    Hi!

    This is my first post, and I am wondering about the warranty for iPod Touch. The Litmus Paper is like 2/3 of it is white and rest is pink/purpleish. Am I eligible for warranty? If not, is there way to fix it for cheaper price. The problem is the touch screen is not responsive, volume switch is not working, and home button is not working either but I can take pictures (Power + Home Button)..... and put it in DFU Mode.

    p.s I accidently drop it in the toilet and took it out for few seconds....... FML

    Please Help Me D8........

    Thanks,

    Matthew Kim

    If you have water-damaged your iPod, it will not be covered by Apple's warrenty.
    Switch off the device immediately, and put it into a bowl of uncooked rice for at least a week. This will suck out all the moisture. This is less likely to work though as you switched your device on...You should NEVER try to switch wet electronics on, that's rule number one.

    If you dropped it in a toilet, its wet.

    Just inside the headphone socket, small white piece right at the top.
