Lifestyle 535 Setup Button not Working (Factory Reset Doesn't Help)
Bose product name: Lifestyle 535
Firmware Version: 02.21.00 - U
My remote control stopped working. After getting a replacement, I was able to pair it with the console, but while trying to re-program the TV, cable box, and Apple TV to the new remote control, I realized the Setup button on the console wasn't working (I press it and it doesn't do anything).
I made a simple reset procedure (pressing the power button on the console for 5 seconds). This gave me the "system information" screen with the setup button flashing red, which was proceeded by the system update using the USB port.
After trying the update, it told me that I had the latest version, but this process gets stuck in an endless loop. I can exit the update by turning off and on the console but I'm still not able to control the TV, cable box, or Apple TV with my new Bose remote control.
I read on a forum topic that some people had success with a similar problem by doing a factory reset. I did the whole procedure of turning off the console, unplugging it, pressing the "source" and "volume -" buttons at the same time, and reconnecting the power cord while leaving these buttons pressed until the Bose logo flashes twice. The problem is that the logo only comes on once and after this, I get a clock and a crossed hand over the console with the setup button flashing in amber (I'm assuming it means don't touch console for some time). It stays like that for hours without anything happening.
I can turn off the console and on again going through the same old process mentioned above.
I can watch TV, I just need all the remote controls.
What else I can do?
