    I got a iHome and my iPod touch won't play either. When I first got it my iPod played but then i disconected it and when I reconnected it the iPod will only charge, not play music. What is wrong?

    my ipod doesn't play through the docking station port but it does play when i hook it up to the ihome using the short cable provided. you plug one end of the cable into the ipod headphone port and the other end into the back of the ihome "line out" port. it's not as convenient as using the docking station port so if anyone knows of a fix please let me know.

    i have the exact same problem with mine. I still have my old ipod nano, so after i noticed that the ihome wouldn't play my new itouch i put the nano in and it played so i'm starting to think that it's not the ihome but the ipod touch.

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.

Try re-setting it.  You press the top left button for until a red bar comes on across the screen...slide it to turn it off and then try plugging it back into your stereo...it fixed mine.

From what im told by ihome tech support your ipod and ipod like devices wont play most likely cause the dock is broken and you need to go out and by a new one or you could send it in and have them do it what ever floats your boat

I had the same problem -- however, restarting the iPod didn't fix the issue. Instead, I had to unplug my iHome, remove the batteries and remove the backup watch battery to completely turn off the iHome. When I put them back in the iHome worked with my iPod again, good as new. Hopefully this helps someone.

    I just bought one and mine wont work either!!! UGG!!! If this is a common problem like it seems that it is....why haven't they replaced these ridiculous pieces of junk????

I took the whole ihome apart and looked at all the complicated wiring.  After trying to secure all the wires it still wont work.  I think you and I should return the ihome and buy a new ipod stereo

SOURCE: My ihome won't work.

Make sure you have power to the unit. Do you see indicator lights that show the unit is working. Speaker switch on?

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!??

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

Look at the Box and the Manual! 3rd Generation is not supported by iH9! Clearly marked on the Manual.
