I cannot stream Spotify on my home speaker 500, the app shows C7-SC3101 error and would never recover if I don’t unplug the speaker.
my bose home app is up to date, I’m using iphone7, Spotify premium. WiFi is good.
might have something to do with the Bose app? I don’t know, it’s really annoying. Please assist, thanks,
Thanks for reaching out and welcome to the Bose Community Forums.
I am sorry about this, let's see if we can get this resolved for you. I would like to start by confirming a few things:
I look forward to resolving this with you.

thanks for getting back, here’s to your questions:
1. No this is not my first time setting up Spotify on my speaker, it is something that happens 10% of the time.
2. I suppose that you can control Bose with one app at a time, so this scenario happens when I’m using Spotify.
3. I’m based in Taiwan.
4. iPhone 7
might be something to do with app overlaps? Or with the fact that I’m connecting Bose to other Bluetooth devices?
Thank you for providing that information.
What I would recommend we do in this situation, is start by uninstalling and reinstalling the Bose Music app on your iPhone. As it seems to be intermittent, this would be the best place to start to resolve this.
If we see the error message again after doing this, the next thing to do would be to reboot your router. You would want to disconnect it from the power for at least 30 seconds before reconnecting and letting it power back on.
Let me know how you get on with this.
I face exactly the same issue on Bose 700 soundbar. It got resolved by rebooting the modem and the speakers, but the error again cropped up within a day. Happens whenever I try to play spotify through the Bose Music app. Please resolve as its quite annoying.
Thank you for joining us and for trying that troubleshooting.
Have you also tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Bose Music app?
You should also try removing and re-adding the Spotify account on the Bose Music app. To do this you want to navigate to the 'My Bose' home page and opening the account settings by tapping the icon of the person in the top right-hand corner. From here select 'manage music services', then your Spotify account where it will give you the option to remove it. It can then be re-added from the 'manage music services' page.
Let me know how you get on.

I am experiencing a similar problem. The only difference is I was previously using the Bose Music app, playing Spotify mixes, and it does not work.

I know this long thread is about the 500 speaker but I have a Bose Home Portable, had for a week and I've seen this error code 100 times from the app. I have had to reboot and unlinked things many times to get spotify working. Everything else plays fine. Its something between the bose music app and spotify. It's bad enough if not fixed soon I'm returning for a different brand. Too bad since it's a nice speaker.
This is quite annoying actually. I was asked by one of the experts here to reinstall the bose music app and relogin to Spotify. With this fix it works ok for some time, but shows the same error after some time.
With hit and trials I found a fix but it's not a 100% solution. If you go on Spotify through Bose music app, search or select a playlist and play a track from there it seems to work fine. But it doesn't solve the intended purpose of having an option to play directly from the Presets on Bose music app.
I have had Bose 700 soundbar setup for about 6 months now, and I have observed that Bose sound is good but on the part of connectivity, Bose need to work hard if it needs to compete with many other good brands out there. I have faced so many issues while trying to connect my soundbar with my Samsung TV through HDMI arc, but could not succeed and finally connected using optical cable. Bose could not provide a solution and in my opinion this is a breach of consumer law since Bose's products do not match to the specifications they advertise.
High time Bose. Come up with a fix.
