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.
Is this a good question?
