iPod wont turn on after in washing machine

The other day I left my iPod in my pocket when I put it in the washing machine, I found it a day later stone cold in the pocket and tried turning it on in hopes it still worked, however all I got was a black screen. I left It a couple of days and put it on charge and after about 1hr tried turning it back on again, the Apple logo came up for about 1/4 of a second and then disappeared. Since then it's not even done that. Is there something I can do to fix or a part I could replace or is it worth just buying a new one?

The impurities in the water causes corrosion and provides circuit paths for the electricity which were not in the iPod's operating design and could damage the components. The corrosion starts immediately and is ongoing until it is completely cleaned away

First do not try to charge or to turn on your iPod and then remove the battery as soon as possible from the player to minimize any further damage.

Then you need to dis-assemble the rest of the device and clean all the affected parts using Isopropyl Alcohol 99%+ (available at electronics parts stores) to remove all traces of corrosion and water. If possible do not use "rubbing alcohol" as in some cases this is only 70% IPA or less, can contain additives and is not as effective. If you do have to use it check the label to verify the amount of IPA. The higher the percentage of IPA the better

Here is a link that describes the process. Electronics Water Damage

As always with electronics, especially surface mounted pcb be gentle when handling and especially when brushing away the corrosion. You do not want to remove any components from the board. Remove the shields that may be covering some components as the water may have got in under there. The ends of any flex cables and their connectors need to be cleaned as well

Hopefully after you have done all this the player might possibly work correctly again.

Here is a link to the ifixit iPod Nano 6th Generation guide(s) for repairing your device.

If this process seems too daunting, take your iPod to a reputable, professional electronics or phone repair service, experienced in liquid damage repair and ask for a quote for a repair. If you decide to do this, do it sooner than later.
