I have 3 roomgrooves and on 2 of them the rubberband that connects the dock to the spindles that opens it ripped. If you take the speaker cover off you can manually turn the spindle to open and close the dock. I am still looking for a replacement and the easiest way to insert new rubberbands.

Check the pins on the inside of the Ipod and the dock. It could be making contact with the power pins but not the send receive pins. Small pin will help you bend these out gently to make contact again.
Hold down the middle button (home button), the power button, and the volume DOWN button (make SURE that it's not the up one. It won't do anything, but it won't fix your iPod. Only the Down button will.).
Hold all of these down until the Apple sign shows up. Once the Apple sign shows up, it SHOULD work. I hope this helps!
I had this problem too. You're going to have to restore it with iTunes.
Plug your iPod into your computer and sync it with iTunes.
Go to the "Summary" tab and choose restore.
Let iTunes do its thing and try it on you dock again.
If that doesn't work then I would suggest taking it on and off of the docking station until it works. I know this sounds really primitive but this is what I ended up doing and now it works fine.
One last thing, if you recently upgraded your iPod's firmware then that might be what is messing you up. Sometimes docks aren't compatible with the newer firmware Apple puts out so you might have to buy a new dock unfortunately. But if your iPod was jailbroken on a past firmware you can use this video to downgrade it to when it worked with your dock.
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.
i have somewhat of a similar problem with my ipod Touch and my JBL docking station alarm clock thingy. It may just be that the ipod is not compatible on some of the levels that the Igroove is. With my docking station, it wont charge my ipod touch itll only play music
I bought an Ipod shuffle 2nd generation yesterday, it charged all night and orange light was still blinking. Tried listening to songs and sometimes it would play but most times wouldn't. Took it back for exchange and same problem. Then I realized the problem is not with the USB plug or computer reoconizing ipod but in the docking itself. I applied pressure on the top side of docked Ipod and bottom of docking station and the computer recognized the Ipod. Release pressure and lose connection. The problem is that the docking station and earbuds do not connect with ipod and the fixes provided by apple doesn't address or fix this problem.
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.
