    Need more information please. We have the source on radio, on FM and on a known radio station that we listen to all the time.
    Yes no sound, not even static.

    It is not muted, the volume is up... the settings are to 5 speakers.
    We get sound on the surround sound system on the TV/cable but nothing with the radio?

    What could be the problem?
    Thanks

First of all check out if head phone is connected to the unit.If yes the remove it then check radio. Headphone listening To privately listen to your Lifestyle® system, you can connect headphones to the jack that is located on the right side of the media center as you face it. Note: Connecting headphones causes all main room speakers to be muted. CAUTION: Long-term exposure to loud music may cause hearing damage. It is best to avoid extreme volume when using headphones, especially for extended periods. Making antenna connections The supplied AM and FM antennas connect to the rear panel of the media center (Figure 10). Note: The FM connector may be used with an outdoor antenna. Before doing this, consult a qualified installer. Follow all safety instructions supplied with the antenna. FM antenna connection 1. Plug the connector on the FM dipole antenna lead into the FM antenna jack. 2. Spread out the antenna arms and change their orientation as needed to get the best FM reception. 3. Keep the antenna as far as possible from the media center, display, and Acoustimass® module. AM antenna connection 1. Plug the connector on the AM loop antenna lead into the AM antenna jack. 2. Stand the AM antenna on the base or mount the antenna on a wall, following the instructions enclosed with the AM antenna. 3. Keep the antenna as far as possible (at least 20 inches or 50 centimeters) from the media center and display module, and at least 2 feet (60 centimeters) from the Acoustimass module. Note: AM reception can be adversely affected by a nearby television when it is on. Turn off the TV for best AM reception. Cable radio as an option Some cable TV providers make FM radio signals available through the cable service to your home. This cable connects to the FM antenna jack on the back panel of the media center. For instructions on how to make this connection, contact your cable TV provider. ------------ Connecting the audio from your TV You may want to connect a source component, such as a camcorder or game console, directly to your TV. To play the audio from that source through your Lifestyle® system, you must connect the audio coming out of the TV to the Lifestyle® system. If your TV does not have an audio output, you can still hear the sound of a connected component through the speakers built into the TV. However, at any other time, it is best to keep the volume of your TV turned all the way down for a better surround sound experience. To connect your TV audio to the Lifestyle® system: • For a basic analog audio connection, use the supplied stereo audio cable (with two RCA connectors at each end, one red and one white). It connects to left (L) and right (R) audio outputs on the rear panel of your TV and to the (L and R) TV Audio IN jacks on the media center rear panel (see Figure 13). • If your TV provides a digital audio out connector, connect a digital audio cable. When making the digital audio connection, use either a single coaxial cable or an optical cable. Do not disconnect the analog connection described above. The analog connection ensures consistent sound in the event of a weak digital signal. • If your TV provides both fixed (FIX) and variable (VAR) audio output jacks, use the fixed jacks for higher quality. Be sure to select Fixed in your TV setup menu. ---------- Listening to the radio To listen to the radio, press the FM or AM button to select the tuner and turn it on. To manually tune a station, press the Tune Up or Tune Down button. To quickly tune to a station, press one of the preset buttons. To seek the next station with a relatively strong signal, press the Seek button. Presets A radio station preset allows you to quickly tune to a favorite station. You can add presets for up to 20 AM and 20 FM stations. To add a preset: 1. Decide on a preset number. 2. Use the remote control to tune to a station. 3. To assign the number to the current station, press and hold the corresponding number button: • For numbers 1 through 9, press and hold the number until the display module briefly indicates PRESET:xx SET (where xx is the number you pressed). • For numbers 10 through 20, press the first number, then press and hold the second number until the Lifestyle® display module briefly indicates PRESET:xx SET. Once a preset is added, you can tune to that station by pressing the preset number. To remove a preset, tune to the preset station, then press and hold zero until the message PRESET:xx ERASED briefly appears on the display module. Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

    This makes no sense.



    I am not setting up the system for the 1st time.



    I have listened to the radio just last week.



    I don't need to know how to preset my remote... or how to tune the remote or radio.



    I don't need to know where the cables go.



    This is a set up system that had a working radio and out of the blue the radio will not project sound out of the surround sound system.


    The speakers, input/output are all working for the tv/cable... just a problem with the radio.



    It is not muted.

    There are no headphones, never have been.

    The source is on radio/FM

    The frequency is on a known radio station and I have tried several other stations. There isn't even static. Just nothing.

Hello,

the next you need to check is the radio band (Am, Fm, etc) and secondly the antenna. Any of these two can cause the radio not to speak out.

Make sure the radio antenna is well connected to the radio and check the radio band to make sure its at the correct frequency.

Take care.

    What do you mean check the radio band?



    Do you mean AM FM? Or the radio station itself?



    If so we have it on FM and on the station we always listen to.



    The antenna is definitely plugged in.



    Sorry, what else?

No video at all!


I recommend you switch from using HDMI cables to using component (R/G/B RCA-style) cables. HD picture is superior through component cabling, and solves several HD picture issues, including HDCP (High Def Copy Protection) through HDMI issue. Component cabling should eliminate this problem.

I hope that helps.

I have installed the v30 bose lifestyle system but I can not get any video output on my Samsung led tv. I have tried the hdmi cable and the component cable. It both doesn't work.please help me with this


I recommend you stick with component cabling.

Having no picture at all generally suggests the V30 is trying a video mode your TV does not support:

  1. video type (PAL or NTSC)
  2. Progressive scan
  3. an HD resolution beyond your TV's range.
I hope that helps.

Have audio through TV can't get audio through Bose


It sounds like your signal path from the dvd is going through your TV, rather than through your Bose V30. Either find an audio out port on your TV and route it back to an aux in on the V30, or, preferably, run your DVR and your DVD to the V30, and then from the V30 to your TV.

I hope that helps.

You can connect an iPod to your Bose V30 using an ipod dock, or simply with a mini-jack (headphone jack) to RCA cable plugged into your V30's Audio-In ports.

I hope that helps.
