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 !!

Charger


My experience from working in an electronics retailer who sells many different brands and models of iPhone and iPod docks has shown me that these docks are not robust.
It's common for the dock connector on these devices to break and stop working. It's also possible that your dock is not compatible with that iPhone.
If your iPhone used to charge on the dock but no longer works, I would not be surprised if the dock connector is now broken.
If the item is still under warranty, I would advise either contacting the manufacturer or returning it to the retailer.
You might have to switch back to the original apple charger until then.

It is normal to get incompatible devie message when you attach your iphone to dock because you don't use apple dock. I have 5 different brand portable speakers, charging docks. And all of them give same message when i attach my iphone 4 to dock. When you press "ok" on your iphone screen, it should start to play your songs. You don't need to use your iphone at airplane mode.

You may have problem with your iphone dock conncector cable pins. If audio related pins are damaged, you can not use any external iphone speakers with your iphone4. In order to test your sonic integrity tube pod; try another ipod or iphone on its dock. If it gives same result, you may need to change dock connector unit on sonic integrity tube pod due to damaged pins. If it works; iphone 4 dock connetor cable of your iphone 4 needs to be replaced.

Ipod 4th gen "charging not supported"


It does that to my iPhone; if I want to charge I have to use a separate cable and run the audio into the aux. Defeats the whole purpose of a dock if you ask me, but I guess they never anticipated what they'd have to do to charge the new iPhone batteries back when they designed the pre-G3-phone docks.

Getting error message software not compatible with IPod


This compatibility issue is caused by the same change with the Apple Dock Connecter introduced with the iPhone 3G. Inside the iPod / iPhone Dock Connecter are 30 metal pins. Previous iPods and iPhones allowed for charging either over pins reserved for the USB connection or pins reserved for the obsolete Firewire connection.
While Apple apparently announced this upcoming change to manufactures of “Made for iPod” accessories back in 2005, Apple only formerly discontinued Firewire charging support with the most recent iPods. New iPods and iPhones can only charge via the USB pin.
As such, there is no way that a software update can fix this issue in the future; this is truly a modification in iPod hardware.
