The IR Receiver is on the Front behind the snap-off front cover. Note you have to take off the front shroud of the DVD player to get the front cover off. Also note the IR is very very delicate and the slighest wrong move will remder the board it connects to broken. If you can get the dvd shroud and front cover off - you'll see what looks like a small rubber dot in the center (top to bottom ) and (side to side). Good luck. Bose does NOT make these units so consumers can work on them. I only know how this works as I too and trying to get my unit repaired and I won't be held hostage by Bose.

The IR Receiver is at the extreme right of the shiny opaque panel, just before it joins to the black plastic frame. If you sine a torch at it you'll see it clearly, it's vertically centred and about 5 mm from the end. Good Luck.

Remote sensor location


Remote receiver is located on tiny PC board at the top and just in front of the middle of the three picture tubes---board is about 3/4 inch wide and maybe 2 inches long----pretty standard IR unit.

Look from back with back cover removed and it is in front of the middle lens there.

TV IS NOT RESPONDING TO REMOTE. I'VE CHANGED THE BATTERIES AND HAVE TRIED OTHER SAMSUNG REMOTES THAT WORK ON MY OTHER TVS. ANY SUGGESTIONS...


Sounds like problem is with TV. Make sure the remote sensor on the TV is not blocked, it is located at the lower right part of the front of the TV.

My remote does not work. I have changed the batteries and reset the system. Nothing worked, what else can I do?


If your remote is not functioning at all still you may want to try a universal and if that works then you will know you need a new bose remote. If that does not work it would lead to the ir sensor on the unit.
You may want to try to clean the ir ( the front of the remote with cotton or a q-tip and the same on the receiver first and then after they are dry go over them again with a clean dry one to get the residue off to see if that works.
If this is helpful please rate me as helpful,
Thank You,

I have a Bose Lifestyle V30 surround sound system and the Bose remote does not function with any of the listed remote codes for the Panasonic. I have a Panasonic TC-P58V10.


You need to use the IR emitter that came with the Bose V30 system. Bose employs a proprietary RF frequency remote which communicates to the hidden central control head. You plug in the emitter to the processor unit and run the emitters to the IR 'eye's' of the equipment you want to control. Once all this is done then and only then can you go through the remote codes to control a particular device. The Bose V30 has 2 IR emitters that come with the unit to control 2 devices. You can expand on that buy buying a IR emitter bridge that has several inputs for other devices.

Now when it comes to a DVR I am not so sure the Bose universal remote will work all the playback and FF and record control buttons and a DVD or VCR. I hear there is a new BOSE remote on the market that can do that but I have yet to see it in person or ask a sales rep about it. Sometimes they are non-tech's so its no help : (

How do i get my Bose Lifestyle remote to control


call bose tech support and register your lifestyle system with them, they in turn will start sending you update CD's those CD's may include the new IR databases that would help you find the right code. the other alternative is to call VIaSat and find out what brand's IR codes they are using( and in the IR menu on the bose try that brand's codes) A lot of manufacturers will use the codes from Motorola(worth a shot) the alternative option is to program a universal remote to control your bose, and all your equipment (if your equipment is hidden in a closet, get an RF remote, I program these for my clients all the time (for their bose systems))

BOSE REMOTE RC38T1-27


The first solution is wrong. (no offense to the Guru) This can not be caused by any settings, so save yourself the hassle.
The LS38 does use RF and IR, but if the remote works at all, RF is already active. 'IR control' is only for using other universal remotes on this system.
If shaking the remote does not cause a rattle, then there's probably nothing wrong with the remote. Also nothing wrong with any dip switches. (I'm assuming you've tried new batteries)
The power supply cable (DC power) at the back of the media center also doubles as the receiving antenna for the RF remote. Straighten this cable out as much as possible. Make sure it's not wrapped around any other cables, power cables especially. This should solve your problem.

Where is the IR sensor on a Bose 3-2-1 Series II?


I believe I've found the IR sensor. By shining a flash light on the various parts of the normally opaque shield over the front of the Bose, I was able to spot what I believe to be the sensor on the extreme right end of the shield, vertically centered. Later today I hope to verify this by connecting everything and using the remote through the Xantech. If it turns out that I'm wrong, I'll post again.

URC-9910 remote: The RF part for this remote stopped working.


I have the same remote as yours and occasionally the RF remote is not working due the interference signal from outside or next door at certain hours.
My suggestions:
(1) To relocate the receiver and reposition the anntena for better reception of the RF signal from the remote unit.
(2) Replaced the battery.

Hope these help!

Bose 321 Remote not working


Pull off the front panel, be carefull there is a ribbon attached. Detach the ribbon. There are 2 ribbons attached to the front panel, one that leads to the IR (remote sensor) and other for the controls on the top of the unit.

Most likely the ribbon that goes to the IR sensor detached itself, this is common if the unit is dropped etc. Insert the ribbons (2) re-attach the front panel and the remote should work fine. You'll notice some tape on the IR ribbon, I suggest using some stronger tape, BOSE tape thats not very good.

This happened to me on my 3-2-1 GS II system and fixed it.

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!
