The problem is that the flat flexible cable which connects the dock to the main unit is breaking. After taking mine apart(!), I found that the point at which the cable connects to the main unit is flexed very strongly each time the dock is opened. Each time the dock opens & closes, it gets worse.

Replacement is a 260mm, 12 pin, 1mm pitch, flat flexible cable, AWM 20624 80c VW-1. I have yet to locate a supplier of this cable.

New ipod, old ihome. "device not supported" Any way around?


I'm sorry but no. the ihome is only for the 1st generation, so if you want to use it with your new ipod, you need to buy another one that supports second generation. this is a bummer, but its how they make their money.

Ihome won't play ipod, even after resetting ipod I have de same problem. I got an itouch 2nd generation and docked it on a speaker that supports it. It worked fine for two or three hours, but suddenly it...


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.

If this helps leave a vote on fixya

Problem with ihome and ipod nano.


yes, unfortunately the ihome iH9 is not compatible with previous models of the ipod nano.

if you want a similar device, there are many other docking stations for the ipod that are ip0 that ARE compatible with the ipod nano 2G

iH85B is another ihome dock which is compatible with all ipods after the ipod mini (including the ipod nano 2G)

My Computer and iTunes does not recognize my iPod


Try this: turn off your ipod, hold the home button, and plug it into itunes while still holding the home button until a picture of the itunes symbol appears with a cable under it. itunes should say "ipod found in restore mode". This will completely reset your ipod, hopefully fixing any bugs or problems in it. also, you will lose all data saved on the ipod that isn't also backed up by itunes. Music, pictures, and video can be re-synced.

Although the connections are very similar, the iHome is probably only for and iPod, and not compatible with Philips MP3 players.

The only dock I know of that is compatible is the AJ300D

Tried ipod speakers with sansa. Screen went blue and sound went bad.


Dear seren, If you are having trouble with your mp3 player, and you haven't taken it apart, all screws are intact on the backside of the sandisk e250, then you might be able to get it replaced by sandisk, but a hint: don;t ever put your sandisk into an Ipod dock, such as an Ihome. They might have the 30-pin connector similar to the sandisk's, and they might fit into your sandisk, but the Ihomes have a different voltage level than the sandisk's chargers. now, if you want to get an Ihome for your sandisk, Griffin, Macally and DOP brands have chargers, Ihomes, and dock ports made just for the sandisk. Hou do i know this, you ask. Because i have done the same exact thing, but i took mine apart to see what's wrong. It ruins the capacitors and overdrives it. but you can buy the right kind of capacitors at a nearby Radio Shack, but it very difficult to put it on. You have to get the one originally on it off, and that one's soldered ontop the motherboard. then you have to get the other one in just the right spot/ place, and then you have to solder the new capacitor onto the unit without get any solder on the gold linings. This is all i can do for you, the rest is up to you. GOOD LUCK!!! Wild2DMaxx
