fluid damages are pretty bad - and they are getting worse.

when the fluid is gone - it leaves a conductive residue - this residue will act like cancer, it simply "eats" his way through the small parts and circuits.

you can try to fix it with cleaning.

get some isopropyl alcohol and a paintbrusch, disassemble the ipod and clean the odd looking parts (white greenish residue) - clean it carefully - but it must be removed, check the connectors and don't forget the bottom side of the logic board.

let it dry - don't use a hair dryer for that and when it's dry, reassemble it and try to power it on/connect it with the computer

good luck
