Question about Bose SoundDock digital music system Docking Station for iPod - White (35703)

When we play our iPod on the Bose system, the sound isn't in stereo. It kinda sounds like a karaoke machine. It used to work just fine. What could have happened? What can I do to fix it?

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)

SOURCE: My Ipod will not play music when inserted into my

If the Bose system has another kinda input that you use with another devices...and with this one you tried an 3.5 jack input...that one may be for another purpose ...So make a cable and use a normal jack for the Ipod output ...and use another input in the system ...The issue may be some kinda pre amplification needed for the entry you use..For example it mast have a 2 rca cable input like any normal system for a stereo input (or single rca) so ..either use an adapter or make a cable by adding joining an old rca on a 3.5 jack ..
If the Ipod have output signal and the system works it have to work this way ..
Or take a look into the system menu and see if you have to select the input you use ...

Anything that has a headphone output can be adapted to feed an RCA cable pair for standard stereo to any audio device with a standard RCA input (except PHONO). Get a cable like the one described here: http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10218&cs_id=1021804&p_id=665&seq=1&format=2
and connect it into any available analog input EXCEPT "Phono".

Quite suddenly it doesn't play. The ipod registers that it's charging, and I've checked the remote control on another Bose system I have and it seems to be ok.


I just had the same problem with mine - turns out the Bose docking stations are comlete and utter **** and if yours keeps working you're one of the lucky few. Mine only had sparodic use over a 3 month period and it stopped producing sound the other day. I took it to a repair shop and they've seen a lot of them with the same problem. The solution - dump it in the bin and get a logitec set of speakers & you'll have better sound. This was proven by attaching the iPod to each system.

The music to sing along with apparently MUST come from a disk played on the unit. It appears that the external audio jacks are just to use the unit as either a boombox or to drive a larger sound system. You will have to convert your IPOD music into a Karaoke compatible CD to be able to sing along with it... They probably detect MIC input and mute any incoming signals from the RCA jack inputs,

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.

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.

Connecting ipod to bose system


Look at the back of your 3-2-1 to see if the auxillary is a single or dual output. You will need that information when you go to Radio Shack, or you can also get at the Apple store, a connector from Gigaware that connects to the ipod. It was only $15-$20,

Bose Sounddock problem


I had the same issue, it just stopped working today for no reason. Since it's out of Warranty and Bose charges too much to fix it, I took the bottom off, cleaned all the contacts, applied some dialectric silicone compound to the contacts, put it back together... and it works great!
