Well, you need to take the face cover off and make sure all the internal wires are still connected. If they are make sure they are dry and let it air out with the cover off. If it still doesnt work, then you have a broken ipod and you will have to send it to the factory and they will fix it for a small cost
don't try to turn it on
see if you can shake some of the water out
or tilt it to see if it will drain some water.
Otherwise put the ipod upright and leave it for a day or 2 to let it dry
if you can remove the battery.
it will also need dried the battery may not work again but the ipod should be okay.
I just finished fixing one that had been dropped in a toilet.
I did exactly what i just described i let it stand 36 hours and it now works fine so hopefully yours will be okay too.
let me know and please don't forget to rate
First of all, do not try to power it on, plug it in, or press any buttons. I would flip the hold swith on top so you see orange so none of that happens. You need to be sure that all of it is dry first. However, realize that something probably bumped it enough to turn it on in the wash too, which could have zapped it pretty well. I would let it sit to dry for at least a week. I know it sounds terrible, but you need to be absolutely sure that it is dry. One tiny drop can ruin a whole ipod, if it is not already broken. There should be edges that are barely noticeable, but if you can pry them open with something really thin, without warping the plastic, you could get it open to dry. Just be very careful not to touch anything inside, because oils on your skin can be just as harmful as water. Good luck, and let me know what happens.
Other people have dried out their mp3 players and got it to work sporadically, but the water damage is irreversible. Call Apple and tell them that it just won't work - don't give them the details of how it got there.
nothing realy if you havent swiched it on just stick it a airing cubardto dry out and cross your fingers if this fails then the only place left is the bin as bye the time you get it fixed it would be cheaper to bye a new one
