Take it to Apple. You’ll have a 1 year warranty on it ๐Ÿ™‚ It should all be fine!

ATTENTION!   I DID THIS! EXCEPT I WASHED IT TWICE!  MINE IS A SHUFFLE, AND I WASHED IT, THOUGHT IT WAS A GONER BUT IT WASN’T. LET IT DRY OUT COMPLETELY, DON’T MESS WITH IT OR TURN IT ON THOUGH. ONCE IT DRIES, IT SHOULD BE FINE.

HOPE IT WORKS FOR YOU!

my BF did the same exact thing… let it completely dry out and it should be fine.

Agree – let it dry out.  I had a phone that someone dropped a drink on, and the picture was black for a day or two, but it came alive again.

@ Osaka – I hope it works for you. It’s worth a shot at least. Don’t completely panic yet!

If you have any packets of descant (you know, that you get with shoes sometimes), but it with the ipod.  Whatever you do, don’t turn it on for a few days.

Yep, Dropped my iPhone in a sink full of water.  My friend washed her iPhone too.  Put it face down on a towel and do not turn it on!  Give it a day or so and it should work again once it drains and dries… Apple products tend to be pretty tough!

Put it in a container of rice and leave it for a couple of days!!! My FI has washed his Ipod, dropped his cellphone down a manhole, in a cooler full of water, and in soup, and rice is always a foolproof method of drying them out!

I dropped my iPhone in the loo about a week ago – totally by accident. Yes, the loo. Apple don’t cover water damage but I was told that there’s a flat fee for liquid damage that’s quite a lot cheaper than getting a new iPhone! Dry it out, see if it works. If it does, great! If it doesn’t then I’d still book an appointment with the Genius Bar and see if they can do anything.

These are some great methods to dry out any cellphone ipod etc. that has gotten stuck in water or a wash cycle in the machine! 

Before you even dry it out though it is reccomended that you wash it in distilled/deionized water BECAUSE tap water & salt water all have ions in them that can cause a short when the item is turned back on. 

  • a ziplock bag of uncooked rice and let it sit for a few hours
  • a bag with some silica packets
  • a hearing aid dryer for a few hours
  • Place it in an oven with just the oven light on for a few days
  • A bag of clay-based absorbent

It sucks but one of these will hopefully work!
