Fixing an iPod Touch from water damage

I found my son's iPod Touch in the washer machine after the machine had completed it's full cycle.....needless to say, it was submerged at least part of the time.

I dried it off as well as I could (wrapped it in a cloth towel and placed it over a low volume heating device for several hours). All evidence of moisture under the glass screen was then gone.

I then charged the unit for 12 hours and then tried to turn on the unit....to no avail.

Any chance I/you can fix this device...Apple does not address water damaged units as far as I know.

Thanks,

Art Duffy

RICE DOES NOT WORK! And will never work.

Read my answer below for some actual useful information!

Earlier today I dropped my iPod 5th gen in the toilet! It was only in there for about 10 secs after this I dried it off the best I could, the screen and on but I was not able to do anything. Soon after the screen went black I put it in a bowl of rice and I'm going to leave it for about 48 hours. Do u think this will work? If not what should I do?

take a look at some of the other answers with the tags liquid spill and water damage.

step one is to let it dry out for at least several days before assessing what might be dead/damaged, it will likely take much longer than 12 hours. be patient and 'don't plug it in or charge it for a while. it will help to dismantle it to let it dry out. in the other answers you will also see a tip to store in a container of uncooked rice to absorb the moisture.

sometimes drying things out for many days will at least show some life or in best case it may work again. my old cellphone went through the wash and appeared completely dead, until I left it to dry in disassembled state for 4-5 days, then it worked perfectly again. good luck

Some pretty bad advice on here if I do say.

First, letting it dry out is a bad idea, this allows corrosion to develop and damage things further.

Secondly, rice doesn't work and never will work.

You should take it to a repair shop which uses an ultrasonic cleaner, this is the professional way of cleaning up liquid damage. If you can't do this or fancy opening it up yourself, then you can use 99.9% isopropyl alcohol and a toothbrush to clean up excess water and corrosion that has developed, although this isn't as effective as using an ultrasonic cleaner, it is a lot more effective than rice and leaving it to dry and get worse.

How do I know this works? Because I have cleaned up a lot of liquid damaged phones with a fairly decent ultrasonic cleaner, and have had a fairly high success rate. You can also ask actual professionals how they do it, and if they don't mention at least using an ultrasonic cleaner, then they are not cleaning up liquid damaged phones very well. :-)

I fixed mmy ipod touch by immediately soaking the device in 90% rubbing alcohol. This removes the water immediately. Actually I put it in a sealed plastic container with about 200ml of alcohol for about an hour. You need to get the water out asap since there is a battery with charge on it and you are fighting corrosion. Then I dried it in a food dehydrator at 120°F for 24 hours then docked it to my computer and wows it worked. It went through a full wash cycle and was very scratched and the screed had some minor blemishes but it works again.

I have fixed lots of cellphones and ipods by immersing the item in rubbing alcohol for at least 15 minutes to completely get the alcohol in all parts of the item; then completely drying the item; even using a hair dryer. allow 24 hours of drying before attempting to charge the battery. this protocol was suggested to me by an Apple technician in the Annapolis Valley of NS, Canada. Lots of my friends have used it and saved many cellphones, mp3 players, ipods.

would it work days after trying to dry it out? I put mine in rice about an hour after the damage was presumabley done to my ipod, then put it on my charger the next morning, would this affect the results of using rubbing alchohol?

Can you use perfume and does it matter if you left your iPod for like a year

さんによる

purfume??

u cant get rubbing alcohol in the uk!! :(

さんによる

Try and make sure its 99% alcohol and use a soft toothbrush on the connectors, its better if you use an ultrasonic bath with the alcohol but not essential. sooner is better, the longer you leave it the more likely corrosion sets in.

Why not rice? because rice removes the moisture inadequately and temporarily. There are chemicals in water tap water and especially in soapy water. Chemicals left behind may absorb moisture from the air and continue to corrode the metals inside. If the device is not properly cleaned, it will eventually fail!

Even alcohol is not entirely safe because alcohol usually contains a small amount of water and will absorb more from the air.

Nail polish remover and acetone should not be used on plastic items because they are very strong plastic solvents and may dissolve protective coatings and weaken plastics inside the device.

Get a professional to disassemble and thoroughly clean and dry otherwise because the device may fail unexpectedly and permanently even years later. This happened to a close friend who didn't backup her device. Avoid tragedy! Back up your device frequently!

Hi, yes some folks also use a vacuum chamber which also gets the water out from inside the panel.

I've also tried the following to fix corroded logic boards which are otherwise trashed, white vinegar with a very small amount of Lo-Salt (potassium chloride) and hydrogen peroxide which got the corrosion off the two test boards enough to use them again though the connector closest to the battery needed microsoldering.

It also works on dead SD cards after they have gone for a swim.

Pretty much follow bac's advice, if it doesn't work after drying it, try replacing the battery, and you might get lucky. Sometimes it's the logic board, which really sucks. However, other times it's just a display replacement. What I've seen the most is display+battery, and then logic board is pretty much unfixable (it's not worth the time money or effort). A common problem is the screen is not backlit, which means the logic board is damaged.

If it got in the water, wouldn't rubbing alcohol mess it up even more???

Using 99.9% isopropyl alcohol removes water and the impurities with it, because it doesn't leave any minerals behind to corrode anything, it is used a lot to clean up electronics.

it may be a bit late for this, but i experienced this issue twice with my now dead ipod touch 6th gen after it came in contact with the tiniest drop of water. try putting the headphones in and out of the jack, or getting a small cotton bud for your ears and getting a little bit of left over saliva on your tooth, a tINY BIT. LIKE SO TINY IT DOESNT FEEL WET, and try putting it in and out, just like the headphones thing. if the headphone jack hasnt been entirely filled to the brim with the liquid, you can wait it out as i had done. luckily i had mine saved by using about 3 ear buds, putting the headphones in and out of the jack and then waiting out for a while. it may be a very scary experience, i cried the first time it happened to me because i thought i had permanently damaged the ipod i so desperately needed for a concert i was going to later that year, i bought it especially for it with my own money, and i was terrified. try not to be violent when you put things in and out repeatedly, as it can damage the

Apple Support Community:

Turn it off and leave it off.

1. Do NOT attempt to power it on, this will likely permanently damage the device.

2. Place the device in a bag with uncooked rice or silica gel packs and leave it there for at least 48 hrs, 72 hrs

is better.

3. After it has been removed from the bag, attempt to power the device on.

Note: If it powers on and works, you are extremely lucky.

4. If it will not power on or charge, go to Apple and replace it via their Out of Warranty replacement

program.
