Sorry, that will not help. When I look at water damaged iPod, 99% of the time something inside has been shorted out and has to be replaced to fix it (that is if the other parts are still working okay). From what you are describing about it not having power on its own, it sounds like the logic board inside was fried. This part can be replaced, but it would be about the same price to fix as it would be to buy a new 8GB 2nd Gen.
There are two 5th gen iPods, A1136 model is the older 2005 model, not the later 2006 model.
Here is Apples link: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1353#ipodfifth2 which will show the differences, but not by model number. The reason I know this model number is the first 5th gen 2005 is because I have one. Also older 2005 should have '2005' engraved on rear.
If you did a hard reset and it still doesn't connect, not even to
windows explorer, most likely you have a broken logic board or broken hard drive. Try to listen to the HDD when it is spinning - is there a repetivie sound? If so, it's a defective HDD, if the hdd spins smoothely mostlike a broken logic board, you can
try to replace it yourself, there are guides websites online that teach you iPod repair skills, if you're already a little tech savy.
looks like at least you're going to need to do a restore. if you still can't sync music after the restore you may need a new logic board. there are websites that show you how to replace the logic board.
You might have to replace the logic board if you mean sound isn't coming from the dock you connected to. If sound doesn't come out of your headphones/jack, you need to replace the headphone jack, which is easier than to replace the logic board, if your going to do it yourself.
The website I linked to also offers repair services to do the replacing for you.
