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

Re: Bose Soundbar 700 microphone on/off indicator with solid red light

Hi LadyFafa,

 

Thank you for posting and welcome to the community. I'm sorry to hear you're having trouble with the microphone on your Soundbar 700.

 

If the red LED is still showing and the troubleshooting in this thread has not helped we would recommend contacting the Technical Support team for your area. You can find their contact information HERE and they will be happy to help. 

 

All the best.

Re: Bose Soundbar 700 microphone on/off indicator with solid red light

Hi I had the same problem with the mic off button. I taped from the front and over the top and to the back, one inch from each side of the mic button and at some place it worked.

Re: Bose Soundbar 700 microphone on/off indicator with solid red light

Thanks for the prior responses.... I experienced the same issue with the red LED Illuminated defining the sound bar 700 microphone was “off”.  The microphone turned on by tapping the top of the sound bar approximately 1/2” behind the microphone icon.

I had a problem with this light, but then i pressed the o button and then i pressed the microphone button and as a result the microphone turned back on. I am not sure if this is normal though 

 

Thanks - Joshi

Re: Bose Soundbar 700 microphone on/off indicator with solid red light

I accidentally turned the mic off when cleaning the soundbar. After reading the comments here, instead of using my fingertip, I placed my finger flat on top of the soundbar and tapped on and around the mic symbol, and that worked.
