You cannot get your iHome to turn on.
If your iHome is not on battery power and won't turn on when it's plugged into a wall outlet, then your iHome is not properly connected to its AC adapter. Plug the included AC adapter into a wall outlet, then plug the adapter jack's plug into the DC power jack on the left side of your iHome iP37.
Your iHome is connected to the adapter, which is connected to the wall outlet, but it won't turn on. Check if there is power running through the plugged in outlet and make sure the wall outlet is turned on.
If your iHome is only running on battery power (it's not plugged into the wall outlet), and your iHome does not turn on, check that the internal batteries are sufficiently charged by using a multi-meter. If not, replace the batteries with 4 new AA batteries. You can easily access the batteries by pushing the tabs on the lower section and removing the panel.
If your AC adapter is plugged into a wall outlet and your iHome's DC power jack, but it still will not turn on, then the DC power jack and its connected board could be malfunctioning. Click here for a complete guide to fix this problem.
You turn up the volume and the device suddenly shuts off.
If your iHome shuts down in the middle of your song, the batteries might not be supplying enough power to play loudly because they aren't sufficiently charged. Try replacing the batteries or plugging the iHome into a wall outlet using the AC adapter.

Your iHome is on, but it does not play music from the device.
Your device might not be fitting into the interface due to using the wrong docking adapter. Take out the current black docking adapter and replace it with the one that fits your Apple device. Three adapters are included. If none of these fit your device, then do not use an adapter and plug it into the interface directly.

Your Apple device is unresponsive to the iHome.
If your Apple device does not turn on while on the docking station, your device might be in sleep mode. To wake up the device, press the home button on the bottom of your device (iPod Touch and iPhones) or your lock button on the top of your device (iPods).
If your Apple device does not turn on when you press home/lock button, your Apple device might be low in power. Make sure you charge your device separately or charge your Apple device through the iHome by plugging the iHome into wall outlet.
Your Apple device is docked on the iHome, but it isn't charging.
If your Apple device is correctly put onto the iHome's docking interface and your Apple device is not charging, the AC power supply might not be fully plugged into the outlet or iHome. The iHome will not charge any device while it is running solely on battery power, so plugging the iHome into the wall outlet is necessary for charging. To charge your device, make sure the AC adapter is securely plugged into both the wall outlet and iHome DC power jack.

When it is plugged in, it will not use any of the batteries power, allowing them to be saved for later use.
