My Bose 321 series II is not responding to the control remote commands. Everything else does (TV, VCR,etc), but the BOSE receiver does not.

Replace the batteries from the remote control. Press and hold the TV button on remote for 5 seconds. If the red light shines bright, your remote is OK since it is showing it's programmable side. If unit still won't go on using the remote, reboot the whole system by unplugging the power cord and other wire from the Subwoofer. Wait one minute, then replug all and see if the system displays BOSE 321 in front when re-connected. If so, try the remote and if that doesn't work, your dead, the Infra red communication device from the unit to the remote is busted inside the unit and needs to be returned to the company like mine!!!!!

Bose 321 Remote not working

Pull off the front panel, be carefull there is a ribbon attached. Detach the ribbon. There are 2 ribbons attached to the front panel, one that leads to the IR (remote sensor) and other for the controls on the top of the unit.

Most likely the ribbon that goes to the IR sensor detached itself, this is common if the unit is dropped etc. Insert the ribbons (2) re-attach the front panel and the remote should work fine. You'll notice some tape on the IR ribbon, I suggest using some stronger tape, BOSE tape thats not very good.

This happened to me on my 3-2-1 GS II system and fixed it.

Bose 321

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.
