Double check to be sure the TV is on the proper input.

Can you still play a DVD? If DVDs still play, reset the system by unplugging the power cord for a minute. The menus should return.

If DVDs don't play either you may have accidentally changed a video setting. Fortunately you can access the video settings from series II and III systems with the buttons on top of the console. If would be best to call Bose tech support so they can walk you though accessing the video settings. 800-367-4008

The dvd will only playback in black and white not color


I do not have any experience with this system, but the first thing I would try is to use the remote control to manually adjust the screen settings. I would try adjusting the color saturation level (if it is set to zero, the screen will be black and white). If it is set to midrange, then try looking at the display mode, in case there is a "black & white" screen mode. Also, look in the back of the owner's manual for a troubleshooting chart, which might have this problem listed. Try calling the store where you bought it and ask the salesman for help. If it is under warranty, call the company support line (usually a free call). Good luck.

I have a Coby dvd 505 home theater system and it's playing dvd's only in black and white Any suggestions?


There are a few possibilities. 1) You have the system on wrong broadcast system. Press the TV.Sys button on the remote. (In the US, you need the NTSC (analog) broadcast for older TVs). If you have lost the original remote, you need a replacement that matches the feature. See http://www.remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=gmi&uuid=12937326385240&smodel=DVD505&brand_pn=COBY_DVD505 for a substitute remote. 2) You have mismatched cables/inputs.

For the second issue, a composite video cable could be connected to a component video input. If both devices have component video, get a component video cable (red, blue and green for the video, separate red/white cable for audio); it isn't included with the player. Otherwise connect to the composite (AV) connections on the TV (yellow for video, red/white for audio).

If needed, you can reset the player as follows:
****RESET THE DVD PLAYER BACK TO THE DEFAULT SETTING***
1) Open the DVD tray.
2) Press the "Setup" button.
3) On the "Down" arrow, press it three times.
4) On the "Right' arrow, press it once.
5) On the "Down" arrow, press it three times
6) On the "Right" arrow, press it once, then press "Play/Sel" button.
7) Press the Setup button to exit.
*The default setting will take affect as soon as you press the setup button (step 6).

I hope this helps.

I have a lifestyle 18 bose system which only plays region 2 DVDs. How can I get it to play region 1 as well?


Hi, check below the media center/DVD player as to what region your system was fixed into (indicated by a number inside a globe). This is located underneath the unit just beside the serial number. FI the system indicates that your system indeed is set to region-2 then proceed as follows. IF it marks a different number region, then bring the unit to the Bose service center.

Steps in UNLOCKING REGION CODE of media center:

1. Load a DVD and wait for the display to show "REGION CODE ERROR, CONTACT BOSE"
2. Once this comes out, press eject button on your remote control but do not remove DVD disc
3. Press the following button commands in sequence (make sure they are in sequence and are pressed by looking into the media center display where a small green dot should blink indicating that each command is received).
4. First you need to initiate the system region change on the remote control:
a.while the tray is out and the DVD is still in the tray, press and release "RIGHT" arrow button
b. then press and release "UP" arrow button
c. after, press and release "SHUFFLE" button
d. then press and release "STOP" (black square symbol) button
e. lastly, press and release "MUTE" button and system should go on mute (indicated in the LCD display

After this, you now can change the region code by doing the following button press on your remote control:
1. While the DVD tray is out still and the DVD disc is in the tray, press and release "STOP" button (black square mark)
2. Press and release "SHUFFLE" button
3. Press and release number "0" button on numeric keypad
4. Lastly, press and release "ENTER" button on your remote control and the DVD tray should go back inside the DVD. The disc then should start loading and playing resumes.
5. Allow the DVD disc to run for a few minutes (if you want enjoy a full movie) to keep the region change resident before switching off again.

Now enjoy your Bose Lfiestyle DVD System REGION FREE!!!

Do note, this does not apply to Bose DVD system that are locked to region-1

Glad to be of service always!

Hi, The quetiopn is about SONY DVD home theatre system DAV-HDZ235. For some reason I have big black box on a TV screen at time DVD playing. The picture appears and box dissapears when I pushong volume on...


Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help. Sounds like you are inadvertently activating P.I.P (picture in picture) with your remote. Perhaps the P.I.P button is next to the volume control. The black box you mention, is a blank channel. That means the way you have your cable box set up, there is no signal coming in to that p.i.p. tuner. Press the P.I.P. button and see if that's what's happening.

If this advise helped you, please give me a rating so I can make my boss happy! Thanks for using Fixya.com

Insignia NS-DXA1 APT remote control doesn't work


Set your TV input to match the input your have your Insigna connected to. Then run the Insignia setup. You are getting a distorted screen because you probably have the Insignia connected to channel 3 and the TV on channel 4.
