Bose Control Pod won't work

\015 Hi. I have a Bose Companion 3 with 2.1 speakers. It worked like a charm until the control pod stopped working. Do you know where I can buy just the control pod for less than $165. (cost of a new one at Bose)? Or do you have a suggestion for fixing the pod? or where I could send it to be fixes. Thanks\015

Answers :

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.
Look at the control pod connection jack. The coonection pins may have been bent when you plug it in the wrong way.Straight them out and it will work again.

And this is a little weird, but I just tried unplugging the cord from my computer, just a little, and the left speaker started to work but not the right and when I plugged it back in


Well the jack you plug in has three surfaces. So when you pulled it part way out then the left speaker part of the plug came in contact with the right speaker contact inside the jack and it worked. Speakers are good so if you have checked your volum ... JBL CREATURE II Computer Speakers
