How to repair my wet iPod Classic
My iPod doesn't connect in any way. I took two days ago to listen to some music and then...I saw that it was soak into my spinach liquid from the broken bottle I had in my backpack. So at first, I pressed the play button and the central button, but there was no response.
Later at home I read I shouldn’t do that. I tried to put into a rice bottle, and now (two days later) everything stays as usual.
Searching on the internet, I come up whit this website and now I achieve to open the front and rear parts and I see some connectors are dirty of that dry spinach liquid. There are more damp on some surfaces.
-What I need to do to repair my iPod by my own hands?
-Can Have I any possibility that my iPod still alive?
-How can I clean the little parts of the green circuit?
Below the images of the most damaged parts rounded with red circle which you can see the spinach liquid dried
And I think the front part of the logic board is damaged too
and the bottom connnector sould will be as well
Vicente, the first thing that I would suggest is that you follow this guide. Once you cleaned your iPod as suggested, replace the battery. After that reassemble your iPod and see what you get. To answer your three part question, repair it with the help of these Guides. Yes, there is a good chance your iPod can be resuscitated, but follow the cleaning guide and use high percent isopropyl alcohol and a soft brush. The only thing you really need to watch out for is the battery connector on the board. It does have a tendency of breaking of the. So, be gentle. Do not submerge your hard drive. Hope this helps, good luck.
