water got into it
Can this be fix without going back to the apple store or should i just buy a new one
What exact model iPod is it? What kind of water got into it? It is possible to revive water drenched electronics but it is tricky and if you're not keen on taking it apart I wouldn't even try.
Place the iPod into a shoe box full of white rice and let the rice soak up the water for several hours. Then use our guide to open your iPod and allow to dry open in a cool dry place for a few days. Make sure there are no visible signs of liquid, reassemble the iPod and try to turn it on. Good luck!
