    I'm having the same problem. Not my unit. Was trying to load music up for someone else. Worked intitially, ipod kept going off. Have tried to charge numerous times. Nothing. Could battery just be totally dead that it's not taking a charge?

If the shuffle is over 18mth old it might very well be the battery. However do just try a Reinstall of iTunes then an upgrade of the shuffle software if you can connect it. The other alternative if the thing still doesn't connect is that it's the main board or connector itself although these are more unlikely.
A new battery for a shuffle is about $5-10 (£3-6) on eBay and normally comes with instructions and tools.

All the best

How to Fix an iPod Shuffle That Won't Turn On


Things You'll Need:

* iPod Shuffle iPod USB cable Power adapter

The iPod Shuffle is the smallest member of Apple's line of MP3 players. During the device's lifetime, you may find that the iPod freezes or seems to not turn on anymore. Since the iPod Shuffle does not have a display attached to it, you cannot be notified of any device errors. However, there are several troubleshooting steps you can take to repair your iPod.


Instructions


Plug the iPod USB cable into the iPod Shuffle and then connect it to the power adapter to recharge the iPod's battery. The iPod Shuffle may not be turning on because its battery has fully drained.


Move the button on the back of the iPod Shuffle to the "off" position.


Wait five seconds with the iPod in "off" mode before switching the device back on. This process will reset the iPod Shuffle memory.


Connect the iPod Shuffle to your Mac or PC computer if it still will not turn on.


Open the iTunes program and sync your iPod with your computer. When you unplug your iPod from your computer, it should turn on normally again.

Hope it helped.

Have a nice day.

Computer won't recognize 2 gen ipod shuffle. Can't charge. Usb port is working but message "USB Device Not Recognized" HELP


Can it charge if you plug it into the usb charger in the wall?

If it can, that means that the inside of the shuffle is ok because it's still making a connection and charging. If not, you'll need to start replacing parts. If it charges, keep reading.

I'll assume your on Windows, so right-click My Computer > Properties > Hardware > Device Manager. Find your iPod (it will be under drives or something like that) right-click it and Uninstall.

Then go to Action (I think) > Scan for new devices and it will re-discover the iPod, and re-load the drivers for it.

Ipod is not recognized by itunes. it wont play or charge it just blinks 4 times when i plug it in


  1. The iPod reset utility will reset your iPod shuffle back to it's factory settings. It works for the following shuffles: iPod shuffle (1st Generation) - iPod Software version 1.1.5, iPod shuffle (2nd Generation) - iPod Software version 1.0.3
    The reset utility will fix the following issues.
    1. The iPod won't play music and can't be restored using iTunes
    2. iTunes won't see the iPod but you can see it under "My Computer" in windows or under Apple System Profiler on a Mac.
    3. iPod shuffle (1st Generation) is identified as a device in "Recovery mode." iPod shuffle (2nd Generation) is identified as a "USB DFU device."
  2. You have to have administrator privileges to run the restore software and it will wipe out all the information on the iPod (including all your music) and install factory software back onto it.
    System requirements are Mac OS X 10.3.9, or later, Win2k with sp4, Win XP, this won't work on Vista.
    Download the file for the program here:
    MAC
    http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/ipodresetutility102formac.html
    Windows
    http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/ipodresetutility102forwindows.html
  3. Install the software onto your computer, plug your iPod into the USB port and run the reset program, it will ask for your permission to reset the iPod, answer yes and the process will proceed. After finishing the reset procedure then use iTunes or whatever software is used to access your iPod and load your music. Enjoy your toy!
