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

1 Answer

I can't get open the remote.

We bought this ages ago and though my iPod is charging on it, I cannot get the speakers to work and I can't even open the remote to change the battery. Do I NEED the remote just to get music to play, because it's not playing, even if I see from my iPod's screen that a song IS being played.

Thanks. We bought this a few years ago and it's NEVER worked.

Disconnect all cables and pull plug out from the wall and then reconnect. This worked for us here.

I just bought the ipod nano 6th generation and it will not charge in the Bose docking system....my old one charges with no problem.....is there a fix for this? The nano plays fine it just wont charge


If it is a different model iPod then it is likely the Bose dock does not support the newer model. Quite often changes such as from iPhone 3 to iPhone 4, Bose had to release a new dock. The speakers and music will still always work, but the support will be limited for charging. Unfortunately you will not be able to fix this, other than upgrade the dock, or go back to your old ipod.

The speakers on my Griffin Evolve wireless speaker system will not work. However, when I transfer them to a second identical system and base, using the same iPod they do work. It seems as though the base...


Well, you did the right thing by verifying that the speakers are not the problem (they work in an identical system). Try connecting a different iPod, just to rule out that being a problem. Some of these docks need an adapter for some versions of the iPod... check to make sure you have the right one. Otherwise, if the base is defective, maybe you can get a replacement from Griffin. Contact their technical support staff. Good luck.

I am thinking of getting and Ipod touch 3G. I have JBL on stage micro Speakers. I've charged a Ipod touch 2G, but I want a 3G! Please Help!


When the OnStage speakers first came out, the charger was not compatible with 3g iPods or iPhones. Newer speakers have an upgraded charger and will charge all current iPods/iPhones (up to and including iPhone 3Gs)

Bad news is that there's no way to upgrade an old OnStage.

You can test yours by trying an iPhone 3G (if you have a friend with one, for example) to see if you have the old or the new charging circuit.

JBL on stage micro will not charge my ipod any more. It plays songs fine from the ipod but for some reason is not charging it. Any suggestions?


The JBL Onstage Micro is supposed to disable recharging of the iPod when running off AAA batteries to avoid draining them, but sometimes this setting gets stuck even when the unit is plugged in through the AC adaptor. The workaround that I found is pulling out and reconnecting the iPod to the Onstage Micro (while both are powered on) and then unplugging and reconnecting the AC adaptor. Sometimes you have to repeat this process, but the iPod should start recharging after that. I tried it on the new 5th generation nano and this seems to work.

Nano 8gb does not charge battery(3th generation)


the ipod of the 4th generation does only charge in USB mode and the Harman & kardon speaker only supports I link charge mode(fire wire 1394) so i bought an awsome sounding machine wich does not charge my ipod nano.
however i must say that i have a solution, when you put the USB cable in the back of the H&K, you can charge the nano with a charging device of an ipod.

JBL on stage II speaker doesn't work


If your 120v unit is not marked for use with 220-240v and you plugged it into such a socket (even once), you probably fried the AC adapter and will need to get a replacement.

Griffin evolve remote not functioning


how did you take off the back to put in new batteries... try syncing your speakers by holding the 2 volume buttons on the base at the same time for about 2 secs.... the light will start to blink and you just click any button on your remote. If that doesnt work then its firmware
