How do I fix my iPod nano after I washing machined it?

I accidentally put my iPod Nano in the washing machine, the screen has water in it and doesn't work. The click wheel feels different. Is there anyway to fix it?

that sounds bad - the only way is to disassemble it completely

here is a guide to get the nano apart - but be careful - very tiny parts inside the nano ;-)

the best way would be removing the battery and clean everything with rubbing alcohol, check the connectors if anything is burnt or something like that, if possible - measure the battery - but i think it would have 0v and will not charge.

try to find someone with modern rc cars - the use the same battery type and the have special chargers- charge the nano battery for 5 minutes as a LiFe or NiMh and then as a regular LiPo - when the battery is full, resolder it (oops - i forgot to mention it, the battery is soldered on the logicboard) and maybe the iPod works again
