Remote does not work

Applies to:

If the soundbar is not responding to power, volume and source selection commands from the provided remote, try the following:

Operate the remote within 6 metres (20 feet) of the soundbar, as this is its maximum operating range

Remove any obstructions that may be blocking the remote signal receivers on the far-left and right ends of the front of the soundbar

Install a set of new batteries in the remote. If you've recently replaced the batteries, make sure that the positions of the + and - symbols on the batteries match the + and - markings inside the battery compartment

Installing the batteries

Reset the soundbar by unplugging its power cable from the power socket, waiting 30 seconds and then firmly plugging the power cable back into a working socket

If you purchased the optional Bose Soundbar Universal Remote and its six source icons are blinking, the remote is not associated with the soundbar.

To re-associate the remote with the soundbar:

  1. On the remote, press and hold the Volume Down and Left Navigation buttons for five seconds to clear the remote’s pairing list
  2. Press the Centre Navigation button once to put the remote into pairing mode
  3. Open the Bose Music app and tap on the image of the soundbar shown in the bottom-right corner
  4. Select Settings > Pair New Remote 
  5. Follow the instructions in the app
  6. Once the remote has been found, tap Continue to complete the pairing process

To configure this remote to operate other devices, refer to Programming the universal remote.
