When plugged in with usb to my iMac with 10.8.2, iTunes opens and indicates battery is at 99%, but the light either blinks orange or remains solid orange.  When unplugged and switched to on, the light (battery indicator) does not come on.  Is my unit dead?  Time to toss it and buy another?  It is only 13 mo. old and has been used lightly on a monthly basis. 


BTW, we have another shuffle of same age that works and charges just fine, so it is not a problem with iTunes or the usb cable. 

iPod shuffle (4th generation), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
