Question about Bose 3·2·1 II System

1 Answer

DVD Issues I have two bose 3-2-1's. Playing a new disk on one of them, it froze up on Chapter 14. Took Disk out, it was hot, put it back in went to same chapter FROZE. Took it upstairs to the new 3-2-1 again chapter 14 froze. Got BOSE on the line, when through rebooting, same thing on both. Bose is now sending me two new units. I went to the store bought another DVD same one, thinking it might be a DVD issue. Did the same think IT WORKED, just stopped at that point for maybe 1/10th of a second. So now I am thinking it was the DVD. I have had intermittent DVD freeze up, but that could be the DVD....

    We are getting our third Bose 321 GS system in less than 4 months. Everything works fine and we have no complaints..until you play a DVD. The DVD freezes up. It freezes up on new DVDs, rental DVDs and hardly played DVDS. Sometimes a DVD will actually finish and you will think "problem solved". But the next time you play a DVD movie, it will freeze between the middle to the end of the movie. Very frustrating as you constantly have to reboot by unplugging and you still can't view the end of a movie. We have taken some of the DVDs that froze and played on neighbors more inexpensive players and they work fine. If we have a problem with the new (the third) replacement 321 GS System we are getting this week...we will be done ever owning any Bose products. Bose has the audio down but not video. We will be exchanging for another theater system.

    Bose will not acknowledge any problem... What do you do.. Go to the attorney general in your state, start a class action suit? I see more website entires, blogs etc... I have two systems and paid $$$$ to wire it up to SAT etc.... Bose wants me to send both units back for replacement. WHY, I would get the same issues???

Unsupported format read cd dvd when it read if before?

Sometimes cleaning the disk will solve the problem. Also resetting the system by pulling the power cord and putting it back in can solve the problem. If this does not help, then sometimes updating the system with the latest software can help. Just call Bose and ask for an update disk. Last but not least if nothing works, send the unit to Bose for repair.

Eject disk

If your cd is stuck in the Bose you may have to open up the cover any manually remove this disk, make sure not to put it back in. If you are unable to remove this yourself you will need to get some one qualified to do this procedure for you. Be careful not to break anything take your time and put everything back as you took it apart.

I have an older 3 2 1 system that will not play any dvd's. Says "Bad Disk". Always has been a little particular when it comes to playing dvd's but now it won't play any- new or rented. Any ideas?

Have you ever done a software upgrade? I have the same system and I had issues with certain disks. After a call to the BOSE tech support line, they sent me a software upgrade disk that took care of the issue. Worth a try.

Constant disk read issues

It sounds like your laser is going bad. This is a common issue for the PS3. The tell-tale sign is it starts reading less and less and having more errors.
