    Electronics Question

    I recently lost my brain and put my ipod through the washer and dryer. Is there any hope for saving it or is it time for me to say my farewells?

    Put it in rice/oatmeal for a couple days and then try to turn it on after that.

    You might have some hope if you do not turn it on before it's completely dried out.

    Re: Electronics Question

    Unfortunately, you can't really take apart on iPOD (thanks Apple) easily, so you have to hope that letting it dry out as one piece will be sufficient.

    Put it in rice and don't touch it for 3 days. Then try to power it on.

    I've never had much luck with electronics and water. Safe bet it's toast.
