iPod in the Washing Machine - DOH!
I know there is a similar question out there relating to a water damaged iPod Nano 4th Generation. However, given my symptoms are different, I thought I would post a separate question.
My daughter accidentally put her coat, with the iPod, in the washing machine.
(1) The display does not work.
(2) The click wheel clicks. Furthermore, I can click next and back to go to the next song and back, respectively. However, given that the display does not work, I cannot be sure if the click wheel is functioning. Moving my finger around the wheel generates the clicking sound.
QUESTION: Do you think I need to replace the display? And the click wheel?
F.W.I.W.: It's been about 2 months since the accident. I waited about 2 days before trying the iPod.
First the good news
We were successful in replacing the display. We can now see the display.
Now the bad news.
However, the iPod now lacks any backlight. Right now, it only works in the sunlight. I even tried setting backlight to 'always on'.
I have read some other posts suggesting to replace the logic board. At the risk of rendering the iPod completely non-functioning, I am reluctant to replace the logic board.
Any other suggestions would be appreciated.
