Question about Bose 3 2 1 GSX System

2 Answers

Rmote control I dropped the RC and now the red light won't turn off and it consumes the batteries overnight. The RC works fine but the light doesn't go off. The red light only lighted before when any button was pressed now is on all the time. Probably there's a contact inside the unit that is in short circuit. I tried to open the case but after loosing the only screw that is on sight the case still is tight.

    Also, I bought Harmony 890 Advanced Universal Remote to unify all appliances under one control and I haven't been able to make it work with the Bose 321 System, although I did run the required process suggested by the software of the Harmony remote control. All other electronic equipments are responding well to the Univeral RC. Any suggestions?

    I tried that but the case is too tight sitck together and I'm afraid that it'll brake.
    Where are the holders located on the unit so I try to apply pressure on those sides only?

    Only one screw is visible. There no stickers that could be covering other screws

    Hey, I got it opened

  • Ernies May 17, 2008

    Guess what I did fix it. Now the light is off and the unit is working.
    Do you know how to program the Harmony Universal RC unit to replace the Bose RC?

    I also think that you dont have knowledge of properly opening the bose system so please dont do that .since it may damage more ,and let the tecnical person check it and repair it...because if you get success in opening the case ,than also you will not be able to repair it...........

If all else fails try resetting the unit to the initial factory settings.

While stopped and "DVD/CD" is the source, press and hold [Tune=mode/FM-mode Button] on the main unit and [>=10 Button] on the remote control until "Initialized" disappears from the television. Turn the unit off and on again. All settings will return to the default values.

Mic won't work at auxiliary mode

On the remote control, there is a blue "Magic Mic" button. Press on that your mic will turn on in any mode.
Just joking but I've been mad about how bad this LG home theater system is. It can only play extremely limited video files and turn off the mic in AUX mode. So the answer is you really can't do that. Buy a mixer instead.

How do I reprogram my g e universal remote control model rc 24912 - e 3839

Direct Code Entry
  1. Press and hold the SETUP button until the red indicator stays on, then release the SETUP button.
  2. Press and release the desired Mode button (TV, VCR, etc.). The red indicator blinks, then stays lit.
  3. Enter the 4 digit code from the code tables. Note: after a valid code entry, the red indicator turns off. For an invalid code, the red indicator flashes.
  4. With your device on, press CHANNEL UP. If the device responds, no further programming is required. Note: If some buttons do not operate your device, try one of the other codes for your brand

    Code Search Method
    1. Manually turn on the device (TV, VCR, etc.) to be controlled.
    2. Press and hold the SETUP button until the red indicator stays on, then release the SETUP button.
    3. Press and release the desired Mode button (TV, VCR, etc.). The red indicator blinks once, then stays on.
    4. Press the CHANNEL UP button repeatedly (up to 300 times) until the device to be controlled changes channel. The red indicator blinks, then stays lit.
    5. Press and release MUTE to install the code. The indicator light goes off.
    Most users will want to store VCR codes under the VCR button, Cable codes under CBL, etc. If you want to store a VCR code under CBL, etc., first follow the procedure for Direct Code Entry and press CBL in step 2 of Direct Code Entry, then enter ANY VCR code in step 3 of Direct Code Entry. Then follow the steps above for Code Search.

    1. Press and hold the SETUP until the LED indicator lights steadily. Release Setup button.
    2. Press the mode button that matches the equipment you want to identify. The LED blinks once.
    3. Press and release SETUP. The LED blinks once.
    4. To find the first digit, press each number button from 0 to 9 until the LED blinks. The number you pressed is the first digit of the code.
    5. Press each number button from 0 to 9 again as above to find the second digit.
    6. Press each number button from 0 to 9 again as above to find the third digit.
    7. Press each number button in turn to find the fourth digit. When the fourth digit has been found, the LED goes out.

The Remote control just up and quit working.

Sounds like the circuit board inside the casing has a solder break. this solder connection was probably connected to the battery post inside the remote. it only takes a solid drop on a hard surface to cause this breakage or, it could be poor manufacturing as well.
