20 Most Recent Bose Cinemate Digital Home Theater System Speaker Questions & Answers

Hi, All. First, thank you for suggestions posted. Next, I have unplugged both the subwoofer and the center channel speaker, left them unplugged for a minute or two, then re-plugged them in. However this did not correct the problem for me. When I pause the television for five or 10 minutes for example, the Bose volume automatically shuts off. This is a major inconvenience. I suppose if nobody can address this issue with the remedy here, I shall have to call Bose and see if they can assist. Any other ideas or suggestions? Meanwhile thank you very much.

Check if the speaker connector is firmly attached to the Acoustimass Module,if there is still no sound,the audio amplifier may have gone bad

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.

There are just 4 wires connecting in that jack: 2 grounds and 2 hot. You can identify them yourself directly either just by looking at the rear pins (where and how they are soldered on the board) after you remove the back cover, or by testing them with an ohmmeter (to the metal side of the jack): the 2 ground wires will show 0, the empty ones will show infinite and the hot ones will show 0 in the moment when you connect it then the resistance will grow fast toward infinite (if after that you reverse the polarity of the test wires you will get initially a negative resistance).

Check if that TV has headphone jack. If yes then you can buy adapter 3.5 mm to stereo RCA.

The manufacturer of the Optic cable will sell you a Switch plus two cables. Might be expensive.

Hello Mmlaird, Sadly... (because Bose is small & easy to carry around)... ((probably new & still under warranty))... For the reasons stated... I would try the BOSE first... (however) "HUM' in an audio circuit (usu. listening to LINE Current) is caused by TWO electrical conditions: - Shabby wire routing - CHEESY capacitors... I have written a BOOK-FULL of complaints about SAMSUNG'S quality ($$) decision to use inexpensive ... CAPACITORS... (in my opinion). Over the years... I have recognized that SAMSUNG has become the poster child for bright pictures, competitive prices... and high FAILURE RATES for cheesy capacitors... Good news... Because of their competitive prices... They are quite popular... SPARE PARTS... and REPAIR kits on AMAZON (and litigation) bearing the SAMSUNG name have been quite interesting... Thusly... SAMSUNG PARTS ABOUND... (as needed)... By no means am I saying SAMSUNG is alone in these DECISIONS ... I'll only say BOSE is not a likely candidate for MARGINAL PERFORMANCE, design or CONSTRUCTION. Your choice... (my opinion). Hope I am helping Carnac the Magnificent

The left audio channel pre-amplifier in your TV is not working. Fixing that is a job for a technician with an oscilloscope, or else you would have to replace the main board in the TV. If you connect another device (CD or MP3 player to your Bose sound system, I expect you will hear both speakers playing the sound from the other device.

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

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..
