My new Bose home 500 stopped displaying album artwork and artist while playing Pandora. It either displays the preset number or the volume icon. I have two speakers and the second one works fine.
Thanks for the post, and I'm sorry to hear about the issues you're having with your system.
Have you attempted any troubleshooting yet? First I would like you to remove power from the Home Speaker 500 that isn't functioning correctly, then reconnect after a full minute.
Let us know so we can get this resolved.

Thank you. I noticed the same thing. So far, when I unplug the speaker for about 10 seconds and then plug it back in again it seems to work. This is a hassle because I frequently move the speaker in between rooms. This has nothing to do with my internet being off - my internet is on all the time. It has to be a bug in the speaker software. Hopefully Bose will fix it. Thanks for your help.
I received a Bose 500 for Christmas and am also having display problems. The artwork display works for a few songs than goes dark. Switching to standby or rebooting the speaker only works temporarily, then the artwork display goes dark again after a few songs. I mostly use the speaker with Amazon music, occasionally with Bluetooth. I usually use Alexa commands to control the speaker. Otherwise, the speaker works fine, but it’s annoying for it not to work perfectly, Bose gets a premium price because high quality is expected.
Thanks for trying the troubleshooting and we'd like to take a further look into these issues. If you could gather log files from the system when the issue occurs, we can reach out to you via PM to gather more information. A link to collecting logs can be found HERE.
Thank you for you continued patience on this issue, and we hope to get this resolved.
