    My iPod Touch 8GB had some water damage recently...
    I went in the pool with it without knowing i had it with me
    After about 5-10minutes i finally realized and got it out
    At first it won't turn on so i decided to leave out in the sun for 10min
    After about 5 more minutes i tried to turn it on again
    So after reading some stuff about water damaged iPods, i put the iPod in a bag of rice
    After a day and a half, i decided to put my iPod in the dock just hoping that it might still work,
    It turned on and was working fine, until i took it off the dock
    It only turns on when it's on the dock and turns off right away when it is off of the dock
    I tried plugging it in my laptop but it doesn't turn on that way
    Neither my laptop or my iTunes recognize it
    Is there anyway to fix this?
    I've tried holding the power button and home button but that doesn't do anything

    Seems like your battery is shot because there was a short.

    Im pretty sure your battery is wasted and you need a new ipod touch. Apple may be nice and give you a new one but when i went it with a messed up bettery they said "well its not water damage or anything you did". So you most likely will have to buy a new one.
