    I have a second gen iPod touch and I accidentally put it through the wash recently. I have it in rice right now (I heard it helps) but before I did that I tried turning it on and it went to the apple logo but it wont make it past that.

    How long have you been keeping it in rice?
    Yes it does help sometimes, rice takes the water in.
    I had the same thing with mine, but not water, it got cold after I was using it in winter... (last year winter).. I had to wait around 5 hours.. Again, How long have you been waiting?
    (There has already been a thread like this, and it sounds like going to Apple is useless).

    Leave your iPod in the rice for at least 24 hours, preferably more.
    How did you manage to get the thing in the wash? It's so big not to be noticed

    if you tried to turn it on before you put it in rice, your screwed. by turning it on, you fried the insides of you touch. if you didn't, your touch should be fine after about 2 days in rice.

    yeah.. but sometimes people keep it for one day, and throw the device away if it didn't work.. That's stupid!!! I'll say you need to keep it for around 2 days minimum!!
