Hi,
Your battery might be going out. If you are sure that your battery is OK, then go to iTunes and make sure that you can see your iTunes library.

  1. Go to the menu bar and click on Edit. Then click on Select all. All of your music will be selected and turn blue.
  2. Right Click anywhere in the music library.
  3. You will get a message that asks if you want to edit all of your music library. You will click 'Yes'.
  4. A new window will open. There will be 4 tabs. Pick the one that says Options. There you will see a slider to adjust the volume in all of your music. The slider will be set in the middle. You can slide it to the right to about 80-90.
  5. Close your window. iTunes will begin changing the volume on all of your music.
  6. When it is finished, plug in your iPod and see how much different it sounds. Turn down the volumn on your iPod until you can readjust it.
Hope that helps.

To reset iPod shuffle:
  1. Disconnect iPod shuffle from the computer (if connected).
  2. Move the switch on the iPod shuffle to the OFF position. Note that when iPod shuffle is off, the green stripe by the switch is not visible. ht1655_1.gif ht1655_2.gif ht1655b_3.gif ht1655--4th_shuffle-001-en.png

  3. Wait five seconds. For iPod shuffle (3rd and 4th generation), wait ten seconds.
  4. Move the switch to the play in order or the shuffle position. The green stripe will be visible in either position. For iPod shuffle (2nd and 4th generation), slide the power switch on (and you can see the green stripe).

My ipod shuffle 2nd generation keeps flashing blue light and i do not know why?


On October 26, 2006, Apple released an iPod Shuffle Reset Utility that corrected this problem for some owners of first-generation iPod Shuffles Then, in March 2007, an updated iPod Reset Utility was released which can also address similar problems with second-generation iPod Shuffles.
Good luck, I hope this helped

Ipod shuffle wont play


If iPod shuffle isn’t playing music
â iPod shuffle might not have any music on it. If you hear the message “Please use
iTunes to sync music,” connect iPod shuffle to your computer to sync music to it.
â Slide the three-way switch off and then on again.
â Make sure the earphone or headphone connector is pushed in all the way.
â Make sure the volume is adjusted properly. A volume limit might be set. See “Setting
a Volume Limit” on page 25.
â iPod shuffle might be paused. Try clicking the Center button on the earphone remote

I Pod shuffle (2nd. generation) won't hold a charge


Hold in the play button for 10 seconds to reset. If that fails:
iPod shuffle Software Update and Restore
Apple periodically updates iPod shuffle software to improve performance or add
features. It is recommended that you update your iPod shuffle to use the latest
software.
You can choose either to update or to restore the iPod shuffle software.
If you choose to update, the software is updated, but your settings and songs are not
affected.
If you choose to restore, all songs and data are erased from your iPod shuffle. All
iPod shuffle settings are restored to their original state.
To update or restore iPod shuffle with the latest software:
1 Go to www.apple.com/support/ipod and download the latest iPod Update. The update
has the latest software for all models of iPod.
2 Double-click the software install file and follow the onscreen instructions to install the
iPod shuffle Update.
3 Connect iPod shuffle to your computer and open iTunes. The iPod Updater application
opens.
If you’re using a Windows PC and the iPod Updater application doesn’t open
automatically, you can find the updater by choosing Start > All Programs > iPod.
4 Follow the onscreen instructions to update or restore iPod shuffle software.
If you use the iPod Updater application and it doesn’t see that iPod shuffle is
connected to your computer, turn iPod shuffle off and turn it on again.

New Ipod Shuffle is not loading songs


Hi,
Generally you do not have to change the drive letter. There is a 'shuffle restore' program from Apple that you can download for free. Using this to restore your iPod will set it back to factory conditions. Do you have the latest version of iTunes on your computer? If not, you might want to try that also. Have you tried dragging your playlist into the Shuffle? I find that it helps with my shuffle to create playlists and have it fill out of them. That way I can change the playlist every day. Works for me. Hope that helps.

My Ipod shuffle does not work, when I switch on the ipod, I see orange light on and off..it does not show green. I charged the battery for more than 4 hours. Can anyone help ne why is this happening and...


I am not sure about the 1st generation but the 2nd generation definitely charges via the USB connection. If you don't hear the music its because there are no songs on your device. When you initially add songs, they go to the Library in iTunes, not the Shuffle. Just drag and drop your songs from the "Library" to your "Device" in iTunes and then you'll notice them get sync'd with the Shuffle.

No sound from a known working headset on my ipod shuffle 1st generation


The light should be Hoff when operating, and if you pause it it will blink. If you hold the play/pause button you will lock the keypad. this is to prevent accidental skipping/stoping/volumae changes while having it on your pocket. Hold the play button for two seconds or more to activate/deactivate this function. -Chris
