Re: ipod nano

The dock connectors on most of the speaker systems available are cheap and break easily. I have experienced the same problems. if the ipod doesn't sit just right then it doesn't connect. why they seem to charge but not send music signals i'm not sure. highly unlikely that it's your ipod. either buy a good speaker dock (klipsch, bose, sonic impact... check amazon or e-bay for good deals) or use the headphone jack to connect to the speaker dock you have, and use the wall charger to supply power/charge your ipod.

    No sound from my Pure-Fi Express plus into my 4th gen Nan Ipod

    Hi, while your pure express plus you just purchased is not playing out any sound is because, the speaker that enable you to play the sound when you play music through the ipod is faulty and it needs to be replaced with another one for it to function properly again.

    After changing the speaker that is faulty with a new speaker, you can now start enjoying the music again through the internal speaker.

    Take care.

    Itouch charging

    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 ?!

    My iPod Nano 2GB doesn't work at all.

    have tried holding the center button down for at least 20 seconds to do a hard reboot??
    I had to do this after my DLO Deluxe iPod dock locked up my new 80G iPod.

    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!

    1.Turn on HOLD then switch it off
    2. Press and hold the "Play/Pause" Button and the Center button at the same time until it resets the iPod.

    This should reset your iPod and fix your hung (frozen) iPod!!!
