    My 2nd gen got wet a few weeks ago and it still refuses to show any sign of life at all. I can see the faintest pink line on the battery and I want to point out that it's still under warranty for another month, but I'm aware that moisture is not covered under warranty. I have looked at a few of the videos on youtube, but I'm a bit skeptical about their ideas. If anyone has any opinions about that subject send me a PM.

    With that out of the way it seems like the only real choice is sending it to someone for repair since I really have no way of knowing what all might be wrong with it. Lets say I buy a battery and it turns out to not be the only issue and then I buy something else and it still doesn't work the cost could spiral out of control and I might waste more chasing the solution than the device is worth. (Pardon the run on sentence.)

    I'm wondering if there are any reputable repair outfits or should I rethink doing it myself or should I try to (cough) work on it warranty-wise or what? I'm a pretty sharp cat, but I've found it hard to get any reliable sounding reviews for ipod touch repairs.

    Thanks in advance!

    I suggest you take it to apple store ... just tell them that your ipod stopped by itself and you dont know why.. If they found that it was wet well just play dumb..lol. It might work tho' and than you can try other alternatives.
    Its only a suggestion....
