Hello All. I'm in the USA and I have a Lifestyle 18 Model AV18 Media Center that stopped being able to receive the optical audio from my LG smart TV. I've had the TV sound connected to the Bose through an optical cord for approximately 5 years now and it has been working flawlessly. Nothing has recently changed or been added to the system. All was working fine until this morning when I turned on the TV with the Bose system and no sound was heard. I tried a different optical cord and connecting a cd player with the optical cord but there is still no sound. I checked the TV settings to ensure the selection was still on external speaker and it was. I then checked the settings on the Bose system and they were still set correctly to TV.
With the optical cord plugged into the TV, the end that connects to the Bose has a red light so the signal is coming through. Is it possible that the optical connection on the Bose system has gone bad? If so does anyone know if this could be replaced or repaired?
