turn it on or connect it to the computer.

    two weeks ago, my itouch took a swim for like a second or so...
    i quickly fished it out of the water then dried it up with a towel... i opened it and checked if it still work... the photos are still there, including the videos and music... the only problem was that i cannot hear what was playing...
    a few hours later, it was back to it old self... i really thought that everything was ok till this afternoon... i cannot turn it on and the itunes in my computer cannot recognize it...

I have heard (not sure if its true) but for phones if they get wet you put it in a sock and then in a dryer it will work, maybe it will work for a ipod but i have no idea if it works. Thats just a suggestion.

My phone ids a little wet

If your question phone is a little wet, then take the battery out, wipe off all visible moisture, then put the phone in a bowl of uncooked white rice, completely covering the phone and leave it for a couple of days. The rice will draw out the moisture and usuall this works pretty good.

Ipod touchgot wet, now it freezes at apple logo

Try placing your Ipod in a large bowl of uncooked dry rice for 24-48 hrs. Then plug it in to see if this will allow you to use it again.

Ipod nano got put in the washing machine

As soon as possible, stick it in a zip lock bag full of rice. Leave it in there over night. Do not shake the bag or jostle it around. Just stick the device in and leave the bag on a counter. Hope this helps.

Drop my i-pod in water now it won't work..

Generally when an iPod gets wet it is ruined, however sometimes you can save the unit by getting a deep bowl and some dry rice. Place a nice layer or rice in the bottom of the bowl then place the iPod into that bowl cover with rice and let sit for at least twenty four hours, I recommend fourty eight though.
Hopefully this resolution will work for you. Best of luck.
I've used it once on an iPod video and once on a cell phone both worked after words. :-)

My razr2 got wet and dose not work now

Take the battery out of the phone, leave the battery cover off. Get a medium sized bowl and fill it with uncooked rice. Take your phone and bury it in the rice and leave it their for a day or two. The uncooked rice will absorb the moisture from the phone. This has worked for me in the past.

I have an Ipod Nano that went through the washer machine and now it will not turn on....any suggestions????

sorry to say most of the time when people get electronics wet the first mistake they make is trying to turn it on when it still has water or whatever in it and they fry the circuit's inside, so unfortunately looks like yours might be dead, next time anything like that gets wet dry it off for a few days in a bowl or rice and remove the battery if possible and only after your 100% sure its 100% dry then try and turn it back on, sorry there's a slim chance you can crack it open and replace the battery and it might work but its a slim possibility

you might be able to let it dry out for like a week, also try and leave it in a bowl of dry rice the rice will absorb the moisture and might save it other than that it looks pretty dead sorry

I had left it in my pocket in my clothes and didnt know and it got all wet how do i fix it

My suggestion, I learned recently, is to place the device in a bowl of uncooked rice.

The Rice will absorb any liquids from inside.
