Notice

The Bose Community Forum was launched at a time when robust online support was not available for Bose customers. Over the past several years we have added new online service channels that provide a more interactive and complete digital experience. Additionally, we have enhanced the My Bose Account capabilities to deliver a more personalized and self-service experience. As a result, Bose has made the decision to close Community Forum for Consumer electronics products on September 30th. The Bose Pro portion of the Community will still operate as usual.


Please visit our support homepage to experience one of our many other digital service channels or simply use your Community log-in credentials to sign in to your My Bose Account to view your orders and view support options.


Thank you to all who have contributed and benefited from interacting in our Community. We look forward to continuing to serve you online.


Regards,
Bose Customer Service Team

Possibly the HDMI port has failed.  However, first I would try a different HDMI cable.  You could also try a factory reset of your Bose.

Hello Ste Tonk and thank you for reaching out. 

I can certainly help with that! To factory reset your soundbar, you can follow these steps on our support website here.

If you have the older SoundTouch 300 soundbar. You can follow these steps instead. 

I hope this helps!
