    The thing inside the jack is half pink and half white.

    Its 32 days old if I try to take it back (To Argos) will they notice?

    I could just say it wouldnt turn on and they might replace/refund?

    Thanks Ben

    I might try the Rice thing, Does that actually work?

    Yes the rice thing works, and works quite well. I'd say try it ASAP. The sooner the better.

    Well, honestly i dont think it will works. if they check your ipod very carefully.
    Every iPod has "the PH test paper" inside. Once your iPod meets water, The PH test paper will change the color. Thus no matter how do u fake it, if you dont open your ipod and replace that PH test paper. You wont fake it!

    However if they dont open up your iPod , it might wont be a issue

    When they open it the warranty is voided, so they have to give you a new one
