Battery problems, in my opinion, is the worst problem you can have. The reason I say that is that almost every problem I have seen as an iPod repairman can start from a depleted battery. When the battery depletes it can cause phantom problems and mimick other issues. I have seen it say full battery, bad hard drive, will not connect, folder icon, constantly freezing, constantly rebooting, you name it. You can replace your battery and often times it will correct the problem along with a restore. Unfortunatly when repairing anything you have to replace some parts to narrow down where the problem lies. There is a possibility that the battery is bad but went bad becuase of another issue.
I would go in this order: replace the battery, if it doesn't fix it, restore (you will lose everything on your ipod so back up your files), if still no fix, replace. You can usually sell your broken ipod on ebay for a decent price to off set the price of a new one. You can also get a refurbished one on apple.com/store with a year warrenty for way cheaper. Good luck.

Ipod will not let me listen to a full song


If it's just with the one song, it could just be the way that it's put on your ipod. I used to find that sometimes, a perfectly fine audio file would screw up when I put it on my ipod. I found that if I deleted it and replaced it, it worked fine.

If it's with more than the one song, I can only recommend doing a full restore, or updating your iPod if it's out of date (restore should work fine)

Ipod shuffle (2nd gen) completely dead


you are still under warranty...take it to the sony apple store...they will fix it /replace it or tell you there is cost if it not the battery (note do not tell them you charged overnight, and for the future do chage any gadgets more than 3-4 hrs) when you do charge over night you are actually shorten the battery life span or overcharge....so as soon as you come home from school,work,whatever cell/ipod or any other device needs to be charge...charge it now and unplug before you go to bed....

You should try using a different USB cable and connecting to a different USB port and seeing if the problem persists. If it does, the problem's probably with the iPod's logic board.

Song on a shuffle pattern


I ran into the same problem about a month back. I tried everything to fix it. I finally brought it into the Apple Store and they said something inside the iPod was fried and they didnt have the tools to open it up and fix it righ there. They guy just gave me a new one for $32 (a battery recycle fee) I didnt have a warrenty but it was less then a year old. MY suggestion is to bring it in and see if they can fix it but more then likely your going to need a reapair.
