How to repair a wet ipod touch


there is no actual repair best thing you can do is to let it dry with the battery removed and a fan blowing on it for a few days. but since its an ipod you cant remove the battery which pretty much means something will be blown unless by fate it wasnt effected. if it doesnt work after that time then you have to determine exactly what is not working. But it would just be best to go to a store and see if it can be repaired under warranty however they do not cover water damage in the warranty.

How do I know when the iPod Touch Is Dead


<p>Any model of iPod Touch includes major upgrades to its predecessor, with little change in physical design. At the time of publication, the iTouch has reached the fourth generation. All models have a button on the side, with a home button at the bottom. Touch screens are similar in size and functionality. Therefore, the symptoms of a dead iPod Touch are the same regardless of which model <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Keep the round "Home" button near the bottom of the iPod. If an application is frozen on the screen, this power to connect and return to the home screen. If you have an iPod Touch 4 or higher, the multi-tasking does not automatically close the app. Instead double tap "Home" button and all recently used applications are listed. Eliminate the problem through a finger on the app "X" appears in the corner. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Reset the iPod by holding down the "Home" and "Power" to disabled. The power button is located on top of the iPod Touch. Do not let go of the buttons to your white Apple logo. This will close the applications that were active and memory. This can be used when the iPod screen is black and can not be activated. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Let the iPod Touch is in a bowl of rice if you suspect water damage. The rice helps to absorb excess water and the problem can determine in a matter of days. Try not to connect the device until it is fully dehydrated. If you've tried everything without success, it is likely that the iPod is dead. <br />

Alright so my ipod touch was dropped in cedar water and was working fine after i let it dry then the next day it is not working at all it wont turn on and the computer doesnt recognize it anymore PLEASE...


it probably is one of 2 things. The battery shorted out or it actually caused water damage later on that night. Downside to apple products is you cant remove the battery when they get wet almost guaranteeing damage. Best thing to do is to send it to a repair center such as this one. They guarantee there work and can fix about any problem that could have arised, but even if you just got it and it may be under warranty apple doesnt cover water damage.

IPOD TOUCH SCREEN NOT DETECTING FINGER - water damage


ahh bummer well there is one fix but ya may not like it sadly you must open the iPod up and expose all the internals to some rice now sadly the finger reader may need to be replaced by apple but the rice trick will help with the rest as for the screen digitizer (the part that lets ya move around the screen) may need replacement as well

Ipod touch (2nd Gen) with water damage


The touch screen is not physically attached to the screen, if water was anywhere near the bottom of the ipod it may have triggered the water damage unit inside the bottom. Water also may have leaked into the unit frying the circuits. You'll have to visit an Apple store or Apple.com/support for repair.

My ipod touch screen is cracked but everything works perfectly


Is it the glass or the display beneath the glass? Cost will depend upon which of these is broken. There are many mail-in services available online, ifixit.com comes to mind. If you are a do it yourselfer, there are tons of videos and step by step instructions out there as well. I recently purchased an LCD display from ebay for an ipod touch, took me about 15 minutes to R&R the part for the device after reviewing videos on youtube.

MY ipod touch has black dots all over the front and the touch screen doesnt work but the menu button does work and it turns on but i cant unlock it after i turn it on... I tried turning it off but since...


If you have black dots one of two things is broken
  1. The Video Controller is broken
  2. The LCD is broken
If you cant use the touch then the issue is a broken or disconnected touch panel (The touch and LCD are two separate components)

This is easily fixed for about $100. I replaced mine after a fatal fall shattered my front glass. and components.

If you are not tech savvy, call Apple they can fix it, but if your not covered by warranty then it'll cost you A LOT!

Ipod touch


Hello bobsomos123,

Even though the product is within the 30 day return / exchange period you will be unable to exchange the product. Damaged products are not accepted for exchanges.

Your local Best Buy® store may be able to assist you in having the product sent out for repair. However since water damage is not covered by any warranty, you would have to pay for those repairs.

Best Regards,
Ken
