Hello Nada19,

The dock connector is the connector at the bottom of the iPod which the USB cable you use to connect the iPod to your computer plugs into. This is also the connector that is used to connect your iPod to a "dock" such as this one. An iPod dock, like this one is a device that you drop your iPod into for charging. It typically also has a connection for external speakers that can be used with the dock.

Not all models of iPod have a dock connector. And the actual layout of the dock connector varies from model to model. It sounds like you will need to use an iPod model that does have a dock connector to interface with the karaoke machine. You may also need an interface cable. Consult the documentation of your karaoke machine for more detailed info.

Best Regards,
"Go Ahead. Use Us."

It will actually work, however, you will not be able to dock the iPod® Nano into the JBL On Stage™. You can connect the audio in cable to the headphone jack of your iPod. That's the only way, hope this helps. Pls rate solution. Thanks!!

Problem with Ipod Nano 3d generation and Bose Soundock

Try other iPods - if they work with no problems it is a problem with the iPod software, connect this to iTunes to get it updated, and also try a soft reset (hold down menu+center buttons for about ten seconds) if you still get issues, contact Bose.

Gen 3 nano and bose docking station

Have you tried another iPod on it?? I suspect that if you do, that one won't work either. If it's a Bose SoundDock then they are well known for having problems with the iPod connector getting loose. Try with another iPod. If results are the same, take your SoundDock back. Bose should exchange it straight away.

Nano shows song playing but nothing happens

Make sure your headphones are working properly by testing with your computer headphone jack.

Is the headphone port on the Nano loose?

Connect the Nano to your iPod dock and see if you can head audio through the docks headphone jack.

If the headphones work, and you can get audio out of the dock headphone port, then there is a problem with your Nanos headphone jack.
