Just purchased a used iH9 and I can't get any sound from the radio or ipod. I'm pretty sure I'm doing everything right and I've reset the iH9 by removing the batteries and disconnecting the power. Any suggestions?

First, check the antenna for your i-pod, make sure it is having reception because if there is no reception, the radio won't work. Also, make sure it is on FM frequency.

If non of the above is the cause of the problem, then it means the turner of your radio is defective or the antenna may have be disconnected from the inside of the i-pod.

Get a screw driver, use it to carefully disassemble the i-pod, first, make sure the antenna is intact, before checking on the turner.

Check the below picture to have an idea of what the turner looks like;


The turner is the black long thing at the left side of the board. It usually have a coil round about it. I don't means this is the board of your i-pod, but it must have a turner.

If you don't find any obvious fault on the turner, then I would suggest you take the i-pod to a repairman to fix the fault for you.

Good luck.

Make sure the ipod dock connector is clear of any debris both the on the dock and on the ipod. Use a can of air to clean these and try reconnecting it.

Try updating your software on your ipod. Plug it into itunes and update.

You could try a universal remote, though it's likely to be as expensive as an original remote.

The lowest price I could find (via Froogle) for this remote is here:

Did you try removing the batteries and connecting only the adapter ? If the time is still displayed, then your adapter is still good.

the problem you are facing in the iPod is same as my one. it generally happens due to rough usage of iPod and if you accidentally hear songs while sleeping and if you pull any of the wires and put your weight on your ipod, these things happen.
so the solution is just get it to a service provider near you. as he can assist you with best solution.
