Question about Audio Players & Recorders

We just bought a Phillips speaker for our Ipod. How do you attach the docking insert to the speaker dock? It does not automatically fit in that hole although I can see in the picture it is flush with the top surface.

All of the Philips iPod accessories were made only for specific iPods - double-check your spec sheet (or the box) to find out which iPod's it is compatible with. Understand that the date of manufacture of the Philips speakers makes a huge difference - if the speakers are 2006 speakers, then Philips did not know about the difference between iPod Nano 2nd gen and 3rd gen, because that issue just didn't exist when the speakers were made. The rule of thumb is: if the Philips was made in 2006, and the iPod was made in 2007 or 2008, then those speakers are not going to work with your iPod.

You might want to double-check with them, however, because there was one model of speakers that was supposed to come with adapters for the various IPods, and every once in a while a speaker set come without those adapters in the box - check the accessories section of the specs to see if it was supposed to come with adapters - they are available from Philips.

Also, the Target/Wal-Mart/etc employees don't have a clue about compatibility issues - they just aren't trained in those details.

moz-screenshot-12.pngmoz-screenshot-13.pngmoz-screenshot-14.pngmoz-screenshot-15.png honestytessy.jpgHow to Connect an iPod to a Speaker Bar

A speaker bar is a (usually portable) speaker system that includes a dock for an iPod. The unit is usually bar-shaped, with either a rectangular or cylindrical cross-section. Connecting an iPod to a speaker bar is usually as simple as plugging it in. Many speaker bars will also charge the iPod while it is connected. However some do not have an iPod dock, in which case the iPod must be connected by a 3.5mm audio cable.


Instructions

Things You'll Need:

* 3.5mm cable (for some speaker bars)


Turn the iPod on. Look to see if the speaker bar has a dock for the iPod. The dock will fit an iPod perfectly and will generally be located in the center of the speaker bar. There will be a connector that resembles the connector on the docking cable that came with the iPod. Place the iPod on the docking station and turn on the speaker bar. Such is the case with the "2.1 Channel Bar Speaker with Dock for iPod" or the "Yamaha YAS-71BL Front Surround Speaker System"


iPod headphones use a 3.5mm audio cable.

Connect the iPod via the 3.5mm cable. If the speaker bar does not have a docking station it will have a 3.5mm cable connector with a jack like the headphone jack on iPod ear pods. Plug the 3.5mm cable in the iPod headphone jack. Plug the other end in the iPod. Turn on the speaker bar. The procedure is straight forward and Apple specifically designed the headphone jack with third party stereos in mind.


Select a song on the iPod and play it. The speaker bar will play the music from the iPod.

Hope that helped..

have a nice day.

"...
Important Note: iPods released since Sept 2008 (e.g. Touch 2nd Gen, 4th Gen iPod Nano and iPod Classic 120 Gigabyte, iPhone 3g and onwards) have an updated dock connector that means older revisions of speaker dock may not be able to charge these newer models of iPod/iPhone. Older docks should play music from these newer models with no problem.
The problem with charging is due to Apple removing support for 12v (firewire) charging on these new models of iPod/iPhone. Only 5v (USB) charging is supported on these new models.

Ipod dock plugged it, switch to DMPORT no sound from speakers


I had the same problem. I tried everything and finally following two fixed the problem:

Dock insert has to be put before inserting Ipod in the dock. Dock insert usually comes with iPod when you buy it....After inserting the doc I was able to hear the sound but it was very faint. Then I updated the ipod's firmware. My Ipod classic was two years old. I updated the firmware by connecting it to the PC and opening itunes. Clicked on 'ipod' link and clicked to update button.

After the update, this ipod started working with my home theater system's DMPort.

HTH.

First of all, did you fully charge the battery using the A/C adapter before initial use? If your ipod does not fit with any of the attachments correctly, try just placing it on the dock without the attachment & it should connect fine just be sure it's connecting to the dock properly. I have the ipod nano 2nd generation & the attachments don't work, but it fits on the dock well without the attachments & works great!

There is some docking stations or players for the generic MP3 players but most don't even need them. A lot of them do have speakers attached but you can always get generic stations such as the one that IPOD offers or if you want to save some cash, just get some speakers that will attach to the player. There is a lot of products out there so shop around and even check out your major retailers such as Wal Mart
