Sounds like you have a broken dock connector. Apple should give you a replacement. If you're out warranty, you can try to open it and replace dock connector. You can get the part at iPad Repair and there is a guide that shows you how to open a kindle and install parts at iPad Repair Guide.

I have a cellet car charger and when i plug it in it says that charging device is not supported what or how do I resolve this problem


Some older iPod and iPhone chargers charge over what is called "firewire" circuitry. "Firewire" charging doesn't work with the iPhone 3G, 3GS, or 4. It sounds like this is your problem, and the charger will need to be replaced in order to charge your iPhone in your car. You should be able to find replacements from resellers such as Griffin or Belkin for a small price that wlll work wonderfully with the iPhone.

I have a kenwood KDC-MP438U stereo. Ipod error.


Hi If anything the stereo was probably designed and tested using a certain version of the Iphones software, now that version 4 has been released the way the IPhone communicates may have changed.

As a result the stereo is no longer able to talk to the phone and vice versa. your probably best off contacting Kenwood direct to see if they are aware of this problem and if there is anything that can be done about it.

I am thinking of getting and Ipod touch 3G. I have JBL on stage micro Speakers. I've charged a Ipod touch 2G, but I want a 3G! Please Help!


When the OnStage speakers first came out, the charger was not compatible with 3g iPods or iPhones. Newer speakers have an upgraded charger and will charge all current iPods/iPhones (up to and including iPhone 3Gs)

Bad news is that there's no way to upgrade an old OnStage.

You can test yours by trying an iPhone 3G (if you have a friend with one, for example) to see if you have the old or the new charging circuit.

I can't play my iphone on my kenwood KDC-MP435U


Jennifer, I have the same issue. the problem is that the 2007+ generations of Kenwood receivers are not compatible with the iPhone. You will need to get a 2009+ series in order to use your iPhone with the head unit. I had the same issue with the Kenwood KDC-MP435U in my mustang. I am going to get a newer head unit that supports the iPhone. You cannot do it with the MP435U.

Iphone wont charge on Bose iDoc


There are many devices that worked with the original iphone that will not work with the 3g. Be sure that when you buy docking stations that the Iphone 3gs is included in the list of supported devices.

3gs wont charge from usb or charger


The newer iPods and iPhones aren't communicating with older docks. I'm not sure if that's your problem, but I've found a "work-around".
I've purchased an adapter that plugs into the iPhone and allows charging with previous docks etc.
You can find one here.
