    Hi , i'm trying to troubleshoot a Bose Ipod Player for someone. When the Ipod is connected, it emits a loud clack sound, then it stops, then while the music is playing it emits again the same sound. Is it a problem in the amplification of the sound? or can it be a problem with the speaker?
    Any clue?
    ( It does that since the person bought it)
    Thanks

    Sounds like a warranty condition.
    No fingers until you clear up that option.
    and no, it isn't the speaker that is causing the problem.

    Unfortunately the warranty is over...
    What would be a good method to find where the clack is coming from?
    I figured I could follow the path that goes to the speaker as the problem must be in the amplification of the sound?

    Also, what kind on components could more likely cause that problem? a chip, a capacitor, a diode...Since everything is working except that clacking sound...what could cause it??

    If you have an idea about the approach strategy please tell me before I invest 40 hours a week to find where that damn clack sound is coming from.

    You have the right idea...start at the speaker and trace backwards. My problem is that I've never seen an Ipod or an Ipode, not even the outside of one. I expect it will be incredibly dense in there, and mostly digital. No clues coming from me!
