    yeah - plates all seem the same A and B, sits in both - charges in neither.

    Know the classic 120 gb charges in the cradle on the bose sounddock - saw it doing so in the shop.

    What is going on?

    Yeah, thanks Mr. Obvious. That was partially the point of purchasing such a pricey piece of junk... you know, like killing two birds with one stone. Hence the whole idea of a "docking/charging station!"

A low-cost option to fix teh charging issue is buy and fit the charge upgrade board from Invebo. They do several versions for the Bose Sounddock Original. I fitted one with the innexxis BC6 charge and Bluetooth upgrade with the later tougher docking connector. (A new docking connector is fitted when you fit the upgrade) There is a great instruction video and it took about five minutes to fit. Sounds great - bought my dock bang up to date with wireless streaming.

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.

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.

Does the new bose dock station charge the new ipod touch (32g)?


The new SoundDock II charges your new iPod touch and is fully compatible all iPods and the iPhone 3G. Also the SoundDock Portable will do this. But..
Better news-> Call Bose. They can upgrade the 30-pin connector to charge via USB-only and function with the remote as well. $99. This will make your iPod touch 100% compatible and somewhat future-proof your SoundDock. If the SoundDock was purchased within 90 days (at full retail price), they will do the upgrade for a smaller fee or even free I think.. (new 1 year warranty given with repair/mod) btw- This is an Apple issue, not a Bose issue. All 3rd party iPod connection devices had to make this change at some point.

I have an ipod touch 8G I purchased a Bose soundock II. The sound is great but the remote only controls the volume. I cannot change tracks, move through playlists and when I hit the off button on the Bose...


Bothe the docking station and the remote are useless I recommend you buy a universal remote control.For the Ipod switching off-it does'nt switch off reason being it has it's own battery and does not depend on the electrical power of the docking station.

Remote won't control my 4th generation ipod nano


Hey I figured it out. When you bought the 4th generation ipod nano it came with it's own dock insert. It fits perfectly and fixes everything, including the remote issues. Now my only problem is I have a black ihome and a white insert :( Good luck!

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!
