Re: Bose 802C System Controller
Please bring a good brand lubricant contact cleaner from near radio shack and apply it in the sockets(the place which you put your jack).and insert your jack in-out many times-also you have to check cable for the bad channel(try with good channel cable).
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

i would suggest teh best and cheapest solution as remotes for those are really expensive go to amazon.con or a local walmart and purchase a logitec harmony remote series 420 or higher (the 420 or 520 are around 40 bucks now) and it will plug into your pc you tell it what all you have i.e tv model. bose model etc. and it will auto but all the commands on the remote with a screen on the remote for more options PLUS it will also let you set up activities such as watch tv which will automatically turn on tv , turn on your sound system to the right input and the remote will control the volume of the sound system and channels for the tv instead of hitting dvd/life style system button for sound then hittin tv button for channels. i hope this helps.
just had same problem checked all my connections then unplugged power to main unit and plugged back in seamed to reset itself and working okay only my problem occurd after turning system on hope this helps
Completely power down the system, by first turning it off, then removing the power cord from the wall socket. Wait a minute or two. Then, reconnect the power, and turn on the system. This should clear up the problem.
For future reference, it is good to use a top-quality surge suppressor, at the power source, to protect your Bose Lifestyle sound system.
They have the phone number for support, I have owned many bose systems but not thiss one, seeing that you have had so many people trying to help I thought I would give you this information to contact their direct support By phone in the Morning, If it's flashing it's not getting a signal from most of bose products I have used so hope this helps and merry xmass hope ya get it fixed.
Tech data sheet with diagrams: http://www.bose.com/pdf/professional/802III_techdata.pdf In a nutshell, the controller would go between a preamp Stereo OUTput and a dedicated amplifier INPUT. You can't use Bose 901 or 802 EQ in a multichannel setup without separate amps for the Bose speakers.
The Bose 802/901 family uses full-range speakers instead of traditional woofer/tweeter combinations, so they compensate for the response limitations at the extreme frequencies by using severe electronic modification of the program material. Hence, they are a system, functionally inseparable, but the results are outstanding. Consequently, they need a dedicated amplifier so they alone get the processing provided by their electronic component. In a vanilla stereo configuration you would just put the controller/EQ into a Tape Monitor loop but multichannel sound and digital sources won't work that way. You should be able to draw off the (assumed) Front L&R channel preamp signal from the MD/CD-R or DVD-R Audio Out (REC) jacks (*). Run that to the Preamp In (or whatever it's labeled on the Bose EQ/Controller). DO NOT run a return RCA pair back to the Receiver as Bose-processed signals will not play well with non-Bose speakers. (*) Run the Output of the Bose EQ/Controller to a powerful separate amp for the Bose 802/901's. I use two channels on a Carver multichannel AV-406 amp but a stand-alone Carver MT-200T also works well. A good clean 100 watts/channel should suffice at home. * If possible, choose the recorder loop you are NOT using for something else. If you're using the MD/CD-R or DVD-R Audio OUT for a recording device just get some RCA splitters to share the Stereo signal between the Bose and the device at the same time. However, once you select monitoring of that recorder two things will likely happen - 1) you'll lose the Bose and anything digital in the receiver will be disabled.
It's the nature of the digital beast that analog monitoring gets in the way of DSP.
Of course, if anyone who reads this has a receiver with individual analog Audio Outputs for the various 5.1 channels (as I do), the solution would be to draw off the Front L&R channels to the Bose EQ and downstream amplifier and the rest would be the same but without Recorder Loop limitations.
