Your battery is probaby running out of power faster because of the iPods ae. You can either bring it to and Apple store and have it fixed or send it to them. There are also repairmen around that should be able to do it for you. There also is a site called ifixit.com which will sell u the new battery and tell you how to replace it but beware THIS VOIDS YOUR WARRENTY! It also has the chance of you doing something wrong and breaking it even more... So my suggestion is to send it to Apple or get it fixed by a certified Apple technician.

How to recharge the Apple iPod Shuffle Silver MP3 Player


According to the manual found here: http://manuals.info.apple.com/en/ipodshuffleuserguide.pdf

"Remove the USB cap and connect iPod shuffle to a high-power USB port on your
computer. The battery status light on the back of iPod shuffle turns on.
The iPod shuffle battery is 80-percent charged in about two hours, and fully charged in
about four hours.
When the battery is charging, the iPod shuffle status light is amber. When the battery is
fully charged, the light is green until you disconnect iPod shuffle. If you don't see the
status light, try another USB port on your computer"

Batteries also wear out from time to time, so if you find that it's not charging no matter what you do, it's likely that you need a new battery. Here's a link to more info on iPod batteries: http://www.apple.com/batteries/ipods.html

Ipod won't power on. Computer won't recognize it.


Step 1: Check to see if your iPod can still be charged by charging it using a wall charger and wait for it to fully recharge.
Step 2: If it does charge fully, try using your iPod normally and see how long it lasts. If it lasts for only 2 hours, your iPod battery may be dying. If it doesn't charge at all your iPod may be dead.
Step 3: If either of the cases are true then you have two options:
  1. If your iPod is less than a year old, you can bring in your iPod to the Apple Store and have it replaced for free on the spot as part of its 1 year warranty.
  2. If it is older than 1 year, you can go to the Apple Store and have them replace the battery for a fee
  3. If you are looking for a new iPod anyway, go to the Apple Store with your old iPod, and tell them you are looking for a new iPod. They will give you a 10% discount when you hand your old one in.

After charging my MP3 player it appears fully charged but it will only play for about an hour and the battery runs down. i have recharged it again, same thing. now what?


The very first time you charge your battery YOU MUST CHARGE IT FULLY!!! If you didn't, that is probably the problem.

Also, even if you charge the player for just a couple of minutes it will APPEAR to have a fully charged battery when it actually doesn't.

Most portable media devices require at least 20 minutes to an hour to fully charge whether the screen shows that it is fully charged or not.

Ipod 30gb battery shuts off in 30 minutes


your issue could be one of 2 things.
Either your battery is becoming old and needs to be replaced or your mainboard is malfunctioning and causing the low battery signal.

If you have your music library backed up in iTunes, I would connect the iPod and restore the firmware. You can accomplish this by pressing the restore button in itunes.

If your battery is more than 2 years old, replace it and see if the problem goes away,

All you can really do is make sure the iPod is fully charged before watching.  Video files require more system reosurces than music files, so it is very possible that it will run down in a couple of hours or less. There are no longer-lasting batteries that can be used with this particular mp3 player.

Battery Symbol and "charged" stay on iPod screen


You could try restoring the software back to factory defaults and see if something is missing. Make sure it is fully charged before doing it.

Hold down on the center button while hold down on the menu button. The apple logo will appear. Your Ipod is now rebooted.

Is the new battery fully charged? Usually it takes 6 hours on a new battery.

1. totally discharge the battery so it wont come on.

2. Charge the battery fully

3. Reset the player

Now check how long the battery lasts. If it is still 2 hours there is a problem with the battey and you will need to return the player.
