Well, I got water on my Itouch (8g) about a week ago. When you look inside where the headphone jack goes it is pink not white so apparently it has some slight water damage. Apple will not replace. I have plugged it into the ipod charger that can be plugged into the wall hopping that it will heat up and dry the excess water up. I finally got the image on the screen that shows the (when its charging) battery charging and says slide to unlock. I try to slide the little bar but my Itouch is not responding to me. HELP!

sounds like headphone jack is either dirty or loose in the unit or a possible blown fuse.
if still under warrenty I would get it serviced if not then if you feel comfortable opening it up and looking around the inside of the unit around the sounds output jack then you can try that and see if you can find any blown or burnt problems around there loose connections.
sounds like the typical ipod and ipod touch common situation. It seems to be the dreaded headphone jack on the bottom or top of the device has gone belly up. You can either take it to your local apple store or look online and search your problem and see if anyone else has the same issues you have and see what can be done.You can send it to ipodsquad.com to get repairs or check your local apple store.
DO NOT turn it on, it will short circuit extremely sensitive circuitry inside your iTouch turning into a useless paperweight! Get a tupperware type of container big enough to put your iPod in and completely immerse it in DRY rice and seal it in there for at least a couple of days. The rice will absorb any and all moisture inside the container as well as inside your iPod. Online there is a place called Rapid Repair that specializes in iPod repairs. They will run a free diagnostic on your iTouch and tell you if it survived. Their web address is http://www.rapidrepair.com/. I hope that helps
Try playing with the headphone plug, until you can also hear the right channel and also try a different set of headphones as it is probably a matter of an intermittent headphone jack, or plug, owing to sudden snatching of the headphone plug from same, a very common problem.
Eliminate this cause before submitting your Touch for much more expensive remedies
You might be able to get it looked at under warranty if it's less than a year old.
Otherwise, have a look at this:http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/First-Look/iPod/iPod-Touch
You'll need some tools to do it, but they can be bought from the iFixIt site.
If it's jammed in there really badly you might need to replace the headphone jack itself, which may be part of the logic board. Could be a pretty expensive repair job if you choose to DIY. I'd definitely see if Apple will fix it either under warranty or for a fee. Much easier.
Anyway, iFixIt has all the parts for the iPod Touch here: http://www.ifixit.com/Products/Touch-1st-Gen/132
The easiest way to download to your iTouch is directly to your iTouch via the Apple Store. The Apple Store icon is already on your iTouch. Just make sure you are near an internet connection via Airport or Wi Fi. Click on "Download" on the selected app, and then wait a couple of seconds. Your iTouch will indicate when the download is done and the app is installed. You will see the new icon on your your screen page.
If you install from your computer, you will have to plug your iTouch into the computer and use the iTunes app to control what you download.
I hope that helps.
