Water damage, should I consider it done?

This 32GB I was given seems to work, other than the digitizer. I followed the Electronics Water Damage Guide and here is what I got.

I gave it about a 30 minute bath in 91% IPA. Then hit it with a toothbrush. Followed by a cold hair dryer. I ordered a new digitizer from Am@zon that showed up today. Partially seated in on the case to hook up the ribbon cable. Restarted the iPod with Sleep + Home combo.

And it still does not work, same exact results as the original Apple digitizer.

Am I missing something here? Did I do something wrong? Or should I just suck it up and consider this thing toast?

I'm usually not one to give up this easy, but there are limited options as far as trying to repair myself.

the problem is most likely the digitiser connection on the board. corrosion may have lifted a pin.this is one in the uk I'm sure you can find them in the US. It looks astoundingly like the 3g/3gs connector so you might like to contact suppliers and ask about compatibility if you can't find it.

Well,it's your device. But, you might want to try the logic board or battery.
