My wife and I recently purchased a small JBL stereo docking station for our IPod Nano. Once the Nano is connected, a remote control can be used for basic functions including turning on, volume adjustment, and shutting down the Nano.
Problem: the IPod will not shut down manually when it is either docked or undocked, even after resetting system settings. This problem began after nearly 2 months of use. It will shut down with the remote control when docked.

Connecting the iPod via headphone jack All you need
is a simple Y cable, which is available from any home-electronics store.
Connect the small plug to the headphone output of your iPod--or any
portable audio player. Then connect the red and white RCA-style plugs to
the matching inputs on the back of your stereo receiver or boombox.
Connecting the iPod via iPod dock To connect using
the iPod dock, you first need to purchase an iPod dock accessory. Using
the same type of Y cable, connect the small plug to the matching jack on
the rear of the iPod dock. Then, plug the red and white RCA-style plugs
to the matching inputs on the back of your stereo receiver or boombox.
This method provides a line-level connection that maintains a volume
level to your stereo system and allows the iPod to recharge.
Connecting the iPod via wireless FM transmitter You
can also connect your iPod to your stereo wirelessly. You'll need to
purchase a compatible wireless FM transmitter--there are several
available--and connect it your iPod. Once your transmitter is connected,
simply tune any nearby radio to the correct frequency, and you'll be
listening to your own iPod-powered mini radio station.
It will actually work, however,
you will not be able to dock the iPod® Nano into the JBL On Stage™.
You can connect the audio in cable to the headphone jack of your iPod. That's the only way, hope this helps. Pls rate solution. Thanks!!
Hi, I have this problem and when I spoke to JBL techical support they told me that Apple have changed their software on the New Nano and the ipod touch and of course the iphone and regrettably the radial does not support S video for these products. I'm told it will work with first generation ipod classics. PS: i had to carefully cut off some of the plastic plug to make sure the connection goes all the way into the back of the radial
This compatibility issue is caused by the same change with the Apple
Dock Connecter introduced with the iPhone 3G. Inside the iPod / iPhone
Dock Connecter are 30 metal pins. Previous iPods and iPhones allowed
for charging either over pins reserved for the USB connection or pins reserved for the obsolete Firewire connection.
Apple apparently announced this upcoming change to manufactures of
“Made for iPod” accessories back in 2005, Apple only formerly
discontinued Firewire charging support with the most recent iPods. New
iPods and iPhones can only charge via the USB pin.
As such, there is no way that a software update can fix this issue in the future; this is truly a modification in iPod hardware.
I have had exactly the same problem having bought a JBL Radial Micro for my partner for Xmas for use with the Ipod Nano, i contacted JBL via their website and was advised to contact Harmen on 01707278100. I was advised that the new ipod nano (chromatic) would not charge on the JBL radial micro. They stated that this was due to Apple changing the charging pin in the new nano. I have since bought a JBL Stage III. I contacted Harmen before buying this and was advised that the Stage II would not work. Hope that this is of use.
