Question about Electronics - Others

1 Answer

Thank you for helping. We have had out Islim Docking Station for about 3 years. But today can't turn it on, the time in 0.00, the 0 is flashing and the alarm symbol is up (haven't knowingly set an alarm on it before). I read the manual and tried the setting the alarm, unsetting it etc but no buttons seem to be doing anything. It won't turn on if I put the standby button. It seems to have frozen, have turned it off at the power switch which also made no difference other than change the time to 0.00. Any help would be gratefully recieved

This iPod dock has inside it a small and very simple processor with a basic memory chip attached to it - the role of the memory chip is to remember all the clock settings, the FM frequencies and the iPod connection parameters.
In your unit that small memory chip has failed so the processor can't do anything because there is no place where to store all the information it needs to store and use - the blinking of the first number indicates that the main clock settings are gone and you need to input them back; when you try to input even just the first digit the processor tries to store it on the memory chip; when that fails it simply refuses to go any further and it freezes.
This is unfixable , the unit is dead. The only way it could be possible to fix it would be by replacing the mainboard, on which the memory chip is soldered. But that is not cost effective - the spare board and the labor would cost more than $150, almost twice as much as a new unit. So just discard this one and buy a new one.

Docking stations


The issue can be caused by a problem within the dock, a software glitch or a problem with the Nano's hardware. If the docking station isn't plugged in or working properly, your iPod Nano's battery might have drained.

Hi there,
you should try plugging from the output port of the laptop to the input port of the docking station, remember the source is coming from your laptop going to the docking station.
Now for the microphone once you have the settings right the line in jack should work properly.
Hope this helps!

Hello - I've had my SKYFi2 receiver for about 4 1/2 years. For the past 6 months it cuts in and out, as in, plays the station that I'm on, then it stops and just says "antenna". ...


Hi Kathy,

It sounds like its the antenna, although it could be the docking station itself, or even the receiver. The best way to narrow it down is by testing against other equipment (if you happen to have other docking stations and or antennas) If it produces the same result you know its the radio. If you swap antennas and it works, obviously the antenna; and the same goes for the docking station. You can find replacements at tss-radio.com.

Updated laptop to windows 7....need updated software for targus acp50


The Targus ACP50US Docking Station does not seem to have an updated driver for Windows 7. You can attempt to install the docking station using the driver found at this link but that may not work as it is only meant to be used for Windows 2000, XP, and Vista. I'm sorry but if that driver does not work, the docking station will not work until there is a new driver for Windows 7.

Thank you for using FixYa!

Camera won't charge


Hi!

It's a problem with the battery. It already reached it's life cycle. I had the same problem with my 15 month old casio camera a year ago - flashing red light on docking station. I even tried borrowing a docking station/charger to see if something else is wrong with it.

The only solution for this is to have the battery replace.

I hope that helps.

Good luck and have a nice day!
