Question about Bose Companion 3 Series II Multimedia Speaker System (3-Piece) - Graphite/Silver
I have a Bose Companion series 2, but it doesn't work anymore. I can not see the green light on my Pod Control. Please help me with this problem.
Maybe a tranformer burnout, this is the most common cause, refer to a Bose service center

Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".
Initially, the 14 seconds interval is significant. This is indicative that whatever fault it is, it is coupled to a time-based circuitry. The time-based circuitry need not be complicated. it can actually be a simple resistor/capacitor network. The capacitor takes a certain amount of time to charge and then discharge (14 seconds, 'whoomp'). Having said this, then the foremost suspect would be an electrolytic capacitor, probably low value (1~4.7uF), probably a coupler/decoupler. Of course the capacitor serving other functions could very well be the culprit as well.
Corrective measure would entail, identifying/determining which capacitor and replacement. Tedious as it may sound, each capacitor would then have to be tested for capacitance and leakage out of circuit or at least 1 leg un-soldered.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
Pls be informed that due to my current rank and rating, even a Helpful would be detrimental to my status. Should this solution not address your concern, it would be appreciated if you could just not rate it at all. Cheers.

SOURCE: Bose Control Pod won't work
Try changing the plug on the control pod, those plugs are fairly weak and prone to breakage. Does there appear to be any strain at all on the plug itself? if so then that is where I would start. If you have a series 2 then I can help you, or if you can find out if the 2 control pods are the same, that would be fine too, but I have a series 2 system companion 3 and if needed I will cut my cable to trace the wiring and then replace your plug for you. my cost for this would be $40, that includes return shipping with priority mail.

you have to call customer service at 1-800-367-4008.Run about $35.
For the broken cable, have you tried to fabricate a new cable for it?

SOURCE: The control pad/dial isn't working properly. There doesn't seem to be enough juice to get sound. The green light is on when plugged in but its not transferring sound from the source to the speakers.
oh ok. I'll chek the input again Thanks
