Water damage wont turn on
I got this ipod from a friend who had washed it. when she washed it she tryed turning it on before it had a chance to dry. when i plug it in to the charger the apple logo flashes on once quickly and then off and then the apple logo will turn on and stay on for a few seconds and then it turns off again and it just keeps doing this. But i had it sitting in my closet for like 5 months and just 4 days ago i plugged it in and it worked fine. the only thing is the battery didn't fully charge, and it slowly lost all its power and wouldn't charge any more. and now its doing the same thing it did 5 months ago! Is the battery causing all the problems? I'm planning on buying a new battery but i don't want to waste my money if this isn't the problem. Thanks in advance for any help.
Is this a good question?
