The most cost effective solution is to fit an upgrade kit from invebo.com If you go to the site and enter your serial number then you get access to all the diagniostic videos and information. The upgrade takes aboyut 5 minutes to fit and is supplied on a no-risk 'buy and try' basis. You can also call the helpline and talk to the real engineers that repair the docks not the sales people..

um ur sounddock might require that u place the white docking piece that came with ur ipod to be place b4 the ipod is docked if not u may ruin the dock and the ipod usb port this is done because different generation ipods(nana and touch and ...) have different shapes so the entrance for docks may require to be eleveated or reduce in gradient basically if the dock isnt made for the specific ipod or u dont know just put the white piece in

Hi. Try to reset the Nano by pressing the middle button and menu at the same time. If same thing happened, i suggest you need to have your sounddock system checked with the manufacturer.

Maggie, you haven't stated which Bose system you have but the generally if the pop vocals are virtually inaudible and and it sound hollow then your ipod connector is damaged and one of the audio pins is not making contact. I have repaired hundreds of systems and you can spot it straight away. Assuming it is a Sounddock then the most inexpensive best is to 'buy and try' a docking connector from www.invebo.com. You can do it yourself click here to see the guide video. (Buy and try means that you are guaranteed a refund if it doesn't fix your problem)

I have been looking for sometime and have finally found a 3rd party power converter. Another solution is to send your docking station to Bose and for $99.00 they will repin the dock so charging will work. The converter and adapter only cost about $30.00. Here is the link to the site I ordered from. I just ordered it so I am not abot to confirm functionality yet.....

Diagnostic videos and spares for the Bose SoundDock. There are several builds of the Bose SoundDock Original that look identical from the outside. If you visit invebo.com and enter your dock serial number you get access to the resources that tell you which version the dock's internal hardware you have in your dock, diagnostic and self repair videos and what kits you should buy to fix or upgrade to charge or Bluetooth wireless streaming. All spares are supplied on a no-risk 'buy and try' basis.

Hi

First ensure the dock is powered up. Then simply set your iPod to play what you want and then insert it onto the dock. You should hear music immediately.

However, you should be aware that with the later generation ipod Touch (which your new one is) the older Bose I Docking stations will not charge the iPod Touch as the pin-outs were changed in the ipod design. There are also some problems in this case with the functionality of the remote control.

Bose is aware that the new versions of the iPod Touch (8GB, 16GB and 32GB) and iPod Nano (8GB and 16GB) do not charge when docked on the original Bose SoundDock.

Previous versions of these iPods used a specific pin on the dock connector on the bottom of these iPods for charging purposes. The pin to charge these iPods was changed to a different pin with the introduction of the newer models mentioned above.

The newer Bose SoundDock II charges your new iPod touch and is fully compatible with the iPod.

If you have the older sound dock you should call Bose as there is an upgrade available for around $99 that will work with the original Bose dock to give it 100% compatability with the new iPod.

To contact Bose:
US Telephone: (800)367-4008
International Tel: (508)766-1900

Hope this helps. Thanks for using FixYa.

This is true. The new iPod nano is not compatible with the original SoundDock. This only means that it won't charge the iPod's power. Audio should be okay. This is an Apple issue. They changed the way almost all of their iPods charge (except the iPod classic). Bose can upgrade the SoundDock for their normal repair fee of $99. This would also you a new 1 year warranty.
