Bose SoundDock base ripped out

Is it possible to have my Bose iPod dock repaired? Someone pulled out the iPod too quickly and the connector came out with the iPod? Need someone in CHGO area, preferably West Suburbs. THX!

    Same problem except that the pcb connector is lost and only the flat ribbon cable is hanging out. Can anybody provide a circuit of the connector pcb?

    i have a similar problem.



    i think the connector that the ipod connects on is loose and has lost its connection from the pcb board.

    i tried to unscrew it from the rear but the screws are also not getting undone.



    can one get just the pcb board on which the ipod is connected?

Bose repairs


It may be expensive to have someone replace the connector. One option is to squirt some silicone around the base, being careful to still allow contact to be made to the iPod dock connector. You could get a dock extension cable (see link below). It may fit better and will reduce the strain on the Bose connector. If it's still loose, you could glue the extender cable in.

Alternatively, you could use a 3.5 mm audio cable to connect the iPod headphone jack to the Aux-in jack on the back of the Bose. Just living with it may be prudent.

Bose SoundDock will no longer connect to ipod to either play music or charge iphone/ipod devices. Any ideas how to fix or is connector on base damaged and needing repair?


My guess is that the iPod connector in the Sounddock is loose or damaged. You can get a new connector and solder it on yourself (very difficult!) or you could get a replacement PCB at http://www.chargeconverter.com/store/index.php?route=product/category&path=37 which is quite easy to replace (see http://ridax.wordpress.com for description).

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.

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.

Bose docking station chip broke off


I had the same problem that the ipod would onl play when I pulled it forward in the dock. Looking closely, I saw that some of the pins on the left hand side of the connector were bent forward, so I bent them back with a needle:

(ie. pushing the pins to the right, as shown here). This solved the problem for me.

If your connector is too far gone, I suggest looking to:

http://www.chargeconverter.com/shop/connector.htm

for a new connector for £3-4 or

http://www.chargeconverter.com/shop/connector.htm

for a whole PCB (Printed Circuit Board) replacement for £10-15.

Hope this helps...
