First check the battery to make sure it's in correctly. Remove the back panel to do this and look for the contacts. Make sure they align correctly with the contacts on the battery.

Try depressing the reset button which is next to the HOLD switch for about 5-10 seconds.

Attempt to power up the device on its own. If it powers up then try clearing all data and resetting to default.

Connect the device to a PC and see if it connects. Perform a full formatting to FAT-32 (or FAT-16). Eject and disconnect the device after the formatting is completed. Atempt to power on the unit on its own.

If all works you can try to load one song and see if it'll play. If yes, then use as normal.

How can i delet a song from iphone

If you want to delete music from iPhone, you can take fully advantage of iTunes. After you purchased songs in iTunes Store on iPhone, your iTunes will also save the purchase history, so you don't have to worry about losing the purchased music files. When you connect iPhone to computer with USB cable, iTunes will launch automatically and recognize your iPhone. You can create a new playlist which contains only the music you need, and then sync it to your iPhone. By doing this, you can remove the unwanted music from iPhone.
  1. Click the iPhone icon at the upper left corner.
  2. Choose Music in the left sidebar.
  3. Check Sync Music choose Selected playlists, artists, albums and genres.
  4. Select the playlist which only contains the songs you need. Then click Sync.

Deleting songs from iphone

you should be able to go into itunes and delete the songs, then sync your iphone again. If that doesn't help then I would go into the apple store and see why not. you can also just call apple for support for free if you are an at&t subscriber good luck

How to delete music off of the ipod shuffle?

You can either do a restore:
Connect to your computer and open itunes.
When you first open itunes you should be in "Devices"
Make sure you're in the "Summary" tab and you will have a button that says "Restore"
Click that and it will do the rest.

Sync with an itunes library that has no files on it, this will also remove the files from your ipod.

Changed pc and new pc cannot work with ipod

You can download a developers version, not the final product of Songbird. It works just like itunes, but less problematic. It will allow you to "mount" the ipod as a disk, then you can save, the songs to your PC. It will ask you if you want to sync with it, just say no and you will be able to view the contents. I didnt make Songbird, I have just used it recently for the same problem. Best of Luck.
