Bose 321 I have opened up my Bose 321 system and noticed that the DVD player is a standard Toshiba DVD player for a computer (set in Master mode). Can I replace this with any IDE DVD player?

Yes as long as IDE cables and DVD player fits it shouldn't be a problem

Clean out the battery connection inside the battery case. Incase this work disassemble your remote and find any fault connection in it. or let the repair man do it.

If the remote work change the setting press PBC mode this will change the color. or refer to the manual for changing view setting.

No Sound


Do you have the audio out for your dvd player and cable tv going to the bose speakers or is going to the television. It needs to be connected to the home theater system in order to work. The audio cables from dvd player and cable. Let me know if it works.

When I press the Eject Button on the Bose 321 DVD Player the tray does not open up. I can hear the sound as if trying to open


normal issues with cd/dvd trays - gear/rubber of the tray transport worn out.

manytimes it helps if you always keep a cd/dvd in the tray (don't keep the tray empty)

it may also help if you can keep the bose 321 vertical.

NO NEED TO TEAR APART OR REPLACE THE UNIT! JUST TURN OFF THE UNIT, LEAN IT FORWARD AND A LITTLE DOWNWARD AND HIT THE LOAD BUTTON AND IT WILL OPEN. THAT'S THE TRICK!

DVD won't play


had the same issue, Bose 18 played no problem for 2.5 years and then started acting up.
sometimes power reset helped sometimes not.
finaly go tired of it and took the system apart.
Inside is little customized toshiba dvd ide drive set as master.
Same as in normal computer but with different front so works in Bose.
Took apart DVD and cleaned with the laser lens with windex.
Works perfectly now.

I took the long run. If somebody has dentist mirror and some precise tools maybe you can reach the lens without taking everything apart.
maybe somebody sells special disc for cleaning lenses?

I hope this helps.

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:

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.

PCM 2.0


I had the same problem with my 321 system. The fix is in the cable box settings. You want to change the Digital Out on the cable box..my choices were HDMI....Dolby Digital..and None. Choose Dolby Digital and it will show up on your Bose 321 display. I also have my cable box connected to my bose system via optical digital cable...and a digital coaxel cable from my dvr to my bose. Change that output setting on my cable box took care of the PCM 2.0 problem for me.

Bose 321 DVD System


I love my Bose 321 DVD system, but a few days ago, it started acting weird. I put in a DVD, and it reads - "No Disc".....and I'm not sure why. I cleaned the disc, and I also played a DVD/CD Maintenance kit - I'm not sure what is wrong. It seems like I have a problem within the system - what can I do?
