Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I have a bose sounddock which when the aux cable is plugged in causes a buzzing sound which will not go away until I tense the wire to one particular side. I suspect that the metal connector inside the dock is twisted and not making full contact with the metal part of the aux cable. How do I fix it DIY?

The jack has most likely cracked a foil on the board it's mounted on . Get your solder iron scrape and solder and splice if needed it back on the board. Pretty easy one here. email me for more questions. Larry's Electronics ledstiles@hotmail.com

Bose SoundDock got wet


No! the Bose unit would need to be serviced by them, there are no authorized technicians outside of the factory, plus they have the needed parts.

I have no radio siegnel from my ipod nano in my bose sound dock


The ipod headphone cord acts as an antenna, and with the design of the nano you can't plug them into the ipod and the docking station at the same time. You can buy an audio adapter cable - a 3.5mm to 3.5mm one; just plug one end into your ipod and the other end into the aux port on the back of your dock. You can then use the radio, as the cable will act as the antenna. I got one on ebay - the cable has plugs on each end which are the same size as your ipod headphone plug. You can also get them in variety stores or electrical stores.

Bose sound dock doesn't work at all


If this is the original SoundDock, the power supply in back is 4 pronged and a pin could be broken. If it makes a quiet thumping sound, then just make sure the power supply is not plugged in upside down (it's easy enough to do).
If this is the SoundDock II or the SoundDock portable, it's hard to say why this would happen, so you should call Bose on that one. There should be an indicator light that tells you when it has power..

When i plug in my sound docking station it makes a knocking sound


The only 2 possibilities are: 1. The power supply IS bad and needs to be replaced. (not the cord, but the supply itself) 2. The 4-prong power supply plug at the back of the SoundDock isn't connecting properly (try flipping it upside down, or making sure "DC power" is written on top if it's a later version.)
If this is the SoundDock Portable or SoundDock II, then the problem is definitely the supply.
Bose can send a new supply for $50+, or repair a non-warrantied SoundDock for $99.

Bose ipod speakers not working just no sound it is powering up


Hello,

Try the fallowing

First things first, unplug the SoundDock. Plug it back in and try again. Then take the Dock insert out....and try it again. If that doesnt work check the power cable. A common problem is that people plug it in the wrong way into the Bose SoundDock. If that still doesnt fix your problem. Bring the product to your nearest bose store if its still in warranty. If not, call 1(800)644-2673.


Hope this helped please rate.

No sound from Bose SoundDock


I had this problem on my SoundDock. My iPod would charge on the dock just fine and when I played my iPod on the dock, it would look like it was playing, but have no sound. Since my Bose was out of warranty, this is what I did to fix it. #1 Unplug the adapter. #2 Unscrew the four large screws on the bottom of the speaker and the three small screws under the dock. #3 You'll see one long ribbon connection and one very short one. Check to see if the ribbon connector coming from the front of the speaker system came loose from the green board. You'll only be able to see 1/2 an inch of it sticking out, and it's not easy to plug it back in, but it's possible. Just take your time. #4 Carefully put everything back together being very careful not to let the ribbon fall out of the plug again. #5 Make sure to plug in the DC adapter the correct way. There's a very subtle difference, but there is a difference. There are four prongs - two are square and two have slightly rounded corners. If it's not plugged in the correct way, the dock will have a static clicking sound. On my adapter, the words "DC power" are on the top of the plug.
