Pleae do not use it further, since we fear that there is water trapped inside yo could have damged the device by powering as the water will create a short circuit with the allied circuits. If this is in the sensitive part section then you wont be lucky. so open up, use a good hair dryer to slowly warm for 5-10 minutes, repeat the same for some times, reassembly and test. hope this works out. helpful? Good day

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.

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.

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).

Bose Sounddock won't play iPod touch


You probably have a broken docking connector or bad power supply. Contact www.invebo.com to get a replacement board. It takes minutes to fit. They also sell the USB charge upgrade to enable you dock to charge the IPHONE on the Soundock original.

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.

Does the new bose dock station charge the new ipod touch (32g)?


The new SoundDock II charges your new iPod touch and is fully compatible all iPods and the iPhone 3G. Also the SoundDock Portable will do this. But..
Better news-> Call Bose. They can upgrade the 30-pin connector to charge via USB-only and function with the remote as well. $99. This will make your iPod touch 100% compatible and somewhat future-proof your SoundDock. If the SoundDock was purchased within 90 days (at full retail price), they will do the upgrade for a smaller fee or even free I think.. (new 1 year warranty given with repair/mod) btw- This is an Apple issue, not a Bose issue. All 3rd party iPod connection devices had to make this change at some point.

Won't charge on Bose SoundDock


You're not doing anything wrong. Newer iPods and the iPhone require accessories that were specifically designed for them. For example, the iPod interface in my car will not charge my iPhone, however, I can still play music through it.

The only solution is to: 1: Buy a SoundDock II or 2: Charge your ipod seperately.
