The power button (more like a slide) on the bottom right side will turn it on once it's ejected from the computer. Hold the slide in, and let go after a second or two. Give it a few seconds (like 10) and it should power on. I got mine as a gift and am still working through the interface.
I had a similar problem, mine wouldn’t turn on unless I plugged it in the computer and then it still wouldn’t work!
I found this on Sony’s trouble shooter -
Battery is 100% discharged. Therefore, PC's USB with 5V/500mA set up has not enough power to start up the charging process because loading current is greater than the set up, therefore USB is disabled immediately due to sudden current load.
Battery must not be discharged 100%
If it happens then the supplied AC adaptor must be used firstly because it is providing 5V/800mA power. After a couple of minutes the unit can be connected to PC without problem then it can continue the charging during file transfer, etc.
So I bought a USB adapter charger! Plugged it in and now it is working!
HOPE IT WORKS FOR YOU!
try holding down the centre button and the menu buttons at the same time until the apple logo apprears this should now restart the ipod, you may have to plug it in to attempt to charge it if the battery has died, good luck!!
I just solved a similar problem with my Walkman. When I'd plug it into my computer, it wouldn't charge. I read in the troubleshooting section of the manual that it could be a problem with the computer or its USB connection. I connected my mp3 player to a different computer and it charged fine. If it's not responding at all, you may want to try the reset button (if your model has it). Hope that helps!
i had my GFs mp3 player and it was flashing green light, not solid, but still was frozen and couldnt even bring it up on my computer after plugging in the USB cable. but i just tapped the reset button on top right side, and it stopped flashing and turned off. i turned it back on and started to play normally. not sure if it will be the same since the light situation is different, but the reset button worked for me. good luck
Power & Hold switch
Slide and hold in the opposite direction
of the arrow for power on/off.
Slide in the direction of the arrow to
lock the button functions.
If that fails,
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
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
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
