Hi there! My name is***** am a computer professional with over 15 years of experience with both Mac and Windows computers, phones, tablets, and printers. It would be my pleasure to assist you with this. I own a Bose portable speaker myself and have found the resetting the speaker usually works like a charm.

Resetting the speaker -

A factory reset clears paired mobile devices and language settings from the speaker and returns it to original factory settings.

1. Power on the speaker.

2. Press and hold for ten seconds.

Sometimes it takes more than one try to get it to reset. with the speaker on, please press the power button and hold it down for a full 30 seconds this time, or until you hear it beep and see the lights flash.

After you have reset the Bose speaker, you will need to go through the setup process again and re-pair your ipod.

Please click on the link below for complete instructions on how to do this. I'm happy to type out the steps for your myself but the documentation form Bose includes illustrations and pictures of the various buttons on the Soundlink that you will need press, so should be most helpful.
