It may be expensive to have someone replace the connector. One option is to squirt some silicone around the base, being careful to still allow contact to be made to the iPod dock connector. You could get a dock extension cable (see link below). It may fit better and will reduce the strain on the Bose connector. If it's still loose, you could glue the extender cable in.

Alternatively, you could use a 3.5 mm audio cable to connect the iPod headphone jack to the Aux-in jack on the back of the Bose. Just living with it may be prudent.

Ipod classic 80GB makes a horrible popping noise with sounddock II


Sounds like there might be a loose connection between your iPod and the dock. Firstly make sure there is no dust or grit inside the female 30 pin of the iPod. Also make sure that there is no grit or dust around the male end on the dock. If there is grit or dust (or even if there isn't, some compressed air (you can buy this in a can) will help to clean out the connection. Also make sure that when you dock the iPod, it is seated on the dock properly. You should be able to see if it isn't seating properly. If this doesn't fix it and you are near an apple store, I would recommend taking the problem to them where they will be able to make sure that the iPod isn't causing the problem.

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

I just bought the ipod nano 6th generation and it will not charge in the Bose docking system....my old one charges with no problem.....is there a fix for this? The nano plays fine it just wont charge


If it is a different model iPod then it is likely the Bose dock does not support the newer model. Quite often changes such as from iPhone 3 to iPhone 4, Bose had to release a new dock. The speakers and music will still always work, but the support will be limited for charging. Unfortunately you will not be able to fix this, other than upgrade the dock, or go back to your old ipod.

System won't recognize the Ipod, battery ok.


First, grab your friend or family members ipod and see if it works. If it does, then your problem is your ipod.
You'll probably end up needing to restore the ipod. connect your ipod to the computer and click restore. It's a major pain to have to do this I know, just because it takes forever. You wont loose any music or other data if you sync and transfer purchases first, but it fixes most problems.
If the different ipod doesn't work, then it's the sounddocks problem and you should return it. If for whatever reason you can't return it, there are ways to hack the sounddock so that it will take an auxiliry plug instead of the dock. Here's the simplest one I found, but there's a bunch of articles on it if you look.

Sounddock 1 :No sound unless I push down on the iPod


Turn the sound dock over and you will see the connection for the iPod is on a separate piece of plastic, almost looks like it has been bolted onto the main bit. It means a connection will be loose between these two parts in some way. Contact Bose to get this serviced.
