Re: Sub Woofer to Sound Dock
Well if you are talking about the iM600 sounddock from Altec Lansing, the short answer is no. If you want better bass from an IPOD docking system you'll need to buy an expensive component from say Scandyna Dock or you could build one yourself. You would need an integrated amp or a complete system like the NAD C71. This would allow you to plug in a self-powered sub.

the material of which it is made has come into contact with a solvent ( fly spray, hair spray,cleaner agent, nail polish remover ) and the molecular structure is breaking down
it will be difficult to stop the stickiness as you will have to seal the surface first
the diagnostic mode won't check the audio, only the headphone jack. I suspect that the sound on your ipods motherboard went out. It happens! Have you been using the ipod on a dock, a speaker dock, any dock? If so the dock may have damaged the motherboard and too the sound out. Or the sound on the board just went out. You can fix the boards without special equipment and skill. If that has occurred, which if you replaced the headphone jack with a new one, has occurred you are looking at replacing the motherboard in your ipod. You can find a new motherboard on ebay for about 40.00 or so.
Hello Nada19, The dock connector is the connector at the bottom of the iPod which the USB cable you use to connect the iPod to your computer plugs into. This is also the connector that is used to connect your iPod to a "dock" such as this one. An iPod dock, like this one is a device that you drop your iPod into for charging. It typically also has a connection for external speakers that can be used with the dock. Not all models of iPod have a dock connector. And the actual layout of the dock connector varies from model to model. It sounds like you will need to use an iPod model that does have a dock connector to interface with the karaoke machine. You may also need an interface cable. Consult the documentation of your karaoke machine for more detailed info. Best Regards, Ken "Go Ahead. Use Us."
I don't understand people, why pay for a docking station... when all you need is a connector from you headphone input on the player to your stereo or boom-box which has an auxiliary input. The plug you can get at any store and it only cost about 3 - 10 dollars. The plug has the same end you use on your headphones and the other end is the same as the input connectors for your stereo unit. That end would have the 2 connectors (usually red and white) that you use when connecting units to your stereo's auxiliary input. Connect and listen to your music.
Or you can buy and fm transmitter for your player and listen to your music via a fm radio station. Cost about $20 or more... depending on the name brand.
