There is no calcium in vodka, nor are any of the compents pron to rust.

parts of the board may corrode, but more then likely turning it on when wet shorted/fried a chip

you cant' fix it :( better off just buying a new one.

You live for your iPod.
It's what you listen to in the car, as you walk into work or during your classes, and you plug it into speakers for music in your home.
But you just dropped it into a puddle or into a pool or down the toilet.
Now, you're wondering if you can save your iPod

Get the iPod out of the water and dry it off so there's no standing water on it.
Turn it off. Turning it on while there's water inside it will fry the insides.

Place it in a warm, dry place.
Give it a few days off before turning it back on.
Turn it over occasionally to prevent water from pooling.
Some experts recommend blow-drying it for a few minutes every couple of hours with the blow-dryer set on low.
Try putting the iPod in a bag of rice for a few days.
The rice absorbs the water inside the iPod.
See if your warranty covers your iPod. Usually warranties don't cover water immersion, but if your iPod still doesn't work, it doesn't do any harm to check before you buy a new one.

Many people find that at one time or another, an electronic device becomes wet.
Whether it's because of a spilled glass, a rain puddle or pool water, water does serious damage to devices such as touch screen phones and tablets.
Water damage also voids many product warranties.
Use these techniques to minimize or eliminate the damage done by water.
If you learn such tips and act swiftly, you may be able to save your touch screen from serious damage.
Turn off the device immediately.
This vital step prevents the electronics from shorting because of the water, as it cuts off the electricity to the important parts of the component's interior.
The longer the device is left on after exposure to water, the greater the chance of water ruining the circuit systems inside the device, which cannot be recovered.

Remove the battery and any other removable parts.
The object here is to create as many venues for the water to leave the device.
Sometimes this may mean just the battery, which is often sufficient.
If the touch screen device has a flip feature, open it as much as possible.


Dry the outside of the device completely.
Use a paper towel or cloth to pat down the device with care, so as not to increase the amount of water entering the innards of the touch screen.
This prevents water from entering through seams or crevices in the device susceptible to water seepage.


Place the device in a bowl of rice or silica gel packets.
Cover it completely in the rice or silica, both of which are highly effective at absorbing excess moisture.
Leave the device completely submerged in the bowl for at least 72 hours for maximum absorption.


Remove the device and replace the battery.
Once you have left the device for as long as possible in the bowl, it's important to test out the device again.
Attempt to turn on the device.
If it does not power up, it is likely broken beyond simple repair.

Got wet and it works but no back light - the screen is really dark


Simply its wet and damaged and your lucky its working. You can try leaving it over night in a bowl of rice just drowned in the rice. Dont add water or anything else just rice. The rice works as an absorbant and it may remove that extra water that hasnt been able to try because it is inside the ipod.

Ipod nano went through the wash


its gone (unless through some fluke it survived) they are NOT made to come in contact with water. (don't leave one out in the rain either) most electronics CANNOT continue operation after being washed or getting wet unless they specify otherwise (even water proof electronics may not survive the wash) just a friendly warning.

Artist Link


Sorry to hear about your problem.

The only solution I can suggest is not easy and you need to be confident around electronics.

The following web-site shows how to dismantle a Sony NW-A1000 player:

http://www.fogma.co.uk/electronics/337.html

At this point, you could try getting your artist-link button back into place, or just remove it.

I really don't see any other option here. The cavity of the button is too small and awkward to yank it out from the outside, and not butcher your player's case. Good luck! And remember, if you have to open the case, thousands have done it before you!
