    My girlfriend had a water bottle leak in her purse and got her 30GB 5G iPod, which now doesn't turn on. Anyone have experience repairing iPods? Any bets on what parts I might need to order in a situation like this?

    Has she let it rest for a few days to dry it out. If you're confident, use this guide to take it apart and let it dry out.

    similar prob

    I dropped my mobile in a canal and it lay there for 1Hr prior to me fishing it out. Once I retrieved it, I took as many covers off as a i could and left in the boiler cupboard for three days.....Im now still using it.

    PS, take the batery out if poss.
