Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone

Home theater compatibility

I recently bought a Panasonic home theater system with an iPod dock. It turns my iPhone on when I insert it in the dock, then I get a message that says it's not compatible with this device. I can either switch to airplane mode or am forced to turn the thing off.

Any insights here on making it work, or is it hopeless?

Re: Home theater compatibility

You should be able to select "no" when it asks Do you wish to use airplane mode and the phone should still work.

Not all of the features of the home theater system will probably work but you won't know for sure until you try it

How To Connect Your iPhone, iPad, or iPod To The TV

The following devices have support for TV out:
  • iPhone
  • iPad
  • iPod touch
  • iPod nano (3rd generation and later)
  • iPod classic, iPod (5th generation), and iPod photo
Note: Other iPod models may support viewing of photos or slideshows on the iPod display but do not support TV out.
The following docks support TV out when used with an iPod model or iPhone that supports TV out:
  • Apple Universal Dock (requires either the Apple Composite AV Cable or the Apple Component AV Cable-will not work with the iPod AV Cable). Search the store for part number MB125G.
  • iPod Universal Dock or iPod with color display dock (iPod photo dock)
Important: The iPhone dock does not support TV out.
iPod models that support TV out can support viewing on a television in several ways. Use the tables below to see which cables and docks can be used with each iPod model. Check the documentation that came with the cable or iPod for information on how to connect and enable TV out.
Note: If you choose to use a third-party cable, make sure it has the "Works with iPhone" or "Made for iPod" label. Learn more about iPod and iPhone accessories.

All you need to get TV out is a compatible iPhone, iPad, or iPod and the correct cable. If your device works with the component and composite cables, then the choice depends on the TV(s) you will be connecting to.

  • Apple Composite AV Cable (part number MB129LL) will connect any iPhone, iPad, or iPod to your TV using RCA Cables.
  • Apple Component AV Cable (part number MB128LL) will connect any iPhone, iPad, or iPod (except iPod with color display (iPod photo), and iPod (5th generation)) to your TV using Component Cables.

A dock can be a welcome addition if you're going to keep your cables connected to the TV. The Apple Universal Dock includes an Apple Remote so you can pause and adjust the volume from a distance. The docks and cables are sold separately.

Hi there I have bought a panasonic Sc-sp100 docking station for my iPhone, I bought this expensive one as I thought I was paying for the quality. The problem is when I dock my iPhone 4 a message pops up...

I think some docking stations do not work with Iphone3 + as the hardware has been changed by Apple. Thye warned all manufacturers about this but many ignored it! There is not solution other than to buy a station that specifically says that it will play Iphone3 +.

Im trying to play my iphone music on my home theatre system with ipod dock and my phone just says accessory connected. how do i make it play?

First, if iPod (from your iPhone) doesn't play automatically, you should open it and play the song you wanna hear.

After that, make sure you selected the "Dock" from your home theatre system to make sure that it'll be producing the sound coming from your dock and not from your TV or blu-ray/DVD player or gaming consoles.

And finally, make sure the volume is loud enough for you to hear your songs.

How do I charge my new iphone 16GB?

Your new iPhone comes with a USB cable and a wall charger in the box. If you don't have a computer, you can plug the wall charger to any socket in your house and connect your iPhone to the wall charger using the USB cable. However, if you have a computer, you can plug the USB cable to any USB slot from your computer and connect it to your iPhone.

You can also charge your device from any iPhone dock, or even those docks attached to your home theater system.

I cant get this i phone to work that i bought on ebay

There was a similar problem with my ipod nano.. The ipod/iphone has got the apple logo built in but if it cant fint the firmware to run then is shuts itself down. to fix and restore.. 1. Put the iPhone in DFU mode by holding the home and power buttons for 10 secs the hold the home for 10 secs.
2. Connect to itunes
3. itunes should say " iTunes has found a iPhone in recovery mode. You need to restore the iPhone before it can be used with iTunes"
4. Restore - this should take an hour or so..
5. Done.
This works with my ipod touch but i havnt got a iPohne and the firmware is the same.
