No response from ipod shuffle

My ipod shuffle was working fine on Monday and now I get no response whatsoever - no lights flashing and no recognition when connecting to my pc. Does this mean it's totally broken?

When I turn on my ipod shuffle & hit play it blinks green and orange several times and won't play


The Apple iPod shuffle is a digital music player that contains a single indicator light that relays information about the device's battery condition, computer connection and any errors the device is having. The indicator light is capable of blinking red, green or orange as well as displaying a steady red, green or orange light. The iPod Shuffle includes a Universal Serial Bus interface and buttons on the front of the device for controlling music files.

Blinking Orange A blinking orange light indicates the iPod Shuffle is receiving an update via iTunes to the device's internal components. The update could include a patch to repair an error the player encountered once before, an update to the player's file-saving software, or a combination of security, repair and software updates. Updates are free and automatically sent directly from Apple through iTunes to your iPod shuffle before a sync process starts. Disconnecting iPod Shuffle When the player's light is blinking orange, do not unplug the device from your computer's USB port this will stop the update process and possible corrupt the device's internal hard drive. Let the update process and sync process finish before clicking "Eject" within iTunes and removing the player. Disk Use Enabled If you use your iPod Shuffle as a flash drive and not as a music player, a blinking orange light means that the device is connected to your computer and ready to accept files. The "Disk Use" enabled setting is changeable within iTunes if you decide to use your iPod Shuffle for music storage instead of file storage. When set up as a flash drive, the iPod Shuffle is assigned a drive letter by your computer's operating system and the drive lets you "drag and drop" files to the device. b> Charging If your iPod shuffle's battery is completely depleted or low on charge, connect the player to your computer immediately for charging then leave it connected to receive any updates to the device's software and internal components. Its indicator light may or may not blink orange until after it is fully charged. If the battery is low on charge or completely depleted, you may receive an error stating that the iPod is corrupt or needs restoring, close the error message and let the device fully charge.

My ipod shuffle 2nd generation keeps flashing blue light and i do not know why?


On October 26, 2006, Apple released an iPod Shuffle Reset Utility that corrected this problem for some owners of first-generation iPod Shuffles Then, in March 2007, an updated iPod Reset Utility was released which can also address similar problems with second-generation iPod Shuffles.
Good luck, I hope this helped

it could be your flash memory is corrupt or that you need to reformat and re-install the latest ipod/itunes software. if you continue having problems you should contact your local apple store they should be able to figure out the problem.

1st series ipod shuffle...working fine did latest install from itunes and now ipod will sync but won't play...does repeating of green and orange lights. Tried the restore and resetting but still not...


Here's simple steps to cure the problem if your iPod shuffle won't play and does that green-yellow-green-yellow-green-yellow blinking thing:

  1. Plug in iPod shuffle
  2. You'll notice the "Podcasts" play list under your iPod volume.
  3. Delete the "Podcasts" playlist.
  4. ITunes will re-sync
  5. Unmount the iPod Shuffle and everything should be fine.

If that doesn't work try the link below. It's for the iPod Shuffle (1st generation) restore utility.

Hope it helps.

New ipod shuffle just flashes orange light in the dock


Hi pa86,

If the light just flashes Orange when connected it means that it is trying to sync to iTunes. This is normal. If it continues to flash for an extraordinary amount of time then there is a problem with the Shuffle. The best thing to do is reset and restore the Shuffle. Refer to page 23 of the Shuffle Manual.

All the best

My Computer and iTunes does not recognize my iPod


Hold in play/pause, and then connect to PC

I don't completely understand the "Firweire" reference. The manual (and logic) does not indicate that a firewire connection would work. Plain old USB for this device.
