My iPod nano got washed and I let it dry for a couple of days, and it works now, but the backlight or something is dim and now I can only see the screen when I am shining some kind of light on it. WHAT DO I DO?!!

If you can not increase the brightness in the settings tab then odds are the backlight to the screen has gone out. To fix this a screen replacement would do the trick.

here is a link to an amazon store that sells them for under 15 bucks

Ipod Nano 4th gen LCD backlight not working


Its definitely the logic board (motherboard) that has gone bad. Its not the actual screen nor LCD. Its the logic board. You could replace the screen with a new onje and the backlight still will not work. Nano's are known for this but of course apple won't admit to putting out a piece of **** logic board in all of the nano's or they would have to recall 10 million of them! So, they just play stupid and say your nano is out of warranty but we'll give you a 10% trade in discount. What a joke! I know this because i used to work for Apple ;-) They screw customers left and right to keep their profits up.

I have ipod nano 8gb that got wet and want to fix it


I have fixed a few electronic devices (phones, jump drives, radios) by immediately removing the battery, removing screws and cracking the case open a little, and placing it on top of a lampshade with a 40 watt bulb. Device should be at least 8 or so inches away from the bulb. Keep it there for a couple of days in the warmth of the bulb. You might want to place a cloth over the lamp shade to keep a little more warmth in there.
You might not have any luck with the ipod because you can't remove the battery fast. It is very important to be able to remove all power from the device. It is also tricky to crack an ipod case open. This is needed to be able to dry effectively at all.
If it works after a couple of days of drying then that's great. (At least crack the case open.) It should work. But with an ipod, don't count on it. If it doesn't work, mount it on a placard as a reminder to check your pockets before laundry day!!

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.

What happends if ur apple ipod got washed


  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.

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.
