Question about Bose 3·2·1 II System

1 Answer

No audio with CD/DVD but works fine with aux and FM

I bought BOSE 3.2.1 GS Series II DVD Home Entertainment System
It has some problem with the DVD player
Its working fine for FM and Auxilary audio and vedio, but no audio if i play CD or DVD. I tried with BOSE 3.2.1 Setup DVD itself, vedio is OK but no audio.
I assume that connections are fine as it is working fine with FM and AXU inputs from my iPod.

I tried changing system settings for audio but no luck.

Re: No audio with CD/DVD but works fine with aux and FM

Check the cable between the media centre and bass module for signs of damage (if its buried in the wall / under the floor and you can't check it, assume it could be damaged).

however, this sounds like a fault with the Digital Analogue Converter - this coverts the digital audio on a disc to analogue information the amplifer can use to produce sound. Contact your retailer for exchange / repair.....

Can someone tell me how the picture is when playing a dvd to a hdry set. I heard it's not very good. Thanks John

Did you mean : playing a normal dvd on a HD tv? ....It will be fine. Check your dvd menu to see if it can upscale. If your using a huge tv you will notice some grain...but hopefully your not sat 2ft away!

OK! The cheapeast and most simple way would for you is to get a 1/8th inch conector jack that adapts into red/white RCA jacks (it will have a couple feet of wire in between the jacks) plug the 1/8 inch adapter into the jack on I-POD and the RED/WHITE ends into the back of your systems aux inputs RED/WHITE! OR tape input ect! make sure I-POD is turned up! and you may have to adjust I pod eq to get the best sound out of system! (OH you can get this adatper at any radio shack or wall-mart!)
