You'll need the remotes manual to reload the codes, if you don't have it try downloading it from the manufacturers website

Remote control device doesn't work. New


Read this procedure to possibly fix the remote:
http://remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=Display&contents=help_deadremote&uuid=A12963989782821
They also sell replacement remotes.
Zoom in on the picture of the original remote provided on the site (or look at your own) and get the actual remote model number.

or check eBay: search for "(model of the device or the remote) remote", check the 'include description' box. Usually cheaper than the vendors.

Tip

Remote not working. Remotes can be saved.


Ok, your remote is not working and you have replaced the batteries and it still does not want to work for the device that you are trying to control. I have listed a few tips below that may be of some help to you; these are all considering you have the original remote that shipped with the unit that you are controlling.
Sometimes the chip inside can become overloaded with commands and lock up the processor.
The remote can be saved.
1. Remove the batteries and press every button on the remote control and then install new, not the batteries you took out, but new batteries and see if that works.
2. If step one does not work, then you can remove the batteries and unfold a small paper clip and bend it into a U shape and use it to touch the contacts on both ends of the battery contacts together and clear the memory.
3. If your remote is still not working then it is time to test the remote control, if you have a camcorder or a digital camera, and a cell phone will work. Point the remote at the device and press any button, you should be able to see the IR (Infrared LED) lighting up on the display.
If after all of these procedures are followed and you still do not have command of the device that you need to control. You still have more options.
Either replace the remote control with a new or compatible one, I use 1-800-remotes, www.remotes.com.
Or have the device that you are trying to control diagnosed by a technician and see if the remote IR receiver in the unit is damaged. Unfortunately there is no simple way to test the remote receiver, and 90% of the time the remote will fix the problem.
I hope that this helps you with your remote issues and as always, Thank you for using FixYa.

How do you sync a Bose remote with the model # rc38t1-27


How do I sync my bose 321 remote back to the receiver

1 Answer

I have a new ESTR 200 that has been in a closet for a couple of years. Very little seems to function well. The presets will not hold if I turn the system off or if I turn to another function. Record...


I assume we're talking about the Element ESTR200...

A turntable will not work with this receiver unless the TT is already preamplified. No Phono Preamp in this unit.

Presets:

From the manual...

Store a station
1. Press the FM/AM button on the front panel (or
the AM/FM button on the remote).
2. Select the station you want to store in memory
by the methods described above.
3. Press the MEMORY button on the remote
While "MEMORY" is glittering, press number
buttons on the remote for the station.

If the Memory indicator on the display turns off before you preset the station selection, Press Memory again.

Manual preset
1. Select the band wave by pressing FM/AM
repeat.
2. Turn to a radio station(see "Manual tuning" on
page 8 in details).
3. Select a group (A- D) of preset stations. This
group will be displayed on the front panel.
For example: "A".
4. Press MEMORY on the remote control.
"MEMORY"will appear on the display.
5. While the word "MEM" appears, input your desired preset number (1-8 ) by using the numeric keys on the remote control to store the radio station. For example this number is "1", the station is stored as "A1".
NOTE:
A new setting can cover the former one.
This memory is kept before next reset.

Retrieving preset stations
1. Press FM/AM button on the front panel or the
remote control to select tuner mode.

2. Press A/B/C/D button on the front panel or the
remote control to select the group of preset stations that you require.
3. Press the numeric keys on the remote control to select the number of preset station that you require. Station selected is displayed on the front panel.
4. By the same way, you can select other stored
stations.
---

The remote control does not operate the unit.
-Another function is selected on the remote.
Press the correct function button.
-No batteries installed. Install the batteries before
using the remote.
Be sure "+" and "-" marks of each battery match the symbol on the inside of the remote battery compartment.
-The batteries are exhausted. Replace all batteries.
-The remote is not pointed at the remote control sensor on the main unit or there is an obstacle between the remote and the main unit.
-The remote control is too far away from the main
unit, move closer.

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!!!!!

Bose link AL8 connection problems


I had a similar problem, though intermittent, using my 48 with the AL8 and room-mate speakers. I kept getting a "no signal received from media centre" message on the remote in the second room.

Assuming that the batteries are ok and you don't have a hardware problem, the problem might be that the 48 is not picking up the signal from your remote control in your second room. The signal from your remote control is a radio signal that goes directly to the 48 - it doesn't communicate via the AL8 receiver. I think the orange light will only turn green once a signal is being transmitted from the transmitter unit plugged into your 48 media centre, and this won't start transmitting until the media centre gets a signal from the remote telling it to switch on.

The aerial for all the remote controls is contained in the power cable that links the 48 lifestyle unit to your VS-2 unit. Make sure that this is uncoiled and oriented vertically, as far away from other cables as possible.

If this doesn't work, you can get an antenna extender that plugs into the RC socket on the back of the lifestyle system. Again, orient this vertically. You can get these from Bose.

Is there anything in the wall that might be blocking the radio signal? Lots of metalwork for example?

If orienting the power cable from the VS-2 doesn't do the trick, I suggest that you go to a local Bose shop. (An actual Bose shop, not just an electrical or hifi store stocking Bose products). I explained my problem and the tech guy gave me an extender gratis (its basically just an FM aerial wire by the look of it). I installed it this morning and, so far, its seems to be working ok. As my unit is fairly new, he also offered to have the kit back in the shop to check it all out and, if that didn't work gave me Bose technical support number. He even offered, if all else failed, to send a guy out to my home to get it working - and I didn't even buy it from there!

Hope this helps.

Can't get remote to work


Since you don't know which end is defective, you might take the remote to about any store that sells and services consumer gear; they will have a primitive sensor that can detect if the remote is putting out some infrared but the common type of detector cannot tell you if the coding is correct or not.
If you find though that the remote is putting out anything at all, it is probably working properly.
Unfortunately that will mean that the receiving end is bad and that will be more costly to have repaired.
