THIS ONE WORKED FOR US !!!!!!!! My son ran his I-pod nano through the washing machine. We found it at the end of the cycle. The i-pod wouldn't do anything. We took it and used a hair blowdryer holding it while blowing hot air "at" it. Than I placed it standing up on the counter with paper towels under it for a day. After 3 days, we both thought it was DOA. But I tried one last thing. I plugged it into the computer and opened i-tunes. I clicked to restore it to factory settings and it started charging. I than click on to reload all his songs and in a few minutes it was up and running. If fact I am listening to it as I enter this entry.

I have an Ipod Nano that went through the washer machine and now it will not turn on....any suggestions????


sorry to say most of the time when people get electronics wet the first mistake they make is trying to turn it on when it still has water or whatever in it and they fry the circuit's inside, so unfortunately looks like yours might be dead, next time anything like that gets wet dry it off for a few days in a bowl or rice and remove the battery if possible and only after your 100% sure its 100% dry then try and turn it back on, sorry there's a slim chance you can crack it open and replace the battery and it might work but its a slim possibility

I left my ipod shuffle in my washing machine.Now I cant get it to work,or to charge it!


If it actually went through a wash cycle I don't think that theres much hope of it working again.

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,

Wash and dry ipod 3rd gen


Other people have dried out their mp3 players and got it to work sporadically, but the water damage is irreversible. Call Apple and tell them that it just won't work - don't give them the details of how it got there.

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.

Washer


sorry, but you're probably screwed. Once wet, the connections inside start to corrode and then it's junk. Sell it on E-Bay as broken/part/repair. Be honest and let people know that it got wet. The case and a few parts may still be usable. Then take the money you get and buy a used working one off e-bay. you can usually get nanos in good used condition for $80 to $100
