Vanesa Merino, I do not think that the trouble started with your wet hands. I would suggest you try reset. Hold down the sleep/wake button and home button at the same time. Continue to hold at least 10-15 seconds. Wait for the Apple logo to appear. Let us know if this helped.

I try it and it still does not work :'/ its only my unlock bar it wont even move at all. PLEASE HELP !

by Vanesa Merino

Hook the ipod up to the computer like you are going to sync it, then with it still connected, hold the two buttons down until you reset it. This should reset the firmware and software.

Vanessa I was going through the same thing and it sounds like your digitizer is broken. the digitizer senses where your finger touches on the screen. on the bright side the part is cheap and ther is alot of videos explaining how to repair it. So if you are willing to spend $10-$20 and put a little time in learining how to do it watching videos you WILL be able to repair it yourself

Your Digitizer, that is touch responsive screen got liquid damaged. Replace that.

Since, you are going to replace it, why not to give a rough work around. Try to use hair dryer from a foot distance for about 20 minutes making sure you are not going to fry anything but just hitting with warm enough air. Make sure unit is turned off (on hold).

try holding the power and home button.

wait for the apple logo to appear

then it should probably work from there!

Reseting my iPod did absolutley nothing, about 4/5 of my iPod screen doesn't work. (Including my unlock bar unfortunatly) I have cleaned my screen and done every 'solution' that I've found, with none having any effect. :(
