Question about Bose RC-18S Remote Control
I have a Bose 321 system which my husband installed many years ago. The remote control, up to a few days ago, has worked perfectly. TV turns on, Cable turns on, volume works ... however, the remote will not change the channels any more! The Cablevision remote will change the channels but not the volume, so I'm currently using both remotes.
What could have caused this problem to occur? Unfortunately, my husband died so I have no one to ask.
The blue communication light on the media center does light up when I try to program a channel, but nothing happens. I feel so LEGALLY BLONDE because I can't figure it out. HELP!
Try cleaning the side of the pcb where the rubber buttons rest on with a q tip soaked with acetone. You can also use methylated spirit. If this does not work, then there is probably an open circuit in the pcb or a component is not functioning. You need a multimeter and some knowlegde of electronics to test the components.

I had a similiar problem with the Bose Remote for Lifestyle 3. The Remote Just didnt work ,other than on/off.I had to stand infront of the system to make it work. Solution:- "Turn Off" all the electronic equipment near your bose system or connected to your bose ( TV, Hifi, Iphone , wifi ,xbox, Wii etc ) and then just "TURN ON" the Bose alone and try the remote...it should work fine. Then start each device one at a time followed by testing the bose remote the same time. I found out that once i "Turned On" the TV the Bose Remote failed to work. The TV was inteferring with the remote as both of them work on around 40Hz...Try it ...it just might solve your problem

I got my bose remote to work when I did a system update on the remote. Turn the TV on. Select the TV video input that connects the system. On the control console, press and hold setup until the system information screen displays. line 5 will display the currently installed console software version. on the remote press any button. Line 10 will display the currently installed remote software version. Do a bose system update. On the control console press setup. on the remote control, press the down arrow until update is highlighted and press ok. make sure yes is highlighed and press ok. on the control console plug a clean usb drive into the usb port.when prompted, remove the usb drive and connect it to a computer. open the drive and double click on the download_launcher file, which should bring you to an update page on bose.com. Once complete, put it back in the control console. When the update is complete remove the usb.

If I am lucky, I get 3 days with a brand new set of batteries. Actually, I rarely ever use my system for that very reason. the irony is i chose this model based on the radio frequency feature. . .what a fiasco.
