Today’s accomplishment — iPod brought back to life! March 23, 2013 3:37 pmPosted by Doug McCaughan in : Daily Life, Evan, Family, Of Being Dad
For Christmas, Amy and Evan received iPods. About three weeks ago, Evan’s iPod was in his coat pocket when the coat went through the washing machine. Fortunately it was discovered before going through the dryer. I immediately pried the case open (it is held together with a glue strip) and removed the screws holding the mother board in to lift it for slightly for drying. I grabbed a Tupperware container and put the open device in it, covered with a papertowel, then poured two pounds of rice into the container. Next I went to Amazon to order five new adhesive strip stickers. Today I applied the adhesive strips, replaced all the screws, and snapped the screen back onto the iPod and it started right up! Knock on wood, it appears to be performing as new!
