My friend had the same problem, I solved it by pushing the USB plug in only half any and it started up again; good luck.

give it time...same thing happened to me. I was so bummed and ready to buy a new one. Wait a couple weeks and leave it on the port. Mine just started blinking and works great now...good luck!!

Let the Ipod dry out. I washed my son's Ipod, left it in a cabinet for a few months. We took it out and it works perfectly! I heard the same thing with cell phones. The key is not to attach it to electricity too soon. Let it dry out.

i just started an ipod repair company because i have been fixing ipods for a long time ... when your ipod goes through the wash ... its about a 30% chance of survival ... but my website offers free diagnostic, shipping and labor... so pretty much you buy the part/s if you want to fix it ... my website is rhousemedia.com
