Question about Apple iPod shuffle MP3 Player

1 Answer

My shuffle stopped working when i sweat all over it

I clipped the shuffle to my shorts before my workout and as i began working out it was fine. After i was sweating rather profusely it stopped. I switched it off then on again and it worked for about 20 seconds and stopped again. I repeated the prcoess and again, after abnout 20 seconds, it stooped. I have not been able to turn it on since and it cant be read by my computer when i put it on the charging pod. I get no lights whatsover. Is it just the battery or is the whole thing toast?

Based on your detailed post, I think it's toast. Liquid + electronics + power (repeatedly and attempting to charge it too in this case) usually = toast.
Sorry, you can try to let it dry out (without attempting to charge or power on in a dry environment) for an extended period (a week or so in this case) and then try to charge and power it on again, but it's recommended to do this (and remove the battery when possible) as soon as the liquid contamination is realized.

IPod classic stopped shuffling this weekend. I've had it for several months and it's worked just fine, but all of the sudden it stopped shuffling songs within playlists that were set to shuffle. ...


Hey press the play pause button and the enter button at the same time if it has a lock move it baca and forte 6 times while holding play pause button and enter/centered button for 6 seconds, that should solve from freezing ipods to non functioning well :)

It wont charge it blinks three times then stops


Hi,Okay, well, I don't want to be a shill for Apple (I mean, heck, I had to buy my Shuffle, so it's not like they're sponsoring this in any way! :-) so let's talk about the color sequences and what they mean.

First off, there are a number of different functions that are denoted by different color sequences, so flashing green might mean one thing when you're listening to music, and something else entirely when it's plugged in and charging or syncing with your PC.

The primary functions are powering on, charging, syncing, and general feedback. Let's look at each.

When you turn on your ipod shuffle, the light will indicate your current charge level:

green = 30-100% charge, you're good to cruise
orange = 10-30% charge, low, but still good for a short workout
red = less than 10% charge, time to plug it in
no light = too late, you've run out of juice

If you see an alternating pattern of green-orange-orange then your Shuffle's crashed or otherwise needs to be restored. Needless to say, that's not a good thing, but probably easy to fix when you hook it up to your PC or Mac.

When you're charging up your shuffle, there are three possible light states:

orange = charging
green = fully charged, unplug whenever you're ready to go
flashing orange = busy, either syncing or in use as a remote disk

When you're playing some music, you can see visual feedback on what's happening and what state you're in:

Press play and

solid green = you're playing music
flashing green = you're in pause mode

Press and hold play and

green-orange-orange-orange = you've disabled your buttons
orange-green-green-green = you've reenabled your buttons

That's bound to be one where people panic and fear that they've broken their shuffles, I bet. If your buttons aren't working at all on your Apple iPod Shuffle 2nd Gen, then press and hold your Play button to see what light sequence you're given. This is also shown by the Shuffle flashing orange when you push a button too.

If your player flashes alternating green and orange, you have no music in the shuffle. This can be because it's fresh out of the box, or because, well, something's happened and the music has vanished. Either way, time to sync with your iTunes library.

If you're seeing a flashing red sequence, you're just about out of battery and just need to plug it in so it can charge up.

Finally, Apple has some good tech notes on the new Shuffle too that you might want to check out if you're still a bit baffled by this tiny engineering wonder: Understanding status light behavior, Shuffle Second Gen, Frequently Asked Questions and iPod Shuffle Support Overview.

When I download music and want to save to Sansa Clip, it saves in "shuffle" mode. The MP3 files are not in the order I want. I can't seem to make it stop doing that.


Sansa Clip user manual:
http://mp3support.sandisk.com/sansa/UserManual/CLIP/CLIP_UM_English.pdf

When using Windows Media Player while synchronizing there is an extra option "Shuffle what syncs".
Page 14 of the pdf file [= page 12].

Seeing Sansa Clip in WMP on the left side:
1. Right click on the player
2. Select "Set Up Sync..."
3. Deselect the box "Shuffle what syncs..."

Motorola S9


Whenever I workout, I sweat from head to toe, and have the same issue, track changing on their own, volume adjusts to minimum by its self. Once this occurs, you can't "re-adjust" the volume, (until they dry out). Other controls don't seem to work either, (pause, forward / reverse tracks). Bottom line, if you workout, if you are like 99% of humans, you will sweat, and if you do, the same thing will happen. I am on my 2nd pair, about to be on my 3rd. Sadly, Motorola was way off when they said these were sweat and water resistant!

Mp3 player stuck on hold


I am having the exact same problem. During a workout it got wet while sweating, I removed the plastic outer case to allow it to dry out but it is still on hold and stuck there. Did anyone figure this out? Sony will exchange it for a refurbished one for $121 or repair it for $101. I only paid $90 for it. I guess I will buy on Ipod next time.
