Re: Not turning on.
I have these speakers and I had to dismantle the circuit board to replace some components. I think it was capacitors, but a long time ago....so...I don't remember which parts....most likely same problem....mine are still working now. A good tech should trace power to amp section and signal through amp. ...about $15 reasonable repair....no more.

I assume this is a powered unit, so first off make sure the power cord is plugged into the wall and the speakers. then make sure you are plugged into the correct jack on the PC. It is usually green in color. Finally, make sure the volume on both the speakers and the PC are turned up. Report back wit hresults.
I suspect you have not plugged them back into the correct socket. The plug is coloured green and therefore should go back into the green socket. you have probably plugged it back into the blue or pink sockets. Use a torch to check that is in the green one.
Check the easy stuff first: make sure the volume is at a reasonable level and play sounds from multiple sources like pandora, youtube, a local mp3 etc to make sure issue is consistent.
Next make sure the one or more wires are plugged into the correct ports. Or at the very least the green wire is plugged into the green plug on the computer (unless they're USB speakers?).
You could always look at the sound settings of Windows and see (if your sound card has multiple plugs) if the plugs and assigned different functions (base speaker versus microphone/headphone etc.). Hope this helps!
what color is you tip beacause if it is green athen look in the back of your computer and and there is i think like 3 or 5 slots and the one that is the color of your speaker tip(should be green) plug it in there and then turn off your computer then turn it back on and go to like youtube or something and it should work
Hi, I have just had the same problem and the advice from BOSE was to turn everything off and disconnect the sub from the main unit, wait 10 mins and turn everything back on, making sure to turn the sub on first.
As it happens i then noticed I had connected the sub via the BOSE link speakers plug to the main unit rather than the correct "MAIN" socket. - so if you are reading this you know I am a fool! But the sound now works.
Basically BOSE confirmed the reason for error 10 is that the main unit is not detecting the sub and speakers.
Anyway, I hope my foolish mistake, helps save time and blushes for anyone reading this link.
if you have plugged correctly without any losse contact it should work if not o think your speaker configration is not correctly set go to the control panel->sounds and audio devices->device volume->advanced there u set that balance slider to middle of all volume control,wave,sw synth,line in etc.. then go to speaker settings in the same window of sounds and audio drivers there in speaker settings click on advanced you get another window in that drop down box specify your speaker configration wether is desktop speakers laptop mono speakers or stereo headphones etc specify the right one you have then ok after this in speaker settings click on speaker volume and keep left and right speakers to maximum then apply ok this will work check it out if stil not worked tell me what ws the result ill solve that for u
check the wattage of the speakers, they could be drawing too many watts from your amplifier, if you plug in a speaker that's more than the channel, it could harm your amp.
for example a 200 watt stereo, with 4 channels that equals 50 watts per speaker.
