Annoying right? All the buttons do different things depending on whether you hold them for a long duration or short duration. To toggle between Normal Mode, Shuffle, Repeat One and Repeat All hold the + Volume button down.

if the boom box has a Aux input socket somewhere the you need a male to male wire (like headphones but has plug on both ends) or go to dollar store and get one that leads to a cassette Sorry I can't remember what they are called but the cassette has a metal strip instead of a ribbon and then plug the wire into i pod and set boombox to tape, good luck P.s ipod may have different port sizes but headphone jack should be the same
I had the same issue. Over time, the cd player quit palying at all. The unit would try to read the cd but couldn't and then skip to the next cd.
- I took fairlane's advice and put a cd in and listened for the ticking sound to indicate that the laser was trying to read the cd. I also looked inside through the top "vent" area to be sure the cd was actually spinning. It was spinning and I heard what I thought I was "ticking" sound so I guessed that the laser needed to be cleaned.
- I took off the 6 side panel screws on the right side of the entire unit and loosened the screw on the backside off the unit about halfway down from the top that also held the side panel on.
- I then removed the side panel.
- I then removed the 2 screws on the top side of the other side panel and the screw in the top center back of the top panel and was able to remove the top cover that is over the unit. The top cover is "pressure fitted" in so be careful as you try to remove it, using a little wiggle at a time, but it does comes off.
- Once you have the top off, there is a screw in the center of the plate that holds the tray for the cd's. Remove the screw and you will able to lift and spin the tray to have clear access to the laser
that needs to be cleaned. (Note the position of the numbers on the tray so you put it back the right way.)
- The laser is a little "glassy" looking thing about the size of the head of the q-tip.
- I used the q-tip with 70% isopropol alcohol and rubbed it over and around the laser as best I could. I repeated the procedure 2-3 times and the used compressed air to dry it off.
- I put everything back in place in the reverse order I took it off, based on what's in the above steps.
- Remember, the top will fit in with pressure so don't get anxious as you try to get it in the right position.
The cd's actually play again.
I hope this will help someone.
I'm not familiar with that particular model, but unless there is an input jack on the back, the note on the unit means that if you burn a cd on a computer,to play using this unit, you don't have to convert the songs to standard music format as you would with an older boombox, but you can leave them in MP3 format and fit many many songs on the CD, and the boombox will still play them.
So....You must burn the songs from your ipod to a cd, in MP3 format, and the box will play them.
