Have had Bose companion 5s for about three years. The external volume deveice in not active. If I unplug it, the sound goes dead. The indicator light is stuck on green and is very dim.. The touch feature does not respond nor does the volume. Sound is set very low an barely audible. Can I get replacement external volume control or is the problem inside the base unit itself? Any help out there with a similar problem.

Thanks JT

email support@bose.com or contact a Bose Support Specialist in Germany; or call US support at 1-800-367-4008. Something very odd is happening here. You are using the same laptop, correct? If not, let me know, as there are some things to try. If Bose has a solution, I'd love to hear it.

While I can not second guess your technician, perhaps the problem may not be that severe. The Bose Companion 5 is only on standby when plug (having no power switch) and therefore the power supply circuitry is the only one working. Chances are it will be only the +5VDC logic supply that is really turned on at that instant. All others would be OFF hence my belief that the problem may be limited to the PSU and/or part of the logic board. Perhaps you can suggest to your tech to test the logic board (motherboard) using an external +5 supply. All others can be be tested and repaired using component replacement.

Should you not be comfortable going this route, perhaps you best bet would then be to get in touch with Bose or their local representative.

You can try looking over the country here and the page will display a Bose contact information. Say the Philippines would be:
Eleksis Marketing Corporation
Unit 206 Fox Square Building
53 Connecticut Street
Northeast Greenhills
San Juan City, Metro Manila, 1500, Philippines
Tel-1: 632 724-9566
Tel-2: 632 724-7527
Fax: 632 724-0176

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

General situation here, YOu have to give more details, on your sound card, sound speakers brand, if mono, or 5.1 please, for me to help you.
but a quick response, be, may be a chip on the speakers, time to change it, or some speakers have bad resistant chip that sometimes get hot, and burn, have a look or change to other speaker and test.

Hello Andrew, the jack connector on the back panel of your Bose SA1, serves to receive control information, from a Bose Master Command
It is not an audio input
