This can be caused by either corrupt firmware, or bad connection between the front panel and main unit.

The firmware can be restored as follows:

Unpluck the unit from the mains.

Press and hold [STOP] & [SOURCE]

Plug unit into mains.

Continue to hold the two buttons until the recovery message appears on screen.

If the progress bar doesn't move at all within 5 minutes, then this is not the problem.

This problem can also be caused by the ribbon cable connection between the front panel and the main unit. Sometimes the problem can be cured by disconnecting both ends of the cable.

The firmware should still be ok in this case.

There are multiple processors in the WACS700 unit, and the problem occurs when they can't talk to each other.

An authorised service agent should be able to sort the problem with a replacement cable.

Philipss music centre can't power up


If the center wont power up, then its the power supply thats the issue. If it turns on and the screen says " Booting please wait " and does nothing else then internal hard drive is at fault. Hope this helps.

Phillips wac700 says booting up has not been used for a while


Hello
Just unplug the device from AC mains socket and replug it after 3 minutes and see whether it helps you. If not, a firware upgrade will be necessary. The supplied PC installer CD contains Media Manager [DMM] software. it will help you to upgrade for WAC700 center. For details see DMMs' help file. Refer to the manual CONNECT YOUR PC to learn how to install the software. OK.

How do you connect an ipod or mp3 to the waC700 wireless music centre?


Anything that has a headphone output can be adapted to feed an RCA cable pair for standard stereo to any audio device with a standard RCA input. Get a cable like the one described here:


http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10218&cs_id=1021804&p_id=665&seq=1&format=2


and connect it into any available analog input EXCEPT "Phono". Turn the MP3 player volume up.

Streamiun Wac700 CENTER says can't connect to center...help!


put units side by side and switch them both off. Plug in main unit, and using menu resort factory settings, then when it reboots, select language, and leave it there. Then connect the smaller unit and do the same thing (restore settings), they should then find each other.

Bose lifestyle fault code 802


Here's what the Bose support website suggests.  Good Luck!
Messages displayed during a Music Information Update
Messages may appear on your media center display during a Music Information Update. If you see a message with instructions to call Bose, and a three-digit code such as "Error Code 802" or "Failed 172" while performing a Music Information Update, it does not necessarily mean there's something wrong with the system. Performing a media center reset and installing the update again may address the issue.

To reset your media center, follow these steps:
  1. Turn the media center off. Wait two minutes

  2. Unplug the power cord from the media center. Wait 30 seconds

  3. Reconnect the power cord

  4. Wait until "Bose Lifestyle" disappears from the screen

Note: After a reset, you will need to wait several minutes before playing stored music (3 to 20 minutes, depending on how many CDs have been stored). All other sources will be available immediately after the system powers up.

If you have any additional questions about these messages, please contactBose® Technical Support or call 1-800-278-1281.
