How do you connect the sandisk to a bose radio?


Hi, Does the radio have any connections on the back. Perferably RCA or a mini jack
Now you still need a patch cord one with your Ipod jack on and an rca connection on the other which you can get at any electroic stores (radio shack or audio/ video stores). GOOD LUCK.

No sound


To answer this one, we'll need a lot more information. The following

1. Verify your cable. There's no way to post a picture so we'll try this in text. Looking at the 5-pin DIN (called P1) with the pins to the top, number them 1 through 5 from left to right (regardless of how they may be numbered on a connector as it is unmarked on the cable). Looking at the 8-pin mini DIN (called P2) with the key at the top, number the top row 1 through 3 (left to right in all cases), the middle row 4 through 6 (pin 6 will be the one separated by a gap from the other two), number the bottom row 7 and 8.

Now, make sure that continuity exists. This is how my cable was wired as follows: P1-1 to P2-7, P1-2 to P2-8, P1-3 and P1-4 to P2-6, P1-5 to P2-1. If you do not show that each wire is good, then you either have a damaged cable or audio is not being output by the Bose control unit or your system uses a different cable wiring, which means that you will need to verify that your cable connects each 5 pin DIN to some on the 8 pin mini DIN

2. Make sure that a headphone is not inserted in the headphone jack on the side. If it is, then sound in not connected to the rear ports. It may sound silly, but someone may have connected headphones and nobody realized that they're still connected.

3. Do you have an oscilloscope? If so, then you'll need to insert wires into the 8-pin mini DIN connector for the zone you're using. Using the pinouts from step one for the cable connector will create a mirror at the Bose jack as follows, left to right, top to bottom 3, 2, 1 - 6, (gap) 5, 4 - 8, 7.

Audio comes out at pins 7 and 8. So connect your scope at those points and ground the probe by clipping it to one the RCA shields. Turn the unit on and make sure that you have a source producing signal, such as a disc or a radio station and see if you see signal. The output at these pins appears rather low, so you set your scope sensitive enough.

My Bose produced audio, but also clicking at an increasing frequency and amplitude as the unit heated up, that results in a lot of noise. I verified the wiring and output with this method.

Can we connect the bose radio to a panasonictc-p42c2tvso music programs on the tv will play through the bose speakers


I connected mine to our tv through the audio jacks and not only did the sound not come through the bose speakers, I think I fried the curcuits---The radio no longer works--nothing happens when I plug it in. So don't do it . This bose radio is over 12 yrs old---the tv is new---that could be it

I want to connect my computer audio out "green audio cable" into my Bose 3-2-1 "audio in" jack so I can hear the computer sounds. How do I do it and what do I need to buy?


The audio output jack on the computer (green) takes a 1/8-inch stereo plug, also called a mini-stereo plug. On the Bose rear panel, the audio inputs are red and white RCA jacks. So you need an adapter cable with suitable plugs on each end. Radio Shack sells a couple of them in different lengths. Here's a link to one of them so you can see what it looks like.

All you need to do is plug in the cable at each end, select the rear audio input source on your Bose, and you're in business. Make sure you have the computer volume set to its full level in the Windows sound settings so you'll get the best performance.

If you need a copy of the Bose owner's manual for reference, you can find it here at Bose.

Anyway to use Bose companion 3 system without the control pod?


had the same issue. Trial and error - I tried shorting every pair in the control pod dock with a paper clip. Turns out it is totally possible to bypass. You need two: top row, right side to third row, one from the right (below it by two spaces), and second row (there are only two in the second row, connect them). One tells it to turn on, the other passes audio through. I'm only getting sound from the right channel, so probably need to connect one more pair...

Unable to connect ipod


Reset the radio (it has a processor) by just unplugging the power cord for about 30+ seconds and plugging it back in. If this doesn't solve the problem, try replacing the remote battery (CR2032- can be found almost everywhere batteries are sold) If all else fails, call Bose tech support. The cable you connected has nothing to do with this.
