Well, certainly there's a good chance you can get it repaired. First, I would take it to Apple Reseller first, not a backyard Consumer Electronic Repair shop. Take it to an Apple Reseller who will ship it out for repair most likely. They usually will charge you a flat fee of around $85 at first, then after the actual problem has been found, they will give you a more precise firm estimate.
It is possible the inner circuits have been damaged beyond salvage, but you'll never know until you ship it out for repair.

Hope this helps..... :D

How is chicken noodle soup made?

When I make chicken soup I MAKE ALOT. So I will condense this recipe down to 4 servings. I use white and dark meat, so her we go: 3 chicken br**sts or 2 chicken br**sts and 2 thighs. Boil your chicken in a large pot,with 30 ounces of chicken broth or stock. When done take chicken out and add 2 diced medium carrots, 2 diced celery stalks, and 1 small onion. Boil the veggies until the carrots are tender. Some people like to saute the veggies in oil before they go into the soup, but I like doing it this's your choice. And now you can cop your chicken or shred it back into the broth. Add 1/8 teaspoon of black pepper to it. If you want to add rice or noodles to your soup I suggest cooking them first until they are done then add them to your soup. Both of these ingredients take up the broth when they cook. You will end up with a mess and not soup. The noodles may end up mushy and the rice will consume all of your broth and it will eat more like a casserole than soup. If you want to add rice, add 1/2 cup of raw rice but add another 32 ounces of broth, same with 1 cup of noodles, but make sure the broth is boiling good before you add them.

Ipod touchgot wet, now it freezes at apple logo

Try placing your Ipod in a large bowl of uncooked dry rice for 24-48 hrs. Then plug it in to see if this will allow you to use it again.

I touch was washed - is there any hope for this Apple?

Also try putting the I touch in dry rice. a lot of the time with water damage the rice will absorb the moisture. It has worked for many people I know, so It might be worth a shot.

Ipod touch got wet and touch screen is not working

Most important thing... DO NOT TRY TO TURN IT ON!!! This can short circuit the ipod!
Make sure it is off! Your lucky because the iPod hasn't shorted yet Don't switch it on again!
I will teach you what to do...

You must remove the water from the iPod
Firstly Be sure that the iPod is off...
Now your going to have to open the iPod
This video will teach you how to open your iPod touch 2nd Gen

How to open iPod 3rd Gen

Now clean out all the water. You can use a hair dryer to do this... But make sure that the hair dryer is blowing out COLD air
Leave your iPod open for a while to dey out the remaining water Now put the iPod back together
Leave it for an hour or so Switch it on...
There is another way...
This way is easier and has worked for many people
First fill the headphone jack (where you plug in the ear phones) with WhiteOut (yes WhiteOut!!!).
Leave it for an hour or so Use Nail polish remover on a cotton bud to remove all of the WhiteOut. Let it dry before turning the iPod on. Enjoy!!!
