Uh oh -- iPod submerged in soda. Can I fix it?

Hi All,

To make a long story short, my 4G iPod was accidentally dropped into a glass of soda this weekend. It fell in charging port side down, and was submerged up to about it's halfway point for about 2 - 3 seconds.

As I frantically tried to pull it out I hit buttons on it, which turned it on. I quickly turned it off and then put it on hold. I wiped it down as much as reasonably possible. After many hours I gave it a shot trying to turn it on, and it was dead.

Turning to the internet to help, I found out how to open the thing. Right now I'm letting it air out, although I haven't yet disconnected the logic board, since I don't yet have the proper tools.

Any advice on how I should proceed? What solution is best for clearning soda off of computer boards and parts? If it's still dead as a doornail after I put it back together, what's my best course of action?

I did a search and only found one thread on the topic, which was somewhat vague. (Although it leads me to believe I may need a new battery...)

Thanks,
-Brian
