Question about Bose Lifestyle 12 System

1 Answer

Volume will not turn down.

When I turn on my Bose system the volume is turned all the way up and I can not turn the volume down with the remote or the head unit. I need to turn the head unit off and on three or four times before it works right.

Bose system is just over 1 yr old, hooked up to Smart Tv ( same age) sound was working fine, turned volume down, no sound at all after that

Hi, You have a Bose Home Theater System hooked up to your television and I'm wondering if you're controlling the volume through the Bose Home Theater System or the television because both have a volume control and if you have the television volume turned down and you're using the Bose Home Theater System for volume or visa-versa then you're not going to get a decent sound. I hope you know what I mean...... CHEERS..

My bose system does not respond to the remote. It is a patio system. Inside works fine but I cannot turn the outside off or correct the volume. I just got a new remote- same problem

Maybe, just Maybe you could try turning the power off for the sub woofer, the zone next and then the Bose itself. Power up the woofer and zone before the Bose and it may pick it up, works when the Apple TV drops out

We just got a new Dish HD/DVR Receiver and need the remote code for the Bose remote control to operate it.

Here is what I did for my Bose Solo Tv to work on the Bell 9242 receiver.( see page 17 of Bell 9242 guide) 1. Hold down the aux button until all lights flash. 2. Press 2 to ensure Aux is set to audio. 3.Enter code 761 and press the pound (#) button. Now to have the satellite remote default volume to Bose Solo do the following. 1.Press and hold AUX # pound 3. Press the + side of volume 4. Press 0 5. Press pound ( AUX button will flash 3 times) 6. Press SAT mode 7. Test the volume on Bose Solo. (see page 22 of Bell 9242 guide)

Connect Bose System to Panansonic TV

in the tv setup menu there should be an item that will allow you to change the volume from variable to fixed on the output of the tv

The volume control on my Bose 38 lifestyle system will not adjust the system, with either the remote or the volume controls on on the console.

On a Bose 38, the volume will self adjust at start, and then you will be able to change volume using either radio remote, or buttons on main unit (the one with DVD).

If the unit is not responding , then there is a fault.

A fault where the Bose 38 is working (eg. you can swap from DVD to AUX on bose), but you cannot control volume (you do not see the values on main unit display) is rather unusual.

Ensure that you have correctly connected TV, receiver, or any other external device to the bose in Input, not in output from Bose.
If you have an HDTV, use the optical input on Bose, that is the only digital audio in on a Bose 38.

Check if the problem depends on connections, if it does not, let me know.
