Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer


I gave my son one of these ipod docks for xmas but we can't find any instructions for it they were not in the box and PC World said that we would have to get them from Hitachi themselves, however they say that it isn't a european product and that they cant help - where can I get user instruction manual for this alarm clock - ipod dock? Any ideas?

    The clock on the HIT KC91 is running slow - very slow - it slows up by around 2 hours per day!

    The trouble shooting section of the manual tells me that 'the clock/tuner backup battery is low' - it then goes on to say - open the unit and replace with a new backup battery.

    This is not what I want to hear because earlier in the manual it says clearly - Never open the casing, there are no servicable parts!

    Clearly the designers decided to put the battery inside (stupid thing to do!) but then forgot about allowing access to change it out (even more stupid!) can Hitachi be this stupid?

    With no more instructions in the manual I decided to start opening it up.

    (I never did manage to find the battery and eventually gave up, but, for your information, here's what I did)

    -Unplug unit from mains.

    -Remove 2 long rubber feet on the bottom then remove the 4 screws underneath, then, with a blunt knife gently prise the bottom panel off - its stuck on with 4 sticky pads - you can feel them gently give way as you prise off the bottom panel. With the panel off, you find you have not got very far as there is another panel in place!

    -You can then loosen the top panel (I never removed it, only loosened it) by removing the 2 black silicon rubber bungs - use snipe nose pliers to pull them out - then remove the 2 screws underneath. Prising up the top panel a little then allows you to remove the back panel.

    -Going back to the bottom panel, remove the three screws that are now visible, you can prise off the back panel.

    Now, this is as far as I went, because I could still not see the battery and I was aware that removing yet more panels could seriously knacker the unit - ie: I bottled out.

    Good luck

    I've decided to live with out the clock.

Bose repairs

It may be expensive to have someone replace the connector. One option is to squirt some silicone around the base, being careful to still allow contact to be made to the iPod dock connector. You could get a dock extension cable (see link below). It may fit better and will reduce the strain on the Bose connector. If it's still loose, you could glue the extender cable in.

Alternatively, you could use a 3.5 mm audio cable to connect the iPod headphone jack to the Aux-in jack on the back of the Bose. Just living with it may be prudent.

The part that the ipod fits into has broken how do

After speaking with a Hitachi consultant friend they said the individual dock is not sold seperately from the whole unit currently, at one point it was available but not now. She suggested a few things to try. 1. Look at online parts stores for electronics.. it may be a long time GOOGLING but she said some older suppliers may still have stock. She said the part number on the dock itself is what you need to look for not the actual AXM system number. 2. You can get a 3.5mm headset jack to RCA output cables (the red and white male ends) that would be able to plug into the input of the unit and you would plug the headset jack in the Ipod like headphones. 3. Look on ebay or other sales sites for used systems like yours that are not working or broken. You can get the extra part from them and discard the non functioning part.. or contact the seller to see about only being sent the ipod dock.

Harman Kardon Go + Play Portable Speaker Keeps Shutting Off

I just had this exact problem. I'm using an ipod mini. I solved it by docking the ipod firmly at the angle
the dock is at and have the ipod at an angle, not flat. I put the plastic and rubber adapter for the mini as instructed and also placed the rubber adapter for the nano upside down to keep
the ipod propped at an angle. (Also can use something similar to keep ipod propped up at an angle)
Took a while when I first used to figure out how the dock worked. The dock is a little weird how it is hinged to go from an angle to flat. Nothing in the instructions about this. By putting the ipod flat it would still have a connection to charge and play but the power shuts off every 10 minutes. I spent a whole night having it shut off every 10 minutes. This drives me crazy when systems have features like that which always seems to cause more problems (just my humble opinion)
By having the ipod at an angle I'm currently just now having it run an hour and 20 minutes and counting with no shut offs,(fingers crossed) but so far so good.
Saw on the internet that if the ipod is not connected firmly the system has an auto shut down. I think the ipod's weight propped at an angle keeps the connection firm. Also some said they want to see the ipod display, there you go!!!! This seems to be working so far for me, may be worth a try...I was about to return mine but I love the sound so I'm keeping mine now!!!! Works fine. Happy camper again.
Please reply if this works for anyone it worked for me.
