    My remote was working fine but then it died I tried new batteries but nothing. Now what? This is the Bose remote. I can adjust from the unit itself but can't from the remote.

    I have the Bose 321 GSX System and my remote suddenly stopped working. I can use the system by accessing the buttons on the unit, but the remote doesn't work with it. I have changed the batteries but it doesn't seem to help. I could use any suggestions that anyone might have.

    The remote just stopped working. Changed the batteries and nothing. The red light on the remote does not light and it does not work the unit.

This may sound stupid but have you replaced the batteries in the remote? In either case if the remote is a universal remote (has different buttons usually across the top to select different devices) then the manual should give codes to reprogram it. If you cannot get it working with new batteries and reprogramming then the remote might have gone bad. If the remote does appear to be bad then I would just buy a new universal remote and program it for your equipment since they are not very expensive.

Philips htl2100/12 soundbar doesnt respond to remote control after plugging in


My soundbar won't power up. So I pull the battery out of remote, press a few buttons, put the battery back in and all of a sudden the device can be powered up and controlled. Until next time it stops responding. I replaced that original battery with a new one but the problem still persists.

No sound is coming out


Look for a button on the unit or remote for turning speakers on end off, Or when you go into the unit menu, Watch with the functions if it stays something about the speakers, Turnig them on or off, If you don,t come across any of this stuff, Get a manual for it, End see if you can find any thing about it in the manual, In the trouble shooting (Section) If you don,t have a manual for it, Try manuals online.com

The 'infrared beam' emitted by the remote is out of position inside the remote. You can actually 'bounce' the signal off the wall and it will work. Try moving the remote around the walls and hit the button. It will work at certain angels. You need to open up the remote and check the position of the little 'light' at the end of the remote. That's where the beam is emitted.Make sure it's pointing out. There is a little trick involving some aluminum foil under the bulb, a small piece (make sure it does not touch the leads) to concentrate the beam outward.

If your remote worked everything for a few weeks and then quit, and you are sure the codes are correct, take the remote back under the 1 year replacement warranty and exchange it. It is defective.

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!!!!!

Box was working, tv now back to analog


Sounds like the converter didn't make it. The symptoms you describe sound like the converter was working and then died. You may want to bring it back to store were you got it.

Drive tray stuck in open position


My unit just stopped working a few weeks ago and I am chucking it so, the unit is available for canabilizing.

I am pretty sure the DVD drive is fine since I was not using that when it died. I was listening to a football game with the TV on and using the audio through the system I think the power supply board died as nothing would work when I pushed a function button.

The remote works fine too so that is available as well as the manual.

I am currently using the existing speakers with a replacement unit, which is under warranty and I am burning in right now at near max volume.

I will be willing to send DVD player as it can be easily be removed from the unit if you want to pay shipping costs.

I bought a Zenith unit on black Friday from Circuit City for $79 with free shipping so I figured it would be as cost effective as trying to repair the RCA unit, plus I have a backup set of speakers.

Now I am looking for another low wattage 5.1 system to use in my retirement home in FL, since I have a spare set of speakers.

Home Audio Bose 48 - Remote not working


Had an issue with the Bose Remote RC38t1-27 not working at all. Changes batteries twice to no avail. Called Bose Tech support who walked me through the fix. I unplugged the power cord connected in the back of the system. Waited for 30 seconds or so and plugged it back into the system. Also made sure the power cord was uncoiled/unbundled as the RF (Radio Frequency) signal is within. Bingo!
