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.

My son's 2nd generation ipod touch received water damage and now the touch screen does not work....how can I fix this..need it fixed for antother child


Hi tonyacompton..

If you ever find that you have to deal with a wet device, don't just abandon it.
Instead, try the following method to repair the water damage:
DO NOT TURN IT ON!
Take it apart as much as you can. Take out the battery, the memory card and whatever else can be easily disassembled. (Just make sure you can put it back together.)
Store the parts in an air-tight container covered with either dry rice, silica gel packets or kitty litter. These will absorb the moisture from your electronics device, leaving it water-free.
If no rice, gel packets or kitty litter are available, try using a vacuum to **** the water out.
DO NOT blow-dry the parts, it will only force the water farther in and cause more damage.

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 touch (2nd Gen) with water damage


The touch screen is not physically attached to the screen, if water was anywhere near the bottom of the ipod it may have triggered the water damage unit inside the bottom. Water also may have leaked into the unit frying the circuits. You'll have to visit an Apple store or Apple.com/support for repair.

How do u fix an ipod touch when its not letting u unlock it


You probably got water or humidity damage so your screen is unresponsive.  Apple won't fix this thing if you got water damage.
Try opening up itunes on your laptop, plug your ipod into the usb, and choose to set up a new user name.  It will erase and re-install with your new user name.

IPod Touch got wet and the battery won't charge


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.
