maybe you can fix it - but first things first.

get the proper tools and use the logic board guide to disassemble the iPod.

you will need isopropyl alcohol (>90%) and a soft paintbrush to clean the logic board, clean everything that looks "odd" white/greenish or in your case rusty - clean it careful!

if possible - desolder the battery before you start the cleaning process

if you're done with the cleaning, let it dry, reassemble it (and if you desoldered the battery - resolder that too) and try to start it, if the battery wasn't charged - try to charge it

good luck
