    Sounddock is not working. When I put the IPOD in it lights up and the Ipod will show to be playing but no sound comes out of the speakers. I was using it at school on a Friday and came back on Sunday and it wouldn't work. I tried replugging and making sure everything was connected correctly but it was no use!

When i connect my i phone 4 to my h k dock i get a message saying this accsesory is not supported in charging

It sounds like you have the version which was built before the iPhone updated and changed its dock slightly. It's still the same wide dock but like a lot of stations the updates to iPhone's hardware left compatiability issues. Most importantly, it will still sound perfect.

How do i hook up my i pod up to a mcm530 philips stereo system?

If it has an aux imput all you need to do is get a dock (which will keep the battery charged while playing) or the cheaper way - by connecting a 3.5mm plug to two RCA phono plugs- lead. The 3.5mm plug goes into the headphone output of the I-Pod and the RCA's go into the Aux imput of the Philips.
It can be any imput on the amp (except phono) such as CD or tape.
You will find that you need to turn up the volume on the I-Pod to hear the sound.

Original DVD plays black and white

It seems that you have get the color system setting of your Tv wrong. Sony uses the Pal(it's a format for the transmission of signals) color system , so check into your TV's color system settings and change it to pal , if that doesnt work then change it to Ntsc.
