It is common to experience water damage with your iPod. Many times a user will drop the iPod into water, rendering it functionless. Sometimes it would drop the iPod into a bucket of water or just at the sink. It could also get drinks spilling onto it and seeping inside. When such a scenario arises, one should not give up. The iPod can easily be repaired. However, one should proceed with great speed and rescue it before the damage becomes unbearable. Remember that water damage is not entailed in the iPod nano warranty.
Once the iPod has been exposed to water, the initial thing one ought to do is to have it switched off. This should be done without wasting time and giving the water time to cause further damage. Afterwards have the iPod submerged inside a bowl filled with rice up to twenty four hours. Rice will function as a desiccant and absorb the water. The battery and any spare is also removed and added to the bowl. The water needs to be dried quickly. Thence, the iPod should never be charged for a period of 24 hours so as to save it. Let the drying process happen gradually until complete.
In the absence of rice, the iPod could be dried by acting fast. Here, it is unscrewed before the moisture therein gets wiped using a cloth or towel. Normally, the water would only be on the outside parts. After patting all the water, get it wrapped inside a paper towel and put in a zipped bag. The bag shouldn’t be sealed in this process. Place the bag under direct sunlight for instance, at the dashboard of your car or window sill. The iPod should get switched on after the 24 hour drying.
After getting the water issue sorted out, the device will be able to properly function. Suppose the damage is severe, the iPod could get dismantled and individual components dried up. In case of any damage to the internal circuit, then the iPod may never have to function. This happens if the damage is to the extreme.
Once the gadget is fully opened, you must try to dry all those internal parts and free them of the water. Allow it to dry fully and put it back again. You can only open if you are aware of what you are doing. Once you switch on the iPod and it fails to start, then it is safe to declare it totally spoilt. Granted, you would have done all that was in your power.
Normally, there are professionals that know how to deal, effectively, with damage caused by the water in the iPod. Taking the devices to experts helps avoid unnecessary losses. The experts would be able to restore it back to use. This would come at a cost but it would be worth it. The DIY should be done only by those that have basic knowledge of the mechanisms of working of the iPod. This would prevent unnecessary loses.
