    Help me the fuck out

    So yesterday I went running into the bathroom with my ipod touch in hand, take a seat, plop, there goes my ipod. "FUCK!" It was fine for a few seconds but then it dimmed real low, lower than it should. I let it sit outside in the sun to help dry it off, it got the screen back average brightness. I knew it wasn't fully dry and watched some youtube vids. Didn't have any of that keyboard cleaner shit that goes through the straw and blows air, so that was fucked, and then I tried blow dryer. Let it sit on the floor while the blow dryer blew into the charger port for a lil while. Picked it up, shit was hot as hell. Decided to just put it in a bag of rice overnight. Wake up, go to school, come back and the shit was dry, but water got behind the screen so there's splotches of white shit back there. Kinda makes my screen look 3D, pretty cool actually. I tried using it and the touch screen worked for 30 seconds and then it stopped working. I put it back in sleep and unlocked it again, it worked for 30 seconds and stopped. Still doing that now. What the fuck should I do?

    Noticed you said you put it in rice over night. Overlooked that. But yeah, youre supposed to keep electronics in rice for a good week (possibly 2) before trying to use it. One night isnt enough.

    I did after blowdrying and letting it sit out. Had someone told me earlier, it would have been easier, but my parents aren't too smart with technology.

    Don't just tell me what I did wrong, tell me what the fuck to do now.

    that's just wrong


    you're killing the screen and electronics inside it by applying that kind of heat.


    immediately throw electronics in rice and leave for a week.

    hairdryers give off radiation, that heat generated radiation is not good for the electronics.
