I'm sorry but no. the ihome is only for the 1st generation, so if you want to use it with your new ipod, you need to buy another one that supports second generation. this is a bummer, but its how they make their money.

What generation this iPod is serial number 1A009QC075J


iPods come in a variety of generations and models, including the nano, Classic and Touch. Depending on your model you may be able to record video, play games or watch television.
If you're unsure of your device's model, you can determine which iPod you have by using your serial number.
After determining your model, you can find out which features and capabilities your iPod has.

Go to Apple's official website (see Link Below) and click the Support tab.
http://www.apple.com/
Click the Online Service Assistant link, which is located in the Support Services menu on the right side of the screen.
The Service and Repair page will open.
Find your iPod's serial number.
This is engraved somewhere on the back of your iPod, either on the body of the device or on the clip.
You can also find it in your iPod's About screen by clicking Settings and selecting About (or General followed by About on an iPod Touch).
Enter your iPod's serial number and click the "Continue" button.
Your iPod model and generation will be displayed at the top of the screen.

With each new generation of the iPod Touch, you get new features and updates to the older generation.
The 2nd and 3rd generation iPod Touches are very similar in physical appearance.
The easiest way to determine what generation of iPod Touch you have is to check the model number on the back of the device.
The 2nd and 3rd generation iPod Touches were given unique model numbers to help distinguish your device generation.
Remove any protective case from the iPod Touch so you can see the back of the device.
Locate the model number at the bottom of the back of the device.
Check the model number against the following model numbers.
Third generation iPod Touches are model number "A1318." Second generation iPod Touches are model number "A1288."

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.

I bought an ihome p90 it wont play my ipod touch


Hello,
It is very possible that the ihome p90 is not compatible with the ipod touch. unfortunately for us, the different generations of ipods are not all the same and not all work on different docks. To verify that your itouch is not the problem, borrow someone elses and try to see if that will play. I'm willing to bet that its just the dock that is not compatible with that specific version of the itouch.
Good luck

"Charging not supported by this accessory"


The iPod 2nd Gen changed how it charges and all those devices that once charged your older iPod, will no longer charge this one unless you get the adapter which is at the apple store and I have seen it at walmart for about $30. that device converts the power for you so it will charge. my adapter works perfectly.

Ihome won't play ipod, even after resetting ipod I have de same problem. I got an itouch 2nd generation and docked it on a speaker that supports it. It worked fine for two or three hours, but suddenly it...


Welcome to the wonderful world of the iHome frying the Ipod.
Your iHome, has most likely fried the mainboard on your ipod.
to check plug a usb into the ipod and connect to the computer.
if it comes up disconnect the usb and try a headphones in the jack.
if it doesn;t play sound its fried and you will need a new mainboard.
if it does play through the headphone jack, your lucky and keep it off the dock.

I have fixed at least 30 ipods taken out by ihome docks and other docks.
they are terrible for the ipod. Even Apple sells the docks on their website
that shows how much they care about the product.

If this helps leave a vote on fixya

Problem with ihome and ipod nano.


yes, unfortunately the ihome iH9 is not compatible with previous models of the ipod nano.

if you want a similar device, there are many other docking stations for the ipod that are ip0 that ARE compatible with the ipod nano 2G

iH85B is another ihome dock which is compatible with all ipods after the ipod mini (including the ipod nano 2G)

Ihome won't play ipod, even after resetting ipod


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.
