Bose 321 system fails to play DVD

My Bose DVD 321 system will no longer play DVDs, instead the system seems to get stuck and the picture flickers vertically. To top it off, whatever picture peaks through the rapid scroll is black and white. On some DVDs it gets stuck prior to attempting to play the movie starting, and gives an error message about entering a parental control password--which we've never set. The flickering is so severe that we can't navigate to the menu or settings. We've tried rebooting and thorough cleaning...no luck. Any answers?

SOURCE: movie skips and freezes during play

This is a common problem on CD and DVD players.

Altini is correct to a point. You can try taking the top case off, removing the DVD drive and taking the top off of the drive. Then use a q-tip on the laser lense. I use a little squirt of windex on the q-tip. Gently clean the lense even if it doesn't look dirty. Make sure you very gently work the lense up and down through it's travel. This will make sure no dust or dirt is interfering with the lense focusing.
Reassemble and try your movies again. This is a 50 50 proposition. If you still have the same problem, the mechanism has likely gone bad. Time for a new DVD player.

SOURCE: Error Message H07 - what is it?

The last time I opened up my Panasonic DVD-CV52, I looked at the little white bush on the motor spindle, it has a small spring which presses against the side of the bush. I can see no purpose for this spring/bush other than to provide some drag to the motor. Anyway, I removed the spring, so that the bush would no longer drag against the shaft, that was a few years back, and I haven't had a problem since. Of course a temporary solution is to oil the bush!
The www.ledcar.com/pdvdh07/ link mentioned above provides an excellent pictorial guide to disassemble and reassemble the player.

SOURCE: Bose 321 won't turn on

I'm amazed at the range of comments regarding this system; they range from unbridled enthusiasm to some **** words.
Before I try to help, if I am not familiar with a specific model but have a clue to what the nature of the problem might be, I research the item to see if I find some support for my suspicion.
You might keep tabs on some comments I found relating to a possible class-action lawsuit due to the array of problems that have appeared with this system.
This link will give you a sample of them:

Have a Bose 3-2-1 Series III. When I put in a DVD, I get sound through the Bose but no picture on my Pioneer TV. This is the second time it has happened. The first time it, we managed to get it going...


Here are 3 things to try and an if all else fails at the end.

1) Make sure the TV is set to the correct Video Input to see the video from DVDs on the Bose system.
• Make sure a DVD is in the disc tray.
• If the TV is connected to the media center using the HDMI cable:
Switch from one Video Input to another and then back to the original input.

2) Turn everything off, then:
Turn on the TV and set the TV Video Input for the Bose system video.
Turn on the Bose system and press DVD.

3) Turn off both the TV and the Bose system and then:
Unplug the HDMI cable from both ends.
Disconnect the power cables from both your TV and the Bose 321 system.
Re-connect power to the TV and to the Bose 321 system.
When the Bose 321 system startup message disappears from the display,
re-connect the HDMI cable to the TV then Bose 321 system.
Turn on the TV first, then turn on the Bose 321 system.

If all the above fail then disconnect the HDMI cable that connects the TV to the Bose 321 system and reconnect the two using a Component cable, an S-Video cable, or the Composite cable provided with the system.


Please leave feedback

The color is off on my Bose 321 DVD player. Pictures have a red tinge, and seem to be missing the blue tones. The television displays great color except when playing DVDs.


I just had the reverse trouble, the people were all blue. What happened is that two of the composite jacks were reversed. Check to make sure a cable is not unplugged, and that they are all in their right spots.

Non bose dvd player for bose system


In short, you can. I did it last night. My Bose 321 DVD player is junk and it's always been junk, but I love the sound sytem. Last night, after the thing gobbled it's last DVD, I went through the whole, unplug, wait 5 minutes, plug back in, etc. and it still wouldn't eject so I ripped the DVD tray out of the thing with a pair of pliers, recovered my DVD, and slammed the tray back in, stripping all the gears and screwing up the motor in the process.
BUT, I disconnected the video cable from my Bose and plugged it into the video out on my el-cheapo Tru-Tech $99 DVD recorder. Then I ran the audio out cables from the Tru-Tech to the Aux 1 inputs on my Bose 321.
When I want to watch a DVD now, I put the DVD in my Tru-Tech, turn on the Bose, switch it to Aux 1, and I get a great picture and the Bose sound. Best of all, I don't have to plug and unplug that sorry Bose system everytime the wind blows.
They used the absolute cheapest DVD player they could get their hands on--a Toshiba model--for all the Bose 321 older models. Every single person who bought one has had these same troubles and they've made no offer to fix them.
This was my first and last Bose because of that and I hope more people stay away from Bose until they get their act together and protect their customers. $1000 for a system that eats DVDs like M&M's is ridiculous.

Mitsubishi WS-65511 Rear Projection Big Box TV resets with a green flashing light every 5 minutes, Then works fine for 5 more minutes (perfect picture). Acts up worse when cold. Warm it up Works hours It's NOT the DM board caps. I've already replaced the DM caps twice. Not the problem. No repairman will look at the set. Too Old. So am I. I could repair it with help. The power supply must have a safety circuit that will shut down & reset if too much draw. I DON'T have a diagram. I'm not sure how to trace it . Which board? If I unplug boards one at a time, Will it damage other boards ? I know it is NOT the 7 DM board caps everyone keeps telling me. I see no burn't parts, No bulging caps. Tapping on components doesn't reset. What kind of component would act up when cold , But not overdraw when warm? This set has the best beautiful picture when it runs. If you can get past the resetting every 5 minutes for the first hour, You can watch it sometimes for 20 hours. I've left it on at night & it is still on the next morning. Change the channel Or raise the volume, And off it goes. Once or 10 times, Keeps resetting. Then on for 4 or more hours, Maybe. I can't afford a new one. It works GREAT ! when it works. I've notice that even when the set is turned off, The green light starts flashing (resetting itself while it's off) , Then stops. Once in a hundred times it will kick off the breaker & you need to push reset with a pin on the front panel next to the green light. It's probably a 10 cent resistor OR a $ 1.00 cap. If I only had someone with more knowledge than me to help. I know how to use a meter & read a schematic. I built a Heathkit 25"TV in the 70's & all my novice ham gear. I'm 64 & not familiar with digital circuits. Can someone help PLEASE ?
