Your fu.k.d cause Apple won't replace units damaged by water.  Wipe as much of the water off as you can and don't use a blow dryer cause that will fry the circuits.  Go to the store and get you a bottle of alcohol.  No, I'm not talking about the 3 wise men.  Isopropyl 80 or 90% is what you require.  Fill up a container with the alcohol and throw the ipod in and let it soak for 5-10 minutes max.  Then take the thing out and dry off the thing and let it sit to air dry for about an hour or two.  Before you ask, "Man, what you been smokin?"  Note that alcohol rapidly dissipates and will remove the majority of water that is inside the ipod.  Then fill a zip lock bag full of white uncooked rice and I'm not talking Uncle Bens or Minute rice.  You gots ta use the real sh.t Asians are eating all the time.  Before you ask, "Man, what you been drinkin?  Note that restaurants put rice in their salt shakers to remove moisture.  Let the ipod sit in the zip lock bag for a week so the rice can do its thing.  Then take the ipod out and see if its alive.  If you still are unhappy with the results, then go on you tube and seek the advice of a shady hispanic guy who will show you how to beat the system and have Apple give you a brand spankin new ipod.

Also Apple know if your iPod/iPhone has been water damaged by a water damage indicator.

If you look into the bottom of the headphone socket (you might need a light) you will either see a white or red indicator.

Red means water damaged and Apple won't replace it
White is ok, and you will get it replaced ;-)

SOURCE: 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 for repair.

My son's 2nd generation ipod touch received water damage and now the touch screen does not can I fix this..need it fixed for antother child

Hi tonyacompton..

If you ever find that you have to deal with a wet device, don't just abandon it.
Instead, try the following method to repair the water damage:
Take it apart as much as you can. Take out the battery, the memory card and whatever else can be easily disassembled. (Just make sure you can put it back together.)
Store the parts in an air-tight container covered with either dry rice, silica gel packets or kitty litter. These will absorb the moisture from your electronics device, leaving it water-free.
If no rice, gel packets or kitty litter are available, try using a vacuum to **** the water out.
DO NOT blow-dry the parts, it will only force the water farther in and cause more damage.

How to check if the water sensor on an iPod Touch Is Broken

<p>The iPod Touch comes with one year warranty from Apple in a wrong or defective hardware and software, but the warranty does not cover liquid. IPod Touch built after 2006 contain an integrated liquid contact indicator senses the presence of water and is used to indicate when the device was damaged by water. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Find the headset at the top left of the iPod Touch. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Looking directly down the hole of the connection. Make sure you are in a well lit room to clearly see the hole. An amplifier this can be used for a better view of the headset. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Look for a small dot that normally appears white or silver. The point will change color, and was half or completely red or pink when the phone is in contact with water. <br />

I have water damage to my Apple iPod Touch, I have a warranty, but I don't want to go through the process of them fixing it

Unfortunately, your warranty only covers factory defects. What you are looking for is Insurance on the device, which in turn, would cover water damage and other accidents.

I am afraid your Warranty will not cover the repairs or replacement of your iPod.

My 2g ipod touch is bricked on the apple screen and i dont know what to do

Your ipod can go into paper weight or brick mode after dropping it or exposing it to moisture ie. water. Look down the headphone jack with a flash light and see if the little rectangular water sensor is white or pink. White means that your good and pink means the water sensor has been triggered and the unit has been exposed to excessive moisture. Here's the kicker- Apple's 1 year warranty does not cover water damage so your fu.kd. But if your still within your year warranty or you got an extended warranty, then just take the thing back to the Apple store and exchange it out if the water sensor is not pink.

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 u fix an ipod touch when its not letting u unlock it

You probably got water or humidity damage so your screen is unresponsive.  Apple won't fix this thing if you got water damage.
Try opening up itunes on your laptop, plug your ipod into the usb, and choose to set up a new user name.  It will erase and re-install with your new user name.
