The Bose Community Forum was launched at a time when robust online support was not available for Bose customers. Over the past several years we have added new online service channels that provide a more interactive and complete digital experience. Additionally, we have enhanced the My Bose Account capabilities to deliver a more personalized and self-service experience. As a result, Bose has made the decision to close Community Forum for Consumer electronics products on September 30th. The Bose Pro portion of the Community will still operate as usual.

Please visit our support homepage to experience one of our many other digital service channels or simply use your Community log-in credentials to sign in to your My Bose Account to view your orders and view support options.

Thank you to all who have contributed and benefited from interacting in our Community. We look forward to continuing to serve you online.

My remote battery cover is jammed

I have a portable sound dock with a remote. The cover on the back where the battery goes is jammed. I’ve tried everything to get it off, with a coin as directed. It won’t budge and the plastic around that battery cover is now larger because the plastic of the “cap” is shaving off because of the many times I’ve tried to remove it to put in a new battery. A great system with amazing sound. Help!

Re: My remote battery cover is jammed

Hmnnn.  If I remember correctly, the battery cover on the remotes for the SoundDocks are a little round piece of plastic with a coin slot in the middle. They need to be twisted counter-clock-wise to open and only need a small turn (like from the 12 o’clock to the 10 o’clock position. If they have not been opened for a while they can get a little stuck. So, what about 1) very gently banging the remote on a firm surface before opening.  Gently of course as to not damage anything. Sometimes time and humidity can slightly corrode surfaces together that a gentle bang would loose.  2) You could take a Qtip and slightly soak the outer edges of the battery cover with some rubbing alcohol. Alcohol will typically be safe to use around electronic parts as it evaporates quickly.  Once opened, it may not hurt to clean all the contacts with rubbing alcohol anyway.   Best of luck to you!
