Bose 123 system and Samsung LED TV problem.....

I have a Bose 123 system and new Samsung LED TV..... I am not sure what I need to get my Bose system working properly. I can get one out of the two Bose speakers to work when hooked up to the TV, but no picture and I am not sure how to go into the TV to fix this. What accesories do I need to get te system to work? Would an optical cable provide picture and sound, or just sound? Would an A/V source explorer do the trick? Please help!

Trying to hook up Bose AV 321 media system to Samsung LED TV model

You can use a Optical to Analog audio adaptor (found all over the internet for under $30). You'll also need an optical cable that goes between the adaptor and TV. Be sure to set the audio output on the TV settings to PCM audio output, otherwise there will be no output.

The speakers for my Bose 123 suddenly don't work for any source. It had worked well for years. Mute is off. What can I do?

It sounds to me like the Bose 123 is to blame not the speakers. I think you can test the speakers by connecting a 1.5 volt battery for a short while (few seconds) accross any of the speakers terminals. Disconected from the amp. If they are working it will go POP
If it's the Bose itself then the main amp inside has failed.

I am trying to hook by Bose 123 to my Panasonic Vestra 3d tv. I have the cable connected but I am not getting anything

To view a DVD in the Bose system on the TV, connect an HDMI cable (or composite-Yellow, Red, White) to the back of the Bose system (output) and the other end to the input on the back of the TV.

If you have a cable box or satellite and want to get the audio on the Bose system, connect an RCA (white and red) cable to the back of the Bose system (input) and the output on the back of the cable box/TV/satellite.

Switch channels on Bose as needed. Good luck!

Hello Mmlaird,


(because Bose is small & easy to carry around)...
((probably new & still under warranty))...
For the reasons stated... I would try the BOSE
first... (however)

"HUM' in an audio circuit (usu. listening to LINE
) is caused by TWO electrical conditions:
- Shabby wire routing
- CHEESY capacitors...

I have written a BOOK-FULL of complaints
about SAMSUNG'S quality ($$) decision to use
inexpensive ... CAPACITORS... (in my opinion).

Over the years... I have recognized that SAMSUNG
has become the poster child for bright pictures,
competitive prices... and high FAILURE RATES for
cheesy capacitors...

Good news...
Because of their competitive prices... They are
quite popular... SPARE PARTS... and REPAIR
kits on AMAZON (and litigation) bearing the
SAMSUNG name have been quite interesting...

... (as needed)...

By no means am I saying SAMSUNG is alone in these DECISIONS ... I'll only say BOSE is not a likely
candidate for MARGINAL PERFORMANCE, design

Your choice... (my opinion).

Hope I am helping

Need the remote code for Samsung 55" led tv 8000 series

You will not have any luck, The Screen only uses RF for control. As far as I know there is no IR receiver on the unit or any RS232!! A nightmare for integrating this product into universal control systems.
