    Okay, so I dropped my ipod touch in the toilet about 3 days ago. It was only submerged for about 1 second or so. I then proceeded to put it in a container full of rice and i left it like that for a day and moved the container next to a heater. After the 3rd day of letting the ipod dry out i attempted to turn it on, didn't work so i went to charge it on my laptop. IT WORKED PERFECTLY FOR ABOUT 30 MINUTES, then when i safely ejected the ipod it turned into a black screen.

    Then I just put the ipod back into the rice next to a heater. Did I try to charge it too early and does this mean i fried the circuit or is the ipod just done for!?

    Thanks if you can help!

    When it was connected to your computer it will have been using the USB power

    It is possible that you have fried the circuits, or you could have damaged the battery. If it is only the battery and the connectors that are damaged, then it should work when connected to your computer still.

    However, I recommend leaving it for a few days in the bag of rice above the heather still. once it has stood for a week, try connecting it to your computer again
