Hi myoungman56...

If you ever find that you have to deal with a wet device, don't just abandon it.
Instead, try the following method to repair the water damage:
DO NOT TURN IT ON!
Take it apart as much as you can. Take out the battery, the memory card and whatever else can be easily disassembled. (Just make sure you can put it back together.)
Store the parts in an air-tight container covered with either dry rice, silica gel packets or kitty litter. These will absorb the moisture from your electronics device, leaving it water-free.
If no rice, gel packets or kitty litter are available, try using a vacuum to **** the water out.
DO NOT blow-dry the parts, it will only force the water farther in and cause more damage.

Phone got very wet and does not work , washing machine.


Larry, If you have washed your phone too, then it may have short circuited and burnt itself off. For a few minutes it may have survived the short circuit by expecting it to survive the whole wash cycle is asking for the moon. Anyway, After removing the battery, use your hair dryer on it without the heat for a long time so that all traces of water are dried up. Then reinsert the battery and cross your finger before you power it on.

Ipod nano went through the wash


its gone (unless through some fluke it survived) they are NOT made to come in contact with water. (don't leave one out in the rain either) most electronics CANNOT continue operation after being washed or getting wet unless they specify otherwise (even water proof electronics may not survive the wash) just a friendly warning.

Wet ipod


DO NOT turn it on, it will short circuit extremely sensitive circuitry inside your iTouch turning into a useless paperweight! Get a tupperware type of container big enough to put your iPod in and completely immerse it in DRY rice and seal it in there for at least a couple of days. The rice will absorb any and all moisture inside the container as well as inside your iPod. Online there is a place called Rapid Repair that specializes in iPod repairs. They will run a free diagnostic on your iTouch and tell you if it survived. Their web address is http://www.rapidrepair.com/. I hope that helps
