Hey 2hitz,

According to information provided by the manufacturer, when the power supply light is red this can typically mean that the XBox 360's external power supply (AC adaptor) has encountered a problem and may need to be repaired or replaced. Most problems encountered are typically limited to an issue where the system has overheated or there is too much voltage/electrical current for the power supply to handle.

I'd first suggest checking to see if the AC adaptor is properly connected to your XBox 360 or is warm to the touch. If the adaptor is hot, you may wish to unplug the adaptor for several hours to cool before reconnecting it to your XBox 360. Even if it is fairly cool, you may still want to see if disconnecting and reconnecting the adaptor resolves the issue. If the power light changes from red to an orange hue once you do, this can mean that the power supply may not have been securely attached and the unit is now in standby mode.

Next, if you have access to a second power adaptor, you may want to see if switching adaptors resolves the issue instead. If the XBox 360 goes into standby mode with a different adaptor plugged in but not the original, then the original adaptor may be defective and be in need of replacement.

Please keep in mind however, that if the lights around the power indicator light are also flashing red this may be a sign of an entirely different hardware problem. If you are seeing any of the lights in the outer ring light up, you may want to take note of which ones (and how many) are lighting up at any given time. Typically one flashing red light in the outer ring may indicate a hard drive problem, two red lights may indicate the XBox 360 itself has overheated, three red lights mean that the unit requires service/repairs, and four red lights mean that your audio-video (AV) cable isn't securely connected.

If you're still not quite sure how to proceed, you can always visit Microsoft's knowledge base website for more information and suggestions by using the link I've provided below:

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

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.

I press the power button and the pearl logo comes on then it goes off with out saying please wait or loading i tried a brand new battery and nothin! i plug it into the computer and the music still wont put...


Try removing the battery, insert Pearl WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY PRESSING and HOLDING the "PLAY" button. Windows Device Manager should see the device under "Human Interface Devices"as a "USB Human Interface Device". Run the latest firmware update, it will see the HID device and initialize it as a "Disk Drive", "_Generic MSC Recovery USB Device". Once the firmware update is complete the Pearl should work again. The trick was to remove the battery and hold down the "Play" button while inserting to force recovery mode.

Hi,
have a look to see if theres a reset button or switch anywhere. sometimes a small hole in the casing to insert a small driver/needle.
connect to the PC with a USB Cable ( if it has 1 )
If not, possible faulty unit, or insufficient Battery Power. use high power Batterys. Duracell or Similar.
