Unresponsive sleep button with slight water damage

My sleep button started failing after i touched my ipod touch with really wet hands and probably got little bit of water into it. The ipod started going on and off with the screen which i just proceeded to shut it down and put it in a bag of rice to remove the water and moisture from it. The sleep button works but after i press it like 50 times which is fine but i've been putting up with this problem for like 5 months and i'm wondering is there a way to repair this?

Yes. The ipod touch screen needs to be removed as well as everything else including the lcd and mother board along with the wifi cable which lies above the sleep button flex cable. Once everything is out you can access the sleep and volume buttons which are all one piece. Remove the four screws holding the buttons in place then life all adhesive and tape holding it to the backplate. Once done then just simply swap a new one in place and reassemble. You can purchase the parts off of ebay for about $10.00

Remember be careful and have soft hands so you dont break the lcd and touch screen which will throw your repair up another $30.00
