My daughter's Zune went through the washing machine and dryer in May 2008. I checked the internet & it looked pretty bleak. I couId see water inside the screen area & it would not turn on at all. I decided to just leave it sitting on the counter for awhile instead of just throwing it away. Three weeks later I tried to turn it on & got a low battery display. We plugged it in, charged it and it has been working ever since (it is now August 2008).

Doubtful if the battery was inside it. If it runs off AA / AAA batteries try replacing the battery once it dries out. Try setting the unit outside in the heat for about a day. Even a little water inside it will be bad.

My Sony player went thru the wash and was in overalls pocket for 3 days b4 I discovered it. Spray contact cleaner thru the headphone socket until it ran out of the unit. Left it to dry out for a few hours but still no luck. A friend advised me to puff the fumes of nail polish remover into the unit( DO NOT POUR THE LIQUID INTO YOUR PLAYER!!) Presto it fired up and is now charging and playing fine. The contact cleaner (iso alcohol) will help remove and corrosion on the pcb and contacts inside the player.

MP3 player went through washing machine


hi thanks for using fixya!

The first thing you should do is not to turn the power on of the player, once it was soaked or wet very hardly, you must let it dry first before turning the power on, to avoid short circuit. In your case, we are not sure if its going to work again, but let it dry properly, but if its too late, and won't work again, maybe it is time to buy a new one, and start to be more careful! good luck!

Please do not forget to rate me positively! thanks!

Washing machine safe


Good job - you were lucky. The casing on this one is water-resistant. If water had touched to electronics - bye-bye!

My RCA TH11 has stopped working. at first the player would automatically delete songs from the player after i downloaded new songs. i finally got tired of it and erased all the songs so i could start over...


his is a firmware problem. Go to http://support.rcaaudiovideo.com/downloa... and download (save) the firmware update. Then follow the directions to upload it onto your Pearl. As soon as you are done, it will work perfectly!

I found this on another website..it worked for mine

Washed up


well what i try is disassamble as much as possible, then using a hair drier dyry it, not too hot, you do not want to melt anything. depending on how fay you can take it apart will depend on the drying time. many electroncs will need to be replaced after being dropped into water. you got lucky it's not salt water. after drying it, let it sit for a day or so. DO NOT plugg in power because if there is any water left inside it will short out the electronics damageing the unit. good luck
