    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!

Aei music prodisc/ds play and remix lights flash but no sound

DMX Music prodisc systems. I own one. I have had multiple errors, what sequence do the diodes flash in, is it green-orange-green-orange, or do they both flash at the same time? One at a time means a stuck cd drawer, and two together is "Generic Error 000x80x87. Try a DMX lens cleaner through the system. If you do not have one of those spare, look at the back of the player, you will see DIP Switches, flip the 1st one up and you may play normal cds, try a generic lens cleaner though it, if it doesnt work, try contacting Mood Media (The new name for DMX Music)

Hi. I have power and my i pod charges, but no sound is transmitted even though the i pod indicates it is playing whilst connected to the Zeppelin. Any ideas.

could be the arm, or the interface from the arm to the pcb. if you can play via the aux input it is the arm, if that fails then it is one of the boards inside, contact place of purchase or b and w service.
