    Ok So first off I was taking a shower, I left my Ipod Touch laying on my sweats and I used a little too much force picking it up and it sent my Ipod flying and landed in the toilet

    But after a couple hours of drying to seemed to turn on with 20% battery and it lived but theres is one problem. The touch screen is'nt responding(touch and pressing apps don't work sliding to turn off is a pain you basically just cant touch it) every other button seems to work fine but sometimes the screen reconizes my finger and actually hits a button but overall it doesnt work, any suggestions on what I should do?


    Thanks

    i must admit when i read the title i was thinking something else happend.
    but i think its toast. take it to apple after you restore it(if jailbroken)
    i think your best off to do that.

    I don't think I still have the receipt and plus I bought it 7 months ago at Radio Shack can I still take it into Apple?
    Right now my ipod is current charging but I'm starting to notice the screen is becoming more touchable and fixed o.o not completely but It's getting there.

    Almost the exact same thing happened to a friend of mine while he was over my house! We let it air dry over night and it turned on for like 2 seconds and then basically broke. He went to an apple store and said it got a little wet from walking in the rain or something very similar to that but not sure but they replaced it for free!

    Dunk it into a bowl of rice, and leave it there for a day. Worth a shot, kitty litter also works better. Also, just shut it off completely while it's drying.
