My poor iPod 4g took a quick spin in the wash. I thing put it in rice and silica gel for a while. Everything seems to work but the screen is kaput. I bought an iPod 6g, which seems to have gone insane and now has what the internet calls "the white screen of death. Hard reset doesn't work. Can someone please aid me in my predicament?

My iPod Shuffle went through the wash 6 days ago. After the second day it started working, then it died. I was highly upset. I put it in the charge and it won't charge at all. It won't even show up on Itunes. Now I'm scared. I don't want to get yelled at my mom, so save me a lecture on how to be responsible. Because I've been through that over and over again. I have no music!!!! SAVE ME.

i left my ipod in my jeans and it went threw the wash, i was pissed! dont try and charge the ipod! put it in a sock and and tie a knot, put that sock in another sock and tie another knot, make sure the knots are down the bottom of the sock where the ipod will sit so the ipod will b as warm as possible and the moisture can evaporate. i left mine for around 3 days,, i just turned it on and now it works!! HAPPY DAYS!

Ok so my mom picked up a pair of capris in my room that had my iPod nano in them and threw them in the washer. I took the iPod back to my room and decided to try to charge it.( hey I had never read any of these forums before, ok?) so I left it charging for about an hour. I tried to turn it on again with no success. THEN I started to read forums like these and realized the worst possible thing to do was to plug it in.( apparently this corrodes the inside.)I also read that most people left there's in rice and it would start working again!!!(woot woot!) I've left it in the rice for about three weeks now, but I'm worried that when i take it out that nothing will happen. I don't know what I should do. PLEASE HELP!!!!!

submerge the iPod in rubbing alcohol , this will displace the water and evaporate much quicker than water. then place in sealed plastic bag filled with rice for 72 hours. do not apply any power till after removing from bag. if this doesn't work go buy a new one.
