Question about Apple iPod nano 3rd Generation
Long story short, my son's Ipod went through the washer. We dried it out and eventually it did start working again. This was several months ago. The Ipod has died again. I figured the warranty was void as soon as it hit the spin cycle so it has been dismantled. Here are the symptoms. Gray screen with a horizontal black line going through the middle of the screen. When tried to reset, it beeps twice and then nothing. Any ideas on how to fix this? Is it worth fixing? Thanks...
Push center and menu buttons as you keep it connected to the computer charger. That will hard reset the ipod. If it doesn't respond to the hard reset it is more likely you have motherboard issue. You can try to open it and clean the corroded parts on the logic board. If that doesn't help, there are logic boards available on ebay, there is a ipod repair guide that will show you how to open your ipod replace the logic board.

The issue here is that you may have damage to the motherboard from the water. The water can not only short out motherboard components but it can also start to oxidize on the surface. In some cases, these units are recoverable but we would need to inspect the board under a scope and try and clean the contacts.
