    I have exactly the same problem. We've been using the Bose 3 2 1 for years, but just the other day, suddenly the video isn't working. I've checked the cables and tried turning off the power to reset it. Nothing. Any advice appreciated!

    I have the same issue. Just recently when I put in a DVD, the sound comes through fine but there is no picture. I've tried every thing I can think of and still no picutre.

    Is the system connected to your TV through the HDMI input? I think there HDMI connection is factory faulty because mine has failed once before I had the equipment replaced not fixed and it just haooened again . Same problem sound but no video.

The picture signal cable should be attached to the TV or maybe the channel is set wrong...Try channel 3 - 4 or channel 90 on TV

My 321 system can not find the HDMI inpute for the picture, yet I can hear the sound when the DVD is played. I get a no signal found.


I'm not familiar with the Bose 321 but in most cases, you must go into the settings menu and activate the HDMI output on the DVD player in the video settings. I don't know why manufacturers do this, but it's common and frustrating. Give it a try... Also, make sure your TV settings are correct.... AND your input source is set to HDMI in, not AV or Composite. You can do that on the TV remote control. I hope this helps!

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

Bose 321 only plays DVD movies in black and white


This happens because the connections are not pushed in fully. Check the connections are push them fully in, they are very stiff on Bose units.

If that doens't help, try a new cable.

Xbox 360 and bose surround sound no video


If your TV is HD, you should definitely be connecting the component video cables (green, blue and red) from the 360 to the TV (the 321 will not do video pass-thru from component cables). -Make sure you have a picture at this point. (TV switched to whichever input you connect the 360 to)
You can get an RCA extension cable for the audio portion (red and white) to connect to the 321 for audio. You could also connect an optical audio cable to the 321. An optical cable must be assigned from the system menu to work..
Let me know if this helps.

Hooking up bose 321 to my tv


I am about to go through the same process. I have a Bose 321, and am on the verge of getting a HDTV. From what I can figure, the Bose can play a dvd and input it to the HDTV via video and audio output plugs off the back of the Bose to the audio/video input jacks on the back of the new HDTV. I think individual cables will have to be run for each. They usually are red or white, sometimes green or blue. I am sure everyone has seen these in their life. The Bose 321 technology only had what was called an S-Video cable output for the best picture, which is how my current tv gets it's Bose signal, but now HDMI seems to have superceded S-Video. Therein lies an obstacle to be overcome.

Connecting bose 321 system to lg hd flat screen,bose receiver plays fm am ok threw speakers.tv will not play threw bose speakers.bose dvd plays sound ,but no picture


You will need a Component Video Cable
Connect the Red Green and Blue Connections from the TV to the Bose.

if your audio is coming from the TV, also connect stereo audio from the TV's audio out to the "TV" input on the bose.

if you want to hook up other devices (VCR, BluRay, etc) the video will go directly to the TV and audio will go directly to the Bose

Bose 321 DVD System


I love my Bose 321 DVD system, but a few days ago, it started acting weird. I put in a DVD, and it reads - "No Disc".....and I'm not sure why. I cleaned the disc, and I also played a DVD/CD Maintenance kit - I'm not sure what is wrong. It seems like I have a problem within the system - what can I do?
