iPod Shuffle in the Laundry

Hi people,

Is there anyway to fix an ipod shuffle thats been in the laundry? I know this is a really stupid question, but I was just wondering if something will work. Is there a water thing in the shuffle like the ipod touch?

Just let it dry for a couple of days before you try to use it again. There isn't much to the shuffle, so it might make it through without damage.

ditto that. it might still work. if anything, the battery might be shot, so you could look into getting a new battery. I think you still have hope.

1) Get Tupperware
2) Get back of white rice
3) Put white rice in tupperware
4) Put Shuffle in tupperware surrounded on all sides by white rice
5) Close tupperware lid
6) Wait a few days

These steps have saved literally 20 gadgets from certain doom in the past few years. Good luck.

Yeah, the rice trick works pretty well.

What gen shuffle is it? The 3rd especially is pretty much nothing internally so it might have a good chance of working again.
