Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player

1 Answer

........ 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.

Parts are most likely damaged and would need to be replaced.

Water is deadly for electronics.

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.

My home button wont work i press it and it doesnt do nothing i have the ipod touch 1st generation

hi guys dont worry about it. its not really a major problem because sometimes the ipod has really really tiny malfunctions like this and no, im not from the apple store so dont ask anyway all you have to is this: plug in your ipod to the computer using the usb cable. now it should say that it is syncing if not, sync your ipod. while it is syncing, press cancel sync on your ipod touch and it should cancel and take you back to the home screen. This shouldnt happen again but if it does, at least you have a way to return to your home menu cya :)

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.
