    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.

  • brownietoes Dec 25, 2008

    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.


  • emmavntr Dec 29, 2008

    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.

Switch on akai58022 tower speaker, it worked when I got it today and now it wont even switch on


what do you have it plugged-into for power ? it uses the 8-pin Apple Lightning dock connector. If you are using a USB adapter for that, then be aware that a USB-port will only let you draw 500mA or 1/2 an Amp of power....more than that will cause failures and damage to the USB port and the Hub even.

Marantz how to connect 6005 amplifier to ipod


There are many solutions, I show two. The tip photo, shows a more expansive one. the lower photo the cheaper one. But both have two tulip plugs on the side for the amplifier and one 3,5 mm stereo telephone plug to the other side.
I tried both on a good stereo set, and could not hear different quality in sound. My guess, the quality comping from my iPods, iPhone and iPad is not the same as from my CD player. On the CD player, a better cable proved to give a better sound.

I have a Rowe R80 jukebox and after moving it it has no sound through the speakers I am in New Zealand


Well, in addition to all the fine suggestions that are here, I would like to add the simple and easy things that may have happened during the move.

IF YOU ARE NOT GETTING A LOUD POP WHEN THE MACHINE IS POWERED ON.......

1) Make sure that the wires on the terminals below are still connected to the screws. There is one ground and one each for left and right. The lower the tap the lower the (max) volume of the jukebox.If they are not connected there will be no sound.
84c9065c-b7c6-4417-be21-0be7a6e74b41.jpg


There is a jumpers on the terminal strip where the volume control connects. Make sure that these connections are correct and tight. Also make sure that the jumpers did not fall off.

If you are getting the loud pop in the speakers when the power is turned on .....

Check the plug on the side of the mechanism, just below the back of the tone are.(looks like a little tube socket) Check to see that it is connected to the mech and the CORRECT PLACE on the amplifier. It mat be possible to have this end in the wrong place. bf77613e-82a3-4e37-b8fe-cc80f4d4dbcb.jpg

Check all all your connections against the pic.

I hope this was helpful.

How to reset my combination lock number on ipod A1236


Hi William
If you have forgotten the code or put the wrong code in your ipod, you can unlock the Ipod by doing the following:
Connect your IPod to the primary computer you use it with (the first one Ipod synced with), and open iTunes.
When you disconnect iPod from the computer, it will no longer be locked.
If you can't unlock Ipod using either (the code or connecting it to the computer you use to manage its songs). . . you can restore your ipod to factory settings using ipod Updater.
Please note that this will erase all data on your ipod.
Afterwards, you can add your music and data back to your ipod.
If you want to change the primary computer that your Ipod is associated with, do this:
1. Restore your iPod. WARNING: The restore process cannot be undone.
All of your songs and files will be deleted.
Always make a backup of your important data.
2. Connect your ipod to the computer that you want to be the primary computer.
3. Open iTunes and synchronize.
If you can't unlock your ipod and you don't have access to the primary computer, your only option is to restore the Ipod, which will erase all music and data.

I have a 1970's Panasonic Flip Clock Radio. (Model RC6530) The radio works just fine, but the flp clock stopped flipping. There is power going to the unit. I can also hear a low hum from the flip...


It looks like your problem might be an easy fix, at least. If the gear train between the motor and clock got stripped, you'd be in a bit more trouble. If the motor just isn't spinning, remove it from the side of the clock housing. There are 2 screws (or nuts) holding it in place. When you get it off, the cover for the motor will also be off. Apply some 3 in 1 oil, or perhaps just a tiny bit of penetrating oil, and give it a spin. From what I've read, it should do just fine. A lot of people use wd40, but I understand that can gum up over time.

This is a "at your own risk" type of repair, but as long as you unplug it before dismantling the radio, I think you'll be fine.

Your radio should have come with a receiver of some sort for the radio signals to set itself. I had this same issue with my clock when the battery in the receiver died ... try replacing this too. It took me forever to figure out what it was because I had forgotten that it had its own radio receiver ... then once I remembered it existed, I had to find it, but replacing the battery fixed the problem. Hope that helps :-)
