Question about Bose 3 2 1 GSX System

Will not power up

I was using the fm and the audio cord came out. While attempting to plug the cord back in I turned the unit on it's side and the stereo turned off. Now it will not turn on by the remote or the on / off button. When I power the unit down and repower it displays the 321 on the screen but then nothing after that.

Your have to open the system removing the six screws on the bottom. Once the cover is off you might want to remove the am/fm connetion to give your self more room. You just unplug it from the board by gently pulling on the white connecting plastic and not the wire. Pull the am/fm board toward the front a bit and lift up. You shold see three shinny metal wires per say. and the one you want to check is the one that looks like it's connecting straight into the display screen. Notice two seem to connect towards the front. You want the one that is straight forward. This was the connection that had come undone on my system and was causing the no power up just the "BOSE 3-2-1" message.

How to change the indicated voltage which is indicated volt adjustment


Where the power cord plugs into the unit look for a red slide switch. One side will say 220 and the other will say 120. Use a finger nail to change the switch to match your local power voltage.

Hi you could have a clogged drain pump or obstruction in it. Remove the lower bottom cover. Have a container or towels to catch water. Removed the drain cover by turning counter clock wise. Sometimes you have to remove the pump to fully and clean. You also need to plug the washer into another outlet. If possible use an extension cord use the extension for test only.

How do i change the memory back up battery?


Hello

You can replace the battery without loosing its memory. Follow these instructions. Battery must be changed as fast as you can. So read well and they do the work.

o Bose radio uses a standard nine-volt battery that serves as a backup for the memory and alarm when it's unplugged or when the power is off. It will power these functions for up to three days. Using the radio without the battery won't damage it, but the memory won't be backed up. The battery does not provide enough power for normal operation, including the lighted display.

To install a battery, turn the radio over. Push on the arrow on the battery chamber cover and move it aside. Match the terminals on the battery with their opposites inside the chamber, and push the battery securely into place. Close the cover and return the radio to an upright position.

Connect the power cord to the jack on the back of the radio. The flat side of the connector must line up with the flat side of the jack. Since the power cord contains the FM antenna, uncoil the cord for the best reception. Plug the power cord into a standard electrical outlet.

An FM cable connector is on the back of the radio. Contact your cable company for help in setting up your connection. When you set it up, be sure to use a splitter that separates the FM signal from the TV signal so that the TV signal won't be transmitted to your radio.

If your remote is slotted on the back, press the tip of a pen into the opening and push the battery chamber cover to the side. If there's no slot, push the tab to one side with your finger and open the chamber cover. Use only a lithium battery size CR 2032 or DL 2032. Place the battery into the chamber with the plus sign face-up. Push the chamber cover closed and it will lock.

I turn on my DVD player and it will say "f61" and turn off.


Hi,
I you can try this option:
1. Unplug the power cord.
2. Wait five minutes to let residual power dissapate from unit,
3. Use electronic contact cleaner with thin red spray tube and spray inside each input/ouput jack in back,
4. Clean each patch cord lead and also do same for speaker output connectors.
5. Do the same to AM/FM antenna outputs. The contact cleaner has high flash and evaporates quickly. (also try to use compressed air in can with same red tube).
Cheers!!

Am/fm radio stations not clear... I have the AM antenna attached... but there is no attachment for FM


