Bose Lifestyle 28 /Sound - no picture

Hi,
Hope you can help.  We've had our Bose Lifestyle for about 3 years now and it's always functioned fine.  Today, we moved the tv and components out to vacuum and when we returned them to their 'home' the Bose suddenly stopped putting out video.  We tried the obvious issues, such as loose and disconnected cables - to no avail.  Even tried turning off the power and resetting the tv and Bose.  This has happened once or twice before and my husband has managed to get things going again.  This time nada!  Is it possible the s-video cable simply crapped out?

well s video is a good picture it is not the best and when you kink one or bend it too far they are no good i recommend using either the rgb cables or YPbPr also known as component video either of these cables will provide better image than the s video

SOURCE: 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

Bose to PS3 via Digital Audio Optical

This way you can get Full 5.1 surround sound, and good picture quality, also, go to the bose menu and set the optical source to your PS3.

No video at all!


I recommend you switch from using HDMI cables to using component (R/G/B RCA-style) cables. HD picture is superior through component cabling, and solves several HD picture issues, including HDCP (High Def Copy Protection) through HDMI issue. Component cabling should eliminate this problem.

I hope that helps.

I have installed the v30 bose lifestyle system but I can not get any video output on my Samsung led tv. I have tried the hdmi cable and the component cable. It both doesn't work.please help me with this


I recommend you stick with component cabling.

Having no picture at all generally suggests the V30 is trying a video mode your TV does not support:

  1. video type (PAL or NTSC)
  2. Progressive scan
  3. an HD resolution beyond your TV's range.
I hope that helps.

When playing a dvd the color is in b&w only


I have had exactly this problem when changing TVs. Initially I had the sVideo out cable from the Bose with a scart plug on TV end - that worked fine on old TV. On new TV, first Samsung, second SOny, got Black and white video picture. To get it to work I used a component video cable - this is a short svideo cable with a an audio cable at the Bose end. It splits into a 3way R G B cable within 2- 3 inches at Bose end. I then plugged rgb extension cables into this and TV and worked perfectly.
I found the answer to this by errr...... reading the BOse doucumentation I reveived when I bought the Lifestyle system 5 years ago.
Good luck
Peter

When playing a dvd it black and white no color


what output connection are you using? (svideo can cause this if it's not properly supported on both devices)
What format is the video stream NTFS or PAL? some devices don't like one or the other format. This issue could be linked to your dvd player or your TV so please investigate what I have suggested and post back here if you have no luck :O)

Picture is black and white with a dvd movie


If you're using the 3 component cables for video, one is probably defective or not connected well.

Bose lifestyle v20 sound but no video


The problem turned out to be the TV itself. Somehow all the a/v and component cable inputs on the back of the TV got disabled. After finding then consulting the TV manual online (the TV is about 8 years old), we found there was a way to reset the TV to its original factory settings. Voila, the a/v and component cable inputs were enabled again, and everything worked correctly afterwards.

Lifestyle 12 speaks - new HDTV


mount to wall, brackets available to purcahse on loads of on line sites. and from bose direct cost 5 dolurs to 50 dollars eack depending how fancy you want to be.
would recomment also distancing the left right satellites as you will be amazed how much improvement in sound is gained from a well defined centre channel.

also if you want to be really smart. its really not necessary to see the centre satelliet and it could simply sit of the stand behind the tv. with no problem. plus you could use the tv audio input to make the tv as a centre channel. you would be surprised how well that works. make sure you disable the tvs steroe function or your surround sound will not sound too surround....

finally if you have lifestyle series II make sure you conect the 5.1 input to the bass box to your tv. and get rid of the bose cd player , put it out of sight, and loose the remote. will work even better than it did before !
