Bose 700 Alexa muted

There is something odd happening with my Alexa.

Sometimes Alexa randomly gets muted (red light on sound bar appears).


However, when I try to I unmute her the touch button does not respond. And I am unable to unmute her using any other method.


it is not until I unplug the soundbar and reset it, that i am able to unmute her.

Is my soundbar defective? Should I exchange it?

Re: Bose 700 Alexa muted

Hi Kauve,


Thank you for the post, and I'm sorry to hear about the issues you're having with your system.


The mute button on the Soundbar can only be engaged/disengaged using the button on the Soundbar.  If the button isn't responding or the microphone disables itself, it means that there may be an issue with the touch sensor on the system.  I would recommend contacting your local support center via phone to arrange for a replacement.


Please let us know if you have any other questions.


Best Regards,
