Unplugging it (for only a couple of min.) worked for me.  Press AUX, then ON.  Green light came on after I did these steps.

Bose acoustimass remote not communicating


I would try the simple thing first, which is also the cheapest. Replace the IR sensor. I have put in hundreds of these and I would say about 1 out of every 20 went bad or started bad.

Bose Cinemate remote stopped working


Ive had the same problem, basically happens anytime we lose power or if it gets unplugged. Great speakers, poor design. Im not having any luck this time. Gonna try leaving it unplugged longer, like days this time. The remote feels like the problem, any button just causes the TV/VCR/AUX/ect row to blink, can't program it or anything. Seems like this is a common problem

Same problem. Bose CineMate light went red and doesn't come back green even if I tried changing batteries and doing 5 step approach mentioned above.


If resetting this system and re-seating the interface (box with light) to the bass module doesn't fix this, you may need a new interface module. This sells for about $40-50 from Bose. If this is under it's 1-yr warranty, they should be able to replace this for free.
So just incase you haven't tried it: 1. Unplug the power cord from the bass module (sub-woofer) along with the interface module and wait at least 30+ seconds. 2. Re-connect the interface first- screw it in as tight as can be. 3. Re-connect the power cord, and try the remote again.
This is really the only solution, and it's exactly what their tech support will have you try. That's the one functionally weak point with that system, that little module needs to be adjusted and re-seated from time to time.

Bose Cinemate green led won't come on.


Do the same thing by unplugging the power, but also unplug the interface module (box with red/green LED light) from the sub woofer / bass module, and wait 30+ seconds. Plug the interface module back in first, and screw it in as tight as possible. Then plug the power back in and try the remote. This should fix your problem. :)
If this doesn't fix it, you will have to purchase/replace this module through Bose. (anywhere from $40-$60 if not under 1-yr warranty.) If you're still under warranty, it's a free replacement.

No green led light on bose cinemate system


I had the problem, after a lightning surge through our house, that destroyed item connected to the telephone lines. The Cinemate interface unit stayed red (powered), but could not get green light to come on, and obviously no audio. Found through Bose tech support that the the units are failing from surges "too often". They are trying to find out why and fix the longterm problem. Tell them you had a power surge (which you likely did), the green light won't come on, but the remote works with TV, etc. They will send a UPS Return Tag for you to send back the small interface unit (only). Upon receipt, they will 2-day air you a new one. It solved the problem.

Interface module will not power on


I did the same and it worked once...spoke to "Phil" at Bose today--5/11/08 and after explaining that this was the second time and second interface mod that is having the same prob...he suggested that it is the bass module. So he emailed me a UPS shipping label to cover the cost of shipping back to MA. I am shipping the bass mod and interface mod. He said they will repair at no cost and re issue another 1 year warranty. info only: I have only had this system since Oct of 2007 and I have had the problem twice. The first solution was for bose to send me an interface mod free of charge due to the fact that the system is still under warranty.

If yous is still under warranty, I suggest you call them...if not, either buy another interface or new brand....I think this is an ongoing problem with the cinemate and THEY have NO solution either.

Hello everyone! The Bose interface module is working again. All I did was unplug the power, wait about a minute and then plugged it back in. Whatever it did, it must have reset itself, so now everything is fine.
