    I have same problem. I purchase a TEAC Model SR-LXI, that allow me to play ipod touch, but doesn´t charge it. I looking for the solution in TEAC web sites, but still have not the solution.



    I think must to be a fix to apply, since the TEAC and MAC already talk about the new incoming Ipod technology.

Certain speaker systems and docking stations will not charge the new iPod touches and nanos because Apple changed their charging standard from 12v FireWire to 5v USB. You can still use the speakers to play music, but I'm afraid you can't use them to charge it.

Hi there,

Some speaker systems which are only compatible for charging the ipod nanos and classics do not work with the iPod Touch and the iPhone, the internals are slighly different from one another which will not allow that speaker system to charge your iTouch.

To play & Charge your touch, i suggest getting a speaker system that supports the iPod touch platform.

Hope this helps ?!

Ipod 120 g classic will not finish a song or it will reboot


I had the same problem with a 30gig classic.
The songs would play fine on my wife's itouch.
I tried every suggestion I could find No luck.
I installed media monkey and use it to load my classic EVERY SONG PLAYS FINE. Using the same songs in iTunes they stopped playing completely .I didn't have this problem using 7.5 iTunes but the iTouch needs the newer version

Ipod doc wont charge my ipod?


Certain iPod docks will not work for the iTouch. When I first got mine I had an older iPod dock and it wouldn't charge mine either. Depending on the age of your dock it may be compatible for the itouch.

Will not recharge. screen absolutely blank and no


The problem can be in one of two places:

1: the power source (computer, wall charger, whatever you're using to charge)

2: your iTouch


If you have a second charger, or car charger, or can borrow a friend's charger, try using that first. If you're able to get the green "Charging" battery with an alternate charger, then your iTouch is fine and you just need a new (cheap!) charger for it.

If your iTouch still doesn't charge with a known-good charger, then your best bet is to find the closest Apple Store and take it in for testing there. When my iTouch stopped connecting to WiFi networks, they tested it to verify the problem and handed me a new replacement on the spot.

Good luck, and let me know if this helped!

Ihome won't play ipod, even after resetting ipod I have de same problem. I got an itouch 2nd generation and docked it on a speaker that supports it. It worked fine for two or three hours, but suddenly it...


Welcome to the wonderful world of the iHome frying the Ipod.
Your iHome, has most likely fried the mainboard on your ipod.
to check plug a usb into the ipod and connect to the computer.
if it comes up disconnect the usb and try a headphones in the jack.
if it doesn;t play sound its fried and you will need a new mainboard.
if it does play through the headphone jack, your lucky and keep it off the dock.

I have fixed at least 30 ipods taken out by ihome docks and other docks.
they are terrible for the ipod. Even Apple sells the docks on their website
that shows how much they care about the product.

If this helps leave a vote on fixya

Ipod nano not charging on docking system, it has low battery if none, can play with a little charge on ipod but has to be charged with plug first, the docking system is brand new aswell and is charging...


for some **** reason the new ipod nano (4th generation) does not support FireWire and therefore will not charge on any docking station that is a FireWire power sorce - which seems to be most of them out there!
have same problem so will end up charging from computer as docking station still plays the new nano, no point in buying new docking station just for sake of charging!
