Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority. Sorry to hear you’re having trouble. Does this happen with any other source (phone/ipod/computer)? Does it seem to happen only on the bluetooth connection? If you plug a device in directly to the aux/minijack port, does it play consistently that way?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
no just with the blue tooth connection
Expert:  Nathan replied 2 years ago.
That usually indicates a hardware problem with the bose, meaning a bad bluetooth transceiver inside. Have you tested any other BT connections besides the tablet?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
no that's the only one I have
Expert:  Nathan replied 2 years ago.
Okay well it is difficult to say with any certainty without testing another device.Have you ever updated the firmware on the speaker?What tablet are you using?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
when are we done ! i'm tired of waiting!
Expert:  Nathan replied 2 years ago.
I asked you some follow up questions, I need to know more information to be able to help you.If you haven't ever updated the bose, that is the next step here, which I'm happy to guide you through, but I need to hear back from you to do so.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
what do you mean by updating the bose? it's the first time I've heard of this.
Expert:  Nathan replied 2 years ago.
That is why I asked. The bose is capable of having its internal firmware (operating system) updated, to keep pace with newer devices made after the bose was manufactured.That update process will be the next step here, as a potential fix.Go here: for the update file and instructions. If this process still doesn't help, it would indicate either an incompatibility with your particular tablet, or a hardware issue with the bose. In either case, the next option would be using the wired minijack/aux connection rather than bluetooth.Nathan
