Basically as the title says, I dropped my 2 day old Ipod touch in the bath, at present i am drying it out in a bag full of rice and in the airing cupboard, what are the chances of it working again!

#10
I was playing music and it fell off the side into the bath,
#11
aww what a shame, my heart goes out to you. I've only had mine for 3 days and I'd be gutted if it was me. I've no idea if it can be saved I only hope it will be OK.

Good luck!

if its just this wet you will be ok any worse probably not

you should always use 2 hands with the ipod near the bath and maybe not watch "specialist" movies

don't you have any silica gel packs, wouldn't they work better?
Anyway, best of luck i dropped my blackberry in the loo when it was just a few weeks old and was absolutely gutted, so i empathise.:w00t:
#18
haven't got any silica gel packs so rice will have to do
#19
Just make sure you use dry uncooked rice. A tin of Ambrosia will really #### it up for you
#20
For anyone else that uses their ipod in the bath. Buy a portable dock with a remote and the worst you can do is drop the remote.

Sorry you've dropped your ipod in the bath. Hope it works ok, a lot depends on how long it was in the water and how much got in.

My dad had his Iphone in his shirt pocket and bent down to pick up a stick for the dog on the beach... oops it dropped into the sea! He was mortified! He tried to dry it out and it just wouldnt turn on. He tried to take it apart to let it dry out but he messed up the screws oops. He rang insurance and they said look at the small print "not covered for water damage". Gutted!
He now has a new one (had to pay) and has new insurance that actually includes water damage. Make sure you read the small print !
#22
If it was switched on when it was submerged then I'm afraid it's dead. No ammount of rice will bring it back to life.

at the moment just looked at it and seems lke the touch screen isn't working but will check again 2moro when its all dried out fingers crossed
#25
i'd just take it back and say its stopped working, but i guess it depends on where you got it

you should not turn it on as already said, also i would leave it a least a week to dry out not just overnight.
#27
Sell it on here, say the snow must have got in the parcel.
#28
this thread is brilliant
#29
put a towel on a radiator and rest your ipod on top, but dont switch it on the pod ( i think is something to do with shorting the curcuit or something). Worked for my touch screen phone...If all else fails just return it and say the screen has stopped working!:thumbsup:

Shame he didn't know he could get it replaced for £140 at an Apple Genius Bar! I did that with a water damaged one no problems.
#31
i just went to check on it as was unsure if it was switched off, and it wasn't and it had full screen but the screen wouldn't work so then had to try and turn it off!
it was from argos,

They have little moisture sensors where the headphone jack is plugged in, and in the bottom somewhere too I believe. I doubt you'd get away with this.
#33
read about the water sensor thing too.
would argos check for that i took it back
#34
What a Plonka
only kidding mate,tbh your best bet is to get it returned, dont mind me asking wher did you buy it from?
#35
I brought it from Argos
#36
take it back to argos and explain you thought it was the new 4g version that lets you phone someone, listen to music download porn and take a bath all at the same time

Had a problem with a water damaged ipod- was under warranty and luckily the water damage indicator was not activated so apple replaced the item.

You can tell if the headphone-jack Liquid Contact Indicator has been triggered by looking directly down into the headphone jack. Use a lighted magnifying glass or angle the iPhone or iPod so light shines down into the headphone jack. At the base of the headphone jack, you should see what is normally a white or silver-colored dot. The dot will become full or half red or pink when the dot has come in contact with water or a liquid containing water. To view the dock-connector indicator on iPhone 3G or iPhone 3GS, use a lighted magnifying glass and hold the device so that you can view the center bottom of the dock-connector housing. A full or partial red dot will appear if the indicator has been triggered.

Argos usually arent too fussy, the best thing to do is wait till the phone is dry so that there is no physical sign of water damage and hope you get served by somone who cant be bothered and say it just doesnt work shes gona try and turn it on and act dumb and you should get a replacement simple
