It may not take the iPod directly if it doesn't have a dock built in, but you can always connect the iPod to an available input with a suitable cable. You'll need a cable with a plug to fit the iPod headphone jack (a 1/8-inch stereo plug) at one end, and probably RCA plugs at the receiver end. Radio Shack sells one so you can see what you're looking for. If you have an iPod dock, they often have audio output jacks for connecting to your receiver. You may need a cable with RCA plugs on both ends.
I probably have the same type charger / player that I also purchased from Wal Mart. If it plays your ipod it should also charge it. Make sure the lock button on the ipod is unlocked and it's turned off. If that does not work keep it unlocked and leave it on. On systems like we have that are not iHomes they sometimes have trouble figuring out what brand they need to charge.
How old is it? if it's under warranty apple may fix it. Simply, if you charge your iPod through you computer then the battery could be damaged. USB ports only put out 5 volts. If you have an AC charger that puts out 9.5 volts then consider charging it with that. Some AC adapters only put out 5 volts for the purpose matching the USB standard, but it's not good for the ipod.
