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.

Re: wet iPod

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.

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.

Hurry fast after you read this. Please go get a bowl. Now put some uncooked rice on the bottom of the bowl. Put the mp3 in th bowl. now cover with some more rice. leave over night. The rice will absorb the water . THis should save the device.

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. :-)

Dropped ipod touch in water

don't try and turn it on until your 100% sure that its dry and i mean DRY, put it in a bowl of uncooked rice for a day or so the rice will help absorb the moisture and hopefully save your ipod

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

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

The Rice will absorb any liquids from inside.

Ipon the ipods case up. then Put the ipod in a zip lock bag full of uncooked raw white rice. seal the bag and leave it in there for 2 days. rice absorbs water. it should dry it up.
dont try to plug the ipod in or it will fry the circuit and you will destroy it.

Husband got Christmas ipod Classic wet

Hi what seemed to happen here is your HDD drive got wet and crashed. Yes take it back. Next time this happens the second it gets wet put it in a bowl of white rice. The rice absorbs the liquid and all better. But this time you can't do it. But yes take it back.
