wilmer, you may have already got plenty of corrosion on your board, the connectors and the cables. Use this guide to clean your iPod. It was written for an iPhone, but the cleaning steps are the same for your. Here is a general guide and of course, to work on your iPod use these. I would also suggest that you do not tr to turn it on anymore until you have it properly cleaned, after that reevaluate for any damage. Hope this helps, good luck.

Really? Wondering why I got a downvote on this....

I did some research and you got two questions downvoted. They're retaliation votes by http://www.ifixit.com/User/Activity/4552...

I figured something like that. At least they should pick questions that I answered falsely by don't pick the good ones :-) Seem to be having picked up a bunch of people with juvenile behavior on here

If you answer a question falsely, I'll be the first one to note it, not some kid ;-) I got one last night too on a good answer. Maybe the voting age requirements should be raised.

mayer, you think we are just getting to old for this, or are they just lacking the maturity?

Open it up and clean the logic board gently with Isopropyl alcohol, and then try putting it back together and powering it up.

Did you ever get it fixed? The same situation happened for my son and I am trying to figure out how to fix it.
