for this kind of unit HTS8100 that comes with htd7001 it can only play some ipod. for instance if you want to play music you can use ipod nano but if you want to play video you need to use ipod 4th and 5th generation. because there's compatible issue with this unit because ipod was released after this unit (hts8100) was released

If your capable of replacing components yourself - Change capacitor C19 (33uF 63v) its on the board next to the display.

This cap goes leaky/dry after time, as there is a lot of ripple on it. This is what causes the display to go dim or blank. changing this cap brings the display back on most cases. Also maybe change the other capacitors near it while you are there..

Really works!

I have a Hype power stick 2200Mph and the cord won't fit in my iPhone 5c do I have to use another cord I thought it worked with my iPhone because that's the cord that came with stick

Remember that Apple changed the cable that them devices uses. Since iPhone 5, the apple devices uses the lightning cord. As you say, the hype power stick 2200Mph cord is the old cable of 30-pin. You'll need an adapter or maybe another cord.

Here you have an adapter certified by apple:
Lightning to 30 pin Adapter
Here you have an lightning cable that will work for you:
Lightning to USB Cable 1

Change dock connector

Though I'm not sure, I think what you are asking is how to use an iPhone 5s on an older iPhone docking station. If so, my recommendation is to buy and a 30 pin to 8 pin adapter. Here is an example:₪cy=USD&gclid=CJbTm_u188MCFUZhfgodt2wA9Q

Apple sells one as well called a Lightning to 30-pin Adapter for about $30. Here is that link:

It all depends on the form factor of your dock and whether the added size of the adapter will still allow your phone to sit on the dock. There may be some smaller, slimmer ones. If the phone doesn't fit on the dock with the adapter in place, you could also buy a iPhone 5s extension cable and just cable your phone to the dock and adapter.

I own an iPod (30 pin port) and am trying to find a 30pin to lightning adaptor to be able to connect it to a new ihome sound system with a lightning port. Any suggestions?

I buy all of my cell accessories/adapters like this on ebay. They're usually very cheap and ship directly from China. I've gotten some that don't work, but they usually send a replacement.

They're almost always under $5 including shipping.

I have a new docking stationbut am unable to connect it to my old apple ipod canyou help please

Probably your new docking station is equipped with the new Lightning connector used by iPhones and iPads instead of the 30-pin connector used by old and newer iPods. Search on Internet to see if you can find a Lightning-to-30-pin adapter. Do not get a 30-pin-to-Lightning adapter; you will waste your money.The latter adapter is more readily available, but is used to connect an iPhone or iPad to and OLDER docking station equipped with a 30-pin connector.

Is there an adapter/cord (30 Pin to Lightning, or 30 Pin to Bluetooth) actually KNOWN to work with the Altec Lansing iMT800, so we can all charge and control the newer Lightning connector style iPhone

I think your only option is to get one sold in Apple stores. I have a small 30-pin-to-Lightning adapter (not a cable) and it does not work with either my iPad mini or my wife's iPhone 5. I also have a non-Apple Lightning charging cable (as a backup, just in case...). Same deal.

New iphone 5 does not fit on the base

They do make an adapter that you can purchase from the Apple store. This was a common issue when Apple switched from the 30 pin connectors to the new lightning ports which are much smaller.

Hope that helps!

Iphone 5 does not charge, nor does music come through the speakers when connected to the Jensen 205i docking music system via 8 to 30 pin adapter.

Hello Karan,

Thanks for choosing a Fixya.

As far as i know & from experiance of using Apple Product since many years, some times some accessories does not supports & works very well with iPhone. If your iPhone is working fine with other accessories that mean original accessories came from Apple then there is nothing wrong with iPhone, so please try it with another system or try with another 30 pin Apple original dock adapter & i hope it will work like charm.

Thanks & Regards,
Chandrashekhar !!

IPhone 5 charger

Yes! You can use your old chargers with the iPhone 5 however you will need to buy the adapter for them so that they will be compatible with the new "lightning" sync connection. You can read about it here:
