To turn your iPod shuffle on, you have to locate the switch button on the top of your device. Slide the switch to turn iPod shuffle on. If you see green color on the side of the switch, your iPod is on, if you don’t see green, it’s off.
If your iPod is not turning on after a few seconds, the battery is probably drained. Charge the battery. In this case, connect the iPod to a wall outlet using the cable that came with it.
