My remote stopped working

First check the batteries. Then clean all of the connections. If still nada then check out the remote by pointing it at an am radio set to 600khz about 6 inches away and listen for beeping when you press any button. If nothing happens then the remote is trashed and needs to be replaced.

No sound

Sometimes it is as simple as pulling the powerplugs of the system and then powering it up again. This resets the system and may get you going again. Also make sure that the cable between the center and the bass module is well plugged in. to be sure unplug and replug on both ends. If that does not work your unit needs to go back to Bose.

A new remote is the simplest and best bet. I know of no way to repair a remote without making it irreparable. Though you might check the infrared LED i the front. Does the light on the remote illuminate when you press a button?(assuming it has that.)

Bose Lifestyle 28 Sound Problem

I also get this problem sometimes with mine. Usually when you call Bose they suggest that you do a "hard" reset meaning you unplug the power cord from the wall and wait about one min. Then plug the unit back in and it should work.
The other thing that you can try if the system still isn't working is to check that all the wires running into and out of the sub-woofer are all plugged in and aren't loose.

If either of these two solutions don't work you can alway call Bose tech support @ 1-877-210-3782 (they are open Monday Friday: 8:30 AM 8:00 PM ET)

I hd this same problem a couple of months ago. Disconttect all peripherals (any exterior amps, roommates) plug the power connector and wait for two minutes, while waiting connect the main system. try turning the LS 48 on. If this clears thing turn off the LS 48 and connect the peripheral one at a time testing with each new connection. Happy hunting.

Bose - Custom EQ Error: 10

Hi, I have just had the same problem and the advice from BOSE was to turn everything off and disconnect the sub from the main unit, wait 10 mins and turn everything back on, making sure to turn the sub on first.

As it happens i then noticed I had connected the sub via the BOSE link speakers plug to the main unit rather than the correct "MAIN" socket. - so if you are reading this you know I am a fool! But the sound now works.

Basically BOSE confirmed the reason for error 10 is that the main unit is not detecting the sub and speakers.

Anyway, I hope my foolish mistake, helps save time and blushes for anyone reading this link.

Lifestyle 38 and HD

I have also have this problem with a lifestyle 28 system. Bose sent me a new cable then a software update. The problem remained, after contacting Bose and unplugging cables and powering down the system this solved the problem. However 2 days after and the problem has re-appeared. Back to square one. I should add that this is the second unit I have had the retailer exchanged the last one because of the same problem.

Lifestyle 12 receiver vs lifestyle 12 II

yes will work just fine, a slight difference in the output gain from the control baord, but in almost all other cases you wont know the difference. just make sure especially if you intend to use the old cd unit with the new bassbox that if you connect the digital source to to (say dvd player) that you initially use bose remote to turn on bass baox and set volume.
