My ipod 160gb got wet and know it wont turn on but when I try to charge it the screen blinks

1st - how long ago did it get wet?
2nd - have you stored it in a bag of uncooked rice for at least 24 hours? (You can wrap it in a tissue to keep dust out of the dock)

If you haven't done the second above - regardless of how long ago it got wet - you should try this BEFORE trying anything else using electric current!! You may do more damage if there's water inside the case.

My ipod was in my bag and a water bottle emptied into my purse. The ipod with in a skin, which was wet. I am unable to get anything on my ipod, the screen is black and will not turn on. It will not...

Try putting the Ipod in a ziploc bag with some uncooked rice. The rice will absorb any moisture still trapped inside. Leave it for a few days and it might work again. It depends on how long it stayed wet. It worked with my son's Ipod after he jumped into a swimming pool with the Ipod in his pocket. Good Luck

Screen works (dull) but wont light up

It may have gotten wet, to much moister, my daughter had one that just would not turn on, I took it to an apple store where they were able to check it out, and it turns out that it somehow got wet. Yours may not not have fallen in to water, but it could just simply be to much moister got in to it.

This means that the battery had shorted out and its already bad. You need to replace the battery. You can buy replacement battery for your ipod from ebay. its around $10-$15.

Have a great day.

Got wet and won't charge

you should put the iPod into a bowl of DRY rice for at least 24 hours. Making sure that the iPod is completely covered by the rice. This will help pull any remaining moisture from the iPod. After allowing it to dry out completely, reconnect it to your computer. If it does not turn on right away, attempt to reset it. If that fails leave the iPod touch connected to your computer for at least an hour and attempt the reset again. If at this point it still does not work please do let me know. Below I have posted a step by step on restoring your iPod touch just in case you need the information. :) ---------------------------------------------------

To reset Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears

Husband got Christmas ipod Classic wet

Hi what seemed to happen here is your HDD drive got wet and crashed. Yes take it back. Next time this happens the second it gets wet put it in a bowl of white rice. The rice absorbs the liquid and all better. But this time you can't do it. But yes take it back.

Disply is not coming

I had the same problem. What happened scince the last time it worked? Did it get wet? for me mine got wet in mexico and it only turned on if i plugged it into my ps3 or truck. if this happens to you, its defanately your battery.go to a store like future shop or even HMV, theill let you order a new battery. if the ipod is worse or breaks in the process, send it in to apple if its in the span of your warranty. if it isnt, the repair is almost free its so cheap and shipping is around $20.

Ipod got wet wont hold a charge and wont switch to play list i accidentally left my ipod shuffle in my pocket and then it got wet in the washing machine it was in there for about 30 seconds please help

You probably already have the answer to this, but if you send it to Apple, they may just give you a new iPod. If they even think that it got wet, though, they won't fix it. You will have to replace the battery. There are a number of places that will do that for you. I hopw that helps.
