How to Charge Ipod Shuffle

I plugged the charger into a usb port on my computer, set the ipod sucurely in the charger, and left it for four hours. No light came on. Does that mean it didn't work, and if so, why not? I have used this mp3 player for about three months, and when it stopped working I assumed it needed charging. There is no sound on my ipod.

Hi,

If I may offer an alternative method...

Pls try:

  • any other USB device such as a printer, webcam. This is to determine if it is the PC's USB port that may be the problem;
  • plug the iPod/charger into another/2nd PC to check if it will charge, otherwise it is an iPod/charger problem;
  • go to the Device Manager of the PC, expand Universal Serial Bus controllers, highlight USB Root Hub, right click on Properties, click on Power Management and un-check "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power". Do this in all instances of the USB Root Hub.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

I have an ipod model a1199. i was wondering if you can use a newer ipod touch charger for it? and if not what kind of charger does it use?


Charge an iPod Nano Without a Charger
If you've misplaced or broken the charger that came with your iPod Nano, you might think you need to purchase a new one in order to continue using your Mp3 player.
However, there is a way that you can continue enjoying your iPod without having to purchase a new charger.
As long as you have a USB cord and a computer, you can charge your iPod without having the charger.

Locate the USB cord that came with your iPod Nano package.
It is the same cord that you use in order to sync or transfer music.
Plug the small end into your iPod Nano.

Plug the other, larger end into your computer's USB port.
Choose "Do Nothing" when your computer presents the dialogue box to let you choose what to do with the hardware or USB connection.
Leave your Nano plugged into your computer for at least 4 hours to charge.
Unplug your iPod Nano when charging is complete.
Charge an iPod Without the Charger
Many iPod owners purchase a charging unit that plugs into a standard wall outlet to recharge the iPod's battery.
However, the iPod wall charger is not included with new purchases, so consumers must either purchase a separate charger or find a way to charge their iPod using other means.
Here's a simple method to charge your iPod using your computer.

Plug the iPod USB cable into the bottom of your iPod.
Plug the other end of the iPod USB cable into a free USB port on your Mac or PC computer.

Open the iTunes program by clicking on the icon in the Dock on a Mac or using the Start menu on a PC.
Click on the name of your iPod under the "Devices" heading in the main iTunes window.
Click on the "Sync" button to synchronize your iPod with your computer data.
While the iPod is syncing, the power from the USB port on your computer will charge your iPod's battery.

Unplug your iPod from the computer once the battery is fully charged.

This one should be ok.

Tip

The iPod USB Charger


<p>The USB cable that came with all iPod has two purposes: to your device to your computer so you can update and add music, and iPod to charge. All iPods have a lithium ion battery stops charging when the battery is full, the total life of your battery is not affected if you leave the iPod is connected to a power source. It usually takes four hours to recharge most iPods. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Connect the USB connector into an available high-power USB 2.0 port on your computer. Low-power USB ports, such as those in external keyboards and hubs do not work. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect the 30-pin connector at the other end of the USB cable 30-pin connector on your iPod. If you charge an iPod shuffle, there is no dock connector port. Instead, use the connector on the other end of USB cable that fits in the headset. Set the iPod down and let it recharge. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Unplug the USB cable when the iPod battery indicator is full. If you charge an iPod shuffle, the green light will appear. <br />

Please be aware that USB keyboards and non-powered USB hubs generally do not have high-power USB ports.


If you connect to a low or non-powered port, iPod shuffle will not charge.

The computer must be turned on and set to not go to sleep.


Plug the other end of the iPod shuffle USB Cable into the headphone port on the iPod shuffle.

Verify the iPod shuffle is connected securely.

How to recharge the Apple iPod Shuffle Silver MP3 Player


According to the manual found here: http://manuals.info.apple.com/en/ipodshuffleuserguide.pdf

"Remove the USB cap and connect iPod shuffle to a high-power USB port on your
computer. The battery status light on the back of iPod shuffle turns on.
The iPod shuffle battery is 80-percent charged in about two hours, and fully charged in
about four hours.
When the battery is charging, the iPod shuffle status light is amber. When the battery is
fully charged, the light is green until you disconnect iPod shuffle. If you don't see the
status light, try another USB port on your computer"

Batteries also wear out from time to time, so if you find that it's not charging no matter what you do, it's likely that you need a new battery. Here's a link to more info on iPod batteries: http://www.apple.com/batteries/ipods.html

How do i download songs to my iPod model no.A1204 EMC no. 2125? and how to charge it?


As with all iPods, you must use Apple's iTunes application to sync your music with your iPod Shuffle.

You'll need to install the latest iTunes by downloading it from Apple click here> and then installing it. You install iTunes like any other downloaded program by double-clicking on the resulting icon after iTunes has successfully downloaded.
Follow the on-screen directions to install iTunes.
Once iTunes is installed, start up iTunes and have it search your computer for music for it to manage for you. While that is going on, plug the white USB cable that came with your iPod into your iPod Shuffle and into one of the USB ports on your computer. This will trigger iTunes to recognize your iPod Shuffle and ask you whether you want to set it up with this computer.

Follow the on-screen prompts to sync your iPod Shuffle with your computer.

To charge your iPod Shuffle, just keep it plugged in to your computer using the supplied white USB cable. Keep the cable connected until the battery indicator on the ipod Shuffle shows that the battery is full.

Thanks for using FixYa and Happy New Year!
