Clay, it sounds like the digitizer might have went bad when it received water damage. Touch screens are usually 3 parts. The 1st part (the part you actually touch with your fingers) is the outer glass. The 2nd part is the actual LCD that brings you picture. The 3rd part is the digitizer which is plugged in with a small ribbon cable and allows the LCD to sense your touch. This problem is pretty common even without water damage. You can actually purchase a new digitizer on Ebay for between $10-12 with free shipping. Whether or not you decide to attempt the replacement yourself will depend on your background with this type of equipment. It isn't extremely hard but I only say that because this is my area of expertise. You most likely have several areas of expertise that would boggle my mind. If you are unsure at all about installing it yourself, contact someone in your area that you trust to do this. I hope this helps you! Don't forget to vote thumbs up if it does.

The light on my ipod touch dose not turn on?


hold the sleep button for about 5-6 seconds and restart it. Try that a few times, and then if that does not work, connect it to the computer and hit the 'restore' button and see if it will restore the light. Try to charge it also, sometimes that will help.

My htc touch pro freezes and sometimes wont let me text.


Well u can start with reseting the phone from the little red button next to the charger piece. If that doesnt work, go to your company store and they should give you a brandnew one and transfer all you contact, cal ecents, ect. They can transfer everything except ur txts and emails. I hope it all workds out.
