SOURCE: Bose SoundDock will no longer

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).

SOURCE: Bose sounddock no longer playing music

The problem is with all those little electrolytic capacitors. They look like little cans. There on the middle board. What happens is they dry out just like batteries. I fixed one for like 7 dollars plus shipping from Digikey. If you want you can use an ESR meter to check them, but don't bother. The Circuit board is the middle board. Not the board that has the connector that the ipod plugs into, or the board the speakers plug into, its the one in the middle of the two. Yes you can charge your ipod but it won't play music. Also check all the pins on the connector that the ipod plugs into, sometimes the solder joint breaks and needs to be soldered.

Sony ICF-DS11iP doesn't play my Ipod touch. Radio, Alarm, Ipod Charging functions work. Pls suggest a solution


Please check the iPod connector on the Sony. If you can wiggle it, it is probably a bad connection. These models Sony radios have the connector directly soldered on a PCB and it tends to get loose after a while due to connecting/disconnecting the iPod. If it is loose, the connector needs to be resoldered back into place.

I have had the following circumstances when there was a bad connection:
- iPod will not be charged
- iPod can not play music through the Sony
- iPod will play music through the Sony, but an iPhone won't

My iphone4 will no longer play music in my s715i. I have 2 gigaware boxes it will still play in just not the logitech. Says not supported. Played great for first six months, I know it is an iphone...


Hi harkirj,

There's an ongoing compatibility issue with Logitech s715i and iphone/ipod. If you're using iphone 4 with iOS 4.3 you will be encountering no sound or unit won't play at all. It only works for iOS 4.2. You can use a 3.5 mm jack, connect it to the top of the iphone to the back of the player and it will work. However, you will lose all functionality of the remote, battery etc.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

My ip9 ihome will play music from my ipod touch but it will not charge it. What can I do to fix it?


there is no way to charge it and play it at the same time, unfortunately, iPod touch is not supported for that format, only the latest nano and below.

The iPod dock appears to be loose after someone pulled an iPod off too vigourously, so the speakers no longer play, is this repairable?


if you are honest report it to b and w service and they will possible charge you. if you are not, report that the red light is flashing ( & not playing anything), and they will fix it and find that the arm is faulty and hopefully fix it.

Ipod will play on tunebase fm but it won't charge it


There are issues with newer ipods not being 100%compatible with all devices. It is done intentionally by Apple to maximize their profits. For example, an FM transmitter charges and plays on one Ipod, but then a newer ipod will play with the FM transmitter, but the ipod display shows that it is incompatible and will not charge. Same issues with a docking station and a radio. All worked with three other ipods, but the newer ones either won't work or charge depending on the device. Even though ipods play with certain devices they may not charge them and vice versa. Thank Apple for that. I hope this helps and good luck!

IMode IP215 Won't Charge iPod 4th Generation


It's because it charges via FireWire and your iPod charges via USB. This 12V vs. 5V. I've encountered this twice recently myself. Scosche makes an adapter that's sold through the Apple Store.
