Question about Bose 3 2 1 GSX System

Disappearing sound, Low sound, no sound

Hi, I'm having volume troubles playing a DVD that go away when I play the radio. What happens: when I make almost any adjustment while watching a DVD (try to turn up volume, etc) the sound gets extremely low or goes off. If the volume is low like that and I turn the player off then on, it is still low. If the volume is low on the DVD and I switch to the radio, the volume is fine/high again, and if I then switch back to the DVD the volume is also fine/high again and stays that way until I try to make an adjustment. One wierd thing is that in some cases the volume of voices goes down low while the backround music stays high. I have changed the batteries in the remote and cleaned the player and remote to no effect. This problem happens with multiple DVDs. I would greatly appreciate any assistance anyone can offer. Thanks.

I have the same problem with mine and it is recurring, about every 15 minutes, the volume slowly goes down until their is nothing. Doesn't get fixed when I unplug from the wall either...

My panasonic dvd stereo system sa-pm91d when the volume is turned above 25, it plays distorted sound, it sounds like I have incorrectly tuned a radio channel even when using the auxiliary input

Hi Gusma,
If you have Distorted sound.
    These may be the causes of the problem:

  • Make sure the speakers wires are properly connected.Check the color codes, be sure they are rightfully followed.
  • - Shorting (bare wires touching) of positive and negative speaker wires.
  • - Using speakers with an impedance lower than that rated for this unit.
  • - Straining of the speakers through excessive volume or power.
  • - Using the unit in a hot environment without proper ventilation.
I am also including a link to the User Manual. Read it thoroughly.
Best of Luck,

Rear speakers do not work , also in set up menu they are grayed out.

hi there

when playing radio, the rear speakers do work because you have configured that. in your dvd player however, you may not have configured it yet.

Correctly insert the jacks at the back of the dvd player and at the same time, check the menu of your dvd player and check the audio settings. Under the audio settings of your dvd player menu, select the 5.1 or 6.1 audio profile.

hope this helps.

I have a Bose Lifestyle 35 Series II and want to know whether it's compatible with a DVD+RW. I'll burn it in a Toshiba recorder, finalize it and then play it on the Bose. Will it play?

Hi This what Bose say about formats

"The Lifestyle® 35 system plays DVD-video in interlaced format, as well as music on CD, CD-R (recordable) and CD-RW (re-writable). The system also plays MP3 files on CD and AM/FM radio. "

So by the sound of this i suspec that you may struggle with DVD/RW. but my best advice is try it.

While playing the DVD of Dark Knight on my 5.1 surround system last night, my audio system would simply turn itself off.  It seemed to happen during moments of extreme sound, i.e. explosions, gun shots,...

this is a common problem with this unit the main thing is a low grade capcitor that the manufacturers used which is known to discharge all of its power at once which it recieves a high signal output and tells the unit to shut down the solution is very technical but basiclly you gave to install a higher amp capacitor.
