Bose Remote Control RTC1T-27

I push "System" botton, my screen goes black with a screen saver on it and nothing is displayed on my Bose display unit. I push "Settings" and the settings are displayed on my display unit, but my tv is still black with screen saver. How do I switch it back or what did I do wrong?

    OK, so I called Firedog and they had absolutely no idea what the problem was. They couldn't reset the dang thing because you couldn't view on the tv what was being pushed. We ended up going back to where we bought it and switching out the main unit and Whala....it worked.

You need to make sure that the video input is set to the same input you use to watch your videos and not your TV. In my case I watch videos on input VIDEO 4 and not VIDEO 1 which is the default TV input. To solve this problem push the "input" button (located under the gray TV button) on your control several times to scroll through video inputs until you hit the correct one.

Unit powers up but display is frozen and no nothing after that. No remote or button response except for display off.


The display microprocessor(computer within your unit) may be bad. This IC is responsible for processing any and all IR(infra red) commands from the remote, as well as scanning all the push buttons on the front of the unit. If you're interested in having your unit repair, please visit me website at audioserviceclinic.com. You may contact me there. Thank you.

BOSE LIFESTYLE 50 REMOTE CONTROL NOT WORKING


FOR THE BOSE LIFESTYLE 50 SYSTEM (Model P1 - Personal Music Center remote)
You can re-calibrate the remote first by following the steps below:
1. press and hold down on the display screen in the top middle area of the remote
2. After a few seconds the word CAL will appear in the middle and the word SOURCE will appear in the top left area of the remote.
3. Press the SOURCE button.
4. The word KEYPAD will appear in the top right area of the remote
5. Press the KEYPAD button and a small circle will appear in the bottom right of the remote.
6. Press the Circle
This should've recalibrated the remote.
If you need to relink the remote to the system, HOLD down the mute button while having the remote as close as possible to the unit. You will hear a beep . Release the button, after a pause , you will hear the remote beep twice.
This re-links the remote to your system
If the backlight is not working, your options are
1. Spend $349 and get a new one from Bose Or
2.Spend $220 and get a used one on E-bayOR
3. Use your remote with the lights on so that you can see the display :-)...the cheapest way OR Invest in an LED Book light that you can clamp on the remote and use that for your light ($9.99)

My Bose V30 system with the RCV1T-27 remote wont send the IR signal to my Motorola DCT 6416 if im not standing right in front of the Bose display unit. The light on the display still blinks as if its...


Hello
Check the cells in the battery compartment of your remote control handset. Replace it with new ones and check. Still you poise this problem, the intensity of infrared rays come from your remote control, or the sensitivity of the infrared sensor inside your bose front panel system may have the trouble. Just replace the infrared LED of your remote control with an other one of same type. If it does not helps you, repalcing the infrared sensor will reftify your problem. OK.

"Dead" Remotes Can Be Saved
How to Re-Start Your "Dead" Remote Control
This only takes about a minute and will restart 1 in 3 "Dead" Original Remote Controls. Good Luck!
-----------------------------
Step 1- Pull the batteries out of the remote and leave them out until Step 4.
Step 2- Press and release each and every button one at a time on the remote control until every button has been pressed and released at least once!
Step 3- If your remote has slide switches, you must move the switch to each position then repeat the button pushing in Step 2.
(When you're done, be sure to put the slide switch in the correct position to operate the unit the remote came with!)
Step 4- Put the batteries back into the remote, being very careful to install them correctly.
New batteries should be used if you're not sure about the old ones.
Step 5- Try the remote.
Special Note:
If you have a digital camera, camcorder or camera phone you can test the remote to see if it is emitting a signal. Face the remote towards the lens of the digital unit until you can see the front of the remote. Depress any button on the remote. You should see a light (steady, blink or flashing) being emitted from the remote. If you do then the problem might not be the remote but the sensor on the unit.
If it works, Great!

The sub is bad.the power supply inside the sub is your problem.If your unit comes on it could also be a defective dsp pcb in the sub.everything in the sub runs the head unit.If you send to bose they have a 175. flat rate.

The volume control on my Bose 38 lifestyle system will not adjust the system, with either the remote or the volume controls on on the console.


On a Bose 38, the volume will self adjust at start, and then you will be able to change volume using either radio remote, or buttons on main unit (the one with DVD).

If the unit is not responding , then there is a fault.

A fault where the Bose 38 is working (eg. you can swap from DVD to AUX on bose), but you cannot control volume (you do not see the values on main unit display) is rather unusual.

Ensure that you have correctly connected TV, receiver, or any other external device to the bose in Input, not in output from Bose.
If you have an HDTV, use the optical input on Bose, that is the only digital audio in on a Bose 38.

Check if the problem depends on connections, if it does not, let me know.

My Bose 321 series II is not responding to the control remote commands. Everything else does (TV, VCR,etc), but the BOSE receiver does not.


Replace the batteries from the remote control. Press and hold the TV button on remote for 5 seconds. If the red light shines bright, your remote is OK since it is showing it's programmable side. If unit still won't go on using the remote, reboot the whole system by unplugging the power cord and other wire from the Subwoofer. Wait one minute, then replug all and see if the system displays BOSE 321 in front when re-connected. If so, try the remote and if that doesn't work, your dead, the Infra red communication device from the unit to the remote is busted inside the unit and needs to be returned to the company like mine!!!!!

I have a lifestyle 18 bose system which only plays region 2 DVDs. How can I get it to play region 1 as well?


Hi, check below the media center/DVD player as to what region your system was fixed into (indicated by a number inside a globe). This is located underneath the unit just beside the serial number. FI the system indicates that your system indeed is set to region-2 then proceed as follows. IF it marks a different number region, then bring the unit to the Bose service center.

Steps in UNLOCKING REGION CODE of media center:

1. Load a DVD and wait for the display to show "REGION CODE ERROR, CONTACT BOSE"
2. Once this comes out, press eject button on your remote control but do not remove DVD disc
3. Press the following button commands in sequence (make sure they are in sequence and are pressed by looking into the media center display where a small green dot should blink indicating that each command is received).
4. First you need to initiate the system region change on the remote control:
a.while the tray is out and the DVD is still in the tray, press and release "RIGHT" arrow button
b. then press and release "UP" arrow button
c. after, press and release "SHUFFLE" button
d. then press and release "STOP" (black square symbol) button
e. lastly, press and release "MUTE" button and system should go on mute (indicated in the LCD display

After this, you now can change the region code by doing the following button press on your remote control:
1. While the DVD tray is out still and the DVD disc is in the tray, press and release "STOP" button (black square mark)
2. Press and release "SHUFFLE" button
3. Press and release number "0" button on numeric keypad
4. Lastly, press and release "ENTER" button on your remote control and the DVD tray should go back inside the DVD. The disc then should start loading and playing resumes.
5. Allow the DVD disc to run for a few minutes (if you want enjoy a full movie) to keep the region change resident before switching off again.

Now enjoy your Bose Lfiestyle DVD System REGION FREE!!!

Do note, this does not apply to Bose DVD system that are locked to region-1

Glad to be of service always!
