Will not play rented DVD's

Hi,

I have a Bose LifeStyle system that is about 3 years old and we have problems playing rented DVD's. These DVD's play just fine in my Sony DVD player, but not the Bose. Any suggestions

    Our system is about 4 months old. Lately the DVD has a very 'jittery' output as if it is skipping forward. I tried a lens cleaner without success. I'd be interested if this is a common BOSE problem as the system is still under warranty. However this is a real problem as if it were a component system instead of an integrated system sending it back for service would not mean a completely blank screen in a quiet room.

This may sound silly, but have you tried a DVD lens cleaner?

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)

I have a Bose Lifestyle 35 Series II and want to know whether it's compatible with a DVD+RW. I'll burn it in a Toshiba recorder, finalize it and then play it on the Bose. Will it play?


Hi This what Bose say about formats

"The Lifestyle® 35 system plays DVD-video in interlaced format, as well as music on CD, CD-R (recordable) and CD-RW (re-writable). The system also plays MP3 files on CD and AM/FM radio. "

So by the sound of this i suspec that you may struggle with DVD/RW. but my best advice is try it.

All you have to do is carefully take the top off and clean the "Iris" which is the reader with a little alcohol and cotton swab. Bose will charge $165 plus shipping to do this. Go to website metacafe.com and search how to clean DVD players and it will show a video, easy to understand.

DVD problem - now only plays in black and white


Check the video connections on the back of the Bose unit. I have a Lifestyle 38 and had an issue with video only playing in black & white. Turned out to be a loose connection.
