Bose 700 universal remote pairing issues
How can I pair the universal remote for Bose 700 soundbar if I dont have the app setup ?
I had issues in my wifi setup (no I don't have any issues in connecting 3 laptops, phones, tv and an older soundbar to my wifi), but for the moment lets assume that the router configuration needs a change --soI had to uninstall the bose music app so that I can try configuring it with hotspot from another mobile.
At this stage I was advised to use the remote (TV + skip right) to start the connection process in the app, but my remote got unpaired from the soundbar. I tried below approaches
-->Pressing Power on speaker + Power on remote together does not work
-->left arrow + vol down makes the six function buttons blink, but again not able to pair with the soundbar.
-->Tried unplugging sound bar and removing and putting back the batteries in the remote and repeating above steps did not help either.
Still unsuccessful in pairing remote and soundbar--as a result I am not able to configure the app too.
Its three days since I bought the soundbar, but on calling customer support I was told customer support engineer would visit in 2-3 working days with an applicable charge of Rs.1500.
I am disappointed deeply with Bose---either keep the setup really simple and seamless OR arrange for your engineer to visit for installation as is done for most TVs/electronic devices in India.
Hoping the answers here will help others facing the same issue too.
