Question about Apple iPod nano 3rd Generation

Ipod nano won't connect to iTrip car system

Ipod nano won't play on iTrip car system. Returned accessory thinking it was defunct but new one does the same thing. All our other ipods of the same model work fine with car system. When I try to connect this particular ipod it won't play and freezes up. It will allow me to reset manually once I disconnect from car accessory. Ipod does, however, connect with no problems to my computer for syncing and charging. Thanks in advance.

You might need to check which version or generation your iPod Nano is because older versions use a different voltage in power then the newer generations. Older generations will blow the iTrips fuse or may defunct the nano.

Updated my ipod software and now it wont play on my home theatre system


This is always tricky with 1st generation iPod touches. After a while they can't handle the new software anymore and some functions won't work anymore. Maybe try to downgrade the software. Otherwise you should probably get a new iPod.

My ipod wont play through the docking system, how do i solve this? it is a sony ICF-CS10iP. i have tried unpluging it. it used to work when i had this problem before. but it hasnt worked for a couple days...


Please check the iPod connector on the Sony. If you can wiggle it, it is probably a bad connection. These model Sony radios have the connector directly soldered on a PCB and it tends to get loose after a while due to connecting/disconnecting the iPod. If it is loose, the connector needs to be re-soldered back into place.

I have had the following circumstances when there was a bad connection:
- iPod will not be charged
- iPod can not play music through the Sony
- iPod will play music through the Sony, but an iPhone won't

I have an itrip (2009) for my iphone, but as soon as I plug the dock connector, I got a message that says that such app is not recognized for my iphone


Hello Hinost,

The Griffin iTrip is a device that is compatible with Apple's iPod and its main function is to allow a user to listen to their iPod in their car. The device sends data through radio signals and it assigns a radio station you want to tune.

Update your iPhone if your Griffin iTrip is not working. This has been known to fix fourth generation iPhones. Plug your iPhone into your computer and launch iTunes. Under the "Devices" tab, click the "Update" button to update your iPhone firmware. Try using the Griffin iTrip again.Perform a soft reset on your Griffin iTrip if it is not powering on. Sometimes the iPhone has problems communicating with third-party devices and can lock up or freeze the third-party device. To perform a soft reset, plug the iTrip into your iPhone and make sure the iPhone is powered on. Hold down the "Menu" and "Select" buttons on your iPhone until the Apple logo appears. Try using your iTrip again after this reset.Make sure that the iTrip is completely flush with your iPhone when it is connected to the iPhone.If your iTrip is set to a station that is close to a major broadcasting station, you may be getting interference. To change the station frequency, navigate to the iTrip playlist on your iPhone.

Why is my itrip screen blank?


The battery is probably too flat to be recharged via normal methods, you need to get a new battery, or take the old one out and charge it with a higher power charger.

Itrip screen flashes and wont start


From the Griffin website: "This means that the iPod you're using isn't compatible with the new iTrip. The new iTrip with App Support requires data connections that aren't available in iPod models made before September of 2007. The good news is, there are plenty of iTrip models that are compatible with your iPod. For a complete list of Griffin products that are compatible with your iPod, go to our Products page and click on the picture of your iPod"

My Jamo i300 will not charge my new ipod nano (4th Gen).


not likely the new 4 gen Ipod has different pin set within its dock connector system for the video output which has made many 3rd party accessories no longer able to charge the ipod but it will still play music
