SOURCE: my bose pmcii lcd remote control does not receive a signal from a bose lifestyle 48 receiver

Have you tried using the remote antenna supplied with the Bose system? This connects to the "Remote antenna" socket on the rear of the media centre and is made up of 2 parts: a shielded section (black in colour) that runs past any sources of interference - mains or signal cables, other electronics products - and the unshielded antenna (clear plastic covered copper wire) that must be fully extended vertically to act as an aerial. Position this away from sources of interference and as close to the second room as possible (Bose do a longer version, free of charge in some countries....)
The remotes only have a range of up to 20metres - this will drop the more walls it passes through and the thicker the walls. Any interference can affect this - radio transmitting equipment (WiFi, video sender, but especially products transmitting on the same frequency - 27MHz or 40MHz, e.g wirless thermostats or alarm systems....) or products with poorly shielded transformers. Experiment with swtiching off other electical equipment (including lights if they have a transformer - e.g. halogen spot lamps). If you identify a source, can you move it away.....?

SOURCE: Home Audio Bose 48 - Remote not working

Had an issue with the Bose Remote RC38t1-27 not working at all. Changes batteries twice to no avail. Called Bose Tech support who walked me through the fix. I unplugged the power cord connected in the back of the system. Waited for 30 seconds or so and plugged it back into the system. Also made sure the power cord was uncoiled/unbundled as the RF (Radio Frequency) signal is within. Bingo!

My bose system does not respond to the remote. It is a patio system. Inside works fine but I cannot turn the outside off or correct the volume. I just got a new remote- same problem


Maybe, just Maybe you could try turning the power off for the sub woofer, the zone next and then the Bose itself. Power up the woofer and zone before the Bose and it may pick it up, works when the Apple TV drops out

"Dead" Remotes Can Be Saved
How to Re-Start Your "Dead" Remote Control
This only takes about a minute and will restart 1 in 3 "Dead" Original Remote Controls. Good Luck!
-----------------------------
Step 1- Pull the batteries out of the remote and leave them out until Step 4.
Step 2- Press and release each and every button one at a time on the remote control until every button has been pressed and released at least once!
Step 3- If your remote has slide switches, you must move the switch to each position then repeat the button pushing in Step 2.
(When you're done, be sure to put the slide switch in the correct position to operate the unit the remote came with!)
Step 4- Put the batteries back into the remote, being very careful to install them correctly.
New batteries should be used if you're not sure about the old ones.
Step 5- Try the remote.
Special Note:
If you have a digital camera, camcorder or camera phone you can test the remote to see if it is emitting a signal. Face the remote towards the lens of the digital unit until you can see the front of the remote. Depress any button on the remote. You should see a light (steady, blink or flashing) being emitted from the remote. If you do then the problem might not be the remote but the sensor on the unit.
If it works, Great!

Remote control codes for bose


The DirectTV Website has a page to find remote control codes, and it lists lists four different remote controls to choose from. Find it here:

http://www.directv.com/DTVAPP/global/contentPage.jsp?assetId=3580003&

I fired "Bose Lifestyle" into the first choice and it gave me the numbers
31229

here are the instructions from that page:
Setup Instructions
  • Set the "Mode Switch" to AV 2.
  • Press and hold the "Mute" button and the "Select" button until the visible LED blinks twice.
  • Enter the 5 digit Code above.
  • Try your new code and tell us how it worked!

  • I hope that helped.

    I hd this same problem a couple of months ago. Disconttect all peripherals (any exterior amps, roommates) plug the power connector and wait for two minutes, while waiting connect the main system. try turning the LS 48 on. If this clears thing turn off the LS 48 and connect the peripheral one at a time testing with each new connection. Happy hunting.

On the control console, press and hold setup until the system information screen displays. line 5 will display the currently installed console software version. on the remote press any button. Line 10 will display the currently installed remote software version. Do a bose system update. On the control console press setup. on the remote control, press the down arrow until update is highlighted and press ok. make sure yes is highlighed and press ok. on the control console plug a clean usb drive into the usb port.when prompted, remove the usb drive and connect it to a computer. open the drive and double click on the download_launcher file, which should bring you to an update page on bose.com. Once complete, put it back in the control console. When the update is complete remove the usb.

    Bose link AL8 connection problems


    I had a similar problem, though intermittent, using my 48 with the AL8 and room-mate speakers. I kept getting a "no signal received from media centre" message on the remote in the second room.

    Assuming that the batteries are ok and you don't have a hardware problem, the problem might be that the 48 is not picking up the signal from your remote control in your second room. The signal from your remote control is a radio signal that goes directly to the 48 - it doesn't communicate via the AL8 receiver. I think the orange light will only turn green once a signal is being transmitted from the transmitter unit plugged into your 48 media centre, and this won't start transmitting until the media centre gets a signal from the remote telling it to switch on.

    The aerial for all the remote controls is contained in the power cable that links the 48 lifestyle unit to your VS-2 unit. Make sure that this is uncoiled and oriented vertically, as far away from other cables as possible.

    If this doesn't work, you can get an antenna extender that plugs into the RC socket on the back of the lifestyle system. Again, orient this vertically. You can get these from Bose.

    Is there anything in the wall that might be blocking the radio signal? Lots of metalwork for example?

    If orienting the power cable from the VS-2 doesn't do the trick, I suggest that you go to a local Bose shop. (An actual Bose shop, not just an electrical or hifi store stocking Bose products). I explained my problem and the tech guy gave me an extender gratis (its basically just an FM aerial wire by the look of it). I installed it this morning and, so far, its seems to be working ok. As my unit is fairly new, he also offered to have the kit back in the shop to check it all out and, if that didn't work gave me Bose technical support number. He even offered, if all else failed, to send a guy out to my home to get it working - and I didn't even buy it from there!

    Hope this helps.

    I have same issue. This happened on 12/31/2007 after 13 months of operation. Though remote is not controlling the unit, it controls TV. I went to BOSE showroom (Chennai, India) and remote worked perfectly with their GS display unit. Then I went to service center. Serviceman promised me to send a CD with software upgrade. Let me wait for a day or 2 receive CD and test it. Have you got any solution.

    The IR "bug" provided with the Bose 18/28/38/48 models is an IR emitter which sends out IR control codes to another component. The system is designed to have the Bose remote control be used to control the TV and the dish box. The Bose media center has a strong IR blaster in the front which will flood your room with the IR codes to control your TV or Dish box. The TV sensing device must be placed at a location on the TV where specific voltages can be detected. The location will vary depending on display type you have - plasma, LCD, tube or rear projection.
