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

2 Answers

Bose SoundDock burned out two of my iPods - a Nano and a classic.

After docking my iPod classic last week, the Bose soundDock wouldn't play it and then my iPod completely shut down, I could not reset it...dead. About two days later, my daughter put her Nano on the same Bose Dock and her Nano completely burned out. Can't reset. Dead. Gone. Flat lined. Any help for my sound dock???

Hi, can be a problem if you plug a later Apple device into a dock that doesn't support USB charging. There is a much higher voltage on the dock connector on the older docks. The power is presented on different pins but they are very close together and any damage to the connector and even a previous liquid spill can cause the higher voltage to get where it shouldn't. The most inexpensive way to solve this is to fit a USB charge upgrade. This removes the high voltage from the dock connector. To check if your dock needs it - go to the invebo.com site and enter your serial number - it will tell you which version of internal hardware you have and if it supports USB charging for the later Apple devices.

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

Bose sound dock - no sound comes through it but my ipod works with the ear plugs so it's not my ipod


I had this problem for the pat two days. Believe it or not I took my Ipod touch of the dock. Shut the power off to the Ipod to reset it. Also the power to the docking station. turned everything back on. Put the Ipod back into the docking station and heard the beep.. and hit play and it was working again. Not sure but shutting Ipod off does act like a reset.

New ipod nano not compatable with bose docking


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.

Bose sounddock remote and ipod menu functions


Unfortunately I've never seen a universal remote that will control the extra functions of this. If it's the original SoundDock, you can only do: volume, power, play/pause, skip/scan. If this is a SoundDock II or SoundDock Portable, you can only control: volume, power, play/pause, skip/scan, and playlist up/ playlist down. Quite honestly, that's all I need to do on my SoundDock. I can't really read what's on my iPod from where I'm sitting in the first place. It may be possible to use a universal learning remote for this, but you'd have to teach commands from an apple remote as well as the bose remote, and the learning remote (+apple remote) may cost you over 1/3 the cost of the SoundDock. It also may not work perfectly. I hope this helps somewhat.