First of all check for any nearby source of interference.....Move your unit away from all computers, fluorescent lights, neon lights, microwaves, cell phones, and cell phonemag-glass_10x10.gif chargers. These devises tend to produce noise in the medium frequency band, where AM radio is broadcast.
If the unit plugs into the wall with a nonpolarized plug (where both prongs are the same size), try reversing the plug inmag-glass_10x10.gif the outlet. Moving the plug to another outlet might help, too.
check for fault in the antenna lead, (common) or bad earth on the antenna to body
If you don't have an antenna connected to your FM receiver,With a receiver or tuner, connect a wire-loop or T-shaped dipole FM antenna to the back of your unit. Move the antenna until you get the cleanest signal. Use a signal-strength meter or display to gauge signal strength if your unit has one.
  • Step 2 If you're still not getting a good signal, try an indoor amplified antenna, which you'll find at an electronics store. Don't buy one unless you get a guarantee that you can return it for full credit if it doesn't solve your reception problems.
  • Step 3 If your signal is weak because you live a long way from the transmitter, install an outside antenna and mount it as high as is practical. If you're primarily interested in getting signals from one station or from a group of stations in one direction, get a directional antenna and point it toward the transmitters.
  • Step 4 If you're using a portable FM radio where the only antenna is the power cord, stretch the cord as straight as possible and experiment with positioning again.
  • Step 5 Temporarily switch to monaural mode to improve a weak signal on an FM receiver.

    BACK PANEL OF CAR MP3 PLAYER UNDERSTANDING CONNECTIONS. i'VE JUST BOUGHT A CHINA MADE CAR MP3 / FM PLAYER. IT'S BACK SIDE HAS GOT 2 SETS OF SPEAKERS CORDS. ONE BLACK CORD LOOKING LIKE AV CONNECTION JACK...


    from what you describe, the red wire is definately power in to the unit ((+) hence the fuseable linkage). Blue is an odd color in electronics, so if its next to the red it is more than likely return voltage ((-) in DC circuits return voltage is grounded. Typically a head unit will have the wire diagram printed on a sticker placed on top or the back of the unit.

    AND FOR THE BLACK CORD, thats for then fm antenna, there should be a cord that looks just like that one behind the unit, only the vehicle end is the male end.

    I was using the FM modulator to listen to the MP3 player. I shut the unit down and kept the power cord plugged in to charge the battery. When I went to use the MP3 player again, the FM modulator wasn't...


    Ok,
    So s the FM modulator working or not? If everything is working then anything could have been the culprit. These units work much like computers and it's possible for glitches/freezes and even more serious things to occur being they are quite complex units. Has this problem occurred often? If so how old is the unit and the modulator and how long have you had this problem? Once I have more information I will be happy to assist you further.
    Thank you,

    Reciever powers up and recieves signal (station and song titles are displayed) but doesn't transmit to car radio either through the assigned fm station or the aux cord.


    IF you have a cord plugged into the audio jack, if will TURN OFF your FM transmitter. You have to leave it unplugged for the FM transmitter to work. Go to MENU and make sure your FM station is set and that the FM OUTput signal is turned up. Write back if you need more help.

    I need to know how to turn it on...i don't know if its broken or what...cuz i put in new batteries and it won't trun on


    1. Open the battery cover on your TuneCast II Mobile FM Transmitter. Install the included AAA batteries and
    replace the battery cover.
    2. Plug the 3.5mm connector into your iPod player or other portable music device.
    3. The AUTO ON feature will power on the FM Transmitter when the unit detects an input signal. Your FM
    Transmitter’s “AUTO ON/OFF” feature uses your audio player’s volume level to automatically power on and
    off.
    For best results, keep your player set at a medium volume level. NOTE: Setting your device volume very
    low may cause the FM Transmitter to turn off, even if the audio player is on.
    You can also press and hold
    both and buttons simultaneously for two seconds to turn on the unit. To turn off the unit, press
    and hold both buttons simultaneously again for two seconds.

    Onkyo TX-SV434 "Protect" light


    The protect mode is a built in safety message, indicating that theres a fault somewhere with-in the unit, and it wont let the unit come on fully or more damage will occour. This unit is a solid state device, and you should not attempt to use it or open it or try any self repair as it will cause more damage. If this unit is more then a few years old , it might just be the time to start looking around at all the back to school sales on electronics, as to have this unit serviced will cost an estimate fee as well as parts and labor. If you want to invest a few bucks into this machince , then go for it, but its most likly will cost 1/2 or more then the cost of the entire unit did when it was new to have it repaired. It is up to you. Good Luck
