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

Hey, I have hardly used my sound dock and yesterday I tried it. The iPod starts up ok but does not charge or play unless I take out the adapter piece and push down on the iPod.

I have tried on the Bose site to find a service store I can send it to for repairs. Have you heard this problem before?

Thanks,
Scott

    My sound dock doesn't makes my iPod sound, and this is the second iPod that I got just to find that the problem that made me bought the second one doesn't came from my iPod. Does anyone knows the answer for that kind of problem?

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.

Perhaps the Invebo boards do something extra, but they'd need to do a lot extra to justify a price of GBP59 when you can get a replacement original board from Bose Parts Dept for GBP17 including shipping.

I pod charges, plays, but no sound


Easy, I had this problem too. The reason it isn't playing is because its not in all the way. I was getting very frustrated with this, so I kept trying to push it onto the dock to get it all the way down.
Solution:
1. Play a song on your ipod/iphone so you can hear it through the device.
2. Connect your ipod/iphone to the docking station(Bose) so that you hear the chime(This lets you know its charging).
3. Pick up the docking station and firmly press the ipod/iphone down on the connector.
4. Keep pressing it and wiggling around until you hear the music begin to play through the docking station.
It may take a few tries, but you will get it.
Hope this helped!

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.

No sound from Bose SoundDock


I had this problem on my SoundDock. My iPod would charge on the dock just fine and when I played my iPod on the dock, it would look like it was playing, but have no sound. Since my Bose was out of warranty, this is what I did to fix it. #1 Unplug the adapter. #2 Unscrew the four large screws on the bottom of the speaker and the three small screws under the dock. #3 You'll see one long ribbon connection and one very short one. Check to see if the ribbon connector coming from the front of the speaker system came loose from the green board. You'll only be able to see 1/2 an inch of it sticking out, and it's not easy to plug it back in, but it's possible. Just take your time. #4 Carefully put everything back together being very careful not to let the ribbon fall out of the plug again. #5 Make sure to plug in the DC adapter the correct way. There's a very subtle difference, but there is a difference. There are four prongs - two are square and two have slightly rounded corners. If it's not plugged in the correct way, the dock will have a static clicking sound. On my adapter, the words "DC power" are on the top of the plug.

Bose IPod Docking Station Remote not working


I had the same problem. Very frustrating. Tried everything. Discovered the solution. The device that the remote control sends a signal to is located inside the grill of the SoundDock. The receiving device has a lens (which we can't see since it is hidden inside the grill). It can get dust on it that interferes in the signal being received and the remote can then only adjust the volume up and down but no other feature. I sprayed my grill with a can of air. Not being sure exactly where the device is, I sprayed the entire grill, being careful to spray from six inches or so from the grill. Just like that - the remote then was immediaely fully functional and I have ever since been able to use all of the remote's functions. Steve

They both use the same speakers, my personal opinion deems they are both the same. However the second SoundDock charges via USB pin, so it is future proof for future iPods.

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!
