Question about Bose SoundDock Digital Music System for Apple iPod - White

Open Question

Ipod does not seem to connect with the Bose sound dock base.

When placed on the sound-dock base, my classic ipod leans backwards toward the Bose unit. For a while, I could sneak small items, like the ipod cover, behind it. This would push it into more of a horizontal position, and if I prayed hard, and tip-toed away from the unit, it would usually make a connectuib. But that no longer works.
This is my pride and joy. I have over two thousand songs. The ipod plays on my daughter's cheaper speakers. Is there a new sound dock base insert that I could put in my Bose, or what would you suggest? Send the whole thing in? The Bose system is only 18 months old. The Ipod is 3 years old.
Thank you very much for any advice.

It may be expensive to have someone replace the connector. One option is to squirt some silicone around the base, being careful to still allow contact to be made to the iPod dock connector. You could get a dock extension cable (see link below). It may fit better and will reduce the strain on the Bose connector. If it's still loose, you could glue the extender cable in.

Alternatively, you could use a 3.5 mm audio cable to connect the iPod headphone jack to the Aux-in jack on the back of the Bose. Just living with it may be prudent.

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.

Bose SoundDock burned out two of my iPods - a Nano and a classic.


um ur sounddock might require that u place the white docking piece that came with ur ipod to be place b4 the ipod is docked if not u may ruin the dock and the ipod usb port this is done because different generation ipods(nana and touch and ...) have different shapes so the entrance for docks may require to be eleveated or reduce in gradient basically if the dock isnt made for the specific ipod or u dont know just put the white piece in

New ipod nano not compatable with bose docking


This is true. The new iPod nano is not compatible with the original SoundDock. This only means that it won't charge the iPod's power. Audio should be okay. This is an Apple issue. They changed the way almost all of their iPods charge (except the iPod classic). Bose can upgrade the SoundDock for their normal repair fee of $99. This would also you a new 1 year warranty.
