Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

My Bose OE2 only have sound coming out from the left speaker, no sound from the right one. I know it's not the cable or the source since I've tried different combinations, and I really doubt it's the jack on the headphones. I live in south america where fixing these headphones is pretty expensive and my warranty expired a few months ago so that's no a viable option. I really need some help from someone so that I can fix them, if I cant find a solution they'll pretty much just end up tucked away in one of my drawers... Thanks in advance guys.

SOURCE: My cat chewed the wiring on my Bose in-ear headphones

Of course. Just peal off the main isolation and connect wires according to color of their individual isolation. You can just twist them and wrap them with duct tape or solder them and wrap with duct tape.

My cat recently chewed trough 220 Volts stereo power cord (fortunately unplugged) and trough speakers cable too. They work perfectly again after quick fix while my room has become off-limit zone to my cat. ;-)

Better get your tomcat fixed or find him a girlfriend unless you'd like to risk him getting killed when he starts chewing some power cord.

SOURCE: Jack / Cord problem

yes basically if you look at the jack end you should see where the join is it may unsrew then look at the wires in side and the looose one should be seen if not yu can get a new jack from most online electronics Maplin -RS- or any electronics supplier you will need to resolder the wires onto the new connector..make sure you keep the other snipped off connector for reference when resoldering new.. There are a few tips to soldering.. maker sure the wire is twisted before soldering and touch the wire to the solder tip then bring teh solder wire to the wire to tin (melt solder) the end then do the same with other wires. once the wires are tinned bring to plate on teh connector and touch wire to connector and then solder tip to where wire and connector are.. if you keep teh soldering iron on the connection to long you may melt the plastic jack surround so I usually use a metal jack type.. if it has three wires one is for left one for right and one earth..copy the old jack wiring and you should be ok.. Good Luck A

SOURCE: My headphone jack is bent and so the headphones barely work.

THE BEST WAY TO DO THIS IS TO GET THE REPLACEMENT JACK FROM AN AUDIO OR MUSICAL SUPPLIES SHOP.. ONCE YOU HAVE THIS CUT BACK THE CABLE OUTER SLEEVE TO SHOW THE CONNECTORS AND CABLES ON THE JACK..GET A SOLDERING IRON READY WITH SOLDER.. STRIP BACK A SMALL AMOUNT OT THE CABLE SLEEVE TO SHOW THE WIRES THEN STRIP BACK EACH OF THE CABLES AND TWIST THE ENDS SLIGHTLY..GET THE SOLDERING IRON HOT AND TOUCH THE WIRE TO THE END WHILST BRINGING TEH SOLDER TO THE WIRE TIP. IF TEH IRON AND WIRE ARE HOT ENOUGH A SMALL AMOUNT OF SOLDER WILL MELT ON TO THE WIRE TIP.. DONT HOLD THE WIRE TO LONG OR THE HEAT WILL MELT THE PLASTIC COATING., DI THE SAME FOR THE OTHER WIRE.THEN UNSREW TH NEW JACK YOU SHOULD SEE EITHER TWO OR THREE CONNECTORS MATCH UP THE NEW WITH THE OLD ON THE CONNECTOR AND SILDER ON ONE BY ONE THE SAME WAY JUST HOLD THE WIRE AND IRON TO THE PLATE AND HEAT WILL CAUSE THE SOLDER TO ATTATCH TO NEW CONNECTIONS..MAKE SURE YOU HAVE PUT THE SLEEVE ON THE WIRE BEFORE YOU SOLDER OR YOU MAY HAVE TO TAKE IT OFF AGAIN TO PUT THE JACK BAK TOGETHER..TAKE YOUR TIME WIT THIS AS IF YOU TRY TO HURRY THE SOLDEDRING PART IT CAN BE MESSY AND NOT TAKE PROPERLY AND CAUSE BREAKAGE AWAY LATER IF THE JACK IS PULLED.. ONCE THE WIRES ARE SOLDERED ON TURN OVER THE GRIPS AND IT SHOULD WORK FINE.. I USUALLY GO FOR THE METAL TYPE JACKS AS THEY ARE STRONGER AND EASIER TO SOLDER.. GOOD LUCK A...

