    , how stupid of me i no but sh*t happens. It went all weird turn white and died. I though i would try and dry it out and left it on my radiator for 24 hours. It dint switch on untill i conected it to itunes but it seems to be working fine now apart from wifi. The only downside is i have water marks underneth the screen which i suppose give me a crappy yet unique background.

    Any suggestions on how to get rid of the water marks or am i just going to have to live with it and also i known my wifi me be damage but is there anyway of going into the ipod and changing turning it on?

    Here the link to my youtube video if you want to see it.

    Only solution is to take apart the ipod and clean it up.
    INFO: next time dont turn your ipod or whatever on until all the water is dried up. just wait and wait and wait.

    No need to call names...

    If it breaks and then you can't return it to the Apple Store for a new one because you dropped it in tea and maybe decided to take it apart, wanna volunteer to be the first person to microwave your ipod touch?

    I mean...you can dry it off in the microwave

    lol

    Take it to the Apple Store and see if they will do anything. If they won't , try and take it apart.

    Just my advice.

    Good idea
    They might not do anything about it though since the ipod can tell when its been submerge in water.
