Question about Cyber Acoustics Audio Players & Recorders
Not particularly a problem in and of itself, but rather asking a general question about the design of the control pod. It was recommended elsewhere about 3 years ago that an issue with my speakers may be caused by build up in the control hub for my volume. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to disassemble it to clean it. If someone would be so kind as to instruct me how, it'd be appreciated.

SOURCE: Bose Control Pod won't work
Try changing the plug on the control pod, those plugs are fairly weak and prone to breakage. Does there appear to be any strain at all on the plug itself? if so then that is where I would start. If you have a series 2 then I can help you, or if you can find out if the 2 control pods are the same, that would be fine too, but I have a series 2 system companion 3 and if needed I will cut my cable to trace the wiring and then replace your plug for you. my cost for this would be $40, that includes return shipping with priority mail.

I had exact same problem today. I moved my speakers from one room to the next. When I plugged everything back, the mute/unmute worked but the volume control no longer worked.
I got it working now!! I powered down my computer and then unplugged the power to the speaker system. Then plugged in the power to the speaker system again. Powered on computer and all is good again!!
Hope this helps/

I had the same problem right out of the gate, the volume dial on my control pod for my Companion 5 wasn't working, however, the touch pad and LED worked. I called Bose customer service and was instructed to:
First, unplug the power directly at the back of the woofer while the unit was on;
Next, I was instructed to unplug the control pod, visually inspect for any damage/defect;
Finally, re-seat the control pod on the back of the woofer and then lastly plug the power cable back into the woofer.
It worked like a charm. I hope this is helpful!
