anyone with a guide or tips on fixing a bose dock? it charges, but no sound. i feel it can be reborn...?

Bose dock, has remote and charges ipods/Phones. decent sound. it still charges a phone, but no sound on it. even tried the speciality $40 Aux cable to attempt sound from laptop, etc...which was working not long ago...it seems the power cables plastic has fused itself to the receving end of the main, internal board......?? anyone w/ experience can keep this thing out of the landfill, perhaps? thanks?

could you be more specific? describe it further? ok first, you've got a male to male auxiliary cable correct? did you connect the cable from the audio output to the audio input on some speakers or a computer and play music via the iPod/Phone port? did it play sound when you did this? if so, the speakers may be the problem. secondly does the docking system have radio or any other way to play music other than through the audio input port or the iPod/Phone port? if so did you try connecting the auxiliary cable from the audio output port on the Bose system to the audio input on the speaker system? did it play sound? so if it played sound on the first test then there's a problem with the speakers or internal electrical components. if it played sound on the second test but not the first there is a problem with the iPod/Phone port. if it played sound on both tests then there is a problem with the speakers or the internal electrical components. if it didn't play sound on either then there is a problem with the audio output port and the speakers or other internal electrical components. i am thoroughly confused as to what you mean by the last two sentences of the description please explain it more. do you mean that you've opened up the Bose and have seen that the plastic insulation on the power cables has melted and "fused" onto the PCB board? if so you bought a faulty piece of equipment. it's a confusing section rewrite the last two sentences please.
