Try putting the Ipod in a ziploc bag with some uncooked rice. The rice will absorb any moisture still trapped inside. Leave it for a few days and it might work again. It depends on how long it stayed wet. It worked with my son's Ipod after he jumped into a swimming pool with the Ipod in his pocket. Good Luck

My daughter had her dsi in a grocery bag with an empty water bottle. When she got home she tried to play it and it would turn on and the first screen that says tap to continue showed up but not the dsi...

I would let it sit in rice for 24 hours. The rice should pull water from the device. DO NOT TRY A HAIR DRYER. The static electricity will fry anything electrical in the device.

My ipod 160gb got wet and know it wont turn on but when I try to charge it the screen blinks

1st - how long ago did it get wet?
2nd - have you stored it in a bag of uncooked rice for at least 24 hours? (You can wrap it in a tissue to keep dust out of the dock)

If you haven't done the second above - regardless of how long ago it got wet - you should try this BEFORE trying anything else using electric current!! You may do more damage if there's water inside the case.

My wonderful little sony cyber-shot got drenched when my water bottle spilled in my purse. It was in my purse about 5 minutes when I discovered it wet. I took it out and laid it in my car seat to dry it...

Every time you try to turn on a camera that still has water in it, you fry the circuits. You should have removed the battery and card, dried as much as you could and then buried the camera in a bowl of dry rice for a week before even thinking of trying it.

Cleaning my fossil leather purse

Actually you are in a wrong place - this is where we fix watch and clock related problems.
But there is one advise I can give you:
All good/respectable shoe shops sell special cleaning fluids for many different types of leather. Do not mind these are shoe shops, as shoes, bags, purses, belts and so on are made of same source- leather.
So, take your purse with you and visit one of these shops. They will give you advice what's best for your particular purse. You can buy special spray as well - it will help to keep all dirt and grime at bay in future.

Rate me, please.

I got some water in my ipod!what can i do?

Leave the ipod in direct sunlight for 10 minutes (you should cover it with a cloth if you like) then try restarting it. It will be fine. You can also use a hair dryer to get the water/moisture out.

Waste toner is almost full on Ricoh aficio AP3800C

Open the main front cover and you will see the white plastic waste toner bottle on the left hand side halfway up. I lies on its side and you can see the bottom of it.

Slide it out gently keeping it level to avoid spilling all the waste toner.

Either replace with a fresh empty waste bottle or empty the bottle into a large plastic bag you can keep sealed with the bottle inside while you shake it.

You have a good chance of spilling the toner all over your clothes if you are not carefull and note that the waste toner IS HIGHLY INFLAMMABLE so no naked flames nearby!!

You do not do anything unless your phone doesn't work.... The little paper inside turns a color when it gets wet because if your phone is under warranty it usually does not cover damage from wetness and when you send it in they will see this and usually will not fix the phone, but if it is not working you can try to dry it out by first taking out the battery, and then putting the cell phone with the battery cover off in a ziploc bag with those little packets you get in shoe boxes or in a purse that say DO NOT EAT or when I needed it I did not have those and my daughter washed her phone and I put in a ziploc bag and completely covered it with rice which will absorb the moisture. I have done this with her ipod also.... I was always taught to put rice in a salt shaker living in the south with the humidity to keep the salt from clumping and that the rice absorbs the moisture.... Good luck
