    there is another very similar post on FixYa w/no answer either.

    I bought an On Time for $17 with a broken dock connector.  I emailed to see if I can order the part.  I'll update if I hear anything.

    ******* piece of ****. I have the same problem 2 months after warranty. No one fixes them, throw it away I was told by many repair shops. Better yet do not buy a JBL product again.

I pod is disabled

1. Manual reset by Home key + Down Volume key, this can fix many general iPod problems.
2. You may try this iTunes alternative, I always use it to upload music and video to my iPod once my iTunes can't recognize my iPod, my friends recommend it to me, it's safe and works pretty well, you can also use it to copy music and video from ipod to computer for backup, it's useful when you lost your iTunes library.
3. Update your iTunes to the latest version. Plug in your iPod. If iTunes can't recognize it, then in iTunes in the top left corner click help> run diagnostics. On the box that comes up, check the last two things. Click next and it should identify your iPod. I got this method from Apple technical support. Hope it helps. Contact me if you have any other question. 4. Take the iPod to Apple store, the technical support will help you fix the problem.

You can get a replacement docking PCB at Ridax. With this you just replace the broken PCB. This can also be used to upgrade a working iPod HiFi to work with newer iPods or iPhones.

Ipod dock is broken on xtrememac tango

well your lucky the dock gave up the ghost before your ipod.
it's possible there is some damage to your ipod also but those docks will fry your ipod toot sweet.
I would not use the dock at all but if you are i would first try hooking your ipod up to a computer with a usb just to make sure it's not damaged in the charging port.

if you have a RCA jack in the dock you can use that, but the ipod is not made to play through the charging port, the docks are an after thought and I am not sure why but possibly incorrect voltage or voltage surges, but i have replaced at least 30 motherboards of customers who played them on docks.
your ipod wouldn't by chance be a 30gb video or a 3rd gen nano?
seems those are the 2 most susceptible to this issue.

My Warning: if it still plays music leave it off the dock

My im600 is new but never charged my ipod. It played OK at first but the adapter does not charge the battery. The player does not play without the battery and then only for about 5 seconds. Is it just a...

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!

Attachment and volume control

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.
