My husband loves to tinker with electronics. He has been successful in fixing multiple electroic items for friends and our children. Here is his video on repairing a friends Bose Sounddock connector for an ipod.
From him: This is a short video on repairing a broken connector on a Bose Sound Docking Station. I am not confident that the repair I made will last as long as just purchasing a new board due to how small the connectors I had to fix are, but the repair did work and seemed to be holding up ok when I tested it. Worst case senario is that I have to buy a replacement board.
