Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player

3 Answers

I need help!!!

My ipod fell in a tiny puddle of water and stopped working for about 2hours. It began to work again as if nothing happened. This was in August. In December it just stopped working completely. It responds when i plug it in, the light turns on when I take it off hold, but the touch scroll part is not responding at all.

Well if it has been working since August then the water is not the problem (at least not directly). The water could have started some corrosion to start in the electronics, which maybe just now has gotten bad enough to cause a malfunction, or it could be something else completely (not related to the water incident).

You might just have a bad click wheel. Which is pretty cheap to fix ($20-40)

Ipod fell in water


Open the iPod classic and clean and dry it out as much as you can. Here's a guide on how to disassemble an iPod classic. Maybe a tech savy friend can do it for you. If you want to pay to have a service do it for you there are third party iPod Repair Services.

You either have a loose wire or you'll need a display board. The only other cheap thing that you can try is to unplug the unit and plug it back in. But if that doesn't work then it's one of two things. Are you sure that you don't have a extended warranty on this unit? Is this a GE unit?

Phone fell in puddle


Sadly I think it is too late to help. If it had water inside, that probably shorted it out. However, in the future, you should take the battery out as soon as possible to prevent this.

If you want to try something, just let it dry completely and then try using it again. I doubt that this will do anything, but it might end up working.

Fell in water


Purchase and eyeglass repair kit and get ready to do minor repair. The device is not completely dry on the inside. Water gets trapped and wont dry unless you open it up. I know you probably don't want to take it apart, but if you don't the water is going to destroy it anyway. Find the tiny screws that hold the case together and gently remove them. Use a piece of paper to make reminders exactly what goes where and work on a tabletop so you lose nothing. Only take it apart until you see the moisture. Use a blow dryer on the lowest setting (no heat) and evaporate as much liquid as possible. Leave it open for a couple days and be sure there is no moisture left. Avoid touching anything with your bare hands because oils from your skin are not good for electrical components. Now, as long as nothing shorted out, you should be able to reassemble the device, charge it overnight and resume using it. Touchy work, but worth saving. P.S. don't work around carpet as static discharge isn't good for these components either. Good Luck!!!

IPod click wheel frozen


Try to restart the Ipod.

Hold the select button and the menu at the same time until you see the screen go off.

If still does not work then try to enter disk mode and see if it works.

Disk Mode:
Reboot the ipod via Select and menu, right away hold the select and play button and hold until disk mode comes on. Does the wheel work?

If still does not work then reboot the ipod again and let it reboot normal to go back in apple firmware. If all buttons are working and none of the above works, I would assume it is not software related.
