ILive docking station not working properly

My iLive IS208B iPod docking station doesn't have any sound coming.The clock is working; once I dock the 2nd generation iPod nano it turns on and off too but the speakers of the docking station are not working neither does the blue light at the bottom of it light up any more.
Thanks in advance for your help.

    same problem. The functions seem to be working, although no sound is produced and the blue background LED is not on. I've taken in dowm and removed the power source, but upon pluggin it in again the same problem occurs.

    yes i have ahd the same problem for about a week now and it still doesnt work even when i left it alone for 3 days it still didnt turn on.

    We have plugged it in, and everything is working, but no sound comes out. When you turn the volume all the way up, and out your head to the speakers, you can hear them crackling/humming, but no iPod sound comes out. Seems like a manufacturing error.

    mine isn't working either! it worked fine last night, and i turned it on this morning and no sound came out. the blue light that is usually on is not working either.

    This thing stinks.I had the same thing happen with another iLIVE.I'm taking it back and get my money back and buy a Sony.

  • Shane Gooden Jan 15, 2009

    I have the same problem only I have two of these and they are brand new out of the box. I do not get any sound no matter what function I have it set to no matter how high I turn up the volume or how low I take it. I have tried every setting and function on these radios without any results. I sure would appreciate any information anyone can give me..I bought these on sale and the store will not take these back..right now they are only an expensive ipod charger....

    Bought this IS208B for my daughter Jan'09. Worked until March'09! lights up
    but no clock, no sound, no anything. Did not drop or damage. I emailed
    the company's support today and hopefully will get a helpful response.
    Will post if I do.
