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.

IPod went through the washer.


Open it to see if the Lithium battery is swollen. If it is you might only have to replace it. If you have tried to turn it on much while wet, your Pod is Pot. Sorry,

My nano was almost out of battery, it went black, plugged it in to recharge and it is frozen. Can't get it to do anything.


A simple reset will probably work. Running Mp3 players on low batt can cause all sorts of goofiness.

My Ipod Nano went throught the wash?


Hello AllieBaba,

I am sorry to hear about your Ipod Nano. Unfortunately Best Buy's™ Product Replacement Plan (PRP) does not cover liquid or physical damage. As such, the PRP would not cover the damage sustained by a MP3 player that was run through the wash.
Best Regards,
Ken
