If resetting this system and re-seating the interface (box with light) to the bass module doesn't fix this, you may need a new interface module. This sells for about $40-50 from Bose. If this is under it's 1-yr warranty, they should be able to replace this for free.
So just incase you haven't tried it: 1. Unplug the power cord from the bass module (sub-woofer) along with the interface module and wait at least 30+ seconds. 2. Re-connect the interface first- screw it in as tight as can be. 3. Re-connect the power cord, and try the remote again.
This is really the only solution, and it's exactly what their tech support will have you try. That's the one functionally weak point with that system, that little module needs to be adjusted and re-seated from time to time.

If you can't get this to work, I suggest you try to return the remote and buy and harmony remote. For me it worked very well with everything including old audio amps and you can configure your own activities.

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.

Press and hold the AUX button until all mode button back lights come on, thenrelease.

Use the number buttons to enter the code for your Bose Cinemate Digital HomeTheater System. These are the codes we currently have: 656, 761, 639, and 664.

Bose Cinemate green led won't come on.


Do the same thing by unplugging the power, but also unplug the interface module (box with red/green LED light) from the sub woofer / bass module, and wait 30+ seconds. Plug the interface module back in first, and screw it in as tight as possible. Then plug the power back in and try the remote. This should fix your problem. :)
If this doesn't fix it, you will have to purchase/replace this module through Bose. (anywhere from $40-$60 if not under 1-yr warranty.) If you're still under warranty, it's a free replacement.

No green led light on bose cinemate system


I had the problem, after a lightning surge through our house, that destroyed item connected to the telephone lines. The Cinemate interface unit stayed red (powered), but could not get green light to come on, and obviously no audio. Found through Bose tech support that the the units are failing from surges "too often". They are trying to find out why and fix the longterm problem. Tell them you had a power surge (which you likely did), the green light won't come on, but the remote works with TV, etc. They will send a UPS Return Tag for you to send back the small interface unit (only). Upon receipt, they will 2-day air you a new one. It solved the problem.

Unit will not power on


Unplugging it (for only a couple of min.) worked for me.  Press AUX, then ON.  Green light came on after I did these steps.
