Question about Apple iPod 5th Generation
I dropped my ipod in water and have been keeping it in rice for three hours. im afraid the damage is to bad to repair. I was wondering if theres any where I could get it fixed for a reasonable price or a way I could fix the problem myself. please help
This question was asked about three weeks ago. Sorry for the late input. Rice may help and so does time. If it doesn't come back right away, you may need to give it plenty of time - as in days. I would keep it in a slightly warm place. Even if it doesn't seem to work, don't give up on it. It could come back after the battery is completely discharged. Don't try to charge it for a very long time (weeks) unless it shows signs of life to the point you are able to use it again.
Update us on what has happened so far. Did the rice work for you?

Sometimes if you leave it sit for several days or so it will dry out completely and start to work again. I don't recommend charging it or plugging it in for several days or so as if there is still water in it, it may fry some of the chips. It may be beyond repair though.
