    Bose Remote just stopped working ... dead. Unit seems to work ok. Does anyone know why? (have tried resetting the unit by unplugging and restart)

    Mine stopped working. I unplugged the receiver and it still doesn't work.

    The manual controls on the receiver work, but the remote is dead.

Inside the remote is a ferrite antenna wrapped with a solid copper wire. Over time this large wire solder point cracks. I've had one that rattled. Carefully pry apart the remote and resolder.

The power off and on worked great for me - and all this while I was hurling abuses at the remote control :-)
Thanks

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.

Bose 3-2-1 Remote Control stopped working


I purchased a LAZBOY universal remote (at Fred Meyers, on sale for $9.99) and after a bunch of research and trial-&-error, was able
program it with a code (1629) which works reasonably well with the
Bose 3-2-1.

I don't have all the system-level functions (which I never utilized anyway) but do have all the basics as far as power, volume, source, and CD/DVD control.

I have same issue. This happened on 12/31/2007 after 13 months of operation. Though remote is not controlling the unit, it controls TV. I went to BOSE showroom (Chennai, India) and remote worked perfectly with their GS display unit. Then I went to service center. Serviceman promised me to send a CD with software upgrade. Let me wait for a day or 2 receive CD and test it. Have you got any solution.

Remote control of Bose WaveMusicSystem


First have the remote tested. You can buy a basic Infra-red tester at Radioshack for about $6. If the remote is putting out signal, the Bose will have to be serviced. Call them and get an RMA # and they will fix it for a flat rate.
