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

1 Answer

SoundDock produces only harsh crackling sound

My SoundDock produces only harsh crackling sound.
It started when i was searching for a track while my ipod was docked.
I think I may have had my little finger resting on the plus + volume because, when I tried to play all I got was a loud crackling sound.
Does this sound as though I've blown the speakers? Is there any any remedy short of replacing the whole thing (and disabling the volume control)?

Yeah i had that same problem. You know the chord? The cord you plug in from outlet. The square cord you plug into your speakers.. yeah the "DC outlet" is supposed to be UP. if you have it the wrong way in there it wont work and will make a crackling sound.

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 failure


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. Try the PSUif you can. The click is the PSU shorted that can be caused by a fault n the sound processor. Invebo will repair it for you too.

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.

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.
