Question about Bose SoundDock iPod Digital Music system (Black) with Monster iCarplay Wireless Plus Bundle (SOUNDDOCKICARPLAY) Docking Station

1 Answer

My Ipod will not play music when inserted into my Bose Sound Dock. The Ipod does play with earphones. While inserted in the Bose, the Ipod screen shows that it is apparently playing but there is no sound. I've put volume on the Ipod to the max. I've pushed the + volume button the Bose to the max. I've tried all of the troubleshooting steps in the Bose manual. Any suggestions besides return the unit to Bose?

    The Bose Sound Dock has only one input. The suggestion is not relevant.
    Be that as it may, it developed that the problem was in the electric socket, not the Sound Dock or the IPod. The Ipod is now happy.
    However, your expert opined, and I assume I owe.

If the Bose system has another kinda input that you use with another devices...and with this one you tried an 3.5 jack input...that one may be for another purpose ...So make a cable and use a normal jack for the Ipod output ...and use another input in the system ...The issue may be some kinda pre amplification needed for the entry you use..For example it mast have a 2 rca cable input like any normal system for a stereo input (or single rca) so ..either use an adapter or make a cable by adding joining an old rca on a 3.5 jack ..
If the Ipod have output signal and the system works it have to work this way ..
Or take a look into the system menu and see if you have to select the input you use ...

Bose Sound Dock remote control - only volume works


My remote worked perfectly until I changed the battery. The original battery was CL 2032 and I replaced it with DL 2032. After replacing the battery, only the volume control works. The off button will only fade the sound while the button is depressed. Release the button, and the volume returns to the original level and the unit remains On.
None of the other buttons work.
If you've found a solution, please post it here.

Bose sound dock - no sound comes through it but my ipod works with the ear plugs so it's not my ipod


I had this problem for the pat two days. Believe it or not I took my Ipod touch of the dock. Shut the power off to the Ipod to reset it. Also the power to the docking station. turned everything back on. Put the Ipod back into the docking station and heard the beep.. and hit play and it was working again. Not sure but shutting Ipod off does act like a reset.

Bose Ipod docking station not working!


Make sure the power supply is connected properly. If the power supply is connected upside down or sideways, the system will make a thumping noise, or will not play at all. However, no damage will be caused by connecting this wire incorrectly.

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.

Reset your Ipod. Go online to troubleshoot your ipod. I had the same problem and resetting the ipod fixed it.

No sound


Try other iPods, if they give you sound it's a problem with your iPod, if not then check to make sure you are using the right plate by removing the insert and try the iPod without it. Otherwise contact Bose.

Bose Sounddock problem


I had the same issue, it just stopped working today for no reason. Since it's out of Warranty and Bose charges too much to fix it, I took the bottom off, cleaned all the contacts, applied some dialectric silicone compound to the contacts, put it back together... and it works great!
