DON"T TURN IT ON AGAIN UNTIL YOU KNOW IT IS COMPLETELY DRIED OUT!!!!

Sometime electroncis can be salvaged if they are not turned on again until after they are dry.

The electrolytes...(sugars, salts) can cause the electric current flowing through the device to arc accross connections causing a short. It may be too late to save your iTouch, but for the future if you can dry out the device before trying to turn it on again with a blow dryer or napkins or whatever you have handy it may save it.

Try drying it out and then turning it back on...it may or may not work as the damage may have been done already.

I hope this helps you in the future. Good Luck!

My v-touch got wet and my batterie takes time to charge but when its all charged and i take off the charger it discharges again


If the battery got wet, that could be your problem. I would suggest you get a new battery and try that. I know that my daughters cell phone went in the drink and the phone was fine, but the battery was toasted.

I hope this helps you.

Itouch connection and charge problem


The problem could be that something inside got damaged when you dropped it. If its still under Apple's limmited warranty you can send it in and they will replace it.

Hope this helps!

Will not recharge. screen absolutely blank and no


The problem can be in one of two places:

1: the power source (computer, wall charger, whatever you're using to charge)

2: your iTouch


If you have a second charger, or car charger, or can borrow a friend's charger, try using that first. If you're able to get the green "Charging" battery with an alternate charger, then your iTouch is fine and you just need a new (cheap!) charger for it.

If your iTouch still doesn't charge with a known-good charger, then your best bet is to find the closest Apple Store and take it in for testing there. When my iTouch stopped connecting to WiFi networks, they tested it to verify the problem and handed me a new replacement on the spot.

Good luck, and let me know if this helped!

Itouch got wet, now it is showing brown spots on the screen. What do I do?


unfortunately since you got it wet Apple won't replace the product. Maybe if you leave it near a radiator for a while it may evaporate and go, or it might be a stain depending on what liquid it was. If what i said does not work, you may have to pay for it to be fixed.

I just bought an ITouch, but cannot get it to work. It is just a black screen and will not show up in my ITunes. Any suggestions?


try resetting the itouch - press and hold the home botton and the sleep/wake button at the same time for about 10 seconds. If it does not come back to life and the battery is charged, you will need to take it in for service
