    No, it won't power up, even unplugged from the computer.



    What do you mean whne you say "does it come with a charge"??



    I read semewhere that you should take it apart, like the cover thing, then take out the battery to let it dry out a bit. I tried that, but it got pretty beat up attempting to open it...

    i got it off, but when I put it on, it still didn't work....

  • Shannon4994 Feb 17, 2008

    Oh.

    No.

    While ot was being charged through my computer, it would just basically turn on showing the apple logo, then turn off. Then turn on showing the apple logo, then turn off. Over and over again.



    It broke, like, about a year ago, so I don't think any solution will work very well.

    I just found this site, and I was just hoping to find out whether it still stands a chance.



    Thanks for all your help, by the way!

    so far

    First off, I would unplug it from the computer when trying to get it to come back on. When it's plugged into the computer, you are competing with the computer which is also trying to access the device.

    Also, does it hold a charge? It could be that the battery is toast. Will it power on when it's not connected to the computer?

    I'm really just throwing out suggestions. Going through the wash is pretty much a death scenario in most cases, but I've seen devices come out just fine once they dried out.

    I was asking if it will hold a charge. Does the battery hold power after being charged?

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.

Whirlpool duet ht, motor running but nothing happening, says 48 mins to go, cancel does not work. Have unplugged but will not reset. Left over night unplugged, stiil not reset. Cannot open door to even get...


Our Duet washer (5 years old) would not pump the water out, and would not spin. It displayed no error codes. Tried reset, would cancel but still not work. I started disassembly (found the Whirlpool maintenance/ repair manual on line to refer to); everything seemed to check OK. Cleaned filter, fortunately the washer sits on a pedestal drawer as the washer had at least 3 gallons of water in it I had to drain into a bucket. As I went through the diagnostic test sequence found in the repair manual it was apparent that although the pump had power and made noise, no water pumped out. I removed the pump assembly and found the remains of a small plastic baggy fouling the pump impeller. It was left in a clothes pocket and run through the washer. No idea why the filter basket didn't stop it. Pulled baggy out with needle-nosed pliers and presented it to my wife (her baggy). Reassembled and all works great. No cost, actually made 1 cent on the penny found in the filter basket. You need a Torx screwdriver to access most of the panels. Reason for not spinning was the massive weight of wet towels and water sitting in basket.

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,

8gb nano ipod not working


remove screws, pull apart, let air dry or try drying with hair dryer. don't recommend pulling screen apart. There is several layers of the screen. It is hard to remember what order the screen layers go. But still take apart for better drying.

Ipod nano went thru washer, now won't work


I did the exact same thing to my iPod nano 3rd gen. I discovered it by the noise it made in the dryer when it fell out of the pocket. Clack! Clack! It seemed dead, but it made a full recovery. What I did was put it on the dashboard of my car for a couple of sunny days to dry out, recharged it, and it was fine. If you have particularly hard water, maybe you'd want to try dipping it in some distilled water just to get rid of any mineral residue before drying it out. I'm impressed with how tough these dudes are. Good luck.

Dryer Issue


Ouch! Unfortunately, the Video iPods are more fragile, electrically, than most (and there's a lot of static and heat in a dryer). Also, the hard drive probably didn't appreciate being tumble-dried! If you want to attempt to repair it, first try a new logic board from iFixit. They have parts and free step-by-step repair instructions. You may also need a new hard drive. After attempting to replace both, it's not worth saving, unfortunately (you can get a refurbished Video iPod from Apple's site for roughly $200).
