My remote will not cut on my Bose Cinemate system. I have changed the batteries in my remote and the red light on the receiver is illuminated, so I know the system is operational, . I've also unplugged...

It seems to be a common misconception that the remote is necessary to turn a device on. All devices have hard-wired power controls. Does THAT work? It is unclear which device (remote or the Cinemate) is malfunctioning. If the Cinemate won't turn on by its own power switch the remote won't magically bypass whatever the problem is.

The Cinemate Manual offers some steps to take if it won't turn on, as well as other guidance.

Won't turn on after power outage, is there a reset button?

Was it a simple outage or a surge? You may have something as simple as a blown fuse. However, before opening the set, make certain it is unplugged. Better safe than sorry.

After receiving information and suggested actions from FixYa it was able to determine that most likely, a power outage and surge had caused the speakers need recalibrating. It was a simple task which utilized the remote, now it works fine.

Yamaha RX-V995: Remove On Screen Text

Here is a dumb try :). Connect your video source directly to the TV/projector, bypassing the receiver from inserting any messages.

If you are probably going to HD sometime, you would need to do that eventually as 995 doesn't have HDMI/Digital Video switching.
