Question about Apple iPod nano 3rd Generation

2 Answers

Wased iPod nano--was working, now its not.

I washed my ipod nano, and I dried the water out of it, then let it sit for 4 days. It worked for a few days, but suddenly, it stopped powering on when I press a key. It does come on when I connect it to my compter, though. Is there anything I can do?

Washing it voids the warranty. They can tell by looking inside the headphone jack. There's a visual indicator if it gets wet.

Water damage ipod nano


It looks like your Ipod is damaged beyond repair.
If it could be repaired it maybe too expensive. I suggest you put your money towards a new Ipod.

I washed my ipod chromatic accidently and theres water in the screen the ipod still plays and screen works is there a wy to get the water out


Get it in a baggie full of rice IMMEDIATELY and leave it there until the rice wicks away the moisture - it may take a few days and a change of the rice. If you have been saving those dessicant packs that come w/electronics and such - they work even better.

I dropped my ipod touch in the sink and it now it doesn't work


to fix this, you're going to need your ipod, a plastic zip-lock bag, and uncooked rice. first, open the bag and fill it halfway with uncooked rice. then put your ipod in the middle of it all. then zip the bag and let it sit for about a day. the rice should have absorbed all the water by then. most of the times, this will work. but sometimes, the ipod is damaged beyond repair by the water. good luck
hope this helps ;-)

The screen won't light up on my ipod, but


Unfortunately there is no solution since the water has messed up the LCD. Have you tried going to settings and check if the back light option is on?

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.

My ipod nano chromatic ha water damage from the washer


Sometimes if you leave it sit for several days or so it will dry out completely and start to work again. I don't recommend charging it or plugging it in for several days or so as if there is still water in it, it may fry some of the chips. It may be beyond repair though.

Ipod nano got wet from water and does not work


take a blow drier and put it under it for about 5 mins. go on and off for about a half an hour and keep doing that on and off for a day or two. you just want to get it as dry as possible, inside and out.

I washed my son's iPod Nano and dried it also...


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.

Repair ipod


If the iPod was on, and fell in the pool, then probably not. If it wasn't I would let it dry out, use a hairdryer and blow the water out through the cracks (and headphone and docking jack) and let it sit for a few days. Try to use it then. Since the warranty doesn't cover it, i'm sorry if it won't work.
