    My Airport Express starts up fine, and I see the Green light, and I am able to hear music through it fine. But after a few minutes the green light disappears (there is no other light), and I can't hear any music on it either. iTunes does not see the airport express anymore. If I unplug and plug it back in the same thing happens again.

    This just started happening a few days ago. Till then I had not issues.

    I tried to do a hard reset on my airport express, but now it seems the station shuts off even before completely starting up. The orange light started flashing and after a bit there was no light.

    Any ideas? I sure hope this is not some hardware issue. I just bought this airport express and I really don't want to buy a new one.

    are you updated to the latest firmware? Try that first, but it may be hardware issue and needs replacing.

    If a hard reset (try a few times) doesn't solve it, then take it back to Apple. If you just bought it, they'll sort it.
