Question about Bose Lifestyle 28 System

2 Answers

(Bose lifestyle 28) DVD picture is distorted, shadowy and difficult to discern

My lifestyle 28 is connected to a 15 year old RCA monitor. Everything works fine but the connections are a little creative since the instructions do not correspond exactly with what I have. I have finally decided to try a DVD and have to switch the TV in and out yellow plug to go from TV to DVD. The sound is okay but the picture on the TV is shadowy, bad color and bands of static are there. I'm hoping someone would be familiar enough with this atypical setup to tell me what to change. Thanks. Phyllis

BOSE = Buy Other Stereo Equipment

I would hazard a guess that your 15 year old monitor is far better than the Lifestyle system you are connecting to it. Craigslist it and find someone for over marketed brands to take it off your hands.

Try the settings setup and adjust the brightness, video format, or video black level. If you're using component connections then adjust the video output. You can scroll system setup through the remote control settings button.

DVD drawer will not open - stuck dvd inside


My only suggestion is to press and hold the eject button for a period of time (15 - 30 seconds). This might unlock the drawer. If not, I would contact Bose Customer Service directly.

You probably have the RCA jacks plugged into the wrong jack located on the back of the television. They can be confusing at times.

Can I connect my pc to a lifestyle 28 system


If you want to connect your PC's audio output to the Bose Lifestyle system, simply get a cable with 3.5mm stereo male plug on one end, and dual RCA male plugs on the other end. The 3.5mm side will plug in to your PC's LINE OUT jack. The two RCA male connectors will plug in to the Bose AUX IN jacks. On the Bose console (or the remote control) select AUX as the audio source. Your PC's sound will play through the Bose Lifestyle system.

For persons having a large library of MP3 music files on their PC, this is a great way to listen to the music on your hard disk.

No sound Bose Lifestyle 38 III


I am quite sure that the indicator lights should be green. The blinking yellow likely indicates that there is no communication between the head and the audiomass. Verify that the connections are tight and then try powering off (unplugging) the system (both head and audiomass) for 30 seconds and then powering on again. That will often re-establish communications.

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

Flashing / ghosting with Bose Lifestyle V30


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. Component cabling from your devices should eliminate your problems.

I hope that helps.
