Ok. I got my ipod wet, just a little, and it stopped working a couple days ago. I got the dreaded "red x" when I turned it on. My computer wouldnt recognize it. I couldnt get it into "disk mode" (hold menu and play at apple screen, this is what apple support recommends when u get the red x). So my ipod was completely bricked. Tryed everything. Well. I left it alone for a few days and decided to give it a random chance today. And it came on!!!! put it into disk mode, reloaded all my music, and it appears to be working fine now! If you get it wet, your best bet is to let it dry out, dont mess with it for a couple of days, and then give it a try. Best of luck to all of you.

Hey! I had the wet IPOD problem: would not turn on and freaked my PC out. I pressed the middle button and menu for about 15 seconds and it has turned on.
It still behaves oddly, but it feels like a bit of progress..

My Ipod fell in a puddle when I tripped going to a store. Now it keeps displaying the Itunes symbol with a USB cord. So I restored it over 15 times and it still won't restore my ipod correctly. I've given up; any solutions?

I spilt milk on my ipod touch 3g then after an hour or so Same thing happend to me. i was told to keep it on a heat source then let it dry for like a week. But what sux is i kept mine on for like 10 minutes after it got wet which couldve killed my motherboard= CERTAIN DEATH but if my motherboard is fried ill send it to "Irepair" search it up and see from then on. Irepair fixes wet ipod for $50 or if it cant be fixed $20 fee or give them the broken ipod. Ill comment giving the info on what happens next 0.o. Btw im not trying to promote irepair im just telling what im going to do about my ipod.

no they wont exchange it for you because you broke it, I went there a months ago and thats what they told me.But if it broke by itself then they'll give you the newest ipod out!!!!!
