What might be wrong with the hold switch?
I dropped my ipod in water, and it would not turn on / respond at all, so I was afraid I might have shorted something.
I took it apart, used rubbing alcohol on the logic board, cleaned the contacts, and let it dry for a few days. When I reconnected things and plugged it in, it worked! sort of. It powered on and showed the normal menu screen, but the hold switch icon was on and it did not respond to any of the buttons, even when I tried holding the menu/play buttons and after restoring it.
I tried wiggling the hold switch's connection and even disconnecting it, but nothing worked. Now, though, it doesn't even power on. Instead, it just shows the apple logo on a dark screen and I can hear/feel that the hard drive is spinning. It is also no longer recognized by the computer.
Any idea what could be wrong / how I could fix it?
Is this a good question?
