I'm not sure if anyone read my last post about 1st gen touch getting soaked and dying but I ended up taking it to a repair who cleaned it and got it working again. Everything seems to be working, I have all my data, and the wifi still works (surprisingly). The only problem is the the screen won't light up, I can see if I hold up to an external light but other than that its pretty dark. The repair guy said he tried putting in a new LCD but it didn't do anything. My girlfriend had the same problem with her iphone screen when she knocked it in the sink, and and after a week or so it just started working again. Is this a common occurrence? I don't want to go to the trouble and expense of getting a new touch if there's a chance this one could revive it self.
