The main point is to act quickly, not to give the chemicals time to react. The longer you leave it before you did all you could, the more time you gave corrusion and other such reactions to take place. in any case of dropping into liquid follow these steps: Remove the battery immediately; rinse in distilled water. Why? Distilled water isn't ionised and has a high breakdown dielectric; ordinary tap water is ionised and conductive. leave it in your airing cupboard for a week to dry (if there's any sign of damp anywhere, just put it back in the cupboard for another week). Reattach battery. If it doesn't appear to malfunction (bear in mind the battery may be flat), try putting it on the charger. If it appears to charge (and holds the charge), and still works, you've probably got away with it. If dropped into a soft or sweet drink rinse more thoroughly in distilled water before drying. Carbonated, sugared drinks and hot, sweet coffee are the worst. You may be lucky if it survives. If the liquid is greasy (e.g. coffee with cream, soup etc.) You can use a mix of iso-propyl alcohol and water. IT types use it to clean computers. The water dissolves all the water soluble sugar etc. and the IPA dissolves the grease. A word of advice for the future: leather cases (the ones with leather, not elastic, sides) are your friend. They can protect from splashes and even brief immersion. Good luck

My go gear vibe is wet

Immediately remove the battery and don't even think about turning it on until it's completely and thoroughly dry. Even then, it's still a good chance that it's dead.

It dont charge or turn on

was it washed? if it was you should have waited to try and turn it on. if it was wet same deal. if it was never washed or wet and its still having issues you have a major problem. even an error-ed mp3 player will respond to being plugged in. unfortunately short of calling in on a warranty or returning it for a replacement to the retailer you purchased it from there is not a lot that you can do. a dead battery would leave a player that will respond to being plugged in but will die upon unplug, and an error-ed one will do something when plugged in. does the PC recognize it? it could be a broken screen although them just dieing is rare. sorry if this doesn't answer your problem, but i hope it does.

Sony bean mp3 problem reply ASAP

The most common cause is a flat battery. There is a trick to charging the battery in these small mp3 players. It wont charge if it is turned on, and it won't charges if it's turned off. Here what to do...
1. plug the payer into your USB port. or wall charger
2. switch thje palyer on using the mechanical switch (on the side)
3. turn it off by either holding down the play button, or selecting "System" from the menu
4. The screen will go black and the battery will begin charging.

My walkman mp3 player wont turn on!! how do i get it to turn on? it hasn't gotten wet or anything and i cat think of any reason why it shouldnt be working

When you plug it into the USB port of your computer does it do anything? If it doesn't then your player is likely dead. If it does do something then it likely just needs a full recharge.

Sony walkman nw-e55 got wet and now dosnt work

sounds like your SOL and even if it could be repaired it'd cost more than a new one, best thing to do when something like that gets wet is to disassemble it, remove battery and let it dry out ASAP!, i've saved many electronic devices in this way.
