Default How to remove water from your LCD Screen

Well, I thought I should make a thread to save your Zen Vision:M's by telling you how to remove that water from your LCD screen from a bath, dunk in a puddle, etc. Since, you know I was lucky for her replies to fix my player.

And all credits go to ZenChick, the person who helped me and told me what to do. So credits goes to her.

Here it is:

P.S.

This is for people who can't take there player apart. I do not guarantee or responsible that your player is completely fixed or gets ruined.

Thank you very much!

Hi Kevin!

Let me guess - you gave your player a bath!

Okay, short of taking your player apart, the best thing you can do is to stand it on its end, data port down, and leave it like that for 2-3 days. Do not attempt to turn on or charge the player during this time!

Only after you're sure it's completely dry inside, you may try to power it on and assess its condition.

Best of luck!

Well I will do that then for 3 days. Does it has to be in a certain area (like outside in sun, etc.) or can it be inside my house?
Inside the house should be fine.
Any other techniques, tips, etc. are welcomed.
Again, many thanks to the wonderful ZenChick.

EDIT 6/8/07:

Here are some sites I have bookmarked for drying your Vision:M. The links are not all Zen Vision:M, but they are the like or closely similar. NOTE: Some of the methods are different and require opening up the player. To open up the player, search it at www.anythingbutipod.com site

It is confirmed that my player works as of today (June 8, 2007)! (using this thread's method)
Just to raise your morale if you are worried fixing it.

I heard that leaving damp electronics in a jar of rice helps too. Never tried it though!

Yeah, I've heard using kitty litter or those silica packs does the same, but I've never tried it before.

I have used the rice method on a cellphone & a cordless phone. Both items still work as well as before the "bath"

Wow, this is a really late, late response. Um as for the previous messages responded above, I have not tried those.

Also, my Vision:M still works.

Yeah no problem. So you just now took it apart over a year later? At least you didn't give up on it.

Haha, yeah.... pretty much. Never really had the time to actually sit down and be like, "Hey! I got my leathermans here [overkill] and I can do this!" Plus I had a warranty for addtional two years somehow. Lol.

Oh, I never give up. Lol. *insert cheesy line from some testosterone-injected film like an old Rambo movie*

I should really start trying those hacks.

That's understandable.

I hate to say it, but I think my Vision:M is about to go to sleep [basically, the player's functionality is dying].
