Sounddock power supply

I have lost the power supply for this unit. I can't find any on line, so I figured I can build one from two 18v power supplies. However, I don't know the pin out connections on the plug, ie. which one is +18vdc, -18 vdc and commons. Do you know what voltage is on what pin?

    I lost the power supply also. The volts DC for this is +18 volts and -18volts with 1 Amp current. I'am not sure whether we can get the connector, even if we manage to find an equivalent adapeter.

    I bound in 12 volts and 500 mA, and it functioned, if to need the photo of the connector I can take off and send for email.I go to buy an adapter in these specifications of 18 volts and 1 Amp, I make the tests and rank here again.tks

    Since I didn't find an answer to my question regarding the connector to the Bose Sounddock, I eventually bought a power supply. To help anyone else with the same problem, here is the pin configuration on the input socket. Looking at the socket, the upper right pin is +18v; the lower right pin is -18v; the upper left and lower left pins are commons. The power supply is rated at 1 amp for each 18 volt input. Hopes this helps someone.

    I put the power supply into 220 Volts, the display lit for seconds then went away without any sound or smell.

    Any solution for this.

    I thought of replacing the power adapter, but couldn't find the power specifications.

    Please help.

    The connections posted by "Comment by Guru28, posted on Nov 11, 2008" is incorrect for my Bose SoundDock (Version 1). For this model both the upper pins are Ground. The lower right is positive and left is negative.



    For a clear explanation and to make sure your connector looks as shown in picture. check this link:

Hi. To answer your question: The center line of the coaxial cable is ground. The inner metal side of the outer ring is the +18V. The outer metal side of the outer ring is the -18V. I will try to draw it below:

Bose SoundDock Power Supply Pin-outs so I can test one


Hi, The pinouts are as labelled below. The original Bose supply allows for 1A max current, so I would prevent your power supply from going above that.

My bose sounddock portable system suddenly stopped working so I thought it needed charging, when I plugged it back in to the mains it wont charge and no light comes on the system at all it's totally...


Guys - she has the protable!! Hi Fiona, the best bet is to visit www.invebo.com and check the SounDock Portable diagnostic video. (Repair video is there too) Remove the battery and plug the power in., If you get a beep-beep sound then the unit has power and is booting up so you need a docking connector replacement kit. . If there is no beep beep then it is the power supply or the main unit. (Try a different power supply) . If it works normally then it is the battery - get a new battery. Hope that helps.

I have a BOSE soundock portable and I have to replace my connector at the end of the power supply.What is the size of the connector.


Bose uses a proprietary connector for their power supply. Your best bet would be to purchase one, for example at this site: http://www.frontrowelectronics.com/bose-power-supply-sounddock-series-1-white.aspx?utm_source=googleBase&utm_medium=referal&utm_campaign=Bose
The four pin connector is not standard and cannot be found in stores such as Radio Shack, etc.

New ipod nano not compatable with bose docking


This is true. The new iPod nano is not compatible with the original SoundDock. This only means that it won't charge the iPod's power. Audio should be okay. This is an Apple issue. They changed the way almost all of their iPods charge (except the iPod classic). Bose can upgrade the SoundDock for their normal repair fee of $99. This would also you a new 1 year warranty.

Bose sound dock doesn't work at all


If this is the original SoundDock, the power supply in back is 4 pronged and a pin could be broken. If it makes a quiet thumping sound, then just make sure the power supply is not plugged in upside down (it's easy enough to do).
If this is the SoundDock II or the SoundDock portable, it's hard to say why this would happen, so you should call Bose on that one. There should be an indicator light that tells you when it has power..

Plastic shroud pulled out of docking station power port.


If the 4 input jacks on the back of the SoundDock seem to be okay, then just order a new power supply. If this is not the case, send it in for repair ($100) which upgrades the SoundDock to be able to use the newer iPods (iPod touch 2nd gen, new nano, iPhone 3G)
They give you a new 1 year warranty as well.

Missing power cable for Bose Sounddock


Repair may the only solution. The new power supply is only slightly different though.. If you don't want to spent the $100 to repair this, you could get the new supply and carve a notch in the top part of the square power input.. Looking at the new power supply, the top is a bit taller and arched but the same specs..
But the new power supply is still expensive. (I think $60+) So for an additional $40 ($100 total) you can get a new supply retrofitted on to the old input. It's worth it- you get a new 1 year warranty, and they put the new Apple dock connector on there (USB charge pin) as well as the power supply, so you can use current iPods as well as old. (Your SD currently won't support- iPhone 3G, iPod Touch 2ng gen, or iPod Nano 4th gen.. it will after a repair)
