First check the batteries. Then clean all of the connections. If still nada then check out the remote by pointing it at an am radio set to 600khz about 6 inches away and listen for beeping when you press any button. If nothing happens then the remote is trashed and needs to be replaced.
Sometimes it is as simple as pulling the powerplugs of the system and then powering it up again. This resets the system and may get you going again. Also make sure that the cable between the center and the bass module is well plugged in. to be sure unplug and replug on both ends. If that does not work your unit needs to go back to Bose.
A new remote is the simplest and best bet. I know of no way to repair a remote without making it irreparable. Though you might check the infrared LED i the front. Does the light on the remote illuminate when you press a button?(assuming it has that.)
I also get this problem sometimes with mine. Usually when you call Bose they suggest that you do a "hard" reset meaning you unplug the power cord from the wall and wait about one min. Then plug the unit back in and it should work. The other thing that you can try if the system still isn't working is to check that all the wires running into and out of the sub-woofer are all plugged in and aren't loose.
If either of these two solutions don't work you can alway call Bose tech support @ 1-877-210-3782 (they are open Monday – Friday: 8:30 AM – 8:00 PM ET)
The sub is bad.the power supply inside the sub is your problem.If your unit comes on it could also be a defective dsp pcb in the sub.everything in the sub runs the head unit.If you send to bose they have a 175. flat rate.
I have also have this problem with a lifestyle 28 system. Bose sent me a new cable then a software update. The problem remained, after contacting Bose and unplugging cables and powering down the system this solved the problem. However 2 days after and the problem has re-appeared. Back to square one. I should add that this is the second unit I have had the retailer exchanged the last one because of the same problem.
yes will work just fine, a slight difference in the output gain from the control baord, but in almost all other cases you wont know the difference. just make sure especially if you intend to use the old cd unit with the new bassbox that if you connect the digital source to to (say dvd player) that you initially use bose remote to turn on bass baox and set volume.
