It finally happened. On one of my canoe trips, I fell in and, to my horror, when I reached into my pocket, I found that I had forgotten to put my ipod touch in the dry bag. I immediately pulled it out and held it out of the water - it was probably submerged for 10-15 seconds total. Unfortunately, I didn't know anything about saving wet electronics at the time and I immediately tried to turn it on. It came on, I shut it off, we went further downstream and I tried it again, but when it came on the screen was all messed up and then it finally shut off. When I got home, 14 hours after the dunking incident, I put it in a tupperware container full of dessicant and left it that way for 84 hours. I just took it out today and tried to turn it on, but nothing happened. I plugged it in, figuring the battery was completely drained, and the 'dead battery' icon came on. After a minute or two, this changed to the apple logo. The apple logo stays on for a bit and then shuts off, comes on, shuts off. If I turn it on by pressing the home button, it keeps bringing up the 'dead battery' symbol even though I let it charge for like 10 minutes now. I plugged it into the computer and itunes won't recognize the device. So I put it back in the dessicant for now. Do you think that maybe the battery is completely fried and won't hold any charge? I can pick one up on ebay for like $6 and replace it to see if that works.
