Water damage is not covered under warranty. They have a small indicator in the earphone jack that will tell the Apple Store if it's been water damaged.

Best way to hopefully recover it is to let it sit without turning it on, plugging it in, etc. for at least a week until all water evaporates. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

Check the warranty and see if you can get a new one

My 4 GB Nano was washed and dried, And will not turn on at all.


Well, you need to take the face cover off and make sure all the internal wires are still connected. If they are make sure they are dry and let it air out with the cover off. If it still doesnt work, then you have a broken ipod and you will have to send it to the factory and they will fix it for a small cost

I accidentally washed (and dried) my ipod.


Even though it got dried it's a good idea to take a blow dryer on low setting and dry the internal parts, that has worked for me in saving my electronics in the past.

Hope this helps.

Went through the wash !


First of all, do not try to power it on, plug it in, or press any buttons. I would flip the hold swith on top so you see orange so none of that happens. You need to be sure that all of it is dry first. However, realize that something probably bumped it enough to turn it on in the wash too, which could have zapped it pretty well. I would let it sit to dry for at least a week. I know it sounds terrible, but you need to be absolutely sure that it is dry. One tiny drop can ruin a whole ipod, if it is not already broken. There should be edges that are barely noticeable, but if you can pry them open with something really thin, without warping the plastic, you could get it open to dry. Just be very careful not to touch anything inside, because oils on your skin can be just as harmful as water. Good luck, and let me know what happens.

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.

2 gb ipod nano


you might need a special toolkit for it, but a sharp knife. and carefully open it.

sounds bad, if not dryed carefully its a goner.
Id take it apart and put it in a airthigh container filled with rise, keep it in there for a day or two then put back together.

If your lucky it will work

  1. Dry it off in all places you can find.
  2. Take a hairdryer and dry out all cracks and ports including docking and headphone ports.
  3. Let it sit out and dry for a few days.
  4. If that don't work, I don't know what will.
Hope it works.

Ipod nano


The bad news is its probably scoobied. Open your ipod up by using two small screwdrivers inserted between the metal and plastic parts of the casing and gently prise apart. Disconnect the hard drive and put to one side. Then there are some small screws that hold the top part of the casing on, unscrew these and lift the plastic cover away from the logic board and chassis.

Leave your ipod and all the bits open in a warm dry place for a couple of days to make sure it is fully dry. Then reassemble and try charging it.

As I say its probably knackered but you might get lucky.
