Found 16th Jun 2008
I have just found my husbands ipod in pocket of his jeans, only thing is they have just finished in the washing machine.
The screen has a water mark through it, I haven't tried to turn it on yet, any suggestons would be greatly appreciated.

thanks raptocigs, do I need to do the same with the earphones?

Yes it needs to dry out. Try the airing cupboard. I did the same with my mobile phone and it worked when it had dried out

Made me giggle.. one of my exes left over £100 in notes in his pockets once!
I spilt hot water on one of my phones - tried to dry it out but it refused to work and randomly went into vibrating mode all the time!

as with all the rest dont turn on until completely dry the water may of flattened the battery so dont be alarmed if it wont switch on after drying my phone survived the same thing

talking of laundry its brightened up,I should do mine.

Try putting it in the airing cupboard for a few days ...

If your in a hurry and good at it. You can open it up and dry the hard disc, screen etc. Or as everyone else said, leave it to dry for a while

Thanks everyone,
will hide it in a warm place for a while,
and then plead ignorant when he's looking for it?

Oh poo, good luck matey x

Place the blame firmly on your hubbie (my missus does it to me all the time!:-D)

Tell him if he didn't want it washing he shouldn't have put it in the washing basket.

Sounds familiar!!:viking:

Place it a plate and cover it with rice (raw from the supermarket). The rice has a natural tendency of absorbing moisture (similar to the silica gel pouches you get in new stuff). Make sure you dont get the rice in places it wont come out from (like headphones etc), and then place this in the airing cupboard. It should work fine as long as nothin has already shorted out!!! Chances are it will be fine.

My friend washed his nano and it was fine but I wuld reccommend the airing cupboard - worked when I dropped my phone down the toilet!!

so did it work???
