Home Theater Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello, My name is ***** ***** I'll be assisting you. I'm sorry you're having problems. By far the most common cause of this problem, is a glitch in the cable box processing.Please follow the steps below:1) Shut the TV off, and then disconnect the cable/SAT box AND the TV from power (unplug their power cords).2) If using an HDMI cable, disconnect and reconnect the HDMI cable on both ends when the cable box is unplugged from power (make sure it's secure on both ends).3) Press and hold the power button on the TV itself (not the remote) for 10 full seconds while the set is unplugged, then release the power button.4) Plug the cable box AND the TV back into power, then turn the TV on and attempt to watch a program.
This should restore the sound. However if it does not, then please try another source- such as a DVD player on the TV and see if that has sound. This tells us whether or not the TV, or the cable/SAT box itself is causing the problem- since we already know the Bose works fine with it's BlueTooth- it is not a likely culprit.

Thank you. Yes I understand all of that. So did you try a DVD player and if so what were the results?
Okay I understand. Even though the optical cable is emitting light- does not mean it's functional. Fibre will always emit light, even when there's a break in the cable. Do you have another optical cable you can try?
Alright. Unfortunately if the issue goes beyond the cable then it would appear to be inherent to the Bose- even though the Blue Tooth is working. I would suggest trying to unplug the Bose and leave it unplugged for several hours or more in the hopes the processor resets and then plug it back in to see if that works. If not, then the next step is to swap the optical cable. However if the issue goes beyond those steps, then this would indicate a hardware issue in the Bose requiring service. Since they are the only ones that service their gear, you would need to contact them directly at the number below:
