    Good evening.

    My brother spilt water on his iPod touch. Not good. To begin with, the screen worked fine, but the iPod would not play any music.

    Having left it for a few hours to dry, it was able to play music, which was great. However, the screen will not light up. You can everything on the screen, but it's dark. It's like the backlight has been turned off, if it has a backlight.

    Anyone any ideas?

    dark screen

    I have the exact same problem. I think it may have gotten a little rained on today and now I'm having the same dark screen problem. I'm hoping it will fix itself and the screen will one day return to normal. The iPod Touch is, otherwise, fully functional -as best I can tell.

    Does anyone know what to do about this?

    well if you read the manual it said to let it sit for a few hours if it got wet that is probably your best solution also dont try to use a blow dryer or anything like i can cause harmful damgeto your ipod touch (according to the manual) if all else fails resort to warranty (provided you bought one)
