Thanks in advance for your help, everyone. My husband has a 2nd gen iPod Touch which was, unfortunately, water-damaged about 2.5 weeks ago. I've done the rice thing and let it sit for a long two weeks. It turns on (hooray!) and the touchscreen is completely functional. However, the home button is non-responsive (it was a little touchy to begin with, but I realize that is a pretty common complaint) and the LCD is really dark, as in, even on the brightest setting, you can barely see what's on the screen. I was able to get iTunes to recognize it and restored the settings, hoping that might help. It didn't seem to change anything. What do you suggest? Are these the type of problems that I could hire a local iPod guru to easily (and inexpensively) fix? Or would it be more cost effective for me to purchase a used Touch with twice the memory of the first one for $125? Thanks so much, I really am at a loss. I usually discuss electronics issues with my husband, but he's been so morose since the death of his Touch, I really wanted this to be a huge happy surprise for him.
