I have had this happen to me as well the best advice I can give you to see if it can gain its life back is...
1.) Is remove any headphones extra items on the nano....
2.) Get a ziploc bag the freezer size ones, open the bag, and put in some white rice half full
3.) Keep this in their overnight or for at least 24 hours. 12 hours will work but 24 is even better
4.) After the time is up see if you can turn on your nano. But make sure before you turn it on that you do not see or feel any visible signs of water.
5.) I had to repeat steps 2&3 twice in order for my nano to come back to life, but it did exactly work. Very surprised!!
My good friend also filled up a bag with those silica packets that you can find in shoes, clothing, and other products. I know that she was able to go to a retail chain store and pick some up. She just asked if she could speak with someone in recieve and they came out with a huge handful of them.
Good luck hope this helps!!
If none of this works....do you still have your warranty? I know that Apple is pretty good with trying to fix products, or help you get a new one if your warranty isn't up. Even if it is I would go to the Apple store and see what they can do for you.
