Sassy - call the mp3 manufacturer - tell them your mp3 player won't turn on, but don't say a single solitary word about the water damage; then get an exchange from them

if you are out of warranty, you are out of luck

Mypanasonic wireless system got water damage how can I fix it

It really depends how much water got into it. The water may for example have washed away part numbers which would be hard to replace without knowing them.
My feeling however is the cost of repair will be too much and you should really consider a new one.

I bought a archos 3 mp3 player back in august and a few days ago my touch screen stopped responding, so i left it. i came to today and i have a funny coloured screen like water or something has gotten into...

Have it observed within 24 - 48 hours if they are functioning well and if the funny colored screen is still there within 2 days, contact the company that you have purchased the device and asked them about the warranty policy and have them replaced.

All my music and videos are gone and the screen is messed up from the inside. I dropped my itouch in the sink of water for one second and immediately dried it but it seems to has some problems what should...

1) Sell it on eBay to help cover the cost of a new iPod, you'll probably be able to get 50-70 dollars for it.


2) Find and pay someone either on eBay or another website who are able to fix water damaged iPods.

Wet Sansa...Motherboard replacement price and procedure?

The motherboard is not an orderable part. Unless you are an expert electrician, I would replace the whole player. Here is a link to the video on the insides (about 10 minutes long):

The people I call can't hear me on my LG Envy

You can tell if your phone has gotten wet by taking out the battery. There's a little sticker both on the phone and on your battery that is white with little red crosses on it. If it's faded and red, you have water damage. I recently had the same problem though, without any water damage. They told me that it was not a common problem.. but it's happened to me twice, on two different Env's. Soo... sounds like a common problem to me.

Screen Tear

Hello patriotisaac,

Best Buy can repair the screen on your Insignia MP3 player if it is damaged. To get service take the unit into the Geek Squad counter at your local Best Buy store. The store will assist you in getting the unit sent out to one of our service centers for repair.

Be aware that screen damage is not covered by the manufacturer's limited warranty. That means that you would be responsible for the cost of the repairs, including paying a diagnosis fee up front (which would be applied toward the cost of the repair if you accept the estimate).

To be honest, depending on the extent of the damage, it may be in your best interests to simply consider replacing the MP3 player with a new one. Because of the high cost of repair and the affordability of new MP3 players, it may simply be more economical to purchase a new MP3 player rather then repairing the damaged one. Again, your local Best Buy store can help guide you in making the best decision for you.

Best regards,
Go Ahead. Use Us.

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.
