Itouch will not turn on

I bought my 8gb 2nd gen iTouch in october and it has been great but now it won't turn on and my laptop does not recognise that there is anything connected to the usb and. i cannot reformat/restore it, resetting ~(holding power & home button) does not do anything. anything else i can try before i take it back?

    I got my Itouch not too long ago like a couple months ago and I got a little bit of water on it, but just a mist. I checked the water indicator and it was still white, but my Itouch wont turn on at all and when I try to hook it up to my computer it doesnt show anything. I have tried everything and nothing has worked yet.

Try resetting this thing by holding the home and power button at the same time for ten seconds.  Then release the power button but keep your finger on the home button for ten more seconds.  These touch screens are a bit touchy (sorry for the pun I couldn't help it) with water and humidity.  Don't even look at them and say water or they will freeze up on you.  If the water indicator is still white, then just take the thing back to the Apple store and they will exchange it for a brand spankin new one if your still under your 1 year warranty.

You may have to bring it to the Apple Store. Make sure to bring all your paperwork of ownership or they won't be able to do anything for you. Best of luck.

Does it matter what version of the ITouch I have if I Jailbreak it? I want to purchase the first generation Itouch MPN series: MA623LL/A but I know it's not the latest MPN series, but does it really...

1st gens are easier to jailbreak, as you only need a single program called quickpwn to do it. with 2nd gen, you need to download a .ispw file. good luck
hope this helps ;-)
