If the status light blinks orange when you press a button, the iPod shuffle buttons are
disabled. Press and hold Play/Pause (’) for about three seconds, until the status light
blinks green.

My ipod nano 8GB will not turn on what do i do?

i have a few things for you to do first are simple and 2nd is to try a hard reset.
make sure it is charged

hold down the "select" and the "menu" buttons together until the apple logo pops up.

if this doesnt work then lets try a hard reset
To reset an iPod with a Click Wheel, including:
  • iPod nano (4th generation)
  • iPod nano (3rd generation)
  • iPod nano (2nd generation)
  • iPod nano
1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
2. Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.
If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.
if that doesnt work take it to a store that sells them and see what they say. If it is under warranty get it repaired for free. If it is not look into how much it will cost to have it repaired versus replacing and figure out what is more cost effective.

if you need further assistance on any of the steps please let me know and i will be glad to
assist you. Thanks and have a great day.

I plugged in my i pod and came back a hour later and the screen was black and was frozen and none of the buttons would work

you will need to reset your ipod this will not delete songs. 1 Toggle the Hold switch on and off (slide it to HOLD and then back again).
2 Press and hold Menu and the Center button for at least 6 seconds, until the
Apple logo appears.
If iPod nano won’t turn on or respond
â Make sure the Hold switch isn’t set to HOLD.
â The iPod nano battery might need to be recharged. Connect iPod nano to your
computer or to an Apple USB Power Adapter and let the battery recharge. Look for
the lightning bolt icon on the iPod nano screen to verify that iPod nano is receiving
a charge.
To charge the battery, connect iPod nano to a USB 2.0 port on your computer.

Ipod Shuffle is not working! Please help!

I had the same problem with a new 2nd gen shuffle connecting it to my PowerMac G5 (OSX 10.4.11) with the latest iTunes (8.0.1). The problem is in the connector. The shuffle using the same connector for listening, syncing with iTunes, and charging. It appears to be insufficient for the G5 to interface with it because when I swapped it for a new Nano, the Nano worked just fine. I tried 2 new 2nd gen shuffles (and hours with in-store so-called genius's as well as tech supp in CA and noone could come up with a resolution). So I figured it had to be in the cable interface (the Nano using a multi-pin connection like the old ipod's used to) and that was exactly the problem. I spoke to someone who said they had a G4 and the shuffle worked fine with that, so it must just be a G5 issue.

Hope this helps....
