Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player

Can u help me

My ipod took a dip in the washing machine 2 years ago, and i thought it would be perfectly dry by now but when i put it i to the charger or hold the menu button , only the apple sign shows up

- please help me:(
First of all I have the White 30GB, not the Black. My IPOD was in a backpack along with some sunscreen. I heard the spray go off a couple of times in my bag before I realized that it was spraying my IPOD. It stopped working for about a day and then I blew into it. It came back on so I put it on the charger. The next day I took it off the charger to use it and it would never come back on.

Well Basicly if you take the ipod apart, dry it, then place it in a airtight container filled with rise, and leave it in there for 2-4 days, in parts.. that might get it to work again.

Heres a few helpful videos for you. Remember to rate my solution. Thanks

Drums tries to turn but fails.

usually there is a board on the side of the wall of the machine. Check carefully for dry or burned tracks on the board. they either use a relay or possibly a triac etc, Current is fairly high and any bad soldering can create a dry joint. Look for any loose connections leading from the motor to the board. Check the tachometer which normally connects at the bottom end of the motor.Sometimes the magnet comes loose and gives an incorrect signal to the controller. let me know.

Phone Fired

Phone, you need a new one, fatal error, means something inside of your phone is fried. Charger, are you sure the outlet is good for electronics, sometimes the outlet is a dud after a while, even in newer homes, that is a possible problem, or you're getting the wrong charger, sometimes there isn't enough volts, or too many and can ruin yur battery, if you would like the perfect charger, google it, and figure out the perfect charger for your phone.

Zanussi WJD1667W not drying at all


I've got this machine, and all washer dryers tend to have two heating elements and it sounds to me that the heating element for the drying side of the machine's functions needs replacing. You could probably find a cheap element for the machine somewhere and get it fitted for a small sum.

Let me know if this rectifies your problem
