Question about Bose SoundDock digital music system Docking Station for iPod - White (35703)

1 Answer

Power Pack Plug-In

I unplugged the power pack from the back of the docking station for transport purposes. I was then unable to get sound when I plugged the four prong plug into the unit. There was even a small amount of smoke emitting from the four prong socket. I changed wall outlets and the device worked fine. However, I am concerned about the is matter. Thanks for any assistance.

    The 4 pronged plug at the back of the sound dock for the power cord is too fragile for the application - mine has basically fallen apart. I'm looking for a replacement that is more robust.

The instruction manual asks for the arrow on the power lead to be at the top. Unfortunately not all of the leads are marked with an arrow but some have DC where the arrow should be. It is possible to put the plug in upside down so please inspect the plug and socket for two very small chamfers on both the plug prongs and the socket and line them up. This is the first step, however even with the lead fitted correctly some units still only work intermittently. Leaving it unplugged for 2 mins resets the unit. This works sometimes. I think Bose need to address this problem with an update or product recall. regards pcs

How can i update dell dock?


A docking station is an extension or addition of ports for a laptop computer. Once the portable computer is docked, you can access the docking station's ports, such as PS/2 or USB 2.0 ports, through your computer. Some docking stations have monitors that you can connect your computer to, placing your video on an external screen so you can turn off your computer's monitor and conserve some of your computer's energy. All Dell docking stations will have the same general troubleshooting steps.

Plug your laptop's power adapter into the docking station and dock your laptop onto/into the docking station. If there is no power going to your laptop from the docking station but it works when the power adapter is plugged into the wall, the docking station is bad and needs to be replaced. Plug your power adapter into the docking station and dock your laptop onto/into the docking station. If power goes on but your computer doesn't recognizes accessories such as a USB mouse--plugged into the docking station, try a different port on the station. If it works in a different port, the previous USB port is burned out. Plug your power adapter into the docking station and dock your laptop onto/into the docking station. If power is going through the docking station but no accessories are being recognized, you might have a corrupted docking profile. Undock the computer and dock it again once it has fully started up to reset the docking profile. Plug your power adapter into the docking station and dock your laptop onto/into the docking station. If you have an external monitor and it is not working, completely close the lid on the laptop so the image will move to the external monitor. Plug your power adapter into the docking station and dock your laptop onto/into the docking station. If power is going through the docking station but no accessories are being recognized and resetting the docking profile fails, update all drivers through Dell's support website and then re-dock the computer. Some of the software that runs the hardware may have become corrupted. Hope this helps

I don't have repair for defect timer, except return to Home Depot and exchange for another.
Try unplugging timer to see if will reset. There is no specific reset button on timer.
Test outlet with circuit analyzer to confirm there are no electrical problems.

The label shows advisories: Don't use extension cord, unplug unit when working on bulbs, and plug unit into GFCI protected outlet to protect from surge and short.

Other advisories not shown: Unplug power pack if breaker trips or if power goes out. Wait until power is on before plugging back in. First bulb should be 10 feet from unit. Do not wrap extra cord around power pack. Match bulb wattage and power pack wattage: 200 watt power pack should have 200 watts and not more or less. Replace bulbs as soon as they burn out.
These advisories should not affect initial operation of timer, but are things that shorten life of power packs,

My kids were playing the Wii & the power went out. Now I cant get it to come back on. Any ideas?


hi the only real thing you can try yourself is resetting the power pack, to do this you need to unplug it from the mains and also unplug it from the wii, leave both ends unplugged for at least 5 minutes, doing this activates the reset procedure inside the power pack, then plug it back in and give it a try.

if it still dont work then the chances are you need to replace the power pack, the chance is the power pack got fried and not the wii as the wii only needs 12volts from the power pack so this shouldnt cause any harm as the power pack reduces the power down to 12v so if it wont work try replacing the power pack or try using a friends power pack just to test it with.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

please rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

My malibu landscape 300w transformer does not want to come on


Check that power pack is getting electricity.
Power pack should make a small humming sound when on.
Scratch a wire across both terminal screws and see if there is spark.
If a bulb burns out, and is not replaced, additional voltage can burn out other bulbs.
Power pack should be unplugged if bulbs are not burning since that can burn out power pack.
Change out a couple bulbs and then plug-in power pack.
Check connections where lights tie into wire.

My power pack was doing same thing, I bought another power pack from Home Depot to check my lights. All but 2 bulbs were burned out. I replaced bulbs and returned new power pack.. and then power pack quit for good a month later.

I found tips to preserve power packs:
1) Match wattage of bulbs with wattage of power pack
-15 each X 20 watt bulbs = 300 watts, so install 300Watt power pack
2) Installing a 500W power pack on 300W of bulbs will burn out bulbs and power pack.
3) Replace bulbs as soon as they burn out or other bulbs will burn out and power pack will burn out.
4) When working on bulbs, unplug power pack or it may burn out.

Bose Sound Dock remote control - only volume works


My remote worked perfectly until I changed the battery. The original battery was CL 2032 and I replaced it with DL 2032. After replacing the battery, only the volume control works. The off button will only fade the sound while the button is depressed. Release the button, and the volume returns to the original level and the unit remains On.
None of the other buttons work.
If you've found a solution, please post it here.

Dell D610: Does not charge w/ any a-c adapter/battery pack.


This seems to be a shot in the charging circuit of the motherboard. If in warranty call Dell hardware supoprt and they will do the needful in warranty. If the warranty is out try a local technician and maybe they can repair the board.

Power jack connection broken on HP Omnibook xe3


I bought a docking station (port replicator) off ebay, and it has worked great. I had a look at the motherboard, and the docking station uses a different connection for power than the damaged AC port. So in summary, yes a docking port should solve your problem.

If you can get a docking station for it you may be able to solve it that way.

I had the same problem but with a different TEAC docking product.
My TEAC would not recognize my ipod therefore I was unable to control my ipod via the docking station remote control.
Plug your ipod into the docking station and power down (reboot) your ipod. Once the ipod powers down (in the dock) restart the ipod (yes, while in the dock).
