Try this. Go to a Craft store (Michaels, Crafts Etc. and by some flower drying crystals. (Brand name Silica Gel probably less than $5.00) Drop your iPod in the crystals and leave it overnight. The silica gel should be in a air tight container (Zip loc bar or cookie tin). This is the same stuff that you find packed in electronic and can sometime help recover damp electronics. (As long as you haven't actually shorted it out)

Ipod mini won't work

Hi footguy....When you say "wet", do you mean that it took a short iRinse? Or did it go for an iSwim? Generally, these types of electronic devices, including laptops will of course, shut down when drenched, or upon excess moisture detection. But they also operate properly once 100% dry again. If your iPod did indeed go for an iSwim, you may still have excess moisture. You may want to minimally open it to assist with the exposure of fresh air to accellerate the evaporation. DO NOT use any heated fans or hair dryers. At most, just a plain 'ol fan will do. If you are absolutely confident that it is completely dry, and still experience this issue, you may have to surrender and take it to an iDoctor. Please update your post with any further information and/or your progress.....good luck my friend

The issue here is that you may have damage to the motherboard from the water. The water can not only short out motherboard components but it can also start to oxidize on the surface. In some cases, these units are recoverable but we would need to inspect the board under a scope and try and clean the contacts.

sorry, but you're probably screwed. Once wet, the connections inside start to corrode and then it's junk. Sell it on E-Bay as broken/part/repair. Be honest and let people know that it got wet. The case and a few parts may still be usable. Then take the money you get and buy a used working one off e-bay. you can usually get nanos in good used condition for $80 to $100
