Chances are your unit may still work, like cell phones do after being dropped into toilet bowls. However, before this happens, its innards need to be fully dried up. A session in the dryer after being washed may not be enough. Since this is a well sealed unit, it may need several days of drying up. I would try leaving it under direct sun light for several days, and then try to charge it and see if it still works.
Good luck!

How to Fix an iPod Shuffle That Won't Turn On


Things You'll Need:

* iPod Shuffle iPod USB cable Power adapter

The iPod Shuffle is the smallest member of Apple's line of MP3 players. During the device's lifetime, you may find that the iPod freezes or seems to not turn on anymore. Since the iPod Shuffle does not have a display attached to it, you cannot be notified of any device errors. However, there are several troubleshooting steps you can take to repair your iPod.


Instructions


Plug the iPod USB cable into the iPod Shuffle and then connect it to the power adapter to recharge the iPod's battery. The iPod Shuffle may not be turning on because its battery has fully drained.


Move the button on the back of the iPod Shuffle to the "off" position.


Wait five seconds with the iPod in "off" mode before switching the device back on. This process will reset the iPod Shuffle memory.


Connect the iPod Shuffle to your Mac or PC computer if it still will not turn on.


Open the iTunes program and sync your iPod with your computer. When you unplug your iPod from your computer, it should turn on normally again.

Hope it helped.

Have a nice day.

I washed my daughter's ipod shuffle which was in her jeans pocket


These are never easy situations to experience, but I can only advise you to disconnect the iPod Shuffle for the computer, make sure it is turned to "Off" mode and allow it to sit in a place where there is sunlight or heat for at least 3-4 days untouched.

I have heard this process being done by a few folks for different iPod/iPhone devices, so hopefully this will work for you.

This is however, the only suggestion in such cases where an electronic device like your iPod shuffle has been subjected to moisture or water.

If this still does not help, you will more than likely have to take the iPod Shuffle in for service at an Apple-authorized iPod repair center or unfortunately replace it with a new iPod.

I hope this helps and you are able to get your iPod back to functionality again.

Regards,

-Terry

IPod shuffle was sent through the wash...


If you've been trying to turn it on, then it's unlikely to work again. If anything like that happens again, "DON'T TURN IT ON". Take the item apart carefully keeping the screws together and leave the parts spread out in a warm dry place like an airing cupboard for about a week. Then put it back together and cross your fingers.

battery may need to be recharged.

Green/orange flahing light on IPod and no music.


From Apple.com Support Website. If the front status light on your iPod shuffle blinks orange and green when you press any button, then your iPod shuffle is experiencing some type of error. Try these troubleshooting steps to resolve the problem. To troubleshoot the iPod shuffle error light: 1. Turn off your iPod shuffle 2. Wait a few seconds 3. Turn your iPod shuffle back on again If this does not resolve the problem: 1. Check to make sure there are songs on your iPod shuffle 2. Use iTunes to add songs to iPod shuffle and try again If your iPod shuffle continues to display a blinking orange and green light, use iPod Updater 2005-02-11 or later to restore iPod shuffle, and then add songs with iTunes. If your iPod shuffle still shows a blinking orange and green light after trying all of the above steps, your iPod shuffle may need service. Best of Luck.
