    I love how almost everyone in the comment section gets their iPods submerged in water and hen the first thing they say they do immediately afterwards is try to turn it on to see if it works.

    Doh!

    I have revived phones that got wet, but they always had some issues after that. Did you remove the battery and dry out the innards as much as possible before putting it in the rice? Try to be patient and let it dry out for a few days, which I know is hard to do, before you put the battery back in to try it. And you also can try the way.

    Sorry but your screwed. 5 minutes is passed the point of no return

    same thing happened to me, but i jumped in the pool with it in my pocket TWICE and swam around for like 5 minutes when i realized it was in my pocket. You should leave it for a few days or weeks and don't turn it on. When its the end of a few weeks or days charge it and then see if it works. if it doesn't then IDK.

    umm my suggestion is a short in the battery i have an ipod that i dropped into a pond while it was plugged into an extension cord and i replaced the battery and now it works

    im a idiot so i got peanut butter on my ipod then i washed it off tottally forgeting that it would short circute and to make it worse i got sunblock in it so ya it works kinda but the screen looks wired like way darker and it has wired shapes inside i can see when i look at screen can i fix it some how? Please respond quick please.

    Uhh ok so about a week ago I just in the pool and it wasnt till about mid air the i realized my ipod touch was in my back pocket i was in the water for less than a minute so i took it out and let it dry but now my screen is whiter than before and the light sometimes goes back to normal but its more of a flicker so i was wondering because its already dry is it going to stay like than or will it go back to normal in a few months or what and if not about how much would it cost to get it fixed?

    So i just washed my ipod touch. i found it aboutt an hour after my washer shut off and i tried to turn in on and it didnt. i dont have any rice what do i do?!

    Alright peoples, i need serious assistants asap. I brought an ipod nano at the end of last year and had it for two wonderful months before it got drowned in my perfume. It got wet and it would only work while being plugged into the wall or the computer, as it still does. As soon as i pull it out of a power source the screen goes black and thats the end of it. Ive been searching google for 7 months now trying to get my ipod to work after being wet 7 months ago. After reading these above comment it made me think so i plugged it into a power source and i could still slightly see water in the screen so i blow dried it for 2-3 minutes on low and the water disapered but it has made no change to how it works. Might i add that it doesnt play songs when plugged in or out. After leaving a comment here i am going to try your rice theory. Has anyone else got any ideas what so ever about how to fix the love of my life? Please help! My ipods on life surrport!!!
