Don't plugged it in yet. I would let it air dry first or blow dry on low heat.

Get a ziplock baggy and fill it about half way with white rice and put your Zune in it. Cover the Zune and let it sit for a few days.
The rice will draw out the moisture and dry it out. Then you can try to plug it in and hope for the best.

I think he plugged it in already. Get some rice, stuff it in a plastic ziploc bag and put your Zune in the bag, close the bag up.

With any luck the rice will dry up the water/moisture inside within 3 days. If not, I read somewhere that the 16gb was going for $150.

Future note: Do the rice thing before you turn your device on. I had a phone go through the wash and 3 days later after the rice trick, it was working like new.

Edit: Dang u lasher. Stole my thunder.

Did your wife wash it, or did you leave it in your pocket

All kidding aside, good luck reviving your Zune, I've had bad luck reviving submerged electronics but the best of luck to you.

You can open the back cover to speed up the process (provided you have the necessary tools, you can use the same tri-wing screw driver for Nintendo DS/Wii or using the melting-plastic trick )

Ha well I guess its not completely her fault, since I did leave it in my pocket =) Its in a bag of rice right now, guess ill check up on it in a few days. Not sure if these are built as well as some of the old nokias, but Ive dropped a couple in the toilet and they ended up working after a little dry time. Thanks for the input, ill let you guys know.

Here's some smart DJ suggestions for you when you <hopefully> get it running again....

* Various artists - Dirty Laundry
* Psychostick - I hate doing Laundry
* Gnarls Oakley - My iPod is so much cooler than your Zune
* Tyler Firestone - Left inside my pocket
* Split Enz - That was my mistake
* Grover WASHINGton Jnr - Then and Now
* Spiritualised - Fcuked up inside!
* Soul Coughing - $300
* Ryan Hartt - Empty Wallet
* Rick Nelson - Don't Blame it on your wife
* Antic Clay - Clean Blues
* Swink - Too late for Regrets

At least you have an excuse to go and get a 64GB model now

I'm going to pessimistic for a second. If it is damaged how much would it cost to repair? Where would i send it? Would it make more sense to just get a new 16 gig?

If it was on when it went through the was (or on standby), it probably means that the circuit board is fried, among other things. I'd say it would probably make more sense to buy another 16GB if that's the case
