Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player
My daughter left her iPod in the car with the sunroof open in the rain several months ago. She said it was dead and would not turn on. I got it from her today and put it in a charger for an hour then did the reset sequence a few times. I got no light but the apple logo on the 3rd or 4th try then got the backlight flickering and heard some sputtering noises from the unit. Now it is back to being totally dead. Please offer some suggestions. Also, I have not found anything giving me instructions for opening the unit so I can make sure there is no water left in it.

Most likely the board is fried however if you're lucky only the hard drive is dead and that is an easier cheaper fix

Once it's been wet inside you are pretty much out of luck. iPods are mini computers. If any of the circuitry inside got wet then the connections will start to corrode and it will be junk. You should not try to open it unless you know what you are doing because you can damage the connectors.
Your best bet is to sell it on E-Bay as broken/for parts or repair and state that it has been wet. Someone will buy it for the parts and you can use whatever money you get to buy a new one.
Sorry to have to tell you the bad news.......
