Sounds like a possible problem with the firmware on the iPod. Did you update before the problem started? This has been a real problem with updates for iPods. I've even had an update cause a pair of earbuds to not work anymore.
First things first, unplug the SoundDock. Plug it back in and try again. Then take the Dock insert out....and try it again. If that doesnt work check the power cable. A common problem is that people plug it in the wrong way into the Bose SoundDock. If that still doesnt fix your problem. Bring the product to your nearest bose store if its still in warrenty. If not, call 1(800)644-2673.

My bose docking station is making a loud knocking sound when I put the ipod in it.


You have it plugged in, incorrectly! You need to look and find the symbol that is on the plug end and match it with the symbol on the back of sound dock. As time goes by the plug can get a little worn down allowing it to be plugged in, in any orientation, thus causing the knocking sound that you hear, that should fix the problem, enjoy!

I have no radio siegnel from my ipod nano in my bose sound dock


The ipod headphone cord acts as an antenna, and with the design of the nano you can't plug them into the ipod and the docking station at the same time. You can buy an audio adapter cable - a 3.5mm to 3.5mm one; just plug one end into your ipod and the other end into the aux port on the back of your dock. You can then use the radio, as the cable will act as the antenna. I got one on ebay - the cable has plugs on each end which are the same size as your ipod headphone plug. You can also get them in variety stores or electrical stores.

I have a denon ipod dock and a harman/kardon receiver. Can I connect the dock to the receiver?


To plug the dock into the receiver to supply power and interface with the iPod you would have to have one with a built in iPod. Most receivers will not do that, the most common way to connect an iPod to a receiver is using a 3.5mm to RCA cable. You don't even need the dock to do this, you can plug the iPod directly in. You can find this cable at most electronics shops if you don't want to buy online, like Best Buy or Radioshack.
Make sure you connect the white and the red end of the RCA cable to the correct sockets on your receiver, and the small 3.5mm jack into the iPod or the iPod dock, you have to turn the iPod volume up and select the corresponding input on your receiver. If you plugged the 2 RCA jacks (white & red) into the socket labeled "AUX" or "Video 1" you have to select "AUX" or "Video 1" in order to hear the sound.

I cant get any sound when i plug in the 8GB iTouch


Chances are it's the docking module... try pulling the ipod forward and see if you get some sound.

One can slip something in behind the ipod to prop it so it will give sound sometimes but overtime the problem gets worse in my experience.

There's the Auxillary input as well in the back... i.e. running an adapter from the headphone jack to the back. For an Ipod Classic one can leave it in the docking station re-charging - for the nano, with the headphone jack on the bottom it can't be placed in the docking station (though can be - recharged when not plugged in)

Don't forget to switch the selection to Auxiliary rather than Ipod

That being said, in terms of sound quality, the quality is much better (highs are higher) when plugged into the docking station compared to the Auxiliary input

Bose sound dock - no sound comes through it but my ipod works with the ear plugs so it's not my ipod


I had this problem for the pat two days. Believe it or not I took my Ipod touch of the dock. Shut the power off to the Ipod to reset it. Also the power to the docking station. turned everything back on. Put the Ipod back into the docking station and heard the beep.. and hit play and it was working again. Not sure but shutting Ipod off does act like a reset.

Ihome won't play ipod, even after resetting ipod I have de same problem. I got an itouch 2nd generation and docked it on a speaker that supports it. It worked fine for two or three hours, but suddenly it...


Welcome to the wonderful world of the iHome frying the Ipod.
Your iHome, has most likely fried the mainboard on your ipod.
to check plug a usb into the ipod and connect to the computer.
if it comes up disconnect the usb and try a headphones in the jack.
if it doesn;t play sound its fried and you will need a new mainboard.
if it does play through the headphone jack, your lucky and keep it off the dock.

I have fixed at least 30 ipods taken out by ihome docks and other docks.
they are terrible for the ipod. Even Apple sells the docks on their website
that shows how much they care about the product.

If this helps leave a vote on fixya

I had the same problem but with a different TEAC docking product.
My TEAC would not recognize my ipod therefore I was unable to control my ipod via the docking station remote control.
Plug your ipod into the docking station and power down (reboot) your ipod. Once the ipod powers down (in the dock) restart the ipod (yes, while in the dock).

Ipod dock plugged it, switch to DMPORT no sound from speakers


I had the same problem. I tried everything and finally following two fixed the problem:

Dock insert has to be put before inserting Ipod in the dock. Dock insert usually comes with iPod when you buy it....After inserting the doc I was able to hear the sound but it was very faint. Then I updated the ipod's firmware. My Ipod classic was two years old. I updated the firmware by connecting it to the PC and opening itunes. Clicked on 'ipod' link and clicked to update button.

After the update, this ipod started working with my home theater system's DMPort.

HTH.

Hello Nada19,

The dock connector is the connector at the bottom of the iPod which the USB cable you use to connect the iPod to your computer plugs into. This is also the connector that is used to connect your iPod to a "dock" such as this one. An iPod dock, like this one is a device that you drop your iPod into for charging. It typically also has a connection for external speakers that can be used with the dock.

Not all models of iPod have a dock connector. And the actual layout of the dock connector varies from model to model. It sounds like you will need to use an iPod model that does have a dock connector to interface with the karaoke machine. You may also need an interface cable. Consult the documentation of your karaoke machine for more detailed info.

Best Regards,
Ken
