My 30-pin dock is connected to my lightning to 30-pin connector which is connected to my iPod touch 5g. But my iPod will only charge, and will not play music through my dock, only through the iPod's internal speaker. Help please!

Have you tried resetting both the iPod and dock? To reset the iPod, press and hold the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons together long enough for the Apple logo to appear.
To reset the dock, unplug it and plug it back in.

  • Ipod Touch is not playing music through doc.

    Ipod Touch (3rd gen) is not playing music through doc.  No problem until yesterday.  It still works fine off doc but as of yesterday it will only either charge (most of the time) or play music (rare), Not both.  Also the message "accessory is not supported by ipod touch" periodically shows up on the ipod touch screen.
    My other daughters ipod touch (2nd gen) works on this doc as normal.  Also, both of these ipod touches still work on my 2nd daughters stereo doc normally.
    Both are on software 4.2.1

    Look into the dock connector on the problem iPod.  Look for dirt, debris, bent or broken connector and other abnormalities.  Compare with the working iPod.

  • Hi, my brand new iphone 4 will not play music through my music app but it will play videos through youtube and will play the sounds throught my games and will play text tones and facetime ect. what is wrong?

    hi, my brand new iphone 4 will not play music through my music app but it will play videos through youtube and will play the sounds throught my games and will play text tones and facetime ect. what is wrong?

    At least I'm not the only one with the issue. I was looking it up so see if others had the same problem and found a bunch of posts about it. I'm assuming it's not the phone then, it's the software. Should I bring it to the Apple Store? Replacing the phone seems stupid, because the phone isn't really the problem. It's the software! Maybe the iOS 5.0.2 will fix it???  I don't really want to wait though, it's a pain. If a lot of people have this issue it should get Apple's attention. They need to do something to fix it, ASAP!

  • Will the lightning to 30 pin adapter play music through my dock

  • IPhone 4 using iOS 6.0.1 will not play music through my car stereo

    I have an iPhone 4 since it became available on Verizon's network.  I have had no issues with my phone since I began using it.  I own a 2008 VW Rabbit with the optional iPhone/iPod docking station to play music through the car's stereo.  I purchased a docking extention cable because my phone would not fit on the docking connector properly due to my phone case.  Everything has been working beautifully, sans the charging feature, until a few weeks ago.  Normally, I would start the iPod app, load the song or playlist I want to play, and plug it in to begin hearing my music.  However, recently the music stopped playing through my car speakers and only played through the built-in speakers on my phone once plugged into the docking station.  I have tried hard-rebooting (holding home button/sleep button at same time until Apple logo appears), soft rebooting (holding sleep button to slide power off), exiting all open apps, opening/closing iPod app, changing different settings through the Settings app, etc.  I am at my wits' end.  I use my phone to listen to my loaded music, Pandora and Slacker Radio.  It has gotten really boring listening to local radio during my commutes.  Please Community, help me!

    i have same problem in UK - my phone no longer works with my car cable - it will charge the phone, my ipad works fine, as does my old itouch so I know that the cable is ok.  It comes up with no connection even though it is charging it. It used to be fine I dont understand why this would happen?

  • IPhone (3G & 2G) Not Playing Music Through Intempo RDi Since 3.1 Update

    Both my partners iPhone 2G and my 3G have stopped reliably playing music through our Intempo RDi DAB/Dock device since upgrading them to 3.1
    When connecting either iPhone to the device no music is played and the iPhone does not respond to button presses on the remote. If the iPhone is left playing music the device will sometimes eventually start making sound after 45-60 seconds but will often stop again. The device will also not produce any sound in DAB or FM mode if the iPhone is connected to charge but works fine as soon as the iPhone is disconnected.
    Both phones tell me that the device is not 'made to work with an iPhone' (or whatever the standard message is) when they're connected and offer to go into airplane mode. They always did this on earlier firmware revisions but continued to play music okay.
    There's a post from another user on these forums relating to a similar issue with an iPod Touch on 2.2.1 that was resolved with a replacement iPod but I'm suspicious as both phones started exhibiting the issue at the same time. I've also logged a call with Intempo's customer support so I'll see how that goes, too...

    First of all what kind of "Restore" are you doing? When an iphone is having issues its either a "Software" issue or a "Hardware" issue. You would eliminate the easiest one first which is software. Because the iphone is like a small computer be advised that it can have errors with 3rd party applications and its own operating system which may affect the way the iphone works.
    You need to restore the iphone to the factory settings. After that you must setup your iphone as new and not from the backup. You then can sync back any data from itunes or your computer. You however cannot restore from a backup which may contain errors.
    If your issue still persist afterwards from a restore as new iphone then you got yourself a hardware issue. As there are plenty other iphones out there without the issue.
    However from the information I gather I dont believe your issue is with software. faint images and grey horizontal lines is indication of physical or accidental damage to the hardware. Be advise it can be external or internal hardware damage or failure.

