Question about Bose SoundDock digital music system Docking Station for iPod - White (35703)
I did just change the battery, thinking that would solve the problem, but still NOTHING . . . Any ideas?
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

To expand on lskhn's solution. If the light is not coming on and the battery has alread been changed it may be the connection. I fixed mine by folding aluminum foil three thicknesses and slid the battery in on top making a better connection to the lead that goes to the flat of the battery. I was able to hold the foil in the right distance with excess and then removed the excess once the battery sled was in place.

Have you tried another Ipod in the dock? I tried another Ipod and everything worked perfectly, seems like it is an Ipod issue and not a Sounddock issue on mine

Found the same problem and worked out the ipod wasn't in the cradle properly, it was playing sound but no control from the remote (RWD, FFD etc) just wiggled it in the cradle a bit and it works fine now..

I popped the grill off after using a hair dryer on cool didn't do the trick and cleaned the sensor(surrounded by black foam material) with Vodka. Works like it's supposed to now.
