Bose SoundTouch 300 suddenly stopped working
Today morning I realized that my Bose sound touch 300 sound bar doesnt turn on. It doesnt respond to anything. I tired factory reset and all other trouble shooting options online. Its like its a dead device. Looks like its unable to recieve power (basic hardware issues).
I read online to see that there are other people who are also facing this issue. Its been just 18 months and its surprising that something this basic would kill the device. I also have base module and I worried when its going to stop working. I called Bose and they said the repair would cost me $150.
I would have gladly paid if I did someting (drop it etc) that yeilded this. I was kind of surpised to see that other are also facing this baisc power issue and Bose doesnt have an option for these scenarios. Having worked at Bose myself in the past I am very disappointed in the responsibility Bose is taking in these basic hardware issue usecases.
Writing here to learn more about experiences of others who faced similar issues. The posts I read online ended with Bose CS agent advising to factory reset but didnt offer any other solution.
