Question about SDI iHome iH5 Docking Station, FM Transmitter for Apple iPod (047532889017)

Open Question

IHome H5 docking station went dark

Ive had my ihome for about 1 year. Just the other day, I noticed that the display went darker than normal. I could see the time and it charged my ipod. The unit wouldn't respond to any of the buttons. The ihome website said to reset the unit by taking the batteries out and unplug it for 1 hour. Well that didn't work. Anybody else have any good Ideas?

    My problem is that my iHome is also charging the iPod, but none of the buttons on the back two rows (radio, iPod, radio presets, eq, or sleep) will respond, nor will the front line button for display brightness work either. Now for the really strange thing....all of the alarm settings work and when tripped the alarm is simply the beep, beep setting, but the snooze line button in the front will work for the snooze option! Now that is bizarre!

SOURCE: remote won't control my 4th generation ipod nano

Hey I figured it out. When you bought the 4th generation ipod nano it came with it's own dock insert. It fits perfectly and fixes everything, including the remote issues. Now my only problem is I have a black ihome and a white insert :( Good luck!

SOURCE: ihome ih9 wont work with 3rd generation ipod nano

Look at the Box and the Manual! 3rd Generation is not supported by iH9! Clearly marked on the Manual.

It's a new ipod, right? And your docking station must of been made before the new nano toke the stores. You need to get a new docking station.

SOURCE: Radio doesn't work on ihome ih9

Just purchased a used iH9 and I can't get any sound from the radio or ipod. I'm pretty sure I'm doing everything right and I've reset the iH9 by removing the batteries and disconnecting the power. Any suggestions?

Anyone ever experience a loud and high pitched buzzing type of sound coming from the 5 holes under the docking station??? Ive had it for a long time but rarely used it, worked like a champ until that


I notice that some of my cell phone wall chargers make a high pitched ringing sound, not that loud though. I think cheaper internal electrical components are the culprit. (Opinion)

I got my iHome a little less then 2 months ago, I never had a problem with it and it worked fine. Just this morning I charged my iPod Touch with it and it worked fine, then I tried it again later and it...


If it is only two months old, put it in for repair under warranty.
The fact that two devices don't charge indicate it is probably faulty.
Before you do, first check all the obvious things.
Check the docking cradle is clear of fluff, paper or cat hair.
Check that any switches are in the on position.
Check that all cables are plugged in.
You may not have changed anything, but someone else may have.