  • My iPod touch won't play music through the dock speakers

    The other day I went to plug my IPod touch into my dock to play some music, as i do every night. My dock seemed fine, my IPod started charging, but when i turned the music on it only played out of the IPod speakers, not out of the dock. i figured it was the dock that was broken, so i plugged my IPod into my backup dock and it did the exact same thing. The only way i can get my IPod to play music out of the dock is to plug it in through the headphone jack. My IPod still plays music out loud so i have no idea what's wrong.

    There is another thread entitled "brand new iPod touch 4th gen will not sit on dock of Sony Dream Machine" that mentions similar problems and claims to be resolved. Actually it is not. Some say that there is a plastic piece to bend but it is unspecified which one they are thinking of and which way to "bend" it. Besides, I am not sure any guaranty will work if one does this kind of work on the iPod. It would be preferable if someone from Apple would take responsibility and mention what has to be done or if there will be a recall of the items with a modified system.

  • I just recently purcased my new ipod touch 5 but, have forgotten my password. It has not yet been connected to a computer but has been conected to icloud. How can I reset my password?

    Hi, I just recently purchased an ipod touch 5 and have already forgotten my password. I have not yet connected it to my computer so when I tried today it didn't show up as a device. When I tried to go into icloud on my other device, thinking that may help, it would not let me change the email because it was my school ipad. What should I do?

    Place the iOS device in Recovery Mode and then connect to your computer and restore via iTunes. The iPod will be erased.

  • Why can I not play music through my headphones while the power cord is plugged in?

    When my headphones and power cord are plugged in at the same time, audio will not play through the headphones, and the volume bar goes away. Why?

    What is the other end of the power cord plugged in to? If it isn't an Apple wall adapter the phone probably sees it as an audio device.

  • Apple tv 2 and 1 not playing sound through optical out.

    Hello all, just bought a new atv2. Thought I'd stress the difficulty i had in getting it to stream from the main Mac in the house. What a pain. Silly home sharing, why it couldn't be as simple as atv1!
    Anyway it's working now. My issue is this; I want to use the atv2 as a music streaming device and not attach it to a screen. I will control it from my iPhone remote.
    After connecting it to 2 hifis with optics I can't get sound to come out. In fact none of the 3 atvs seem to work by simply connecting directly to the optical out. Sure they are all fine when connected by hdmi. But I don't always want the tvs left on.
    Also, I'm having difficulty in getting the atvs to act as remote speakers systems when i operate the main music library. I guess this will all be resolved when i work out how to get the optics to work!
    Thanks in advance.

    Apple TV may or may not work without a screen. Some devices will not function unless they "sense" a display. This is particularly likely to be the case with a HDMI device, which uses a communication protocol that requires handshaking with the display.
    The most common reason why optical inputs might not work with a receiver is that the receiver is not configured to take the sound off the optical port. Most modern receivers can accept sound from multiple ports, and optical is often not the default. Note that you can tell whether the AppleTV is generating a signal by unplugging the optical cable from your receiver and looking for the red light. at the tip of the cable.

  • I have a 2nd or 3rd generation iPod touch. Recently, it doesn't recognize headphones and will only play music through it's speakers. I've tried cleaning the area where you plug in the headphones but this has not helped. What should I do?

    My ipod touch (2nd or 3rd generation) won't recognize headphones anymore! I have'nt gotten it wet or dropped it. I've tried cleaning out the plug where you plug the headphones in. I've had no luck. Is this fixable or is it time to trash this iPod?

    - Try cleaning out/blowing out the headphone jack. Try inserting/removing the plug a dozen times or so. There is a little switch in the headphone jack that disconnects the speaker when the headphone jack is inserted.
    Try the following to rule out a software problem
    - Reset the iOS device. Nothing will be lost
    Reset iPod touch: Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at
    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
    - Reset all settings
    Go to Settings > General > Reset and tap Reset All Settings.
    All your preferences and settings are reset. Information (such as contacts and calendars) and media (such as songs and videos) aren’t affected.
    - Restore from backup
    - Restore to factory settings/new iOS device.
    - Make an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store. Seems you have a bad headphone jack.
    Apple Retail Store - Genius Bar
    If not under warranty Apple will exchange your iPod for a refurbished one for this price. They do not fix yours.
    Apple - iPod Repair price                  
    A third-party place like the following will replace the jack for less. Google for more.
    iPhone Repair, Service & Parts: iPod Touch, iPad, MacBook Pro Screens
    Replace the jack yourself

    It i likely not worth getting it fixed if a bad headphone jack

  • IPod Touch 4 will not play music through iHome iP37

    My new iHome works with my iPod Touch 1st gen but when I plug in my 4th gen everything works but the sound comes out of the internal speaker and not the iHome speakers. I would love any ideas.

    I'm having the same problem on 2 different ihome clock radios. My classic ipod works fine, but the ipod touch music comes out the ipod touch speakers only. What gives?
