I have a Bose LIfestyle V20. The system worked fine for a week, but now when I press either the AUX or VCR keys, the sound plays for a second then stops. The sound plays fine from the expansion speakers outside.

    TV and DVD work fine. On the VCR and AUX modes, the sound plays for a second and goes off. Every time I switch between VCR and AUX the sound plays for a second.

    I have a Bose Lifestyle v20 system. The sound for the Cable and DVD are working fine, but the sound for the AUX and VCR only plays for a second then stops. When I switch between modes the sound plays for a second again. When I plugged the VCR and AUX devices into the TV outlet, the sound was fine. All speakers seem to be working properly. Is this a setup problem?

    Thanks for the help. After resetting the unit, it works fine, but now the Bose SA-2 amp for the outside speakers does not work at all. The green light on the back of the amp does not even come on.

Did you changed any setting in trying reset.If not then unplug all the external connections and reconnect all the connections back and recheck.But if you have changed any setting then re-set it once again to the previous settings and then check out. Thanks.

If the unit's still in warranty, have it replaced, first of all. It could be that your cpu needs resetting (unplug the unit for a few minutes). I've seen reports where the microprocessor can hang, and have to be reset. It sounds like a component is breaking down, and that will take some serious troubleshooting.
Not sure what AUX is hooked up to, or if there could have been an impedence mismatch that affected the unit.
Couldn't find a similar problem on the net, which means it's probably going to be tricky. Try unplugging the unit, unless you already have, and get a replacement, if you can. Here is Bose support:

Good luck, thanks for using FixYa, and hope this helps.

Make sure the HDMI device (TV, Blueray player) is set up for audio output. Usually HDMI 1 is the only connection that has audio out. Also some TVa have to be configured for HDMI audio out.

I have a Bose Lifestyle v20 home theater system and whenever I use the radio ( FM/AM ), no sound/music comes out. The rest are fine, but only the FM/AM ones dont work. It used to, but now its gone.


I hope you checked if the antenna wire is connected before reporting this defect.
All modern radios have automatic muting. No sound will come out unless the receiver gets enough signal strength to give you an undistorted sound, so if your antenna wire is disconnected you will get no sound.

I had the same problem, and called Bose tech support. They put me on track to the solution. The code you need is under AUX, Music Player, Apple where you probably looked already. The secret is that you need to "unpair" the apple remote first. If I remeber right, in apple TV you go to settings, general, remotes and unpair your remote. It still works, but is no longer the only remote that works.
