Question about Bose Lifestyle-28EW System

Open Question

Volume changes on its own.

I have not had any problems with this system up until recently. The problem started out with the volume changing by itself. No matter what the source is. During movies/radio/etc.. the volume will go up and down randomly. The volume change display is shown as well. This has now progressed to it muting itself, changing modes, and powering on/off by itself. I thought that the remote could be going bad. But even after putting the remote in a different part of the house the problem still exists. I am very friendly with technology, but am not sure where to start with this one. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

SOURCE: volume

I had this problem and checked the main wire going from console to bass unit, it was loose from where I had moved the unit to insert another device (RCA Jacks). Apparently if the wire from the unit is loose, it over - rides the volume and by default adjusts it to 30. Additionally, I reset the system console and bass unit console, during this process. Try this, it might fix your problem.

What is wrong with my TV's Ypbpr input???


is this the only input where the TV does this? what happens when you disconnect this source? May be your source.

If the TV does this no matter what input, perhaps you have some leaky caps on the power supply PCB,. These can usually be detected by their bulging tops & usually self replaced (if you have the wherewithall) at a cost of less than $10.00

Volume decreases during use


Very simple. It is not a defective unit. Simply a matter of volume attenuation, hold the "function" and "grove"keys for aprox 5 seconds until a message saying vac off appears. Problem solved. Resets itself eveytime the unit is turned off .
enjoy!!!

My system shot down during a movie


The reason why your receiver is going in protect is because there is a short circuit happening. This would either be on your speaker wires, speakers or receiver itself. What you want to do to check would be:
1. Unhook all sources and speakers from your receiver.
2. Turn on your receiver and crank up the volume to maximum, if your receiver does not shutdown or go on protect then the receiver is OK. If it does shutdown and go on protect then its an internal problem on the receiver and you would need to send that over to an authorized service center.
3. Hook up a source and 1 speaker. Play something from the source or the fm tuner, Crank Up the volume to about 46 or 47 volume. If the receiver does not shutdown, its good.
4. Hook up a second speaker and repeat the process until you encounter the pop and shut down
if for example you encounter the pop on the 4th speaker, try changing the speaker wires.
5. If the receiver still shuts down then it would be a short on the speaker itself and it would need to go to an authorized service center.

Volume control


Try to boot into Safe Mode (windows 7: press F8 on boot, or Win10: start: type msconfig, enter, then boot tab: [x] Safe boot, press enter). It will be more successful more often in Safe Mode, but whether you can get into Safe Mode or not, click Start, type System Restore, press enter. (You may have to go to System Properties: System Protection tab, then System Restore.) When you restore to a previous restore point, you may find the weirdness to go away. If your problems are due to malware having been installed, you may have to choose restore points further and further back in your restore point history until you get back to before the malware, then the badness goes away. System Restore does not affect your data, only the Windows files.
