Bose solo won't turn on. Unplug to reset works but takes countless retries. Tries several outlets with same results. One it turns on it works, until turned off or auto off for a few minutes.
I have the Bose Solo 10 and it did the same as yours. I did all of the suggested fixes and nothing worked. I changed out the IR sensor and it worked for a while and it went out again.I'm an electronic engineer so I unplugged it and did the reset and got the acknowledgement tone. That told me the the units power supply and electronics was good because it does a self check when you reset it. I took the IR board and did a bench test on it. The board worked on the bench. When I put it back in I checked the voltage on pin 7 of the IR sensor, no voltage. I checked the voltage on the main PCB and I had 3.2volts. Checked the ribbon connector and the voltage was getting to the connector on the IR board but it had a bad connection from the ribbon to the board. I put a jumper from the ribbon to the IR board and it's been working all day with no problem. I checked and a lot of people are having the same problem the we experienced. Bose should have a recall on the connector on the IR board because you cannot turn this unit on manually. When you have this problem you can't anything with this unit because it is too big for a paper weight.

Bose remote control rc18t1-27 will not work at all
Have the remote tested--shops use a card when remote is pointed at it and buttons pressed a strip on the card lights if remote is sending.
Many digital cameras will react in same way in a dark room with a flash on their display cases.
In our shop we fix a lot of remotes and usual cost is under 10 dollars.
