H100 Player got wet- Please help!!

My daughter apparently dropped it in water- I dried it out overnight and now I can get it to slowly boot up ( takes long time) but then I get and error message : FAT error plz connect UMS device format. Then screen sitches to : HDD. Then a screen with a little picture of the Mp3 player in the upper left corner and 3 pictures underneath. One of set of headphones, one of a little box and one of a piece of paper??? They all have arrows after them and if I press one I get another set of little pictures. One of a person with headphones on, one of a CD, one of a music note and one of a square. If I press these nothing really happens. Is this possible to fix?? I am just devistated!!

You can remove the back cover by removing the little rubber feet (2) on the backside, near the top. Then remove the 2 tiny phillips-head screws. Then slide the cover towards the head-phone jack. You can then remove the battery. This will reset the player and my help your problem.

Hi santhosam123

Chances are its toast, but it is worth a try...sometimes it works

If you ever find that you have to deal with a wet device, don\'t just abandon it.
Instead, try the following method to repair the water damage:

Take it apart as much as you can. Take out the battery, the memory card and whatever else can be easily disassembled. (Just make sure you can put it back together.)
Store the parts in an air-tight container covered with either dry rice, silica gel packets or kitty litter. These will absorb the moisture from your electronics device, leaving it water-free.
If no rice, gel packets or kitty litter are available, try using a vacuum to suck the water out.
DO NOT blow-dry the parts, it will only force the water farther in and cause more damage.
Please take time to rate me.

The mp3 player is operating on its own without me touching it

Most likely this sort of problems occur when the device's Touchpad got wet with a few drops of water/liquid.

you need to take it apart and clean it with medical alcohol and hair dryer.
use tooth bruch swap it well.

Good Luck.

if you dried it out in rice after the fall then you might have a problem with the mother board if it was on when you dropped the device into the water than you could have fried one of the servers that help your computer to recognize the device

hope this helps you

good luck

My ipod got WET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Try this. Go to a Craft store (Michaels, Crafts Etc. and by some flower drying crystals. (Brand name Silica Gel probably less than $5.00) Drop your iPod in the crystals and leave it overnight. The silica gel should be in a air tight container (Zip loc bar or cookie tin). This is the same stuff that you find packed in electronic and can sometime help recover damp electronics. (As long as you haven't actually shorted it out)

My daughters sony walkman nwz-e436f was run thru washer and dryer. Can it be repaired or is it junk ?

When you run electronic equipment through a washer or water it gets it wet but wont wreck it until you give it power ussually. Let it dry out put in on a heater or in the dash of your car for a day or two to let it dry out. It might be good after that but wont work every time. Hope this helped.
