Hey guys, I've got a minor issue that is causing an annoying problem. I have no expertise in home theater set-up or anything of that nature. My landlord had set-up a Bose home theater system but he is now abroad and unavailable to help me with this problem: Our bose home theater system's volume will not increase or decrease. It is set up to our directv and ps3. When we increase or decrease the volume on the bose remote control, the receiver will show the volume increasing/decreasing. However, the actual volume coming from the speakers does not change. So it is essentially "locked" at a pretty low volume - which is annoying because we live in a city with much outside disturbances from the street. Any suggestions would help. I am not good at these issues, so it could be a very obvious fix. Thanks in advance, and like I said, this could be a very simple fix!

I've never heard of such an issue. Perhaps your landlord put the 'secret landlord volume lock' in place. :D

Not much we can tell you without knowing which Bose system it is (please provide a link to its manual for us), and how the components in question are connected to it. Regards, Wayne A. Pflughaupt

LOL, it has to be the secret landlord lock, that bose bass module pumps out such a strong bass it can cause cracks in walls.
