How to prevent iPhone audio interference in speakers
Authored by: virusdoc on Jan 07, '08 04:44:38PM

My classic 30gig iPod does this as well, but only on two stereo systems--my car (connected via headphone jack to AUX IN) and a bookshelf radio with and integrated dock. In both situations, touching the click wheel lightly so that the screen backlight comes on solves the problem--at least until the backlight goes off. In my car only, touching the metal housing on the back of the iPod also corrects the problem. I don't think this is a classic ground loop problem with my car stereo since the internal backlight being on corrects the problem.

I mention this only to suggest that this problem might not be unique to the GSM radio, and may instead reflect an unfortunate feedback between the iPod/iPhone audio amp circuitry and certain external amplifiers.

That sounds more like a problem specific to your ipod. Have you tried a different ipod in your car or dock?

Yes. Both my 2nd and 3rd gen nanos play normally in both. So it is possible my Classic has a defect, or that all Classics share this defect. I don't have another Classic to compare to.
