Product will not turn on
If your product appears to be receiving power but won't power on as expected:
Be sure the system is set up properly and all connections are secure.
A connection may have come loose or may be connected incorrectly. For more info, see Setting up your product.
Check the power connections at your product and at the power source.
Be sure the power connections to your product are secure both to the AC (mains) outlet and to your product. For more info, see Connecting to power.
Try both the buttons on the product and the buttons on the remote control.
Check if either the buttons on your product or the buttons on your remote can operate your product. If buttons work on one but not the other, see Remote is intermittent or does not control your Bose product or Buttons on product do not work or work intermittently.
Be sure the power cord is connected to a working power outlet.
If the outlet is controlled by a wall switch, be sure the switch is on. You can also verify if the outlet works by connecting another electronic device, such as a lamp. If connected to a power strip (or surge protector), try bypassing the power strip and plug the power cord directly to a wall outlet.
Use only the Bose power supply intended for your product.
It is recommended to use only the Bose power supply included with your product. Using a third party power supply is not recommended. If it is necessary to connect a third party power supply, however, be sure the specs on the power supply match the power requirement found in your product specs.

If your bass module has a dual-voltage switch, be sure the correct voltage setting is shown. If you need to change the switch setting, unplug the bass module power cord, change the setting, then reconnect the power cord.
If your media center power supply has a voltage switch, be sure the correct voltage is selected.
On the bottom of a dual voltage power supply, there is a 230V/115V switch. If your power supply has this switch, disconnect it from the power outlet, set the switch to the voltage used in your region, then reconnect power.
