    Do you have a 1st Gen shuffle (the white upright one with teh USB connector on the bottom) or an aluminum 2nd gen one with the built in clip? The reason I ask is that the ligh behavior (green ligh on while charging) is not at all typical of a 2nd Gen shuffle. HOWEVER, IF it's a 2nd Gen, you ought to take it to an Apple Store for analysis and possible replacement.

    Okay.. Well.... I wrote above (Second Generation). And the LED light has always blinked green when I've put it into the charger. The only time Ipod shuffle isn't suppsoed to blink is when inserted into a non high speed USB port. I'm using the same USB port I've been using. So I have no clue what's wrong. It was raining yesterday and it may have gotten a little wet but not more then a few drops and I don't think that should be the prtoblem as others have washed theres by accident before.

    Please tell me how the following description of status light behavior of the 1st Gen shuffle matches what you've said above:

    from page 16 of the iPod shuffle User Guide:

    To charge the iPod shuffle battery:
    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. Note:

    If iPod shuffle is being used as a disk (see page 18), the status light blinks amber continuously.

    ...

    Here's the 2nd Gen shuffle version:

    When the battery is charging, the status light on iPod shuffle is orange. When the battery is fully charged, the status light turns green.

    Note: If iPod shuffle is being used as a disk (see page 19) or if iTunes is loading songs or settings onto iPod shuffle, the status light blinks orange...

    I meant it always blinks this orangeish color. Also it doesn't even blink at all anymore because it doesn't even work anymore. If I plug it in, nothing happens. If I try to tunr it on, nohing happens. The computer doesn't recognize it's even there.
