SOURCE: My ihome ip9 doesn't recognize my settings for alarm and results to beeping.

I have seen other reviews mention this problem. The manufacturer has said that by design, the iHome will revert to buzzer if it doesn't think the music is load enough. So, louder playlists, and turning up the iPod/iPhone volume can convince the system that there is music being played.

How do i set the alarm on my ihome alarm dock?


Once the time is correct, users can move on to setting the alarm itself. Many iHome systems come with dual alarms allowing couples to set different times for each person or individuals to designate a weekday and weekend alarm. Each alarm has its own time, wake-to source, and frequency. The process of setting the alarm is the same for both options, the only difference is what button, either 1 or 2, users depress when setting it.

Once ready to set an alarm, users need to push and hold the button down, waiting for the alarm time to appear on the clock's display. From there, the up and down arrows or plus and minus buttons adjust the time backwards or forwards accordingly. Once that is complete, users select the frequency of the alarm by pressing the alarm button again and then opting for 7, 5, or 2, which correlates with all week, weekdays, and weekends respectively.

The final part to set is the wake source of the alarm. Users press alarm buttons one more time, and then use the same directional buttons to choose from iPhone and iPad on some models, radio, buzzer, or playlist. If users choose playlist, they must also setup a playlist within their Apple device titled iHome.

Because frequency is part of the alarm setting process, there is no need to turn on the iHome alarm manually as one would do with a normal alarm clock. However, users can check to see if the alarm is active by looking at the screen of the clock for the earliest alarm time, displayed on its lower part.
In the mornings, when the alarm sounds, users have two options: Snooze and disarm. The disarm process turns off the alarm until the next day in its frequency chain. Users disarm the alarm by pressing the power button. On the other hand, users must manually program the snooze button. Users do this by pressing and holding the snooze button and then toggling to the desired snooze time, generally between one and 29 minutes. Once this is set, users simply press the snooze button in the mornings to delay the replay of the alarm for that amount of time.

Ihome--ih8,


I got the iH8 as a present everything works fine except for the ipod alarm. the unit will play my music when i press the play ipod button, and recognizes its plugged in, but when i set the ipod alarm, without taking out the ipod or anything, it doesnt go off with my music, it just buzzes. Idont think it is the ipod because i have updated the software on the ipod and have even tried 3 different ipods with the iH8. i have had the iH8 for about 2 weeks and set it nearly every day, and out of all those times it has gone off with my music only 3 times. How do i get it to work every time!??

No sound at all after a few years of working fine...


the problem you are facing in the iPod is same as my one. it generally happens due to rough usage of iPod and if you accidentally hear songs while sleeping and if you pull any of the wires and put your weight on your ipod, these things happen.
so the solution is just get it to a service provider near you. as he can assist you with best solution.

Radio doesn't work on ihome ih9


Just purchased a used iH9 and I can't get any sound from the radio or ipod. I'm pretty sure I'm doing everything right and I've reset the iH9 by removing the batteries and disconnecting the power. Any suggestions?

Changing between the buzz and cd setting for alarm clock


From the manual (miraculously, I still have it)...

To switch the alarm sound between buzzer, church bells, radio or CD, press MODE one time, and then press REPORT.

If CD is selected, press TUNING up (>>+) or down (-<<) to select desired wake-up track.

When alarm sounds, press ALM ON/OFF to silence alarm and reset it for the next day.

SNOOZE-BOOST

To postpone the alarm once it sounds, press SNOOZE/LIGHT. Each press of this button will add 10 minutes to the postponement time. (Pressing three times will give you a 30-minute delay).
