Question about Bose Lifestyle 28 System

2 Answers

Good Video connection/No sound.

My daughter tripped over the wires. I checked for wire disconnections and found nothing. I also looked for breaks and found nothing there either.
I checked the settings and the remotes for the TV and the Bose.
What am I missing? Good Video but no sound. Bose Lifestyle 28. When I press the Speakers or Surround button on the remote nothing appears on the display except a momentary dot in the lower right corner.

Arcam avr-250 shuts off?


New problem?

Did you move it recently? Sometimes the speaker wires are stripped too long and short out against each other in the back

Disconnect EVERYTHING from the unit but please take great care to document how everything is connected so you can connect it again the same way.

IF the unit powers on fine with everything dis-connected, I can assume that you have a connections problem with the speaker wires being the most likely culprit.

Make sure your speaker wires are not stripped too long where bare copper is touching other terminals OR make sure the speaker wire is pushed cleanly into the speaker connections without stray wires to cause a short.

Also make sure you have the speaker wires connected to the proper terminals and are not mis-wired into the wrong terminals.

IF it still shuts down after a few seconds with nothing connected then there is an internal problem that will need to be repaired.

Good luck.

When you turn player on: Screen said "Hello" , then "Protection"


Sounds simple... usually "protection" means that a speaker or a speaker wire is shorted out. Or that the volume is just too damned high... how loud is the receiver's volume setting? If the bass tone control is jacked and the loudness button is on, even with no shorted wires, the amp can go into protection from an internal overdrive. Might be that you just need to do like your mom says and turn it down!
If you have an ohmmeter, speaker or wiring problems are easy to test, if you don't, you can still do it all mechanically... here's how
Turn off the receiver and start by disconnecting your speaker wires at the back of the receiver. With all of the speaker wires removed, does the thing still go into protection when you turn it back on?
If not, good. If it does, find a service center.
Re-connect the speakers to the appropriate terminals one speaker at a time, turning off the receiver each time you make a connection. After connecting one speaker, turn the receiver on and see if it shuts down. If not, then turn it off and add one more speaker.
Do this until you find the culprit. Leave that suspected bad speaker's wires disconnected from the receiver and test all the rest, connecting all but the bad wires.
Now, disconnect the speaker from the other end of the bad wires and spread the bare wires apart so they don't short out. Connect the wires ONLY at the amplifier end and turn the amp back on. Protection?
If yes, the wire is shorted out somewhere. got cats?? If everything is OK, turn off the receiver and reconnect the speaker and test again. Make sure the wires aren't shorted at the back of the speaker. You really need to check all the speakers to make sure their connections are "clean" and make sure that there are no stray wire strands anywhere or that the wires aren't stripped too much so they might be able to short out. After the wires are connected to either a speaker or an amplifier, you shouldn't be able top see much of any bare wire, but you already know that, right?
Some folks strip way too much off the wire and the wires simply touch the wrong things and ... badness happens.
If all the connections are clean and the receiver still shuts down when this speaker is connected and the receiver is turned on, swap a working speaker onto these wires, leaving the suspect speaker disconnected and making sure the other bare wires won't touch anything or each other.
Back on with the working speaker... good? If so, then we're determining that the problem is probably in that one speaker. If not, then we have a deeper problem.
Reconnect the suspect speaker to the other wires and try again. Good? Then you have "fixed" the problem by cleaning up the wiring connections. If it shuts down again, then you need to fix or replace the bad speaker.
If everything works now with the volume down and such, then just use a little self control. If it's still messed up, you may need a trip to the service shop
Good Luck

A crackling or popping sound coming from the right speaker. I have switched speakers and wires and nothing changes


If you physically switched the speaker along with the wiring at the back (switched connector) and the popping is still from the same side, then it has to be your receiver/amplifier.try knocking lightly on it to see if you can provoke it, that would mean bad internal connections and is in need of repair. good luck

Audio problems with Bose 321 system


Hi, sounds like the centre front speaker is disconnected. Check the wiring on that, if all is good there then a fault most likely with the amp. To make sure try connecting a different speaker to the centre channel just for test purpose to eliminate a speaker/cable fault. Best of luck

I keep getting a messasge that says PROTECT on my Harman/Kardon receiver and then shts off


Disconnect all your speakers at the receiver, then turn the receiver back on. Turn on CD/DVD/Cable etc, then turn up the volume, if it does Not say "protect" you know the problem is in a speaker or a wire. If all goes well, re connect one speaker at a time with the receiver off, then turn on, turn up volume. Repeat until all connected or receiver goes back into protection. Once you find the bad wire/speaker, disconnect the bad wire at the receiver, then reconnect the remaining wires and test again. Now, disconnect the wire at the speaker causing the problem and reconnect it at the receiver. Make sure the wires are separated at the speaker side and; more importantly, cleanly connected at the receiver. If you have any freyed wires at the receiver, cut and strip, then twist the braid neatly. There should only be 1/2" of stripped wire, enough to fit under the terminal when you screw it down. Now, turn on the receiver and test again. If it does not go into protection, reconnect the speaker and test again. If it goes into protection at this point, you know its a speaker problem. If possible, disassemble the speaker to look at the internal wiring, if it looks good, look for a crossover network; this will look like a small printed circuit board. If it's really dusty, use some "dust off" and spray away the dust. look at the circuitry for visible damage, ie. brown or black spots. If you see them, there's your problem and the speaker needs repaired or replaced. To double check, you can meter the speaker for resistance. If your multimeter is digital and says 1..... it's a short. If it analog with a needle, it'll peg to the right. This is a very common problem. Hope this helps

Lifestyle 30. sound stops, i unplug and plug back in and works for short time and quits. unpllug and plug back and works a short time and quits.


What you describe, sounds like a speaker short. Are you using the Bose wiring with their ends and no cuts in the wire? (splices) It's not too uncommon to extend or shorten a wire. The fastest way to find a short is to disconnect your speakers at the speaker. Be careful to keep the wires separate if they are not on plugs and turn on. If it cuts off (power) or says (protection) on the display that lets you know your speakers are ok and you have a short in the system or a wire. Next, disconnect wires at the sub one by one and test until it causes the system to cut off or short. Leave that speaker disconnected from the sub and test with all others connected. Now you've located the channel that has the problem. First just connect the wire again to the sub. if it cuts out, run a new wire from the sub to the spkr, for testing purposes make it a short wire if possible and test. If you need to use a Bose plug at the sub to test spkrs go buy one at Bose, don't cut your factory wire just yet. If a new plug works then cut and replace. Make sure you use electrical tape not scotch tape or duct tape. If it works fine, test the new plug on the old wire and see if it works. If it does your done, if it doesn't, run a new wire to the speaker with the new plug on it. If after all this and it still doesn't work. Sounds confusing I know, It's just process of elimination, that's how we do it in the field. If all your speakers are disconnected and it still cuts out, it could be the sub or the receiver. Take it to a Bose store and they can check each piece for functionality. If it needs repaired let Bose do it. Hope this helps.

Incompatible Video Signal


Salutations taco loco,

After reading over your owners manual I can only offer once piece of advice. You should be able to reset your system by unplugging it from the power fully for 60 seconds. This is usually used during a power interruption or surge, but may assist in this case as well.

I hope this helps.

Sound problem


I found out that it was simply my speaker connection. That is, it seemed like a good contact, but in fact the stero was reading "pulsing" from the speakers and shutting off to protect itself. I simply cleaned off the wires and carefully reconnected them.
