Question about Bose Lifestyle 28 System

Volume Hi, The volume seems to be stuck. When using the remote you can see on the system that the volume level is going up (or down). It shows the level at 30, 40, 50, etc. But the volume coming out of the speakers does not change. The problem seemed to come out of no where. Hope someone can help.Thanks,tgunn

Re: volume

I had this problem and checked the main wire going from console to bass unit, it was loose from where I had moved the unit to insert another device (RCA Jacks). Apparently if the wire from the unit is loose, it over - rides the volume and by default adjusts it to 30. Additionally, I reset the system console and bass unit console, during this process. Try this, it might fix your problem.

I have a ge gtd 120 home theatre surround sound.for some reason, my volume is stuck on one level.. I haven't had a remote for it for a while, just used the knob to adjust the volume.someone plz help!

Unless the system has some kind of automatic volume control on it, that can only be adjusted by the remote. I think you might have a faulty volume/tone control circuit. These days many amps have a single IC that will control the volume. If that goes the volume can get stuck on one level. Since the control knob you are turning is simply sending a signal to that IC. So if the IC has died the signal is not being received.
If you want to repair it yourself just follow the wires back to the board from the volume control. You should see a large multi pin black box that if your lucky is marked on the board volume control.

Samsung 3d bluray volume keeps goind down by itself?

The volume down button on your remote may be stuck. Take the batteries out of the remote and try operating the player from the onboard buttons and see if that stops it. If it does then it will be the remote. If it doesn't, then it is the player.

Volume will not adjust

First, I would make sure the Mute hasn't been engaged. If that's not the problem, you might try the following: Press System on the LIFESTYLE® remote control. When you see a preview of audio features,
you can press the Enter button to move into the active list of audio options, and select "Input Levels". Once selected, the menu will run through the gamut of all the input levels. I would make sure that each of these levels is set at Normal. Other selections available are -6, -3, +3, and +6, but these are used to match sound levels of other components so when you switch from one input level to another, they are at reasonably the same sound level. navigate select

You will need to adjust the volume on the tv when using the box. The digital sound is different then the sound coming across on analog signal thus do not expect them to be at the same level. The box is not so dreaded, the picture quality is much better then what you get with analog.

Volume increases on its own intermittently

When the volume increased did the display show it doing so as if someone was turning the knob?  I mean did the volume go from like level 15 to 30 or did the unit's level stay constant while the audio volume increased?
Were you alone or sharing the room with a jokester who has a universal remote?
Does this problem occur when the batteries are removed from your remote?
Are you sure the 'volume up' button on the unit itself is disengaging properly after being pressed?

Hide the remote from the set for awhile and see if some sanity returns. If that's the case, service or replace the remote. (Check the batteries first...accordianman

Sounds like the system switch is broken. They use a piece of spring steel thats bent up to provide a snapping action (its very small). After years of continuous pressing the metal fatigue fails and breaks so there is nothing to keep the contacts apart. The most common button you will see this is in the volume up because its used the most. It seems that people usually adjust their volume up in more steps than lowering the volume as their ears adjust to the levels plus people tend to push the volume up button harder than the volume down.. There are a couple things you can do when this switch goes bad. There is probably a button on there that you dont ever use or could live without (loudness perhaps). You can take the good switch off that button and replace the volume button with it. You can do this by either desoldering them or by popping the clip off the switch and replacing guts. I have found it much easier to desolder them however because the small pieces are difficult to manipulate. If you dont want to lose the function of another button, you can try matching the switch with one from an electronics supply place like digikey, or go to a repair shop and ask them to replace the button or sell you a good button out of a broken face. Good luck!
