Question about Bose Cinemate Digital Home Theater System Speaker

1 Answer

Somehow I can't turn the power on?

This may seem lame, but I have had my cinemate for about 8 months and have used the remote to turn the unit on and off. Tonight, when I push the button, the tv button lit up, but the unit won't turn on. Please help1

    We recently moved the system to a different room in the house and now cannot get the system to turn on.

    I have the exact same problem. What the heck kind of audio system requires the remote to provide even the simplest system functionality (like turning the unit on). I'm very disappointed in this product and would not recommend it.

    I have the exact same problem. When I hit the on/off switch the TV button lights up but the red LED on Bose unit stays lit. Tried new batts. but no luck. Think either the remote or module is screwed up.

I am having a Bose Cinamate Digital Home Theater. Original remote of this was lost and bought a new Bose Solo/cinemate system universal remote. It doesn't function with the interface. Will it real


If you can't get this to work, I suggest you try to return the remote and buy and harmony remote. For me it worked very well with everything including old audio amps and you can configure your own activities.

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

Bose Cinemate wont turn on. I believe the remote control is not communicating with the unit. How can we reset the remote control?


Read this procedure to possibly fix the remote:
http://remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=Display&contents=help_deadremote&uuid=A12963989782821
They also sell replacement remotes.

Zoom in on the picture of the original remote provided on the site (or look at your own) and get the actual remote model number.

or check eBay: search for "(model of the device or the remote) remote", check the 'include description' box. Usually cheaper than the vendors.

Can't find remote for Bose Cinemate...is there any other way to turn it on without remote?


No, you need some sort of remote. Luckily this Bose uses IR for the remote and not RF. This means you might find a cheap universal remote that has a code for this. PC programmable remotes such as Logitech's Harmony, URC, and RTI remotes would definitely work.

If this was helpful, please rate!

Cinemate system will not turn on


Turn the system on from the front of the main unit, then use the remote to turn the unit on and off after that.






Is it really hot?


Make sure there is nothing blocking the front 
display where signals are received. 
• Aim more directly at the media center. 
• Move closer to the system. 
The control range of the remote is roughly 
20 feet (6.2 meters). 




Note: On some systems, the Acoustimass 
module includes one of two controls. 
On 220-240V models only, turn the 
POWER switch to on ( l ). 
On dual-voltage systems only, set 
the voltage switch for the power 
that is appropriate to the region 
where you use the system.

Bose cinemate will not power on. light stays red?


Make sure your system is not plugged into a surge protector. Sometimes a surge protector will foul the system up, don't know why. lol. I fought with my system for 3 hours trying to get it to work, then moved it from my surge protector to the wall and it came on. If that doesn't work, try disconnecting the receiver module itself, wait 60 sec, then plug it back in. If that still does not solve the problem, I would suggest calling Bose Customer Service..

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.

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.
