You can hold down the power button and home button at the same time for over five seconds. The iPod should reset itself.

Check in the Preferences app. In the General tab, you should see "System Updates" or something like that. If you aren't presented with an update, then the latest update isn't compatible with your model.

The iPod changed the face of the music industry.
Through Apple's device, the use of MP3 music players became a widespread phenomenon, and remains the standard mode of mobile musical enjoyment today.
Its interface was easy to learn and use, and you could store several gigabytes' worth of songs into the device.
Eventually, as new iPod models came out, mobile movie and picture viewing became much more accessible.
With the release of the iPod Touch, another feature was introduced--the ability to connect to wireless Internet.
If you own a 3rd Generation iPod Touch, it's easy to get your Wi-Fi working.
Go to "Settings" and find the Wi-Fi selection. Turn Wi-Fi on.
Wait as the Wi-Fi will detect possible networks connections within range.
Look for the network you wish to connect to and press it.
If it's not on the list, go to "Wi-Fi," select "Other" and type the name of the network.

If a password is required, click on the "Security" option, select the type of security, enter the password and press "Join."
You may have to pay a fee before you can establish a connection to a secured network.

Press the arrow button beside the name of the network to adjust the settings.
The network may have other requirements such as entering a client ID or static IP address.
The network administrator should be approached for these details.

Monitor the Wi-Fi icon at the top of the screen.
The more bars that are highlighted, the stronger the signal.
Get closer for a stronger signal.

The iPod touch is not only a music player, but also your gateway to the world via the Internet. In order to connect to the iTunes music store and use the email and web-browsing features of your iPod touch, you must first connect to a wireless network.

Touch the "Settings" icon on the home screen of the iPod touch. The iPod does not require you to press down very hard to select an icon. Using your finger, lightly tap the application you want to activate it. Choose the Wi-Fi setting and turn it on. You may need to wait a moment while the device locates available networks. Select the wireless network you want to connect to. You may have more than one option based on your location. If you are prompted for a password, enter it and touch "Join." Opt to have your iPod alert you when there is a new network you can join. This can be useful if you are no longer in range of a network you have previously used. To receive these messages, turn on the "Ask to Join Networks" feature. Tell the iPod touch to "forget" a wireless network that you no longer want to use, so it will not automatically try to connect you. Under the Wi-Fi settings, tap the ">" button next to the network you want to delete and then touch "Forget this network." Expect that some wireless networks detected by your iPod touch will ask you to sign up for a fee-based service. If this is acceptable to you, open up the Safari application from the home screen. You will be taken to a website that explains the terms of service and accepts credit card payments for wireless Internet access.
When the iPod touch was introduced in 2007, it quickly became one of the best-selling portable music players on the market. What separated the iPod touch from its competitors was its ability to access the Internet through Wi-Fi networks. If you're ready to surf the web and send e-mail with your new iPod touch, it's easy to get connected. Just a few taps, and you'll be on your way.

Tap the "Settings" icon on your iPod touch's home screen. Tap the arrow on the far right of the "Wi-Fi" bar on the "Settings" screen. Move the slider on the "Wi-Fi" bar to the "On" position. Move the slider on the "Ask to Join Networks" bar to the "On" position if you wish to be notified before your iPod touch connects to a new network. Moving the slider to the "Off" position means you must select a Wi-Fi network manually before your iPod touch will connect. Press the "Home" button to return to your iPod touch's home screen. You will see the Wi-Fi icon appear in the top left corner of your screen with up to four bars illuminated to indicate that Wi-Fi is available and to show its signal strength. iPod touch Support and ios support

Perform a straightforward reset procedure on your iPod Touch if you are experiencing issues like freezing, unresponsive apps, delays or other other problems. Carry out a reset if your iPod doesn't respond when you attempt to restart the unit. This type of reset will not erase any content from your iPod Touch.

Locate the "Sleep/Wake" button on the top of the iPod Touch. Press and hold down the "Sleep/Wake" button and the "Home" button simultaneously. Continue to hold both buttons for at least 10 seconds. Release the "Sleep/Wake" button and the "Home" button when the Apple logo appears on the screen, indicating the device has been reset. Hope it helps.

Set it in front of a fan... It may take quite a while for it to dry out since it's darn near air tight. Set it at different angles and positions too to allow for water to escape.
