Dropped in Water - what to do?

My wife dropped her iPod in the bath tub. I took the back off and tried to dry it with a hair-dryer, but it still won't turn on. What should I do?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Leave it in a bag of uncooked rice for a day, then try to turn it on.

If it doesn't, then try replacing the battery.

If that doesn't work, then it's the logic board and you can't do much about that.

Search this site for other threads with "liquid spill" for other ideas.
