SOURCE: bose 321 system reads bad disc on all dvds

if will not read a laser lens cleaning disc , then it will need to be opened up and the laser lens will need to be cleaned manually with the cleaning solution and a cotton tip , but do it easy and dry the lens with the cotton tip
if that don't do it then the laser mechanism will need replacing

SOURCE: how do i get my playstation 3 to connect to my bose 321 system?

Very simple. Red and White RCAs into any available input on the back of the 321. If the PS3 A/V cable can't separate the audio from the video (yellow RCA) by length of cable then get an RCA extension.
You can also connect this digitally with an optical cable (better sound) but you need to assign the optical cable to an input from your system menu. Your system menu can only be displayed on the TV from the video out of the 321. Go to "media center" and then down to "optical source"

SOURCE: connecting bose 321 system to lg hd flat screen,bose receiver plays fm am ok threw speakers.tv will not play threw bose speakers.bose dvd plays sound ,but no picture

You will need a Component Video Cable
Connect the Red Green and Blue Connections from the TV to the Bose.

if your audio is coming from the TV, also connect stereo audio from the TV's audio out to the "TV" input on the bose.

if you want to hook up other devices (VCR, BluRay, etc) the video will go directly to the TV and audio will go directly to the Bose

I have a friend with a 321 system. He says it


Unfortunatley no, its not software that reads dual layer discs, its hardware. I sold Bose for 2 years and do not know of any Bose items that will read dual-alyer discs. Dr. Bose has a hard time keeping up with technology sometimes. Other than that, the 321 is a great system!

Dvd player always says "no disc " when i play it...ed...


First try running a CD/DVD player cleaner disc thru the unit, you can find them at Walmart, Target, etc. Get one that uses fluid. If your lucky, it's just dusty and needed cleaned. If it's still inoperative, you need to send it to Bose for service. They will swap out the transport for a new one and you will get many more years of service out of it. Just occasionally clean it. The repair will probably run 100-150. You can call Bose support for average pricing for transport repair and they should give you at least a ball park estimate. Hope this helps

DVD won't play


had the same issue, Bose 18 played no problem for 2.5 years and then started acting up.
sometimes power reset helped sometimes not.
finaly go tired of it and took the system apart.
Inside is little customized toshiba dvd ide drive set as master.
Same as in normal computer but with different front so works in Bose.
Took apart DVD and cleaned with the laser lens with windex.
Works perfectly now.

I took the long run. If somebody has dentist mirror and some precise tools maybe you can reach the lens without taking everything apart.
maybe somebody sells special disc for cleaning lenses?

I hope this helps.

Bose wave system


Greetings gaddman43,

Unfortunately your only option might be to deal with the mfg, unless you are handy with electronic repairs. It sounds like you maybe having an issue with possibly several components (i.e. Lens, Drive Motor, Main board) there just arn't any consumer accessories to correct the problems.

You could try a local repair facility that would work on Bose products they should be able to provide basic information on necessary repairs. Even though its an american model the parts should be similar.

Hope this helps.

Problem with my Bose 321


I had the same problem listed; send an email to BOSE tech support - they sent me a DVD with a bios upgrade and it fixed the problem. They should put the BIOS upgrade on their website so you could burn your own DVD rather than waiting for the mail. But it did fix the problem. Netflix disks were the worst; they must do something when they burn them to get that forced Ad to play that Bose doesn't like.

Bose 321 DVD System


I love my Bose 321 DVD system, but a few days ago, it started acting weird. I put in a DVD, and it reads - "No Disc".....and I'm not sure why. I cleaned the disc, and I also played a DVD/CD Maintenance kit - I'm not sure what is wrong. It seems like I have a problem within the system - what can I do?
