Sorry to hear that you are having trouble with your Bose system. Since it is turning off real quick it sounds like there may be a short in the system. The thing to remember about most modern electronics is they do not have a physical on/off switch. The power is controlled a circuit. Connect the circuit to turn on the device and connect it again to turn off the device.

So the short can be causing a ION charge on the board and after a certain point the charge gets strong enough to connect the circuit which turns off the device.

Now if you are lucky the issue is with the fuse not connected properly and it is just arching in the cradle because it is not connected properly which is causing the arching across the connector. I had a TV that had that problem once.

So what I would do is contact Bose to make sure that you can not get warranty service before opening the unit. If you can not then I would check the fuse and make sure it is connected good.

Hope this helps.

If you have any more problems and/or questions let me know.

Have a Bose 3-2-1 Series III. When I put in a DVD, I get sound through the Bose but no picture on my Pioneer TV. This is the second time it has happened. The first time it, we managed to get it going...


Here are 3 things to try and an if all else fails at the end.

1) Make sure the TV is set to the correct Video Input to see the video from DVDs on the Bose system.
• Make sure a DVD is in the disc tray.
• If the TV is connected to the media center using the HDMI cable:
Switch from one Video Input to another and then back to the original input.

2) Turn everything off, then:
Turn on the TV and set the TV Video Input for the Bose system video.
Turn on the Bose system and press DVD.

3) Turn off both the TV and the Bose system and then:
Unplug the HDMI cable from both ends.
Disconnect the power cables from both your TV and the Bose 321 system.
Re-connect power to the TV and to the Bose 321 system.
When the Bose 321 system startup message disappears from the display,
re-connect the HDMI cable to the TV then Bose 321 system.
Turn on the TV first, then turn on the Bose 321 system.

If all the above fail then disconnect the HDMI cable that connects the TV to the Bose 321 system and reconnect the two using a Component cable, an S-Video cable, or the Composite cable provided with the system.


Please leave feedback

I try to plug apple TV to my Bose sytem lifestyle 20. The apple TV is plugged by hdmi on my TV (hdmi2). The apple tv image is good but the sound is coming from my tv not from my bose system. i decided to...


You might want to try connecting the Apple TV to your TV using HDMI, then using the optical cable from your TV to your Bose system. In your TV's settings, there should be an Audio Output option. You'll want to turn off the TV speakers. Optical audio can be a little strange compared to traditional analog. If your cord is going bad, it could result in behavior like you described.

Bose 321 tray will not open


If it's flashing on and off, then the DVD drive is the least of your problems. Check to see if there is a dual-voltage switch on the bass module. (if so, set it to 120v if you're in the US) As for the DVD drive--> Try another reset by unplugging the power for at least 30 seconds. Plug it back in, "Bose 321" will appear and disappear from the display, and then press the eject button before you power it back on. Wait about 3-8 seconds. If the drive won't open, it will probably need a repair. $150 for repair w/ new warranty through Bose- 800-367-4998.

Outside bose speakers keep turning off after a few seconds


It sounds like the speakers are either peaking and shutting down or they are dodgy. Check the volume going into the speakers and turn it down see if that works, otherwise take the speakers back. It might be worth trying a different set of speakers as well

IT'S STUCK ON HOTEL MODE-Bose system


I followed the instructions that are posted on your web site again. The trick was to hold the enter key in, turn the on/off switch at the same time. Continue holding the enter key in, turn the on/off back on, hold for two seconds and then hit the volume down. It worked.


Thanks Marion

BOSE LIFE STYLE SYSTEM SOUND (AUDIO) GOES QUITE FOR A SECOND


This was posted a while ago, so I'm sure it's probably been solved by now. For anyone with audio issues using this or any other Lifestyle system: If you experience audio problems (no audio, intermittent audio) from more than just 1 source (especially if it involves internal sources like DVDs or the radio) then just reset this by unplugging the power for about 30+ seconds from the bass module and the media center DC power. Check the audio input cable (multi-pin din going from the media center to the bass module) for bent pins.
If this doesn't solve the problem, you could try replacing the input cable, but those are usually pretty robust. You could call Bose at 800-367-4008 for tech support or to set up a repair if this fails.

Ringing sound


you need to bring the head unit and the bassbox back to bose for service or repair, it is aproblem with the powering up of the amp module, and could be caused by the control circuit in the haed unit or a problem in the amp, which has a slow ramp function to prevent louds bangs and pos at start up. in that case i would guess the latter is faulty, i would guess it is also a warranty repair for bose too.

Bose 321 DVD Stuck Won't Open


This can happen if the disc has been put in upside down accidentally, if both sides are highly reflective (e.g. blank recording discs). If so, you need to get the system to eject the system before it attempts (and fails) to read the wrong side of the disc:
On the back of the Acoustimass module (sub woofer) is a power switch. Use this to the turn the system off and wait 30 seconds. Switch it back on, the media centre flashes up "Bose 321" - press the eject button firmly once as soon as this disappears. If this works, contact Bose with the serial number from the media centre to see if the system needs a (free) software update (a disc they send in the post) - just in case the system is having general disc reading issues.

However, it may be that the drive has failed - it's a mechanical part in a mass produced system so this is not unreasonable, just disappointing. But because you have bought a premium system, the company will rush to help you - call them for a repair and explain you need the disc back urgently. they'll probably arrange an urgent, fast turnaround repair....

Downloaded 1 CD to Bose 3 2 1. Now system is stuck in continuous rebot mode.


There seems to be some large problem with the drive, where an obstruction within the drive pops up. The solution is to return it or repair it for a new unit. I am disappointed with the Bose team on this one, let's be SURE. So your bet is to steer clear i suppose! maybe try a reciever based Sony HTIB? Thanks! Good Luck!
