Bose Sounddock Volume Control Problems

Recently I accidentally got a small amount of water on my Bose Sounddock and my i-Pod. I let my i-Pod and Sounddock dry out for at least 4 hours. My i-Pod is fine now but when I connect it with my Sounddock, the volume control is not normal. For example if I want to lower it, I can't hear anything but if I increase the volume then it goes to almost maximum and it seems to be unable to achieve any volume level in between. Any help? :(

Well, there really was nothing to it.
I let it dry out for the rest of the day and it went back to normal, thankfully.

Where do I get my SoundDock fixed?

It could also be that the volume button has gotten stuck, misaligned and it needs to be seated back into the the right spot. If you feel comfortable in removing the bottom of the Dock connector held on by three screws, you could look and see if the volume button is stuck or maybe a little crooked. I don't believe that this is caused by a bad circuit board. If you have experienced any problems with the docking of iDevice, I would check out and make sure to type in the www. For some reason it will not navigate to the website if omitted. They are an awesome company for Bose SoundDock DIY repairs or have them repair it for you. Check out the Bluetooth upgrade, if you have an iPod Touch or any device with Bluetooth, you don't have to dock the device anymore. So you have more control of what you're listening to. Anyway, I bet it's just the volume up button that is stuck, or something is stuck in the volume up bottom on the right side of dock connector. If that is not the case then INVEBO is the least expensive repair route, under 50 bucks., Bose will do an upgrade, switch out program, running you a total of around $164.00. You send them your unit, they send you a box for the return, then they send out a new unit.

Bose sounddock remote and ipod menu functions

Unfortunately I've never seen a universal remote that will control the extra functions of this. If it's the original SoundDock, you can only do: volume, power, play/pause, skip/scan. If this is a SoundDock II or SoundDock Portable, you can only control: volume, power, play/pause, skip/scan, and playlist up/ playlist down. Quite honestly, that's all I need to do on my SoundDock. I can't really read what's on my iPod from where I'm sitting in the first place. It may be possible to use a universal learning remote for this, but you'd have to teach commands from an apple remote as well as the bose remote, and the learning remote (+apple remote) may cost you over 1/3 the cost of the SoundDock. It also may not work perfectly. I hope this helps somewhat.
