Re: Washed IPOD

Im not sure about it but I suggest that you should refer that to the nearest ipod dealer immediately because I do believe that the chipsets including the motherboard of it are very sensitive.

I washed my nano in the washing machine it wont turn on

No electrical item can be washed in a washing machine!! The cost of repairing this would be as much as a new one!
Sorry Brian! Sling it in the bin, you haven't got a chance in hell of getting this working.

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.

My ipod got got in the washer and got washed

Yes there is something you can do. Put rice in a sealable container and place your ipod in the rice. try to cover the ipod completely. the rice is a good sponge for water and it is almost the only way you can fix a waterlogged ipod.

IPod went through the washer.

Open it to see if the Lithium battery is swollen. If it is you might only have to replace it. If you have tried to turn it on much while wet, your Pod is Pot. Sorry,
