Question about Apple iPod touch
I have an ipod touch well I had it charging by my bedside and like a dummy my boyfriend accidentally knocked over my water and I think water got inside the ipod....so the next day I was having problems connecting to WiFi & usually I have not problem but then the touch screen started acting funny.....I tried to plug it in the wall to see if that would help and it said that the plug could not detect it.....I have tried to restart it and it doesnt do anything it doesn't detect my finger at all is there a solution???? or do I just have to give up on my ipod??? SOMEONE PLEASE HELP!!!
Ahh bummer well there is one fix but ya may not like it sadly you must open the iPod up and expose all the internals to some rice now sadly the finger reader may need to be replaced by apple but the rice trick will help with the rest as for the screen digitizer (the part that lets ya move around the screen) may need replacement as well

press and hold the home and power buttons, when it turns off DO NOT let go of the home button continue holding until it restores itself then connect it to your computer and restore it. unfortunately it will erase everything.

I just purchased Tunes Tool 2.0 today. I hoped to use it to transfer songs from my Windows iPod video to my MacBook. When I installed Tune Tools, the same problem occurred that you all were having; It could not detect my iPod and gave me a notification about a null iPod. I figured out how to fix this, and all my songs were able to be transfered onto my mac flawlessly. The steps I used are listed below.
1) Open Tune Tools and iTunes. 2) Plug in your iPod. 3) In iTunes, click the summary tab (if not already selected) 4) On the Summary page, check the box that says "Enable Disk Use" 5) A message will pop up, click OK 6) Open Tune Tools, and Your iPod's library should be there. If not, you may have to reconnect your iPod. 7) You will have to manually highlight all the songs you want to be transfered from your iPod to your computer. 8) Once all the songs you want have been selected, drag to your iTunes Library in Tune Tools. 9) A blue bar should appear and tell you that your music is being transfered. 10) The songs will be transfered from your iPod to your computer.
I hope this works for all of you!

Tweaking the brightness settings on your iPod touch saves your eyes from unnecessary strain.
Changing the brightness settings can be done quickly if you're on the go.
Adjusting the brightness of the screen can make the device brighter if you're in a dark environment or darker if you're in a bright environment.
Alternatively, you can set the device to automatically adjust to the level of brightness it's exposed to.
Press the "Home" button to return to your iPod touch's home screen.
Tap the "Settings" app.
Tap "Brightness." A scroll bar appears at the top of the screen.
Press and hold your finger against the circle on the scroll bar.
Drag your finger to the right to brighten the screen and to the left to darken the screen.
The screen's brightness will change as you move the circle.
Alternatively, tap the ON/OFF toggle to the right of Auto-Brightness to have the device automatically adjust itself based on the detected brightness level.
Tap the "Home" button just beneath the iPod touch home screen to save your changes and return to the device's home screen.
if this is not or cant fix the problem you might have restore it to factory settings
You can use iTunes to restore iPod Touch software.
Apple recommends using the latest version of iTunes to complete this process.
Follow these steps to get the latest version of iTunes and restore your iPod Touch software.
Back up your iPod Touch's data to your computer before the restore to prevent losing data.
You'll need to reinstall it after the restore process.
Connect to the Internet and install the latest version of iTunes from the Apple website.
Make sure your iPod Touch is connected to your computer.
Pick "iPod Touch" in the Source pane of the iTunes program.
Click on the Summary tab.
Choose "Check for Update."
Select "Restore" and follow the instructions to finish restoring your iPod Touch.
although it does sound like a hardware problem with the ribbon cable leads so if this fails and you are tech savy you could try to open it up and to have a look
hope this helps
