My ipod lights stopped working after it fell into water.

As with all electronic devices that get wet, do not panic.
Bury your iPod into a container of rice and leave it for about a day. Rice will soak out all the moisture there is. The next day your iPod should function.
If it still doesnt, then go to the the Apple Store. If you bought the device and it hasn't been one year yet, you may be able to get a free replacement on the spot.

I got my ipod touch wet with water, an my touch screen stopped working.then i blew in it where u charge it an te screen turned white so i let it dry an now the touchscreen wont work an its like really...

Throw it in a bag of white rice for a 5 days. Restaurants use it in their salt shakers to absorb moisture.

Apple won't replace units damaged by water, but theres a guy on You Tube that will show you ways to defeat the system so you can trade in your ipod under warranty for a new one.

Screen works (dull) but wont light up

It may have gotten wet, to much moister, my daughter had one that just would not turn on, I took it to an apple store where they were able to check it out, and it turns out that it somehow got wet. Yours may not not have fallen in to water, but it could just simply be to much moister got in to it.

Ipod got wet and now it doesnt work.

Remove all residue from the water on both sides of the logic board. Are the battery contacts corrored? If so, you're battery may be broken as well. You can use a multimeter to check the battery, at 3.7V the iPod should turn on, if it doesn't the logic board is broken. There are specialized online tutorials with iPod Repair instructions that will guide you through the steps of taking you iPod apart, otherwise you'll have to send it to any third party iPod repair service and they'll do it for you.

Just restore it in itunes by going to the ipod's main menu after you plug it in to your computer and press the restore button. It should tell you to back up your information. Do that and click yes. It should be back to normal then.

Ipod nano got wet from water and does not work

take a blow drier and put it under it for about 5 mins. go on and off for about a half an hour and keep doing that on and off for a day or two. you just want to get it as dry as possible, inside and out.

So disappointing!

Apple is very strict to not allow return for liquid exposure. Is it possible the original seller exposed the iPod to liquid? Has it been in extremely high humidity environments like a closed bathroom shower? This could trigger the "exposed" to water detector.

But try to put your iPod in disk mode. Hold top and center buttons simultaneously until you see the Apple symbol and then as soon as the Apple comes up press center and bottom (play) button simultaneously until you see a check mark. Keep trying it may take a few times. If your are successful, open iTunes and then plug the "Disk mode" iPod into your computer and restore using iTunes. If you can't get it, let us know.
