Check to ensure that the speaker connection plug is fully inserted into the speaker jack on the computer. Do the same for the power connection at the speaker, too. Slightly wiggle or twist the connections and wires - one at a time to isolate the source of the failure (can be the power plug or wire, audio plug or wire, or even the jack on the PC . If related to the speaker plug, try using the speakers in another speaker jack on the PC - or other device (mp3 player, etc.) if the problem is still present on both locations, it is related to the speakers / power. Try using a pair of headphones plugged directly into the speaker jack on the PC to see if the problem is present still. If the problem is common to both speaker and headphones, the jack on the PC is likely the culprit, and a new sound card will probably have to be installed. Otherwise, replace / repair the speaker cable, plug or system.

The likely source of the problem is a stretched wire along the cord - or at the plug. A repair can be attempted if desired - or replace the speaker system if lacking tools or if unsure how to go about it.

No sound from bose 321


You need to localize. Play a DVD, does the same audio cutout happen? Do you have the center dvd or the left mounted dvd? The console unit has input jacks for external audio inputs, put an external audio source in and see if the same cutout occurs. See if the external output jacks lose audio or just the system speakers, including subwoofer. This may help localize which unit has the problem.

Is the console stacked above or below other electronic units, it may be a heat related cutout? Reseat all your interconnect cords, I have seen corrosion occur on the square connectors.

These are expensive to have repaired, good luck. If you're daring enough, you make find free service manuals on websites like Elektrotanya, hifimanuals, hifiengine, and eserviceinfo (.com)

I recently installed a lg SP60NB50 Ultra Slim Portable DVD Writer for my HP Touch screen windows 8 laptop.It said I dah to download more sodtware at a cost, in order to play dvd rom. What can I do to make...


One of the little known "features" of Windows 8 is the removal of Windows Media Center which in previous versions of Windows was included. Windows Media Center allowed you to watch DVD's without having to download and install any other software. However the following link is a great article on apps that will allow you to watch DVD's on your new laptop:

What's a surround sound?


Surround sound is the main reason peoplepurchase themselves media centers. . Dolby Digital isthe common surround sound standard. The DVD manufacturers encode each DVD with5.1 channels of discrete Dolby Digital audio, which your receiver then decodes.The format creates a rich audio soundstage that brings movie soundtracks tolife with crisp dialogue, realistic-sounding special effects, and deep bass.

Speakers work only on DVD


You might have connected your TV/Stereo Receiver up to the wrong audio outputs of the DVD player. Make sure you are coming out of the FRONT left/right audio outputs and not the CENTER?REAR left/right audio outputs.

Problem getting home theatre sytem to play audio when watching tv


you need the red and white audio cable hooked into the AUDIO OUT connectors on the tv and the other end of the red and white cables into the AUDIO IN in tv to the media center (main Bose unit).....If your tv does not provide AUDIO OUT connectors, you cannot connect the tv audio to the 3-2-1 system. Continue using your tv speakers for sound.

BOSE LIFE STYLE SYSTEM SOUND (AUDIO) GOES QUITE FOR A SECOND


This was posted a while ago, so I'm sure it's probably been solved by now. For anyone with audio issues using this or any other Lifestyle system: If you experience audio problems (no audio, intermittent audio) from more than just 1 source (especially if it involves internal sources like DVDs or the radio) then just reset this by unplugging the power for about 30+ seconds from the bass module and the media center DC power. Check the audio input cable (multi-pin din going from the media center to the bass module) for bent pins.
If this doesn't solve the problem, you could try replacing the input cable, but those are usually pretty robust. You could call Bose at 800-367-4008 for tech support or to set up a repair if this fails.

Connecting media center to receiver


Hey there,

Okay let me start with your pc setup. What type of sound card are you using? Are you using onboard? You have to check and see if the sound card or device you are using supports SPDIF passthrough. Basically this does just what it says...passes the surround sound signal through your hardware with no onboard decoding and uses the decoder found on your stereo. I use a soundblaster Audigy and i had to enable passthrough in the audio console. I also had to enable spdif as my default audio playback device. This is in Windows Vista. You also need to go into properties and set the formats your receiver supports. Once that is complete you need to adjust the audio settings in media center and select toslink as your audio output and select 5.1 audio.

Things should work now...BUT...you will only get surround sound audio when watching a source that has dolby 5.1 or DTS. You will not get surround sound in games =( When i watch ota hd shows that have dolby audio, the blue light kicks on in my receiver and i get 5.1 audio. Same goes for watching DVD's. I hope this helps you out

Hi Every one.

Had same problem with my HDMI connection on my sony bravia and sony theatre system, resolved by conecting a scart lead from the theatre system to one of the free scart sockets on the back of the TV, leave your HDMI connection in place as the DVD signal comes from this,

hope this helps!
