What is the model of your TV?

samsung QLED

Thank you
In the settings menu of the connected device (i.e. cable box or Blu-ray player), look for audio settings. Many devices that send audio over HDMI might have an option for ARC or CEC; try enabling these. If the device connects to the TV and then to your Bose system, look for these settings in both the device and TV menus. (Note: CEC may be referred by a different name in the device menu - Anynet+)

Just to be sure, Check the volume level of the Bose system.
Be sure the system volume is not turned down.
Using the volume control, gradually increase the volume level.

The bar is working great it’s just the 700 isn’t working.

Could you try to increase the volume on your Bose Using the volume control?

Customer Replay

I can use the volume no problem with the Bose remote

Let us try to reset your soundbar
Power off the soundbar.
Disconnect the power cord from the soundbar or power outlet.
If an accessory bass module or surround speakers are connected, disconnect the power cords for them also.
Tip: If accessory surround speakers are connected, disconnect power from both surround speaker receivers.
After 30 seconds, reconnect power to the soundbar.
Wait about 30 seconds for the soundbar to reboot.
If you disconnected power cords from an accessory bass module or surround speakers in step 3, reconnect them.
