Question about Bose (321GS) System

Bose surround sound system cuts off

I have a bose surround sounds system that is probably about 6 years old and has worked perfectly until now. It will work for about 30-45 minutes and then the sound cuts out. The display shows that the cd is still running, radio signal is still there, or whatever we're running thorugh it, but the speakers go silent. There's no pop or warning, they just go off. Any ideas?

I don't know a model number or anything, but it I think it is called a Lifestyle system. 5 speakers plus the sub/hub and then a cd player/tuner with aux imput. The closest thing I found an image of online was a "Bose Lifestyle 12 Series II Home theater system"

    I have the same problem, the sound goes off after 10 seconds but the system shows on, if I turn it off and then on again I get the same results. I repalced the speaker wires from the system to the TV with no luck. Any suggestions?

    same issue but mine cuts out after 10 minutes. My outdoor 251 system continues to work fine every time this happens. I am looking to take the system / components inot a Bose Service location. My guess is it is in the sub, since the 251 system and amp are seperate and work fine. Not sure what hecost will be the system is ten yrs old but still to good to scrap!

    I have a Lifestyle 12 system and had the similar thing happen to my system. Worked for a while and when volume is raised above a certain point, not very loud at all, it shuts down. Shuts down volume is about a tenth of what is capbale of. If the system has short circuited what particular piece is it - speakers, subwoofer, circuit board ? Can all of these be fixed or is the system beyond repair?

Hi when you turn on check all your speakers work check connections make sure the wire has no stray strands touching the fault could be in the sub unit this is possible / or your speakers one or more could have gone short circuit due to exessive volume thats if you play loud. Had a party lately .Just joking .Regards kirk

Bose cinemate speaker system suddenly gets very loud why?


If the unit is around 5-6 years old or less, you have a bad Rotary Encoder. It is an input to the microprocessor IC(a computer within your Bose). If you would like to inquire about repairing your Bose, please visit me at my website, audioserviceclinic.com. You may contact me directly from the site.

No sound Bose Lifestyle 38 III


I am quite sure that the indicator lights should be green. The blinking yellow likely indicates that there is no communication between the head and the audiomass. Verify that the connections are tight and then try powering off (unplugging) the system (both head and audiomass) for 30 seconds and then powering on again. That will often re-establish communications.

BOSE 38-WHITE BACK:ERROR 801-LOUD SCRITCHING NOISE AFTER SHUT OFF


Hello any cable or satelite tv show is now more comonly in high definition sound and video! and the techs are wrong because their are plenty of movies on tv including news channels that broadcast in surround sound ,but in order to get that surround sound you must either have a connection from the tv,s audio out or you can also out put the sound from the cable or satelite box out to your bose system as as the scritching sound where does it only happen when in surround mode or stereo mode ? if you play a dvd or cd does it still make noise? and can you be more specific on your terminology SCRITCHING not really shure what you mean by that word! thank you glenn mayer

System echos when dvd is in. When I mute the Bose sytem I can hear the TV sound without the echo.


The echo you hear is the audio delay between your TV speakers and Bose speakers. Muting (or lowering the volume) on the TV will eliminate the echo. Some TVs have a setting to turn of TV speakers entirely, allowing you to listen to your TVs audio strictly through your Bose system.
