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.

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

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 got splashed and the ipod is ok, but the sounddock played for one second and stopped and now it just makes a loud pop every so often if plugged in.


once water gets into an electrical device like that, it's only a matter of seconds before it conducts electricity from one circuit element to another where there isnt supposed to be a connection. Once this happens, your dock is toast. Unless you want to open it up and replace whatever was fried. Sorry buddy

I get a static ticking sound when plug in my sound dock


I noticed a ticking sound when I pushed the mains connecting plug into the Sounddock. It turned out the plug was upside down! It shouldn't be possible to insert it this way but it is.

When i plug in my sound docking station it makes a knocking sound


The only 2 possibilities are: 1. The power supply IS bad and needs to be replaced. (not the cord, but the supply itself) 2. The 4-prong power supply plug at the back of the SoundDock isn't connecting properly (try flipping it upside down, or making sure "DC power" is written on top if it's a later version.)
If this is the SoundDock Portable or SoundDock II, then the problem is definitely the supply.
Bose can send a new supply for $50+, or repair a non-warrantied SoundDock for $99.

Bose sound dock


Had the same problem, worked just to rotate the power cable into the back of the sound dock. Printing on the plug goes on top. It worked like a gem, after trying new batteries, resetting, etc...it was just an incorrectly placed plug!! Thanks for the help!! Listening now to some great music!

SoundDock produces only harsh crackling sound


Yeah i had that same problem. You know the chord? The cord you plug in from outlet. The square cord you plug into your speakers.. yeah the "DC outlet" is supposed to be UP. if you have it the wrong way in there it wont work and will make a crackling sound.
