On Sunday, a little bit of gatorade was spilled on my iPod classic. The iPod was not submerged in water and was only partially wet. As soon as I could, (about an hour later) I put the iPod in a bowl of rice to dry out. I only now took it out and it does not work. The iPod is now back in the rice, as I have read that it should be in rice for about 5-7 days. Both sensors in the dock and headphone jack appear to be normal and do not show signs of pink. What do you suggest I do? Is it worth it to wait it out and see if the iPod shows signs of working in the next few days? Do I take it to the Apple store? (I am aware that I am not covered under the warranty since this was an accident). I have also read about iPod specialists such as methodshop.com and rapidrepair.com that can supposedly repair water damaged iPods. Is this worth trying? Basically, I am looking for the cheapest way to have a working iPod again. Any suggestions?
