No sound, no display lights--------Venturer 5-CD ultra bass stereo system
When it first cut out, I didn't know what to think. I left it alone for a day, then plug it in and everything seemed to be working just fine. Well the standby lights were on. Then I press power and as I watched it, the light slowly started to dim away,and the only lights you can just barely see are the track numbers, and there was still no sound. Everything else works fine---Play, stop, open/close, all those functions

If the unit is controlled by a remote, the symptom you are experiencing could be cause by a function only available on the remote. I discovered this with my Yamaha 5-CD disc changer. However, my unit doesn't have an integrated Stereo. Your unit may mean that the remote handles more features. Search for a button that says MODE or AUX. If you still have the User Manual with the system, check to see what these buttons describe as controlling which features. Check back with me.
Real low bass is mostly vibration. Anything that has a "mega bass" 'enancement' is cutting corners to make up for bass-reproduction shortcomings. Speakers measuring 2-5/8' have no business reproducing real bass. Blown speakers would be silent. Torn cones from excessive volume might sound like unwanted vibration. Your vibration might be a resonance of the unit's own housing, mounting hardware or something nearby. Try moving it to another location.
These units are not economically repairable. If you like it and you think it's broken you might snag a whole new on on eBay with wise bidding.
The only way to replace the wires is to trace them out, or splice them. This will require some disassembly of the unit to replace them, but if enough of the wires are present, you might be able to solder them to other pieces of wire to get it to work.
I tried to find a manual online, but it didn't come up at any of the sites. Your best best would be to contact Venture support, and here is their website: http://www.venturer.com/request.aspx
Good luck, and hope this helps.
The Bose Lifestyle 5 is not a 5.1 surround sound system. It is a 2.1 sound system, meaning it is stereo with a subwoofer/bass unit. Having two speakers that can be angled in different directions, the Bose Lifestyle 5 employs Bose direct/reflecting technology,providing greater audio presence. Still, it is definitely not a surround sound system.
Make sure that Loudness switch is turned off & bass is not boasted up. Most cars have small cheap speakers that can't handle the bass. also its better to cut the low frequency from the woofer using a passive or active crossover. Most nowadays head units have got some sort of built in crossover. Refer to your head unit manual.
Put the system in standby (ie off but plugged
in) then whilst pressing down the record button and the X-BASS/DEMO
button, press the PRESET DOWN (i.e.left hand one) button until "CLEAR
ALL" appears, then power on your system.
This gave me some functionality back i.e. i can play normal wave CD's but not mp3 ones....
same thing happened to me. turn the system off, unplug it. then back on and after you switch to CD mode (for some reason the CD tray will not eject unless in CD mode), once the system tries to lock on to a specific CD tray, hold the eject button down for 5 seconds. that worked for me. may have been dumb luck but can't hurt.
