How long have you had the unit? If it's been a year and a half or 2 years your battery needs to be replaced. They loose their ability to retain a charge in that time frame, and when you test a good battery or a bad battery they will both read 3.6v as a tester does not put a load on the battery, meaning you have 3.6v when the unit is off but when it turns on (load) it drops to zero. You could also try resseting the unit, to do so follow these instructions. To reset iPod shuffle: Disconnect iPod shuffle from the computer (if connected). Move the switch on the back of iPod shuffle to the off position. Tip: When iPod shuffle is off, the green stripe by the switch is not visible. Wait 5 seconds. Move the switch on the back to the play in order or the shuffle position. The green stripe will be visible in either position. iPod shuffle is now reset. If after resetting iPod shuffle you are going to attach it to your computer, be sure to place the switch in the off position. If you were resetting as part of some troubleshooting steps, continue with those steps now. For general troubleshooting steps see the iPod shuffle troubleshooting and service FAQ.

My ipod wont shuffle anymore


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.

Syncing without deleting content on ipod shuffle.


this happened to me too with my iTouch. i had to plug it into my comp, quickly stop it from syncing, then i went under the tab on the left for my iPod. when i set it to manual syncing, it fixed the problem, but then you'll have to do everything by hand. if you want to keep it automatic, i think you'll have to let it format.

Cant get songs onto ipod shuffle.(daughter has ipod touch)


Hi there,
When you go into the ipod section on iTunes, click the music tab, make sure 'sync music' is checked and 'selected playlists:' is also, then check the playlist you want to use. Click 'sync' button

If that don't work go back to the summary tab and hit 'restore' and follow the instructions to reset the ipod, resync and all should be fine.