SOURCE: The left earbud of my Bose in-ear headphones doesn't have sound

You probably need to replace the stereo plug on the end that goes into the jack. Most of them are molded on unfortunately but it can be done with a new jack and some soldering skills. There have been lots of people with the same problem on this site so there are already some good explanations of how to do this on here.

SOURCE: loose connection in Bose headphones

Cut the ******** and replace it with a new one. You will need to solder the wires on to the new one. Keep the old one, cut it open and it will tell you which wires go to which terminal.

Turned my tv on today and only 1 speaker working (left front). Yesterday all speakers were working fine. Have unplugged everything and set up again but still just the one speaker working. Any ideas?


Swop left & right speakers, if only the right speaker works, the ex left speaker is faulty, if the left side still doesn't work, the problem is the tv

I have a Bose lifestyle 38 and whenever I watch a show with a lot of background sound - ie music in a movie or crowds cheering for sports, it overwhelms the voices of the actors or the sports casters. How...


What makes background sound comes out from Bose lifestyle 38 system is because there is jack cable or a cable that has a jack mouth that brings out a mono sound is being inserted..

Mono cables, when inserted inside a wrong input,it's makes the sound comes out with a background noise just like the one you can hear from it now..it seems as if you are not using the right cable for connection..

To resolve these issue, you will need to use the right cable for connection, by doing these,you will get a clearer sound from you Bose lifestyle 38..

Also it can be from the settings inside the Bose lifestyle 38...So you will need to check both sides to resolve this issue..

You will need to use the manual to know the right cable and the right setting for clear volume..

You can download the user's guide from the below link..

I have a wireless speaker system that home base plugs into an external music source, can In somehow connect it to the Bose 3-2-1?


Yes, it can. The Bose rear panel has RCA jacks for right and left channel audio outputs. You'll need a connecting cable with RCA plugs on the Bose end, and whatever kind of input connector your wireless speaker system needs.

How can I hook up my Bose cinemate on my Philips HD tv when no there is no Audio out and I want to use it for my dvd player, cable box, and video systems?


You don't need to send audio TO a TV. I's a TV, not a source of anything. Many of us use monitors (no TV speakers). The Bose speakers are presumably superior to the TV speakers so whatever the TV is watching (cable/sat/dvd) shuld have its own audio.


Page 11.

If your TV does not have any audio output jacks, you can connect the CineMate™ speaker

system to the audio output jacks of another source, such as a DVD player or cable/satellite

box. However, you will hear sound only from the connected source through your CineMate
speakers.

I can not hear sound from right speaker but left speaker is normal. My source and wire is working properly.


Plug the speakers into a different source, and try them -- for example, a notebook computer.

It could be the case that your current source is "panned-100%-right", or somehow is "muted" on one output channel.

Bose cinemate no sound


Yes it will work coming straight off the dirctv box. What kind of tv do u have that doesnt have an audio out. I have had to actually use rca splitters to get sound from bluray and cable box because the new samsung led tvs only have optical out. Dont forget the unit not being used must be off or u will have 2 source sounds at one time playing.

No surround sound


It sounds like the speaker wires are mixed up or maybe a setting on the reciever is wrong. Verify your speakers are properly connected. you test speakers using a 9 volt battery or smaller.

To locate the problem...a) Cable
Test if right cable is ok, by interchanging the rt/left cables.

b) Test Bose right speaker
Connect the Bose right speaker to HK's left channel. Works? Then Bose right speaker is ok.

c) Test HK's right output by connecting the left Bose speaker to HK's right output.
Does not work?

1st thing I would try is to connect a different speaker to right output...if it works, that eliminates speaker problem. Then swap red and white audio input cables and hook them up backwards- connect red cable to white on both ends, and white to red...cable could be bad internally. Also try hooking another source to inputs, could be blown channel.
