Ok so it all started while playing basketball in my driveway while listening to my Ipod Touch. I dropped it stopped listening to it until I came into my house and tried plugging in my earbuds but they wouldn't go in all the way so I figured there was dirt in the jack. I didn't really know what to do so I Googled and it said something about rubbing alcohol so I dipped a Q-Tip in a little bit and put it in the earbud jack. When I pulled it out, it had the dirt on it and eventually I got my earbuds in, but I have a feeling there's still dirt in there. And when I looked at my Ipod, I can see a deep shadow working it's way up my screen, obviously the alcohol so I go a bowl of rice and my ipod is currently resting underneath the rice. I have little hope as of now, but before the rice my Ipod wouldn't play through the earbuds, whether it be from me forcing them in there, playing with a needle trying to get the dirt out, the Q-Tip, or just the alcohol. Does anybody know if there's any hope for my Ipod? If not how much would it cost to fix? And it there an easy way to get the dirt out? Thanks.
