Question about Bose Lifestyle SA-2 2-Channel Amplifier

1 Answer

I have a Bose companion multimedia system for my computer sound system with a round Bose sound volume and mute control attached... No sound !! Checked all connections. I noticed on the round Bose volume/mute control, that the green display light is very weak and does not change to yellow when pressed to muted. Is the box system blown?

My Bose speakers stopped working. They are properly plugged in and seem to be getting power, but no sound.


if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to sound,video and game controllers you might see a yellow question exclamation mark? ! or a red X Right click to reinstall drivers
click start control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers make sure you have selected the
(((appropriate speakers))) also audio you will find 3 drop down lists make sure you have the correct settings there
also
click start control panel sounds and audio devices select advanced there might be a tick in the mute box untick it
if his does not fix the problem
click start control panel sounds and audio devices you can adjust the volume there also select speaker volume you can change your settings there you can also tick in the box place icon in taskbar for any further volume control settings you will need to right click on the volume icon system select adjust volume

click start control panel sounds and audio,volume,advanced,speakers select the appropriate speakers from the drop down list or navigate to the device manager scroll to system devices + to expand,system speaker right click properties then select use this device (enable) also you might check
the speakers plug/outlet is usually at the back of the computer you will have to open up the computer to check the lead attached to the rear of the input plug make sure the connection is good
try cleaning your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor making VERY sure that there is no MOISTURE in the air line specifically around the sound card and the CPU central processing unit dust causes static to build up in a computer

You need to connect the speakers to the green jack in your PC.

Check your system sound volume setting to make sure it's not set to MUTE or the volume slider is on or near the lowest position - you don't specify what system you have on the PC so I can't give you an exact pointer but Volume Control generally is found under Programs -> Accessories -> Entertainment.

Please come back and rate the solution if helped or post a comment for further assistance.

This soundsystem us USB based and you'll need to re install the drivers from Bose. If you
can't find proper drivers. you could patch into this soundsystem by taking sound from your soundcard vial line out and plugging it into the aux in on the systems volume control. Also since this system is USB it uses its own sound device. check under control panel --- sound to make sure the computer is using the correct device. Also check your volume control to make sure that the
system is active and not muted.

Hello,

I have had totally the same problem before, and I have discovered that it is actually because of the electric current running through the speakers when the volume is low or muted.

I am afraid to tell you that the only solution to this problem is to raise the volume, as it is not a malfunction in the speakers but in the electric current running through them.

Good luck.

Control Pod for Companion 5 volume control non-functional


I had exact same problem today. I moved my speakers from one room to the next. When I plugged everything back, the mute/unmute worked but the volume control no longer worked.

I got it working now!! I powered down my computer and then unplugged the power to the speaker system. Then plugged in the power to the speaker system again. Powered on computer and all is good again!!

Hope this helps/
