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.

If your 3rd Gen Nano is good then it sounds as though your docking connector may be faulty. To fit a new connector is easy and you can buy a kit or an upgrade from www.invebo.com at no risk. If it doesn't fix the problem then just send it back. They also sell on eBay. I have fixed a bunch of docks using their parts. The BC6 Bluetooth upgrade is amazing.

Bose sounddock not giving any sound. Ipod working fine through earplugs. Unhooked soundock for travel, now no sound. Tried all the resets, etc. Also, new battery in remote and it doesn't respond either????


You probably have a broken docking connector or bad power supply. Contact www.invebo.com to get a replacement board. It takes minutes to fit. They also sell the USB charge upgrade to enable you dock to charge the IPHONE on the Soundock original.

Will a dead battery in a Ipod play in a bose soundock?


Well with a dead battery it is always best to get it replaced. However, your docking station, or a wall charger, or computer, should all power on the ipod..
If you are interested in purchasing a new battery for your ipod, I would suggest going to the website listed below to do so. It is fairly affordable. Around 45.99

Bose Sounddock problem


I had the same issue, it just stopped working today for no reason. Since it's out of Warranty and Bose charges too much to fix it, I took the bottom off, cleaned all the contacts, applied some dialectric silicone compound to the contacts, put it back together... and it works great!

Gen 3 nano and bose docking station


Have you tried another iPod on it?? I suspect that if you do, that one won't work either. If it's a Bose SoundDock then they are well known for having problems with the iPod connector getting loose. Try with another iPod. If results are the same, take your SoundDock back. Bose should exchange it straight away.

Ipod lights up then goes out, then lights up again and repeats this cycle, no logo seen.


Try resetting it by holding down the menu button and the center button at the same time until the apple logo pops up. It could also be a problem that I had before where you update the firmware and then it starts acting wierd. What you need to do is try and load it into a soundock like bose or logitech and it helps to reset the ipod. Hope this helps you out.
