When through the washer? Hate to say it but you may have to get a new one. Have you tried putting it in a bag of rice?

I did this too! Go to your closet and gatherup all of those silicone packs that come in shoeboxes. Find as many as you can and put them in a plastic container with a good tight lid. If you don't have many, make a nice bed of rice to add to the bowl. Pop the battery out of your ipod and lay everything in the bowl, snap on the lid and leave it alone for two or three days. That should take care of it. If not, leave it a few more days. I hope it works for you.

Take the battery out and leave it and the ipod in a bowl of rice for a day or two. This happened to my son, we did this treatment and it works just fine!

I hope you haven't tried to turn it on yet. That's what usually kills it. This should all be done before ever trying to turn it on because it will short out and then you will need a new one.
