Question about Apple Mini IPod

1 Answer

I put my ipod in the washing machine...

I accidentally left my ipod in my pants pockets when washing my clothes. Obviously my ipod did not survive this careless act.

I was going through my whites and colors. I thought i got all of them but unfortunately i skipped one and that one had my i month old i-pod nano video in it..My clothes washed normal but when i put it in the drier it started making noises so I went to check and I found my i-pod making all that noise and now I'm waiting for it to dry..to see if it will make a miracle and survive..

Hi there

im so sorry for that friend. what you can do is bring that to a service center and hope that the technician can dry and replace the batteries for that and hope that it will still work.

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.

Okay so my mom washed my clothes with out asking me and...


the warranty wont cover water damage.

No they wont repair it for free, if at all.
Theres water inside and its probably done some damage already, you would have to take it apart and dry it completely, it might improve, it might not..

let me know how that goes.

It was washed in my washer


You might as well buy a new one, water damage is not something you can just "fix".

Good job - you were lucky. The casing on this one is water-resistant. If water had touched to electronics - bye-bye!

IPod shuffle got wet in the washing machine


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.

Ipod got wet wont hold a charge and wont switch to play list i accidentally left my ipod shuffle in my pocket and then it got wet in the washing machine it was in there for about 30 seconds please help


Hi,
You probably already have the answer to this, but if you send it to Apple, they may just give you a new iPod. If they even think that it got wet, though, they won't fix it. You will have to replace the battery. There are a number of places that will do that for you. I hopw that helps.

Hey


Hi golden, I don't think I have good news for you.

If the Ipod is gone through a complete wash, staying a long time in cold and hot water with detergent, and being bumped around all the time, then drying it will not be enough.

The water has for sure gone into the LCD display, into the internal memory, has shorted circuits etc.

The internal battery had lso been probably damaged by water.

I am afraid the only thing you can do is getting a replacement if the Ipod is still covered with guaranty.

Let me know if by chance the Ipod turns on showing something on screen.

Ipod nano 4GB is WET


Greetings Goldenlily13,

As a mom who did the exact same thing to her 14 year olds Ipod, I can totally empathize. However the only solution I came up with was to purchase a new Ipod. My daughter still has her original one due to sentimental value, it was engraved. It still has not ever worked again and this happened in March.

Sorry I don't have a better solution.

I think you fried it. put it under a lamp for a while (not too close to the lamp) to try and dry it out. if that doesnt work, something shorted out inside, and you can repair it or get a nice shiny new one
