iPod dropped in pets water, was working now isn't. help!
My daughter's ipod touch 1st gen was dropped into my dog's water bowl for only a few seconds like 5 or 6 days ago. It had a silicone case on it and the tab inside the earphone jack is white. It worked for a little while after it had been dropped, maybe 30 minutes or so then shut off. It wouldn't turn back on then but the next day it worked again for a little while. Same thing happened, it just shut off and wouldn't come back on. It did this a couple of times. I turned it on again this morning and it only worked for about 2 minutes or so before it shut down. Then I can't get it to do anything if it was not plugged in. I took the thing apart and looked for any signs of water damage but didn't find ANY. (Never had any water spots on the screen or anything.) I cleaned all the contact points with a soft bristled tooth brush cuz I read that somewhere and put it back together. Still no luck. I plugged it into a computer (not the one with itunes on it) and reset it and it tried to download itunes to the computer. I was so excited :) It was short lived :'(. I removed it from that computer and plugged it into the one with itunes on it and got nothing. Tried resetting it again and then it went crazy. It kept turning on and off but never got past the white apple screen. I unplugged it and that stopped. The only thing I can get it to do now is turn on to the apple screen and only if it is plugged in. Is there anything I can try to hopefully fix this thing? My husband doesn't want to buy another one for our daughter but I feel bad bc it was her younger sister that dropped it in the first place. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated! Thank you and sorry this question was so long [it said to be detailed :)]
Is this a good question?
