Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with this but I'll do my best to help you.

It should still work, even if it has the older connector you an get a 30 pin to lightening adapter which will continue to supply both power/charge and playback functions:

You could also get a bluetooth adapter (though your ipod/phone would need separate power still) that would allow wireless operation:

Lastly, you may be able to use an auxiliary connection via the headphone port on the ipod if your dock model has a minijack connection on back:

If you have any other questions, just let me know. Otherwise, please take a moment to rate my service as this is the only way I am credited for my time. Hopefully I have earned 5 Stars but if not please let me know what I can do to ensure you are satisfied. I also invite you to contact me directly with any future support needs at and ask for Nathan.
