    umm.... i spilled a little bit of water on my ipod and now the wifi doesnt work... for a little while the backligt wasnt working.... but that cleared up. has anyone ever managed to do this before? does the wifi clear up eventually?

    (no water got on the bottom so i could still probably get it replaced if i need to)

    before you try to return it shine a flashlight in the headphone jack and make sure that the thing in the back is white because if it is red apple will not return it. if it is red I HAVE HEARD AND WONT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE LOL that if you take a cue tip with a bit of alchohol on the end and dap it on the red thing it will turn back to white BUT I HAVNT TRIED THIS AND DONT RECOMEND IT UNLESS YOU DO SOME MORE REASEARCH HAHA.
    Good Luck.

    exactly ^^
    and although I feel no guilt in stealing 300$ from a company ad big as apple, it has worked a couple days now and I think the water eveporated or something... anyway I'm not getting a new one. but if I ever drop it in a pool you all will have helped me a lot

    Hi i dropped my i pod in the bath today and the wifi doesnt work, everything else does now after i put it oin the radiator but before the backlight had broken. I checked the thing in the headphone jack and its white so i wanted to know what that means. Also how long did it take for your internet to work and did you do anything in paticular
    Thanks x

    If the wifi isn't working, then it will probably never work. Sounds like it caused a short circuit. I opened one up with those exact symptoms, and there was a big burn mark where the wifi board is.

    If it's under warranty I'd get it replaced. I don't think Apple's net worth will crumble from your ipod being returned! ;D
