Question about Bose LifeStyle 50 System

Open Question

Music center control can't find room A on multi-room interface unit

I have replaced the batteries, assured all connections were correct, went to troubleshooting guide and followed instructions to reestablish link with the interface but still the A,B,C,D LED lights revolve continuously and can't find the proper room.  
The unit is receiving power, but any button I try to press under SOURCE just beeps back without doing anything.  I can't get the unit to come out of the OFF position either.  Maybe that is the bigger problem but it has new batteries in it.

Need to know why the grasslin Fm/1 Digi 20-L timer won't let me program it. I push reprogram button And it went back to just blinking the days of the week on top but won't respond to anything I push

Likely solution: Current time of day was set without holding down the timer (or clock symbol) key.

Other possibilities: Maybe the back-up battery is depleted and you need to connect timer terminals to correct power source ... these models vary 24V, 120V, 208-240V... look for markings on timer

More possibilities: Troubleshoot following link: This is older version timer.

How to replace a battery to First alert mod sa303

Follow the link above to download the user guide. There is a door that opens to the side of the device that contains the battery. The drawing is not very good. I believe the door is like a tray that holds the battery? Take care that the polarity is correct...often times 9V connectors will permit improper polarity connections which could harm the unit and destroy the battery. Fortunately, it's not usually too difficult, especially if you pull the unit down first so you can see better...good luck!

Bose lifestyle one room doesn't connect and the remote says it won't connect to media center

Look in the instruction manual and make sure that you have set the codes correctly, the house code for the remote, as well as the room code for the second room. Also check the batteries in the remote control, especially when the room as far away from the main room, the batteries need to be full in order to reach the center. I assume we talk about a wired system? When this is a wireless connection to the second room, it may need a reset, unplug and re-plug the wireless adapter, there should be a pilot light in the back of the wireless adapter, which should be green. If that does not help, call Bose.

Remote shows no response

I have just had a major problem trying to get the handheld (touch screen) music centre to communicate with the multi room interface. It took over a week to sort out by trial and error, but here is the solution :
1. Disconnect everything from the multi room interface apart from Room A and the CD player (blue connector).
2. Turn off the electricity supply at the wall (turning off any in line extension lead is not good enough - it needs to be at the wall socket). Leave turned off for at least 2/3 hours.
3. Turn back on and then leave it again for 2/3 hours.
4. Touch the music centre and you should find that it has now registered with the interface unit.
5. Connect the other rooms and input sources with the power switched on (contrary to instruction manual which advises you connect everything before powering up).
6. Test each input systematically as you connect them.

Hope this helps. I was on the verge of buying another multi room interface (I have 2 music centres and neither worked so assumed in was the interface at fault), at a cost of £200, so now glad I persevered with resetting the system !

Equity model 29002-1

Anon, replace battery with a good strong AA Energizer or Duracell Alkaline not a cheap battery, make sure battery contact point in clock are clean and no corrosion. If this does correct the problem, the clock mechanism is probably just wearing out from age which is normal unless it is digital. Read through the links and learn how some time mechanisms can be made to work properly again. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Had F70 &F71 changed ccu and ui won't power up just beeps

Even after they replacing the CCU and the MCU, I still kept getting the three beeps and the F70 Error... the fix was replacing the front controller boards (where the knobs and buttons are). check your connections also, and that they are in the proper slot.
