Hi, have you had the iPod for a while, and this has just started to happen? In that case, try doing a factory reset in iTunes. Is it a new iPod? In that case, have you made sure that some music has synced onto it? Look for the iPod in iTunes, and turn the triangle thingy that shows you the iPod's contents, and make sure that there are songs in the folder "music".
please read and watch this video whit pronlem on youtube , when i start the ipad to play music the led is green and is blinghig short i can't play music , hawe some ideeas what is possible to have ?? please help me . the video whit prolem is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_YZgNAcUgbI&feature=youtu.be
Apologies if this sounds obvious, but I want to make sure we are on the same page. In the video there are no earphones plugged into the iPod. It doesn't have an inbuilt speaker, so whatever buttons you press, if there are no earphones connected, there will not be any sound. Apart from that the behaviour in iTunes looks fairly normal and correct.
The only other help I've found online that might be relevant is this excerpt from AskDaveTaylor:
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
