Hello,

Well, I can't guarantee that the following steps will work, but it's worth a try. Water is like poison to electronics. The thing you have to do is to turn it off immediately. If it stays on, then the water that is inside could short something out and you will lose you Touch forever. You need to dry it and make sure there is no sign of water inside or out. The one thing I would do is to place it over an air vent in your house and turn on the heat (or you can use a space heater if it's not cold enough for the heat). This will dry the insides and out, but you will have to do this for at least a couple of hours, and I would recommend overnight. Do not place directly on top of a space heater, as the extreme heat will screw up your touch as well. Place it close enough so it will get warm. Some people suggest putting in a bowl or dry, uncooked rice as rice absorbs moisture. You can try that as well after the heat.

Good luck.

My 2g ipod touch is bricked on the apple screen and i dont know what to do


Your ipod can go into paper weight or brick mode after dropping it or exposing it to moisture ie. water. Look down the headphone jack with a flash light and see if the little rectangular water sensor is white or pink. White means that your good and pink means the water sensor has been triggered and the unit has been exposed to excessive moisture. Here's the kicker- Apple's 1 year warranty does not cover water damage so your fu.kd. But if your still within your year warranty or you got an extended warranty, then just take the thing back to the Apple store and exchange it out if the water sensor is not pink.

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.

IPod touch Digital Media Player: my grandson dropped by Ipod touch in the toilet! t...


Well the screen can be fixed by sending it to apple or one of many other repair shops. The water is the hard part. Your best bet is to fill a zip lock bag with dry rice and put your ipod inside and leave it for a week and maybe the rice will pull the moisture out. Water is a killer but once it dries out, you might be lucky. In the end it may cost more to repair than its worth.

Ipod touch wont turn on,sync,charge,restore, or anything.


Your ipod is in paper weight mode because you either dropped this thing like a bad habit or exposed it to water.  This thing is like a cat and hates water.  Take the thing back to the store if your within your 30 day return window or take the thing back to the Apple store if your within your year window.  The Apple folks will give you a brand spankin new one if they can't figure it out, but they won't give you sh.t if they find out you water damaged it or dropped it.
