Bose Companion 3 control pod issues

\015 I have a Bose Companion 3 series 1 multimedia speaker system that has recently stopped functioning correctly. The control pod is bright red(not amber) when muted and very faint green when unmuted. Sound is stuck at a very low volume and the control pod does not change the volume at all. Also, the tap mute function does not work correctly at all. It will randomly mute if I even get close to it. The volume goes slightly up when I remove the control pod from the woofer unit. I tried hooking an ipod up to the aux jack on the control pod but got nothing. I called Bose and they wanted me to send the whole unit in for their flat rate $79 repair because the csr thought it sounded like a power issue. I think it sounds more like the control pod has died. Any ideas?\015
