Anyone know if this possible? And if so where?
My husband didn't empty his pockets and I put his jeans, and IPOD nano through the wash...
It's dried out now, but isn't working.
On a separate note, I have a portable dvd player about 3 yrs old, Sony, and that too has conked out. Is there anywhere locally that does that kind of repair?
You can buy a replacement battery from Maplins and change it yourself, it makes the warranty invalid, but if you've had it for more than a year then it's out of warranty anyway. You can download instructions on how to change the battery from the internet. I've never had to do it but friends of mine have and now theirs are as good as new.
I think that Ipods are actually only made to last a year, after which time they will start going wrong and you'll have to buy a new one - I'm sure I read a quote from Apple somewhere that said that. I have a mini Ipod and the battery lasts for about 25 minutes before going dead. If I were to buy a new mp3 player, it would absolutely definitely not be an Ipod.
Have you tried re-installing the factory settings? I have just done that with mine and it fixed it. Probably a different problem though, mine kept flicking through the same songs, but not playing them properly.
What have you done with the old one? has it been recycled, sold on, freecycled? taken apart into its constituent pieces and re-used some how? or was it just left in a draw to be forgotten about, or even worse, thrown in the trash?!
it's not you i'm ranting at - it's society in general that's getting me riled - or maybe it's turning 30 that's making me a grumpy 'old' man!
