<p>The iHome clock radio functions as an iPod with speakers and
works with all iPods, as long as you use the right places. The insert keeps
your iPod fits into the machine. Any model of iPod has made a special insert,
and they are not interchangeable. When a new iPod, you must use the entry age
of your iHome to take the right path for your new iPod to be found. <br />
<p>1. Agitation insert firmly with your fingers to try to
release it. <br />
<p>2. Lift the insert into place and secure it with the other
inserts. <br />
<p>3. Size of all posts and find out which one goes best with
your new iPod. Put it on your iHome instead of the old. <br />
Well, got to local hardware store, pick up 12/3 soow/soo wire, new plug, LOTS of electrical tape (lol one rollwould work 3M type 88 is best), 3 12ga wire nuts. splice in the wire( white-white, black-black, green-green) near the motor. Cover the spliced area with enough tape to well cover the splice area; more than just one layer of tape (do not be afraid to pull on tape; it holds better when tape is pulled and stretched). Connect the plug; white to silver, black to gold/brass, green to grounding lug/green. place a slight loop (4-6" dia) with spiced area opposite of where cable passes its self. either tape and/or zip-tie so no strain is placed on the splice. At this point compressor should be working.
Your iHome may be an older model with an the wrong charge type. Different iPhone / iPod generations use different charge voltage with iPhone requiring a higher voltage than your iHome gives. My suggestion would be to get an adapter that should fix the problem.
When I first got my ipod touch and my ihome I had no problems and then all of a sudden everything worked except for the ihome wouldn't play music. It charged properly and the alarm and clock worked fine just the music wouldn't play. So I assumed it was the ihome and took it back and exchanged it only to get home and have the exact same problem. So I reset my Ipod and it worked. To do it you have to hold the sleep button until the red slider appears. Slide your finger across it to turn off. Press and hold the sleep button until the apple comes on. Next I sync'ed and looke dfor an update. After all this I docked it and it worked.
