According to other threads this is due to a bad capacitor (either C19 or C16). It is a 33uF capacitor rated at 25V. Needs to be replaced by a 33uF higher voltage (like 63V). Have the same issue but have not yet completed the fix. Please perform a search on the forum and you will find it. It says is on the lower left side of the console pcb.

SOURCE: Our Bose lifestyle 5 has no sound does the Bose CD

This can be repaired of it's later than a series 1. (not sure if the 1997 model was a series 1) Repair cost will be $225 plus tax (flat rate). Shipping is split between you and Bose. They give you a new 1 year warranty.
Otherwise, Bose can have you trade this in for about 25% off a new, current system.
-If this still powers up, make sure the small 1/8" portion of the input cable (plugged into "system control 1") is in good condition, because you may just need to replace that input cable for a no audio situation. If it's a different series, it will say "zone 1" I think.
In either case, you should call Bose tech support about this. (800-367-4008) Make sure you're with your system so they know what series of LS5 this is.

They are tight with the files, I copied songs to new harddrive using nortons ghost, but when in installed harddrive back song looked to play as normal but with sound... Nearly but no luck.
Talking with service man, said its different format, i thought it was FAT32 (computer said) but service man said different.

Bose lifestyle 5. Display is erratic when playing cd or radio.


Change capacitor C19 (33uF 63v) next to the dispaly. This capacitor goes leaky over time, and causes ripple on the display which makes it dim or even dissapear completley. Also worth doing all the capacitors near to C19 while your there just in case.

changing C19 worked for me. Some people even up rate the capacitor to 100v, but 63v id the manufacturers reccomended.

Bose Lifestyle 5 ~ dead display fix


Hi the fix for a dead display is a faulty capacitor. Depending upon which board version you have, you need to replace the 33 uF / 63 volt capaitor. On some units this is C19 on the display board, on other units this capacitor is mounted on the main board and re-numbered, there is only one 33 uF on the unit so you should be able to find it.

I believe there is a USB port on the back of the unit. Has anyone been able to connect to it? Can anything be seen of the files on the hard drive?

Horiz. lines across top of screen.


I agree with solution #2

I recently had my phillips 27" model 27PT6341/07 repaired after warranty expired due to white lines appearing at the top of the screen. The shop advised that it was a capacitor giving me the problem. So, after getting it back, I examined the repair job and the shop had replaced a capacitor at the back of the main board, next to the rear rca inputs. It is labeled 10uf 100v. I was told that it would fail again soon because it is a manufactures defect. For me it is at location 2465. Here are a couple of photos of the part.
