Follow these steps to change the video setting from European to North American:

With the media center turned off, use the controls on its front panel to follow these steps:
  1. Press and hold the Enter button on the media center.
  2. While holding the Enter button down, press the Store button. Selections will appear on the media center display each time you press Store.
  3. When Video appears as the selection on the display, release the Store and Enter buttons.
  4. Use the Volume up and down buttons to scroll through the Video options.
  5. Stop scrolling at the proper selection:
  • For a component connection only, select:
  • -NTSC COMPONENT (in N. America)
  • -PAL COMPONENT (outside North America)
  • For a component connection and progressive scan, select NTSC PROGRESSIVE.
6. With the proper selection made, press Store to confirm the
selection and leave the Video options.

I hope that helps.

Bose Lifestyle 12 Music Center DISPLAY display light number its not working anymore


I have had problems similar to this on many devices and it is usually a dud LED (light). You can technically de-solder the current LED and replace it but it's not a job for anybody without very good soldering skills.

Check to see if your system is still in warranty as this should be covered. Any electronics repair shop should be able to fix this for you.

Bose products are highly proprietary. If they have non-standard connectors from the amp or in the speakers I'd take that as a clue they're NOT compatible with other manufacturers' products.

Bose Lifestyle 48 System play's dvd in black & white only also connect to vs-2 video enhacer hello, my bose lifestyle 48 only plays DVD's in black and white. I can't find a setting or a reason why it...


Your s-video cable at the back of your media center is loose. This will cause black and white internal video and is known to fall out or just become loose from minor movement. (it's the nature of s-video cables) This should solve your problem. This is the s-video cable that connects to the VS2 and media center.
If this doesn't solve the problem (I'd be surprised), just reset it by unplugging the DC power cable at the side of the VS-2 for about 30+ seconds and plug it back in..

Bose lifestyle 28 will not come on?


The Bose Lifestyle System has two power connection. One is the adaptor for the media center/DVD and the other one is the bass module/ subwoofer. Both has physical indicators showing that power is present. If your pwoer adaptor is ok, then the media center display should show "BOSE LIFESTYLE SYSTEMS" on startup. The bass module power module should be OK when you see a green blinking or steady linght underneath.

If only the media center/DVD has no display then there is something wrong with your pwer adaptor and should be sent for repair.

Hope I have helped you

Want to test to see if bose lifestyle 18 works.


Hi sorry but what do you mean that you have lifestyle 18 system? The lifestyle 18 system consist of the media center/DVD player, the bass module, the satellite speakers and the RF remote control (aside from tons of cables)

If you have the media center/DVD only, then you require the power adaptor. you can test if the media center is functioning if the LCD display is working. you can also connect an external powered speaker or an amplifier fro mteh AUX out behind the media center.

Do note that doing so will only give you limited control of the system since you require the whole lot to make everything work properly.

Glad to be of service.
