Question about Bose SoundDock Digital Music System for Apple iPod - White

1 Answer

Bose soundock i had no problem with my soundock until i turned it off at the wall. It was turned off for about 4 days. When i turned it back on the i-pod would not play through it, but was fine through the headphones.The dock is about 3 years old and has never had an issue. I know power is passing through it and through to the pod, and i have checked the circuit boards for any scoring but they LOOK fine.         Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time  Beau

U need to Check  the power supply is providing +18 VDC and -18VDC. 
If  it is  then open the sounddock and examine the power supply connector....very very closely.
The power connector had intermittent connection to the sound dock circuit board. Looking closely (mangifing glass) you might see cracks in the solder around the connector pins. This is a cold solder agravated by rough handing of the power cord. Resolder the pins on the connector on the bottom side of the board. Make sure the solder flows around the pin and through the board. else i suppose  its a problems with the port that plugs into the ipod.

No sound from docking station


The most likely cause is a damaged docking connector. However if there was no incident with knocking, wrenching or mistreatment of the dock connector, it may be another cause. If you turned the power off after it had been on a long time and the dock didn't start up again then: 1: If it is charging the ipod but no sound then the sound processor as failed.2.If it isn't charging the ipod then watch the diagnostic video: SounDock Original Check & Diagnostic

Bose sounddock remote and ipod menu functions


Unfortunately I've never seen a universal remote that will control the extra functions of this. If it's the original SoundDock, you can only do: volume, power, play/pause, skip/scan. If this is a SoundDock II or SoundDock Portable, you can only control: volume, power, play/pause, skip/scan, and playlist up/ playlist down. Quite honestly, that's all I need to do on my SoundDock. I can't really read what's on my iPod from where I'm sitting in the first place. It may be possible to use a universal learning remote for this, but you'd have to teach commands from an apple remote as well as the bose remote, and the learning remote (+apple remote) may cost you over 1/3 the cost of the SoundDock. It also may not work perfectly. I hope this helps somewhat.

BOSE SOUNDOCK CONNECTRO BROKE


You can't - the repair needs to be done centrally as the company would be at risk if it sold electrical parts to people who aren't qualified to repair such items. Therefore you need to call Bose and have this repaired, however it's quite a common fault so shouldn't cost too much.

Problem with Ipod Nano 3d generation and Bose Soundock


Try other iPods - if they work with no problems it is a problem with the iPod software, connect this to iTunes to get it updated, and also try a soft reset (hold down menu+center buttons for about ten seconds) if you still get issues, contact Bose.

Bose Sounddock - Speakers have a loud hiss at low song volume


Here is how I fixed the hissing noise in my Soundock;
--Pull the bottom plate off (It is attached by 4 screws)
--There is a green motherboard with 2 ribbonwires. .
--One of the ribbonwires (the one the mounts the ribbon vertically) had loosened up.
--Use a tweezers to pop it back into place and that noise will disappear.

This is a design flaw, as the action of inserting/removing your ipod, coupled with the action of setting your sound dock down will work this ribbon loose.
