No doubt the tech taking apart the iPod Touch could do with a rusty snow shovel. I tried it using a putty knife like he did and destroyed the touch screen logic board connector. Wrong tool unless you've done it many times. Very poorly done.

@emily - what happens when you connect it to iTunes and try to restore it to factory defaults? If it fails or is not detected by your computer, it is most likely a damaged logic board.

my iPod touch with model number a1318 was submerged in water several years back. It can still turn on and screen touch sensitivity still works, it just says iPod disabled and to connect to iTunes. Can it be fixed several years later?

@Nick - it shouldn't be too hard. I haven't known batteries to move on their own or bite. So just get a cage and throw it in there.
