Sony dock not working after iOS 6 update? Just says not an apple compatible product?? Any idea of an update or a fix on the way?

My wife had this problem with iPhone 4S after updating to ios6 on a Sony xdr-ds12ip docking station. Sound would play on iPhone off the docking station, but once it was docked no sound would come through the docking station speakers (docking station radio works fine, as did the iPhone before the iOS update). Fixed it by powering down both the iPhone and the docking station at the mains, gave it 2-3 minutes and then powered on the docking station and then the phone. Placed the iPhone in the docking station and voila the sound comes out of the speakers now.

moz-screenshot-12.pngmoz-screenshot-13.pngmoz-screenshot-14.pngmoz-screenshot-15.png honestytessy.jpgHow to Connect an iPod to a Speaker Bar

A speaker bar is a (usually portable) speaker system that includes a dock for an iPod. The unit is usually bar-shaped, with either a rectangular or cylindrical cross-section. Connecting an iPod to a speaker bar is usually as simple as plugging it in. Many speaker bars will also charge the iPod while it is connected. However some do not have an iPod dock, in which case the iPod must be connected by a 3.5mm audio cable.


Things You'll Need:

* 3.5mm cable (for some speaker bars)

Turn the iPod on. Look to see if the speaker bar has a dock for the iPod. The dock will fit an iPod perfectly and will generally be located in the center of the speaker bar. There will be a connector that resembles the connector on the docking cable that came with the iPod. Place the iPod on the docking station and turn on the speaker bar. Such is the case with the "2.1 Channel Bar Speaker with Dock for iPod" or the "Yamaha YAS-71BL Front Surround Speaker System"

iPod headphones use a 3.5mm audio cable.


Connect the iPod via the 3.5mm cable. If the speaker bar does not have a docking station it will have a 3.5mm cable connector with a jack like the headphone jack on iPod ear pods. Plug the 3.5mm cable in the iPod headphone jack. Plug the other end in the iPod. Turn on the speaker bar. The procedure is straight forward and Apple specifically designed the headphone jack with third party stereos in mind.

Select a song on the iPod and play it. The speaker bar will play the music from the iPod.

Hope that helped..

have a nice day.

I have a red colored player like this one, we bought a stereo with a docking station, it will not play is this the right generation?

It depends on the docking station and how you have it connected to the Sansa. If the station was intended for an Apple iPod and you're trying to use the connector on the bottom of the Sansa, that most definitely will NOT work; the Sansa is not electronically compatible with an iPod.

My sansa e280 will not play on the docking station or computer.

Two problems:
1) Your Sansa (and just about any other mp3 player) will not play while it is connected to the computer - it is only supposed to play once it is disconnected from the computer
2) Your docking station might be for brand-name iPod's only - using an incompatible docking station is one possible way to ruin your player

Get a simpler external speaker system with an audio jack that runs from the headphone jack of Sansa to the input jack of the docking station.

IB7 IBCD3817DT Will not play my 30 gb ipod. I sent this product back 3 times for the same problem. Doesn't this player charge up an Ipod also. I get nothing. HELP

The docking station has a sliding connector seat for the ipod to sit in and you have to align it up just right for it to connect to the ipod. I didn't do it, my fiance did.
