unfortunately your ipod cannot be fixed with our help because you did function it when still wet on the inside electric circuit and had a short-circuit obviously,

after falling in the pool the right move was to switch it of immediately and leave it drain for many days in order to be sure that it is completely dry before you function it,

you could still get it replaced if it is still on your guaranted period by telling to your salesman that it suddenly stopped working

im sorry,
hope i helped!

Use a hair dryer and blow into the phone. DO NOT put the heat on else the phone may get toasted. It will remove all traces of water from the phone.

I dropped phone in water now Emergency Download is on screen

Another way is to remove whatever you can without a screwdriver and use your hair dryer to eveporate all the water traces. Do it without heat as we dont want to toast the phone. Do it in short bursts for some time. Insert the battery and power on.

Blow into it with your hairdryer without heat. Do it for a minute or so many times to remove water traces from the insides. Do not put the heat on else it may get toasted.

LG Dare dropped in Pool

Just put it in a bag of rice for couple of weeks. The rice pulls all the water or wetness out of the phone. How do I know, Well I found a brand New Lg Dare phone in a puddle, put it in rice for 2 1/2 months. I took it out of the bag, put it together, turn it on. To my amazement it worked. Ran to store, bought a charger, and it has worked every day since.

I pod got wet wont work

Ipon the ipods case up. then Put the ipod in a zip lock bag full of uncooked raw white rice. seal the bag and leave it in there for 2 days. rice absorbs water. it should dry it up.
dont try to plug the ipod in or it will fry the circuit and you will destroy it.
If you need to know how to open an ipod case go to my website.
