Question about JBL (JBLRADIALWHT) Speaker System, Docking Station Adapter for Apple iPod

Open Question

Can I get a replacement JBL Radial Micro ipod dock connector?

I Just picked up a JBl Radial Micro at the Salvation Army for $5!  It works fine - except the actual ipod dock connector is missing.  So that means I can run my ipod through the stereo 1/8" input connector on the back, but I can't charge the ipod or listen to it while seated in the proper cradle...
I have checked out quite a few websites and know that you can order a multitude of different dock connectors online - I just need to know which one I can solder to the now open slot on my Radial Micro where the old one was. I assume somebody maybe was handling it a bit roughly while putting their ipod in and out of the cradle when the connector broke off. I know I'll have to open the unit to access the PC board inside  
Any ideas?
Thanks!

SOURCE: how to open the jbl radial micro speaker set?

Bit late! Just remove the four rubber feet underneath (self adhesive). Take out the four philips screws. It's a bit of a mess inside - you'll have to remove the connectors and some screws to get to the i-pod connector. You dont need to remove the button pcbs just the main board. The i-pod connector pcb is on the end of the grey ribbon cable connected to the main board (the button end of the unit).

Turn on the JBL with the ipod in place, turn off at the mains plug, turn back on, turn on your JBL and the remote should work.

SOURCE: No picture on television when connecting s-video

Hi, I have this problem and when I spoke to JBL techical support they told me that Apple have changed their software on the New Nano and the ipod touch and of course the iphone and regrettably the radial does not support S video for these products. I'm told it will work with first generation ipod classics. PS: i had to carefully cut off some of the plastic plug to make sure the connection goes all the way into the back of the radial

If you peel back the rubber cushioning on the base of the dock you will see several screws to access the main housing of the unit.
Take it from there.

Jbl radial micro - how to open up?


I have a two JBL radial and stage micro, both with the same loose connection problem after two years. The stage micro was simpler to open and it was necessary just to re-soldering the connector. Now, it is working great. Regarding the Radial, this is another history… as explained in this forum, everything is glued. I was unable to access the circuit board following the explanation posted by other persons. In fact, the plastic cover with the JBL printed logo is glued and also has two screws. Unfortunately, you will need a good time, some hours in fact, to open the Radial. The best way is remove the back mesh screen. You will need a hair dryer to soft the glue and using a small screwdriver you will need to pull out carefully all the screen. From there, you will be able to access the screws. It will be necessary to unscrew and unglue different parts if you don’t want to scratch the Radial body.

Jbl radial dock connector broken


I have the same problem, but I got round it instantly by plugging my ipod into the speaker via the headphone port on the ipod and into the audio port on the speaker. The speaker came with a spare lead as you can plug any music player into it this way. The sound quality seems exactly the same and I dont have to throw away the speakers, hooray! If you have lost the lead you need a 3.5 mm male to male headphone lead, just pence in any electrical shop or amazon!

My jbl radial, when using a 120 gig ipod, will skip songs.


Not a solution but mine sometimes causes my ipod to skip mid-song to the next song or podcast as well. JBL customer service is usually good and I've been meaning to check with them since I finally figured out it's the radial and not my ipod.

Ipod adapter clear


Sorry, it 'WILL NOT' charge a 4G Nano on this Dock no matter which adapter you use!!

Clear Adapters have small numbers on them which relate to different iPods - A reference sheet relating to these numbers is enclosed with the Adapter Pack!

I-pod connector came off


this connector is available complete with pcb from jbl service center.But radial is very difficult to open.You need to open the mesh with a hair dryer,because it is heavely glued with hot glue on the borders.you will find screws inside.And also from the bottom & sides you have to remove this decorative strip.
it is very time consuming & headache.
i have myself replaced five of this docking sockets,it will take minimum of two to three hours to do this

Compatability with 4th gen nano


I have had exactly the same problem having bought a JBL Radial Micro for my partner for Xmas for use with the Ipod Nano, i contacted JBL via their website and was advised to contact Harmen on 01707278100. I was advised that the new ipod nano (chromatic) would not charge on the JBL radial micro. They stated that this was due to Apple changing the charging pin in the new nano. I have since bought a JBL Stage III. I contacted Harmen before buying this and was advised that the Stage II would not work. Hope that this is of use.
