My display has not been working for years. Replaced c17 cap wich was 33uF 63 volts on lower pcb board( only one on system) . Old cap was good so this was not the problem. Replaced c16 wich was 100uF 25 volts with a 100uF 63volts. Display works, old cap read low. Both c17, and c16 are located on the lower left hand corner of the larger pcb looking from the front of the unit. Hope this helps.

OK talked with Bose just a minute ago and they were able to correct the issue.

We disabled the power cord from the back of the media console (where the HDMI cables connect) and left it off for a minute or two.

Powered the media console back on and it is working as expected.

Was told by the Bose tech that the common reason for this issue is due to the use of the HDMI cables that have a propritary security protocol that is used between the media console and the component it is attached to (ie TV, Cable/Sat, BluRay ...ect).

I asked if there was a BIOS upgrade if it was indeed a "handshaking" issue and was told there was not one (yet).

If one becomes available, it will be shipped via mail on a CD\DVD that can be used in a CD\DVD player that is connected to the media console using the HDMI cable.

Hope this helps!

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.

No display lights on bose lifestyle 8 home theatre. System works though.


Displays die quite often on receivers just one of those things that happens.

Bose is pretty good about repair cost and timely in their turnaround. Here is a link to the support page

I would guess a replacement display would run about $150 installed plus you will have to ship your unit to them.

They like to do "flat rate" service plans which is one of those 50/50 deals most of the time you are better off just paying for the repair versus dealing with a service contract but you will have to find out whats available for your model.

Hope that helps

Everything works with my bose lifestyle model 5 music center but the display wont light up. Do I have a bulb out or something ? How can I fix this, its driving me nuts! Thanks for any help you can give....


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.

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.
