    I had a bunch of stickers on the back of my ipod touch 2g and decided to remove them with WD-40. It worked wonderfully removing the stickers, but it somehow got inside the lcd screen. I removed the front glass to confirm this. Is there any way to get rid of the wd-40 inside the screen? Everything works fine except for the discoleration the wd40 causes. Below is a picture

    Shut it off immediately, and then put it in a air-tight container of uncooked white rice for a couple of days. It should suck out all the moisture.

    Uh, it should slowly evaporate out I believe... you'll still probably have some discoloration remaining though

    Over time, I think it should return to normal color. You might have to wait a while though.

    seeing as how WD-40 is mainly composed of alcohol, it should evaporate fairly quickly. I'd say shut it off and just leave it for a week at least.
