One or both of the connectors may be damaged or there may a "dry joint" where connector is soldered onto the circuit board within the docking station. Alternatively, there may be some dirt or dust stuck between the connectors causing a poor connection. You can try sharply blowing into the connectors or try using a small brush such as an electric razor cleaning brush to remove any dirt/dust. If this doesn't resolve the issue you need to try connecting another iPod to the docking station and see if you still get the static noise problem. If not then the problem is probably confined to your iPod only.

The most common problem in Bose sound dock's usually is a failure of docking connector.It is impossible for a person with only normal soldering skills to replace just the connector.You have to buy the circuit board for $59 from the link below :-

You can replace the board yourself or you can give any local repair shop the part with the printed out instructions to follow.

This what i have seen on most cases.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

The ipod headphone cord acts as an antenna, and with the design of the nano you can't plug them into the ipod and the docking station at the same time. You can buy an audio adapter cable - a 3.5mm to 3.5mm one; just plug one end into your ipod and the other end into the aux port on the back of your dock. You can then use the radio, as the cable will act as the antenna. I got one on ebay - the cable has plugs on each end which are the same size as your ipod headphone plug. You can also get them in variety stores or electrical stores.

My Sincere advice is that you get it done in one of the Bose Centers in your area. Since it is brand new it should be under warranty period. If you are lucky you may not have to incur any expenses depending on the nature of defect and part replacement.

There is some docking stations or players for the generic MP3 players but most don't even need them. A lot of them do have speakers attached but you can always get generic stations such as the one that IPOD offers or if you want to save some cash, just get some speakers that will attach to the player. There is a lot of products out there so shop around and even check out your major retailers such as Wal Mart

This is usually not a normal problem. First you have to check the setup of the device and ensure that you have the proper iPod cable. Also to narrow down the iPod charging problem try using another iPod or an alternative cable for charging the iPod if it still doesnt work then it will be advisable to return the unit to your dealer.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

You probably have a broken docking connector or bad power supply. Contact to get a replacement board. It takes minutes to fit. They also sell the USB charge upgrade to enable you dock to charge the IPHONE on the Soundock original.

Which ipod are you using? a great many docks are not compatible with the touch. When shopping for a dock to use with the touch there is a separate icon on the packaging that denotes ipod touch and iphone compatibility. If you no longer have the box or user's manual check with Bose' customer service.

If your ipod is not a touch I would check to be sure that the dock connector is clean and clear of debris.

I am also assuming that the ipod synchronizes normally with your computer (meaning that the ipod's socket is good) Try listening to the ipod via headphones while it is connected and charging to make sure that there is not an internal problem with the ipod.

I hope this helps.

Where the Ipod sits in the dock, there's a removable piece that you can pop out....that should take care of your problem.

Your iPod is newer than the dock and I'm not sure why Apple does this, other than to sell more hardware, but your iPod is not compatible with your dock, so it will not allow charging. You can probably still us it for playing music, just not for charging. Sorry

could be related the charging pin. Try reinstalling the firmware if possible.
