Ipod shuffle 2 will not respond possibly dead battery wont charge

For some reason, my second generation ipod shuffle has stopped responding at all. i assume the battery is dead, but it will not charge. itunes does not show that an ipod is plugged in and no light is flashing from the ipod. i could take it to the apple store but the closest one is an hour away. i dont feel like making the drive if i dont have to.

SOURCE: IPOD Shuffle (the tiny silver one) won't charge

Is the IPod able to be recognized on the computer? If not, you could try the 5 R's,


You could also try to restore the ipod back to factory defaults and see if that would help

SOURCE: Ipod shuffle doesn't respond at all

I found that I couldn't connect the shuffle through the front (unpowered) USB port in my computer. It would just flash lights at me and the pc wouldn't recognize it. When I attached the cable to the powered USB port in the back of the pc, it worked. I only discovered this after returning a shuffle because of this problem

SOURCE: iPOd Shuffle 2nd Generation incompatibilities with iTunes

Couple of things,
1. You need to choose a playlist to sync music with ur iPod. Make sure you selected a playlist with some songs in it. 2. Disconnect ur iPod, restart the PC and then try to sync
3. Try an upload from a different computer.
If none of these work, then you need to restore ur iPod using iTunes, check out apple's site to do it and then try it.

My ipod wont charge

There are only three possible causes of the problem for the iPod that's not charging.

1. Dead battery
2. Loose connection
3. Bad charging cable

* First, you may want to try to use another cable then try to charge your iPod. Or you may try to connect it to different USB ports of the computer and see if the same problem will occur.

If that did not help, then you need to send the iPod to the manufacturer and have them check the battery and possible loose wire connection inside.

Thank you and good luck!

My iPod shuffle will not charge

If iPod shuffle won’t turn on or respond
â 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.
â Connect iPod shuffle to a high-power USB port on your computer. Your iPod shuffle
battery may need to be recharged.
â Turn iPod shuffle off, wait five seconds, and then turn it on again.
â You may need to restore iPod shuffle software. See “Updating and Restoring
iPod shuffle Software” on page 26.
