Thread: Water Damaged iPod Touch ~Help~

  1. #1
    Default Water Damaged iPod Touch ~Help~
    Ok, so I went swimming at my friends pool and a couple of my friends pushed me into the pool with my iPod still inside. I heard about people putting it in uncooked rice, so I tried that, I left in it for 3 days. I turned it on and the power button worked, the volume button worked, and the home button worked. The thing is, the touch screen WON'T work, does anyone know how to fix it or how to cover up the red sensor bar if i send it in to the apple store?

    Thanks!

    You can fix it by replacing the part. The digitizer is toast.

    And nobody's gonna help you screw Apple.

    send it to your local apple store. they will fix it or give you a new one.


    BE CARFUL- IF THE IPOD IS JAILBROKEN...Apple might do something about it.

    My advice- If the screen doesnt work but the functions still do, try to restore it via itunes, then bring it to apple.

    If it wont work, then...go to the apple store

    If it has water damage, Apple will not replace it.
    And they're not going to do anything if it's jailbroken, they'll just give it back to you.
    I always feel sorry for the guy in the iPhone commercials. He always gets a call right in the middle of trying to do something

    But then what would be the point of giving it to apple? >.>

    fix it? how. they wouild need to take the enitire thing apart. afterwards, they will check it see if its working. If it has jailbroken lock screen...
    They might do something.

    EDIT

    I just read about jailbreaking and how apple can sue you

    It is legal, For now. Apple is trying to change the goverments mind on jailbreaking.

    If it has water damage - there IS no point. Water damage voids your warranty!
    First thing they check is for water damage. It is taken much more seriously than jailbreaking/unlocking.

    errr...

    i wouldnt bring that ipod in anymore...

    It is illeagal because jailbreaking VOIDS your warrenty.

    So your in a pickel -_-

    Edit- Link- [ame]http://www.ipodtouchfans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=10324[/ame]

    Unless you restore it before you bring it in, it will be counted as a VOID warrenty.

    Okay people, get this in your head.
    It doesn't matter if it's jailbroken or not.
    Once they see the iPhone has been in contact with a liquid (that includes milk) they will just give the iPhone back to you and void your warranty.
    No matter how much you restore, your warranty is still voided because of the liquid damage.

    I've heard of people getting it worked out with apple when they get it water damaged. I heard someone say that they went in and apple offered to fix it for a ridiculas prics or give him a new one for 150, it's worth going in and checking our options
