Forget the previous ******** suggestions.  Turn your ipod off immediately, dry it up as much as you can, then throw it in a ziplock bag filled to the top with rice and leave it there for a week and don't touch the thing.  You will notice that restaurants fill their salt shakers with rice.  The rice is there to totally absorb all traces of moisture.
Then look down your earphone jack for a rectangular or semi circle shape between two bronze or copper posts.  If this thing is pink then your screwed, because it tells Apple that the unit has been damaged by water and their warranty won't cover it.  If this thing is white and your within your year warranty, you can just take it back to the Apple store and they will exchange it out for you after looking down the headphone jack for what seems like eternity.  They will reject you if they see any traces of pink so you better hope you get someone who is color blind.  Also, you need to play dumb and ignorant or maybe dumb and dumber when they ask you whats going on.  If you even utter the word humidity, water, damp, or H20 you will be rejected by Apple.
And for Pete's sake don't send this thing in, cause the Apple nerds will have time to open the whole unit up and check ALL the water sensors.  You will be rejected if any one of them is pink.

    I forgot to mention that the rice has to be dry and uncooked. Were not talking Minute Rice or Uncle Bens. You gotta use the real thing baby.

Open the iPod and clean and dry it out as much as you can. Here's a guide on how to disassemble an iPod touch. Maybe a tech savy friend can do it for you. If you want to pay to have a service do it for you there are third party iPod Repair Services.

    my i pod touch fell in a sink of water it submerged it completely and was in there for about 5 seconds, i needed a quick solution so i tryed using a hair dryer which was okay, but i needed something quicker. leaving it in a bowl of uncooked rice could be ok if you are patient, but if not hold the home screen and on/off switch at the top of your i pod at the same time for 5 seconds or until it turns on. this will most likely work. damage to ur i pod could be more internal. if so consult an apple professionalist.

For clarity, i want to add some words. there are little ICs inside. They run on tiny amount of current provided by the battery. If anytime they get sinked into water, water gets between the pins of ICs . And keeping it on or turning on makes flow current between wrong pins.

You must not turn it on untill it is fully dry, or it may turn unusable.

I JUST INSTALLED A TITAN N-120 TANKLESS HOT WATER HEATER AND IT WORKS FINE FOR ALL THE SINKS BUT IT IS NOT PROVIDING HOT WATER TO THE SHOWER AND THE WATER FLOW HAS DIMINISHED IN THE SHOWER AS WELL.


It's doubtful your water heater unit is the problem. There is simply no reason for it to only work on sinks unless some how the pipe size was drastically reduced coming out of the unit so sinks got plenty of hot water but the shower does not. Take a second look at the installation. The pipe should not be less than 1/2" coming out. If that's OK then consider a clog or valve problem.

My ipod fell into the toilet, what should I do?


Get your iPod in a bag of rice, and keep it there for maybe a few days, it should **** out all the moisture, hopefully it wasn't on when it was dropped in, but give it a shot.

I dropped my ipod touch in the sink and it now it doesn't work


to fix this, you're going to need your ipod, a plastic zip-lock bag, and uncooked rice. first, open the bag and fill it halfway with uncooked rice. then put your ipod in the middle of it all. then zip the bag and let it sit for about a day. the rice should have absorbed all the water by then. most of the times, this will work. but sometimes, the ipod is damaged beyond repair by the water. good luck
hope this helps ;-)

Fell in water tank


If you can remove or disconnect the battery and let your ipod dry inside an air conditioned room for a week then if it will work you are lucky enough.

Once it is wet water will cause somewhat of a short circuit but if you were able to remove the power from the gadget sooner you might be able to save it. Good luck!

Ipod was exposed to water


pluging the ipod into the computer while wet will damage the device further, take it a part and dry very carefully.
