    I spilled water on mine.  I found this forum with a bunch of ideas to try out:

    Day1:My son's iTouch slipped into sink while water was running...and it got soaked. It was on at the time, and shut off. We dried off immediately, and put in bowl of rice for overnight.
    Day2: Took out of rice, No luck. Put it on the furnace to get some heat for the entire day. Still not no luck. Plugged it in at 11p for first time, and finally some signs of life..screen flickered and went out. iTunes recognized, then lost its connection. Going to leave plugged into computer overnight.
    Day3: TBD

I might have the solution for this but I'm not quite sure. It worked well for me. My iTouch got dropped in water and I took it out right away. You could tell there was water damage from the way the screen lit up. mine stayed on and I didn't know quite what to do but I worked for a day on trying to get all the water out of it and then I plugged it in for a while.

At first though, it wouldn't charge and this went on for a while but since I continually plugged it in, I was able to get it back charging and now it works as well as before. So I say, try plugging it in for a few hours and unplugging it and letting the power drain and plugging it in a again for about a week and if it still doesn't work I don't know what to tell you.

I WASHED my iTouch. Freakin fail on my part. Soap and fabric softener and all. At first it didnt want to turn on. at all. Plugged it in and nothing. 1 month later I plugged it in to my PC just for kicks. It worked! How? I don't know. I say give it time to dry and re-circuit itself or something. Good luck out there

    Could be that the logic board is broken. If you're out of warranty, somebody has to open the device and replace the part. The part is available on ebay. Here's a guide on how to disassemble an iPod touch Maybe a tech savy friend can do it for you

Euro Pro X 1750 psi Pressure washer won't start. It's plugged in and water is attached. it was fine last time i used it.Now it makes a short noise like it wants to start, but doesn't.

Check the nozzle to see if is plugged. If water can" pass thru , it won't read a water pressure drop and turn on the pump motor.

Dropped in glass of water, dried it out, it turns on, but all the apps and music downloaded is gone. Is there anyway to get the apps and music back? They were download from the itouch not through itunes.

there is generally no way to bring things back from the itouch, you will have to download them to the itouch from your computer or though itunes.

All my music and videos are gone and the screen is messed up from the inside. I dropped my itouch in the sink of water for one second and immediately dried it but it seems to has some problems what should...

1) Sell it on eBay to help cover the cost of a new iPod, you'll probably be able to get 50-70 dollars for it.


2) Find and pay someone either on eBay or another website who are able to fix water damaged iPods.

My son dropped his itouch in water and now it does not work

sometimes, putting it in rice and leaving it overnight dries it off and works, but i would highly recommend taking it to the apple store or talking to an apple representative

Cannont transfer podcasts to itouch from itunes

It could be a bad file. If you're resetting your device, and then adding you music and such back, there may be some bad song, or app that is corrupting your device. On my Mp3 player, it would get stuck on a song that wasn't really there, so I found some corrupt goofy Weird Al song, removed it, and it never happened again.

Water in my itouch no response

1. If dropped in water, 90% chance main chips got shorted out.
2. You can attempt back up if pc will even SEE it which isn't likely
3. Back up weekly
4. Export to SD weekly
