Question about Bose Acoustimass 15 System

1 Answer

Volume cuts in and out

When listening to a DVD or cable television, frequently the volume will cut in and out. Sometimes it just goes to a very low level until I press "volume +" on the remote control, then it goes to the normal volume.

I don't listen to a lot of music, but haven't noticed it on CD's. But, cannot 100% sure say it will not happen, since I hardly listen to music. The DVD and CD player are the same device.

I am connected through a brand new Sony Receiver. I have the same issue through a 10 year old Kenwood Receiver.

Any ideas?

Since a CD/DVD player is a digital device, it can be susceptible to such things as power line glitches, interference from other digital equipment and even the ignition interference from nearby passing cars. With older analog gear, you might get a short burst of static, whereas it can completely shut down a digital device sometimes (glitches interrupt its internal program). Sadly, there's nothing you can do about this except plugging the unit into a power line conditioner. You might try jiggling the connecting cables (especially the audio cable), but it sounds more like a random glitch since you can use your remote to fix it. They haven't yet worked out all the bugs in digital equipment, unfortunately. It's also possible that a defect in the DVD player was not caught at the factory during final test.

I set the volume to 40. After a little while the volume starts dropping down. If you do not turn the volume back up the volume will eventually go to zero all by it self and turn off the system.

Tv volume too low


Sometimes there is a volume on older cable boxes. Unfortuanately adjusting the volume can be a chore because most cable remotes are volume locked to the TV input. You can try and press the cable button on your cable box remote and see if the volume will adjust, if not I would call your cable company and see if they can help, and possibly replace the box. Usually you can take the box to a store for your provider in the area and they can swap it out.

The sound keeps breaking up the green light goes out and there is a terrible hissing sound


I know this is a bit late but i had the same issues with my unit. turns out if you listen with the source volume really low the headphones cant detect sound so they shut off. you fix this by simply adding more volume from the source and then just decrease volume on the actual headphones to obtain desired listening level and say goodbye to this issue.

RADIO CUTS OFF WHEN VOLUME IS TURNED UP


It could be your wiring as well. Sometimes, when speaker wire gets cut and grounded, like your factory wiring to your door speakers or you tap into facrotry speaker wires to add more, the load on your deck increases. When the volume gets to a certain level, it will cut off because of the heat produced to maintain the load.

My YAMAHA DSP592 is cutting out / turning off if i turn up.


Try disconnecting speaker cables and listen with headphones. If doesn't cut out, output is overloaded. Check for rodent chews on speaker cables.

Sound cut-out


Most likely this unit goes into protect mode due to heat detection. Try to see if there is a pattern to when this behavior starts. Does a lower volume level allow the unit to run longer? Perhaps there is a problem internally that is allowing DC voltage to get to the output stage. This will cause excessive heat which can then cause the protection circuit to kick in. This unit may need to see a bench with some test gear to locate the exact problem. If you can, look for any pattern and update this.

Interior speakers cut out when the volume is turned up


You may have speakers of an incorrect impedance attached to the unit since the problem occurs when audio signal level is increased and the current goes up.The unit is shutting down to prevent damage. I would check the speaker connections and make sure that the speakers impedance are matched for the unit you are using.

Picture too large for screen


If the television is connected to a cable box such as Time Warner's HD box, the picture mode can be changed by pressing the '#' on the cable box's remote keypad (where the channel numbers are). This cycles the picture between zoom, normal, and stretch which could be cause of your problem.
