Question about Bose Lifestyle-28EW System

Open Question

Volume changes on its own.

I have not had any problems with this system up until recently. The problem started out with the volume changing by itself. No matter what the source is. During movies/radio/etc.. the volume will go up and down randomly. The volume change display is shown as well. This has now progressed to it muting itself, changing modes, and powering on/off by itself. I thought that the remote could be going bad. But even after putting the remote in a different part of the house the problem still exists. I am very friendly with technology, but am not sure where to start with this one. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

SOURCE: volume

I had this problem and checked the main wire going from console to bass unit, it was loose from where I had moved the unit to insert another device (RCA Jacks). Apparently if the wire from the unit is loose, it over - rides the volume and by default adjusts it to 30. Additionally, I reset the system console and bass unit console, during this process. Try this, it might fix your problem.

Volume turns down by itself until it says VOLMIN

I have a Samsung home theater system model HT-D6730W. I have had some issues with the volume turning itself down till it says volmin. I've seen that I'm not the only one with this issue!!!! I have tried all the suggestions that were posted. Doing a hard reset, changing settings, I bought a cooling pad for laptops Hopi g those would fix it. I called Samsung support Which was a joke!!! I took the putter cover off and cleaned all the dust from the unit, removed batteries from remote, removed all cable connection on the back of the unit other than the HDMI cable going to the tv. Having done all that the unit was still turning its self down. I'm a bit of a tinker and so while the cover was off of the unit, displaying all the delicate stuff inside, I turned on the home theater system and played a movie set the volume to a good listening sound. When it started to turn it self down I remove the wide wire ribbon from the main circuit board going to the touch panel on the front of the unit. Voila!!! Sound quit going down!!!! I unplugged unit and removed front touch panel and cleaned all dust from the inside of it. Put it all back together. Tested. Still doing it. Removed the touch panel again and this time I disconnected the small wire ribbon for the volume touch buttons. Reassembled and tested. NO MORE ISSUES!!! Everything on the front still works other than the volume buttons. You can still change the volume using the remote!!!! I hope this finds everybody that is having this issue with there unit.

The sound/volume is not working properly on our Bose 321 system...i.e., whereas, a "normal" volume at (let's say) 35-40 is way loud, but now have to turn volume up to 100 (maximum) to be able to...

Make sure the device it is connected to has its audio properties setup correctly. If this is a cable or satellite box, most of them have a volume output level. Changing this will change overall volume.

My system shot down during a movie

The reason why your receiver is going in protect is because there is a short circuit happening. This would either be on your speaker wires, speakers or receiver itself. What you want to do to check would be:
1. Unhook all sources and speakers from your receiver.
2. Turn on your receiver and crank up the volume to maximum, if your receiver does not shutdown or go on protect then the receiver is OK. If it does shutdown and go on protect then its an internal problem on the receiver and you would need to send that over to an authorized service center.
3. Hook up a source and 1 speaker. Play something from the source or the fm tuner, Crank Up the volume to about 46 or 47 volume. If the receiver does not shutdown, its good.
4. Hook up a second speaker and repeat the process until you encounter the pop and shut down
if for example you encounter the pop on the 4th speaker, try changing the speaker wires.
5. If the receiver still shuts down then it would be a short on the speaker itself and it would need to go to an authorized service center.

Surround sound keeps shuting off

the system go to protect mode in case of trouble in output stage(power output component and cords and speakers.
try to connect each speaker one by one until you find the bad one change cord first for the bad one and check if not working you must change speaker itself.if all above does not solve the problem you must pass your sony to service center

Volume Does what It wants

My Yahoo YHT-400 does something similar, only it won't do it right away, it has to start getting hot first, then if I have the volume set at 25 or higher, it will slowly start turning itself up louder until it either maxes out, or I intervene. Either way, it's really annoying, even though I'm only using it as an amplifier for my computer. I just figured it was doing it where it's second-hand and had tons of dust inside caked in and around the fans until I cleaned it out. But when on AUX/TV, one would think the Bit Rate Transfer gauge would remain at 00, but it jumps up and down constantly, whether there's any audio being put through it or not.

Yahoo YHT 630 problem

This is the way speakers sound on most theatre systems. It just depends on how much power is in the system itself. The more power the better the sound. If you have a button on your remote that has the word 'LEVEL' on it, press this and you can change the power that goes to each speaker.
