The 3.5mm jack on your Soundlink may have either factory or man-made defect.This can be fixed by any qualified Bose service personnel.

SOURCE: No Video or Audio on HDMI on Sony STR-DG800

I dont have the exact model you do, but on my sony receiver I have to enter the setup menu and define where the input is for the device I am using. For example I have to tell the receiver to use the optical audio input instead of the RCA Stereo. Otherwise its on default.

Also, you do know this model of reciever offers only pass-through audio on HDMI? that means no surround sound!!! Thats really silly but thats the specs for this model. To get surround you'll have to use optical. otherwise , with HDMI through this sony you are adding an extra component to tyour system with no benefit other than maybe power amplification.

SOURCE: hooking Ipod to onkyo receiver

i pods use a different adapter for doing this. It plugs in the bottom using the big porton bottom and outputs the rca plugs this way. Ipods see too much resistance and protects the unit from burning out. check this out http://www.amazon.com/Logic3-iPod-RCA-Phono-Cable/dp/B00083D7WC

SOURCE: 8' Optical Cable from TV to Receiver and Signal is Breaking Up

Before you buy anything try checking the AUDIO Settings in the Menu of Each Device (Mostly TV) and see if they are set to PCM or BITSTREAM. HDMI is mostly set to PCM while Optical is generally Bitstream. The TV may be set to the opposite of what it needs to be. I would try to get PCM to work first cause it is Better, If not then set what you can to Bitstream and it should pass. Also check in TV Menu for SOUND OUT or AUDIO OUT or SPEAKERS. Some TV's have a problem passing Audio through when they are already Outputting them to it's own Speakers! I Hope this Helps out!

My bose mini sound link will not charge


This could be as simple as a battery. Check that with a voltage meter. If you replace it this will probably be fine.

It may be expensive to have someone replace the connector. One option is to squirt some silicone around the base, being careful to still allow contact to be made to the iPod dock connector. You could get a dock extension cable (see link below). It may fit better and will reduce the strain on the Bose connector. If it's still loose, you could glue the extender cable in.

Alternatively, you could use a 3.5 mm audio cable to connect the iPod headphone jack to the Aux-in jack on the back of the Bose. Just living with it may be prudent.

I have a composite AV cable, but i can't connect it between my bose lifestyle 48 and my Macbook air, i mean sound from itunes doesn't works


Just take an audio cable with on one side a 3.5 mm (headphone) plug and on the other side 2 normal audio phono plugs.

Plug the 3.5 mm side in the headphone output of your MacBook and put the other side in one of the inputs of the Bose system.

I have a turntable with a connect that has a double male (large size) connector but a Base which wants a single small male to fit the AUX input. Is there an adapter I can use?


I assume you mean that the turntable uses 2 RCA output jacks and the Bose shelf system has a 3.5 mm AUX input jack. Since you have the RCA audio cable, get a RCA F/F to 3.5 mm adapter. Here is a link to one: http://www.cyberguys.com/product-details/?productid=21319&rH=1601 . If you want to just have a single cable, RCA M/M to 3.5 mm M audio cables are available, http://www.cyberguys.com/product-details/?productid=2706&rH=1095 . If you have 1/4" outputs on the turntable, you need to get a different adapter or use a combination. I don't know of many vendors for the 1/4" adapters these days.

I hope this helps.

No sound


To answer this one, we'll need a lot more information. The following

1. Verify your cable. There's no way to post a picture so we'll try this in text. Looking at the 5-pin DIN (called P1) with the pins to the top, number them 1 through 5 from left to right (regardless of how they may be numbered on a connector as it is unmarked on the cable). Looking at the 8-pin mini DIN (called P2) with the key at the top, number the top row 1 through 3 (left to right in all cases), the middle row 4 through 6 (pin 6 will be the one separated by a gap from the other two), number the bottom row 7 and 8.

Now, make sure that continuity exists. This is how my cable was wired as follows: P1-1 to P2-7, P1-2 to P2-8, P1-3 and P1-4 to P2-6, P1-5 to P2-1. If you do not show that each wire is good, then you either have a damaged cable or audio is not being output by the Bose control unit or your system uses a different cable wiring, which means that you will need to verify that your cable connects each 5 pin DIN to some on the 8 pin mini DIN

2. Make sure that a headphone is not inserted in the headphone jack on the side. If it is, then sound in not connected to the rear ports. It may sound silly, but someone may have connected headphones and nobody realized that they're still connected.

3. Do you have an oscilloscope? If so, then you'll need to insert wires into the 8-pin mini DIN connector for the zone you're using. Using the pinouts from step one for the cable connector will create a mirror at the Bose jack as follows, left to right, top to bottom 3, 2, 1 - 6, (gap) 5, 4 - 8, 7.

Audio comes out at pins 7 and 8. So connect your scope at those points and ground the probe by clipping it to one the RCA shields. Turn the unit on and make sure that you have a source producing signal, such as a disc or a radio station and see if you see signal. The output at these pins appears rather low, so you set your scope sensitive enough.

My Bose produced audio, but also clicking at an increasing frequency and amplitude as the unit heated up, that results in a lot of noise. I verified the wiring and output with this method.

I want to connect my computer audio out "green audio cable" into my Bose 3-2-1 "audio in" jack so I can hear the computer sounds. How do I do it and what do I need to buy?


The audio output jack on the computer (green) takes a 1/8-inch stereo plug, also called a mini-stereo plug. On the Bose rear panel, the audio inputs are red and white RCA jacks. So you need an adapter cable with suitable plugs on each end. Radio Shack sells a couple of them in different lengths. Here's a link to one of them so you can see what it looks like.

All you need to do is plug in the cable at each end, select the rear audio input source on your Bose, and you're in business. Make sure you have the computer volume set to its full level in the Windows sound settings so you'll get the best performance.

If you need a copy of the Bose owner's manual for reference, you can find it here at Bose.

Bose wave no sound


Unfortunately Bose will not release their schematics or parts lists, effectively giving them a monopoly on repairs. According to their web site, www.bose.com, they will repair most Wave radios for $100 or give you $200 credit towards the purchase of a new set. Check your options before you spend the big bucks though. A new HD radio, with better sound and a MUCH lower price, might be a better choice than repair of a problem prone Bose.

Bose 3-2-1 to a computer?


If I understand the question right are you trying to hear sound from your computer through your bose system? If you are then you need to hook a 1/8 mm headphone jack style cable on one end to the headphone jack on computer and on the other end of the cable you need a standard red and white rca type connection that hooks to back of bose system for sound. This cable is called a mini to rca stereo cable the pin connection for the computer has 2 little black bands around the plug there are 2 bands for 2 channel stereo sound.
