On Friday I accidentally left my 1st-generation 2GB iPod nano in my shorts pocket.

My shorts were washed, and so was my iPod. I was scared that I ruined it, so I didn't try to turn it on. Instead I left it in my window to dry over the weekend.

This morning I tried turning it on, and it works! My battery is still fully charged (I charged it the day it got washed).


But the screen still has a little bit of water in it, so I turned it off. Should I let it dry for a few more days and check again for water in the screen?

I would. Maybe put it in front of a fan or something?

I just turned it on and it's dry :D

Is it safe to plug into my computer?

being completely soaked and all that i'd let it dry for a good week before usage really. condensation could still build up if there is a tiny bit of water in the thing. better safe than sorry imo.

good luck and i hope it continues working for a long time :)

Good idea, it doesn't work without plugging it into a charger :(

I'm pretty mad at myself for leaving it in my pocket, I never realized how much I needed the iPod until now.

You do realize the Apple sells clean versions of most songs on iTunes. :D

Let it sit and completely dry out, you should be OK.

It's great to know that your player still works. Maybe the hair dryer will do the job to the screen :rolleyes:

So true. You always realise how much you need stuff until its gone ;)
Check the MR forums for information about electrodes , or something. There is this genius guy on the forum that told something about the electrodes breaking or something after some time. I have no idea, I wish I knew where it was. good luck on the nano and think twice when washing , okay? :p
