Make sure you do not turn it on or keep it on. The internals corrode quickly so you will need to dry it out soon. Best way is to remove the cover however it is a bit tricky. I used a knofe edge to pry it open slightly then slid an old credit card into to small opening and slid it around till most of the lid was free. While keeping the card in place to hold it 1/2 open, placed it on top of the heater vent in my house and let it dry overnight. It now works however the backlight on the display is dead.

if you have already tried a new pair of headphones , and still have same problem . you probably have a bigger problem , i had the same problem with one i bought from pawnshop . i immediately took it back knowing the problem was wear and tear on the audio out jack for headphones . usually happens when people carry there ipod in there pocket and are active , the audio headphone jack ends up breaking or bending insdie . this should work work > http://www.amazon.com/Cables-Go-35508-iPod-Compatible-Connector/dp/B000J022G6 AND THiS http://www.amazon.com/Cables-Go-35508-iPod-Compatible-Connector/dp/B000J022G6 YOU COULD ALSO CALL APPLE to see if they jave anything else like this.
Yes there is something you can do. Put rice in a sealable container and place your ipod in the rice. try to cover the ipod completely. the rice is a good sponge for water and it is almost the only way you can fix a waterlogged ipod.
If you've been trying to turn it on, then it's unlikely to work again.
If anything like that happens again, "DON'T TURN IT ON". Take the item
apart carefully keeping the screws together and leave the parts spread
out in a warm dry place like an airing cupboard for about a week. Then
put it back together and cross your fingers.
Hi, 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.
my nephew was thrown into a stock tank by his friends, he had his ipod in his pocket...
also did not work. I brought it home left in my car on the floorboard, for 2 very hot days.
Then remembered it was still in the car... not sure if the heat from the sun helped, but couldn't hurt
Brought it inside noticed the charger plug-in area had built up corrosion, carefully cleaned it with a dry swab, thin rag, and made sure all the plating was free of corrosion... earphone input, etc
then I held down the play button (top) + select (middle) button till the apple appeared on the screen.
p.s. it's been awhile, it may also be the stop and play or stop and select. if at first you don't succeed, you know the rest. trying all of these options should not harm the ipod... proceed with caution.
Long story,short. It is still working today.
Ouch! Unfortunately, the Video iPods are more fragile, electrically, than most (and there's a lot of static and heat in a dryer). Also, the hard drive probably didn't appreciate being tumble-dried! If you want to attempt to repair it, first try a new logic board from iFixit. They have parts and free step-by-step repair instructions. You may also need a new hard drive. After attempting to replace both, it's not worth saving, unfortunately (you can get a refurbished Video iPod from Apple's site for roughly $200).
