SOURCE: Bose Control Pod won't work
Try changing the plug on the control pod, those plugs are fairly weak and prone to breakage. Does there appear to be any strain at all on the plug itself? if so then that is where I would start. If you have a series 2 then I can help you, or if you can find out if the 2 control pods are the same, that would be fine too, but I have a series 2 system companion 3 and if needed I will cut my cable to trace the wiring and then replace your plug for you. my cost for this would be $40, that includes return shipping with priority mail.

you have to call customer service at 1-800-367-4008.Run about $35.
For the broken cable, have you tried to fabricate a new cable for it?

check if the volume control needs to be replaced. volume controls gets bad in due time coz of the carbon layer which gets thinner and thinner till it gets cut off

I had the same problem right out of the gate, the volume dial on my control pod for my Companion 5 wasn't working, however, the touch pad and LED worked. I called Bose customer service and was instructed to:
First, unplug the power directly at the back of the woofer while the unit was on;
Next, I was instructed to unplug the control pod, visually inspect for any damage/defect;
Finally, re-seat the control pod on the back of the woofer and then lastly plug the power cable back into the woofer.
It worked like a charm. I hope this is helpful!

I just fixed this exact problem. There is only 1-2 volts feeding the preamp IC's pin 4 JRC 2059. Positive side of C313 should be 12v(B+ to IC's) found shorted transistor just above C313. Collector goes to V+ 15v from power supply, Emitter feeds the preamp IC's. I used a 2sc3904 (NTE123Ap) unit back up and running
