You are probably right; this sounds like a normal startup routine that puts some circuits to a test for function but in your case, it doesn't complete the test, indicating that something has failed.
Try pull the AC plug and ingoring it overnight to see if the condition will change. In most of the modern home systems, there are simple microprocessors to handle the many tasks available and, like any darned computer, they may trip over themselves now and then.

BOSE CINEMATE WILL NOT TURN ON


pretty commong problem with these unit is for the control box to go bad. If it's not under warranty, i suggest contacting Bose for service as they usually will give you a flat-rate repair no matter what is wrong with your unit.

I won an acoustic solutions flatscreen. When I try to switch it on from the remote only the blue power light shhows and no picture. Can anyone help. By the way I am in the UK


A few options that i can think of...
First, make sure the input source (Cable, Satelite, DVD player) is selected on the TV. You should have a "source" button or "input" button on the remote to cycle through the various input options. Push the source/input button several times in case it is set to an input jack where you have nothing connected.

Second, your backlight might be burned out (or the power supply for the backlight). Tonight, turn off all the room lights and close the shutters (I assume you have them since you are in the UK : )) Anyhow, turn on the TV and watch for any amount of light changing on the screen. Even if the TV not getting an input signal, you should see some different shade of Gray/Black when you turn the unit on.

If you do not see any amount of light (gray/black change) when you turn the TV on in total darkness, your backlight is not working. Either the bulbs are burned out, loose or never connected correctly; or, the power supply for those lights are not working.

The backlight on this unit is likely a compact flurescent tube. If this is the case, you can try to change the tube (about 50 to 100 quid for the bulb alone).

Check the manufacture data on the back panel. Likely near where the cord comes out of the unit. If it says 2009 or earlier, I would just get a new one.

Thats about all I can suggest because repairs on these units are nearly impossible for the DIY crowd and parts are so expensive that a new one is a better use of your money in most cases (I almost said a better investment but, since its value will never go up, it will never be an investment).

Cheers!

Prove it's alive by feeding it the signal from any other source, like Left or Right Tape Out. Use FM as the source to keep things simple. Then we can move forward with analyzing the correct failing unit.

BOSE ACOUSTIMASS SYSTEM 15 SUBWOOFER - NO POWER


I will try as best I can... There is no light on the unit. There is a two position switch, that's your on/off switch located on the botttom of the unit next to the pwr cord input... When the straight lined side is pushed down the unit is energized. When you pwr up the unit you should hear a light bump, not a cracking noise. There is a fuse on the main input/output board that is pretty easy to pop and swap.

Sound issues Samsung series 6


The speakers that come with built into the units are very limited at best. Better than the old 4" speaker that came in TV sets from the old days, but not by much. Ask if you are not expecting more out of the output than is reasonable.
I would offer that the true design intent is to hook the HDTV into a home surround system, a home system is optimized for and designed for your listening pleasure. I'm guessing that your HDTV is an LCD with a sound bar at the bottom, if so it is for general use and not intended for critical listening.
I have a 61" Series 7 DLP and even with larger built in speakers, the difference is night and day between my surround sound system and the HDTV stand output.

No green led light on bose cinemate system


I had the problem, after a lightning surge through our house, that destroyed item connected to the telephone lines. The Cinemate interface unit stayed red (powered), but could not get green light to come on, and obviously no audio. Found through Bose tech support that the the units are failing from surges "too often". They are trying to find out why and fix the longterm problem. Tell them you had a power surge (which you likely did), the green light won't come on, but the remote works with TV, etc. They will send a UPS Return Tag for you to send back the small interface unit (only). Upon receipt, they will 2-day air you a new one. It solved the problem.
