Have you tried another iPod on it?? I suspect that if you do, that one won't work either. If it's a Bose SoundDock then they are well known for having problems with the iPod connector getting loose. Try with another iPod. If results are the same, take your SoundDock back. Bose should exchange it straight away.

try doing a firmware update when you plug it into your computer, there should be an option in iTunes in the My iPod section to check for new firmware.

Ipod nano buttons refuse to work when not connected to a stereo


please try resetting your ipod (hold the center and play buttons for a while), or restoring it on iTunes.

maybe the iPod is 'messed up' and 'thinks' it's buttons are the docking station ones, not itself's

My ipod is not connecting on Bose docking station.


Some of the older docking stations don't recognize the next gen iPods.
Refer to your user manual to see what iPods are compatible with your system.

Docking station


Hi!

I would suggest that you by-pass any docking stations and connect it directly via usb charger as most ipods do. And also, try to update Itunes and your Ipod Nano software.


Thanks and good luck! =)

Docking station problems


I have the same problem. The screen is frozen ? I put my ipod on and press play and it freezes. I found the solution though. Let it go dead and then hold the play button. Its a long process but it plays just fine on my docking station after that. If it happens again then you may have to repeat the same process.

Ipod nano not charging on docking system, it has low battery if none, can play with a little charge on ipod but has to be charged with plug first, the docking system is brand new aswell and is charging...


for some **** reason the new ipod nano (4th generation) does not support FireWire and therefore will not charge on any docking station that is a FireWire power sorce - which seems to be most of them out there!
have same problem so will end up charging from computer as docking station still plays the new nano, no point in buying new docking station just for sake of charging!

Ipod nano blinks


I bought an Ipod shuffle 2nd generation yesterday, it charged all night and orange light was still blinking. Tried listening to songs and sometimes it would play but most times wouldn't. Took it back for exchange and same problem. Then I realized the problem is not with the USB plug or computer reoconizing ipod but in the docking itself. I applied pressure on the top side of docked Ipod and bottom of docking station and the computer recognized the Ipod. Release pressure and lose connection. The problem is that the docking station and earbuds do not connect with ipod and the fixes provided by apple doesn't address or fix this problem.
