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

Bose Soundbar 500 stuck in update mode

Hi everyone,

 

I have buy Soundbar 500 in near 2020, stuck in update mode, with the scrolling white light on the left-hand-side for a week now!

I have trawled the community, i have try agian more than recovery and reset but this disapointed.

I even tried from the remote, press, and hold the Power button and Skip forward button for 5 seconds, this didn't HELP, I thought the issue is with remote batteries and I replaced with new batteries but still, the bar isn't responding to remote.

I’m plugged in an Ethernet cable. Patiently waiting with fingers crosse but this not working

Sorry to hear that your Soundbar 500 is stuck in an update loop. I will be happy to help. 

I see that you have tried various troubleshooting methods. I would recommend that you use recovery mode that will help refresh the system and push the update through.
