Question about Bose SoundDock® (Black) Docking Station for Apple iPod

1 Answer

I have a first gen. sounddock(white). before, we had to manipulate our ipods by tilting forward and backward to charged and listen to music. Now, it doesnt even do both since its loose. Obviously its the docking system itself thats broken. can i fix it myself or get help from other sources? Thank you!

Hi... Tery.....
Nice to see you.....
Since your mechanism has failed, therefore you must get it repaired from a service station....

Bose SoundDock will no longer connect to ipod to either play music or charge iphone/ipod devices. Any ideas how to fix or is connector on base damaged and needing repair?


My guess is that the iPod connector in the Sounddock is loose or damaged. You can get a new connector and solder it on yourself (very difficult!) or you could get a replacement PCB at http://www.chargeconverter.com/store/index.php?route=product/category&path=37 which is quite easy to replace (see http://ridax.wordpress.com for description).

While playing music simply stopped working. IPOD is fine, green light still on, but not functioning fixable? or need a new one?


Check if the iPod connector seems loose (try bending the iPod slightly and carefully forward/backward to see if it makes any difference). If it is, you can get a replacement board at http://www.chargeconverter.com/store/index.php?route=product/category&path=37

Charging


Some Pure-Fi's has a problem charging 2nd Gen Touch iPod, even when proper supplied adapter is used. You can try pressing the iPod further into the connector and see if it stays charging. If not, you can tilt the Touch slightly forward to make proper charging contact with Pure-Fi's iPod connector.

If you only charge your 2nd Gen Touch in your Pure-Fi, or other devices less thick than the Touch, like iPod Nanos, then you can stick a spacer on the Pure-Fi behind the Touch to always properly tilt it slightly forward. Only space it slightly forward just enough to cause it to charge so as not to stress the connector.

Stick-on chair/furniture protectors work good for this. If they are too thin, stick one on top the other till you get the thickness you need. Do not use any thicker a spacer than needed so as not to stress the connector any more than needed to make charging contact Use thinner stick-ons, like double sided foam tape, to get the final spacing you need.

The added advantage to a proper spacing between an iPod and Pure-Fi, is it relieves connector stress when plugging in and using an iPod while plugged in, since the taller Touch iPod cannot tilt backward. If you place your spacer at the very top of the Pure-if back panel, then iPods thicker, but shorter, than the height of your space can also be used.

Hope this helps everyone with this irritating Pure-Fi design problem.

To view the charging/not charging status on the 2nd Gen's screen, turn off the 2nd Gen and the Charging Icon will show when contact is being made.

Our sound dock does not charge our ipod touch 2nd gen. Bose manual says it does charge. The sound dock is not series 2. Are they not compatible? Thanks, Mark


The original SoundDock will not charge the iPod touch 2nd gen, or the iPhone 3G, or the new nano either. This is because Apple changed the way their new iPod products charge. (via USB only now)
There is 1 solution- Call Bose tech support. They can replace the 30 pin metal connector for a new one that will charge this. If this is not under warranty, it will cost $99, but it's worth it. New 1 year warranty, and compatibility with all iPods (except much older- non-clickwheel iPods)

Plastic shroud pulled out of docking station power port.


If the 4 input jacks on the back of the SoundDock seem to be okay, then just order a new power supply. If this is not the case, send it in for repair ($100) which upgrades the SoundDock to be able to use the newer iPods (iPod touch 2nd gen, new nano, iPhone 3G)
They give you a new 1 year warranty as well.

Bose docking statoin


They both use the same speakers, my personal opinion deems they are both the same. However the second SoundDock charges via USB pin, so it is future proof for future iPods.
