Swimman Waterproofed Ipod 2gb Shuffle Care

Always connect your SWIMMAN Waterproof Headset to the SWIMMAN Waterproofed iPod before entering the water.

After each use you must follow the four (4) care procedures below*:

STEP #1: Keep the Headset connected to the iPod until you are out of the water.

STEP #2: Disconnect the Headset from iPod. This will electronically turn off the iPod in about 90 seconds.

STEP #3: After each use, carefully rinse off the entire iPod, Headset, Wires, Plug, Jack and Earbuds with FRESH, CLEAN water. Flick or shake out any water that may be in the iPod headset jack or water within the black Tubes and Earbud openings. Dry the iPod and Headset thoroughly, and hang Headset over a railing, towel bar or chair to drain and dry. Allow the iPod jack to drain with the jack opening facing down on a towel.

STEP #4: Store in a dry place with the headset disconnected. Do NOT store in a baggie or other material that does not breathe, as this will not allow residual moisture to escape!
Performing these important steps after each and every use will prolong the life of your SWIMMAN Waterproofed iPod and SWIMMAN Waterproof Headset! Chlorine and salt water are very corrosive and eventually weaken all materials. Good, regular care helps retard such damage.
* Failure to perform the above care steps with each use may void the warranty.

Ipod Issues?

The first of Apple’s 5 R’s will conquer most iPod issues. 

First of all, make sure your iPod is charged.  Charge your iPod directly through a USB port on your computer— not via a wall charger, hub or keyboard port.   If charging your iPod does not solve the problem, or you are unable to charge your iPod, continue with the step below.

STEP 1:  To RESET iPod 2GB shuffle:

a.  Eject your iPod shuffle from iTunes or your desktop, if connected.   To eject from iTunes, click Eject symbol to the right of your iPod under Devices (left-hand side of iTunes window).

To eject from your Desktop, In the Notifications area of the Taskbar, left-click the Safely Remove Hardware icon.  (Note: If you do not see the Safely Remove Hardware icon in the Taskbar, you can simply remove iPod shuffle from the dock.)  Choose Safely Remove USB Mass Storage Device from the shortcut menu. If you have other USB drives attached, you may need to repeat this if you're not sure which drive letter corresponds to your iPod.

b.  Remove iPod shuffle from the dock.

c.  Move the power switch on the bottom of iPod shuffle to the OFF position and HOLD it in this position for 10 seconds.*
d.  Push the power switch all the way to the "on" position. The green stripe will be visible.  iPod shuffle is now reset.

*Only use this ON/OFF slide switch for resetting your iPod and not for routine ON/OFF functions as described above. You have SWIMMAN's permission to move this On/Off button as instructed above for this instance.  Your warranty will remain in force as originally described. SWIMMAN will take full responsibility for any damage caused by moving this button for reset purposes only.
Did this solve your issue? 

YES:  Enjoy your Apple iPod 2GB shuffle waterproofed by SWIMMAN Australia
