    Take a q-tip with rubbing alcohol on it, and swab the inside of the headphone jack, then try to take it back to apple.

    Well, what happens is...

    Theres a little piece of litmus paper on the inside of the headphone jack, and when it gets wet, it changes colors. This is how apple knows whether or not it has water damage. Using rubbing alcohol returns the litmus paper to the original color, so it appears as if it wasnt water damage and apple will most likely give you a new ipod(as long as you give a good excuse ie. You left it on the charger overnight and it started smoking and now it doesnt work).

    Im not sure if vodka would work.
