The power button on Bose speakers and soundbars does not function to turn them on. With Bose speakers and soundbars, the only method to turn them on is through the use of remote control.
There could be a variety of issues with your remote control, and if your remote stops working, you will be unable to turn on your speaker or soundbar.
You could be dealing with one of the following two issues: The remote control has ceased working or the remote has been misplaced.
If your Bose speaker or soundbar has stopped operating due to a malfunctioning remote, there is still a chance to switch it on. Let’s have a look at how.
Troubleshooting a Bose remote control that is not working and a speaker or soundbar that will not turn on:
Double-check that your speaker is properly connected to a functioning outlet. Try switching out the outlet that is 100 percent functional if you are unsure. If you have a surge protector, try plugging it straight into a working outlet instead of via it.
Make sure that both ends of the power line are correctly connected before proceeding. Replace the batteries in the remote control. If you have another device that uses the same remote control, you can use it to see if your remote is functioning properly or not. Unplug the speaker/soundbar and wait for at least 1 minute before plugging it back in to see whether it works again.
Furthermore, if your remote is lost, you will not be able to turn on your Bose speaker/soundbar until you obtain a replacement remote.
Making Bose Speakers and Soundbars work with or without an original remote
If you have misplaced the remote control for your Bose speaker or soundbar, you have two options:
- Use a universal remote control;
- Purchase a second remote control for your Bose speaker or soundbar;
- Create your own remote control for your Bose speaker or soundbar
Remote Control (Universal Remote Control)
There are a plethora of universal remote controls available on the market. A universal remote control is not limited to a single type of device. It has the ability to control a large number of devices. Many people already have a universal remote control at their disposal at home. This is the most effective technique of turning on your Bose speaker or soundbar if you do not have the original remote control.
Replacement for the Bose remote control
If you have misplaced your original Bose remote, you can purchase a replacement. You may get a replacement remote for your specific Bose speaker or soundbar on the Bose website. If you are unable to locate it there, contact your local Bose support, who will be able to supply you with a better solution, just as they have done for so many other customers.
