Question about Sonic Impact Technologies IF22 Docking Station for Apple iPod (648027050846)

1 Answer

Attachment and volume control

We've had our sonic impact player for just over a year and noticed last week that the ipod doesn't have a tight connection to the dock anymore, which results in static and muted sound. We have to physically hold it in place in order for it to play. Also the volume does not increase to the level that it used to. Can you help?

    Same problem. No sound unless iPod is held in place, and then it cuts in and out with static. It seems like the internal connections are malfunctioning or not functioning at all. A real Pain!!!!!!! I think it may be an internal loose connection. There is no apparent simple way to disassemble to gain access to the electronics inside to see if it only requires a simple repair; like resoldering a wire.

This is not solution, but the way to open it up. Pry off the metal ring around the pulg-in place. Then insert a screwdriver between the foam like padding along the zipper and the plastic unit itself. By prying and lifting (get your fingers under the plastic eventually), you can break the GLUE that hold the unit to the cover. The glue will break without hurting the unit's boards. Getting past the system board inside is a whole other problem. I have (as probably all will have) this problem with the connection: I am almost sure it is with the weak docking connection that connects the ipod to the system board.

I have a sonic impact technologies sonic impact video 55 and it want come on and it want take a charge what wrong with it


The battery is rechargable for about 400x. If you leave it on the charger too long or never let the battery run down it will shorten its life span. Sonic Impact no longer sells the replacement battery unit through their website and I have been looking for replacements myself. the problem is this: the battery unit is integrated with the battery cover and can not be separated. So you need the actual Sonic Impact battery, and they have not responded to any emails, requests for customer support or phone calls. Good luck.

My sonic impact technologies sonic impact video 55 can not play my movie I don't not why. I hear my musie but can not see my movie on the screem. what can i do


If you have a later IPod, 6th Gen or later, Apple changed the software and Sonic Impact no longer plays your movies, but audio is fine. You can get around this by purchasing, from Apple, and adapter cable. It is $50 but allows you to charge your Ipod and play your movies on your home TV. The cable is really just a key that unlocks the TV Out setting. If you have and 5th Gen or earlier then you probably just need to go into video setting and select TV OUT : ON. I hope this takes care of your issue.

I have a Sonic Impact V55 Video player and a new 160GB Ipod. Anyway to get the video to work on it?


Absolutely, I have this myself. My 5th Gen works great, but the 160GB would not show movies, just played music. Apple has an adapter cable set that allows you to hook your Ipod to your TV. $50 buy it! You can charge and watch your stuff on your flat screen. It also unlocks your Ipod TV out setting for your Video 55. Set you IPOD video setting to TV Out: on, select your movie and play. Plug in the IPOD nip to your Ipod then set your Ipod into the Video 55. A bit of a pain but works flawlessly. If you select a different movie you have to do this all over again.

My Video 55 player will not play my videos


You need to switch the video out seeting on the iPod, simple. It is located in Video/video settings/TV Out. Change the setting to "On". Problem solved. However, if you have an iPod that is less than 1 year old, nothing will work, iPod blocked this ability to change to "On" and is set on "Off" permanently.
