    Hi, I was kinda wondering if there was anything I could do, My Ipod went through the washer machine and dryer. It survived and works but the only thing wrong is the backlight doesnt turn on in the actual Ipod menu or anything, if i go to the apple diagnostics screen and test the backlight, it works perfectly. So I was wondering if you guys could help.

    (edit) I fixed it by reseting to factory default. Works perfectly now.
    (edit) I turned off an on again and it wasnt on again.

    This is a common problem on water logged iPods. The only fix is replacing the screen, and in some cases the motherboard is also bad.. Water is the most destructive problem for iPods. They are never the same once they are water logged.
