Bose 123 Home Theater speakers started crackle sound?

The system is 3 years old and in great shape. Was working great, as usual, up to 5 minutes ago. All of a sudden a mile crackle sound is coming through both the left and right speaker? Up to that point everything was great. I checked speaker connections in both the base and the wall units. The only thing I think of is perhaps some of the wires in the back of the unit (Bose 123 box, cable box, HDTV unit) are interrupting each other by simply touching? I don't know if this is possible but this is my theory as I did push the stand back which all the units are housed in and all the wires are behind the stand on top of each other. Is this a possiblility?

If the wires are bare on some parts and touch eachother that will most likely be the cause.

Trying to connect to LG 60 inch plasma. no output


You need to connect the Bose using the Optical Audio output from TV to Bose main unit (kind of square shaped connector), and not using the RCA inputs on TV.

The picture below is an LG back panel, the optical audio connector is at the lower side of I/O connections at the back of TV, on some model the location of connector may be different.

I cant adjust the volume on my BOSE 1-2-3 home theater without the sound kicking off. if i switch to aux. or video-2 then back to video-1, the sound comes back on......

I went to the Bose website and they suggested resetting the system:

1) Turn off the system.
2) Unplug the sub-woofer power cord from the wall.
3) Unplug the sub-woofer to control head cord.
4) Wait several minutes.
5) Reconnect the system.

It seems to have worked for the short term. The Apple store told my wife that she had to power down her iPhone once in awhile to give the microprocessor a chance to cold start, clearing registers and such. It may be the same thing here.

Am setting up a bose GSX 3-2-1 home theater

Need to know the TV connections. On newer TV's there RCA jack connection or ext speaker connections. Usually the external TV speaker connections hook to the woofer and the rest of the speakers are connected to the woofer. The woofer acts as the sound system for the rest of the speakers. With this method you need to mute the internal TV speakers by a swiich on the TV or internal TV setup menus and select ext speakers.
