please help guys, its not turning on
Why lol? Rice is a proven method. Similar effect as the small packets you get in lots of stuff that say don't eat on them (Dissicant? Not sure) While trying to turn it on right away might have killed it there's no harm in trying now, right?lol at the advice... R.I.P ipod touch.
It really does help... but... sometimes you don't even need that.lol at the advice... R.I.P ipod touch.

that is just an illusion... I could as easily say to blow some hot iar with a hair dryer (to desipate the water)... it is a miss or hit situation. Circuit boards have a coating on them that protects them from the elements... mostly moisture... but is does not protect them if the battery is still there.... which i'm guessing I pod touch peripherals have it built in. IOW, there is not way to turn of the "switch" off but just let it the water dry out... trust me, I am not new to the electronics deal. Hell, un-screw a light switch, or a plug, from your house wall... grab the "live" wire with ONE HAND (key word... this is life or death situatuon)and see how you will not die (this is a life or death situation by the way, so don't atemp it because you don't know what you are doing)... you might feel a tingle sensation but as long as you don't "complete" the "circuit" you will not die... now, grab both HOT and NEUTRAL, and you are dead right away (maes a complete circuit that runs through your heart). it is simple to understand seriously. nothing to do with rice lol....It really does help
anyways... is not about drying the thing, is about taking the power source off of it ASAP.i products come with safety mechanism that turns off the phone and doesnt let it turn on if its moist inside,
And yeah, the water mark is probably actual water. If you leave the iPod with rice longer it should probably get that water out, too.
sweet, im so relieved. i did not want to but a new one haha. thank you!!!It's possible there's water still under there, I'd let it dry out some more. It's probably between the glass and the LCD itself if I had to guess.
