breanna, this seems this happens a lot. Here is my answer to the same question from a different person "The first step you should do is to disassemble your iPod. Use this guide to help you out. After that clean the iPod thouroughly by following this general guide. You a high grade isopropyl alcohol. Once you are sure the logic board, connectors (do not forget the dock connector), and cables are clean replace the battery. You can get it at places like this. Once you have all this accomplished, reevaluate for any residual (if any ) damage. Remember that this model is a PITA to work on but not impossible to fix. Hope this helps good luck.

Not much change for self repair on this one. Best bet is to hit a Genius bar at an Apple retail store. They'll replace the device. Normally it's about half the cost of a new similar model. Sorry I don't have better news for you.

Hello, I have come across this before and encountered problems after getting it functioning again. What I did is take it apart by using the guide on this site iPod Nano 6th Generation 2011 Teardown then I put the logic board and battery and LCD and Digitizer into a bowl of rice (Keep it in here for a few days). After this the LCD was not functioning properly so I bought a replacement but you have to purchase the digitizer and an LCD as they are hard to remove from each other.

I see you have mentioned using rice but it does not matter when it is put into rice just as long as it is. The sooner the better obviously.

Hope I helped :)
