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!

You probably are not going to get this working again... But, there is a small chance that if you put it aside for a week or two it may, just maybe dry internally and work.

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.

Try putting the Ipod in a ziploc bag with some uncooked rice. The rice will absorb any moisture still trapped inside. Leave it for a few days and it might work again. It depends on how long it stayed wet. It worked with my son's Ipod after he jumped into a swimming pool with the Ipod in his pocket. Good Luck

My ipod nano went throught the washer. the music works and my itunes recognizes it. but the screen doenst work at all and i cant see anything. music plays on headphones.. just no screen

You'll want to leave it off. This next part sounds weird but it does work sometimes. I learned it while working at RadioShack. Basically, you can just put it in a bag of rice, charging port facing down, and place this bag in the refrigerator for about 4-5 days. The rice absorbs water and it sounds a little crazy but it works about 70% of the time.

Hope this helps :)

I dropped my ipod touch in the sink and it now it doesn't work

to fix this, you're going to need your ipod, a plastic zip-lock bag, and uncooked rice. first, open the bag and fill it halfway with uncooked rice. then put your ipod in the middle of it all. then zip the bag and let it sit for about a day. the rice should have absorbed all the water by then. most of the times, this will work. but sometimes, the ipod is damaged beyond repair by the water. good luck
hope this helps ;-)

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.
