Dropped iPod touch in water, certain buttons won't work

I have a 4th generation iPod touch.The screen on It is already cracked in four places already, and was going to take it to get it fixed.The other night I got out of the car without realizing my iPod touch had fell into a puddle at my gradnmothers.The next day my cousin had found it and let it dry out, but they had cut it on.When I got ahold of it, I tried vacumn sucking it.The touchscreen eventually started to work and it does now.But my home button doesn't work at all, and my sound button won't work, and the sound bar never appears.And when I go to charge it, the iTunes logo with a charger pointing at it appears but still charges.How do I fix this? Any opinions?or should I just go get a new iPod?

ShyannHowington, I most certainly would suggest that you at least try to clean it. Anytime you have had a liquid exposure, the board is prone to corrosion failure. Use this guide to learn what needs to be cleaned. It was written for a iPhone, but all the steps apply to your iPod as well. Use the guides from here to find out how to work on your iPod. It do believe in at least giving it a try, instead of just saying you need a new one. You may still do, but at least you will know for sure. Hope this helps, good luck.

Unfortunately, if it landed in a puddle, there is little you can do to salvage the device.

Sorry it took so long for someone to get back to you. Yes, you should go get a new iPod. However, you can probably get some cash selling your broken iPod on eBay. However, please remember to describe the device accurately.

Best of Luck,
