Question about Bose Lifestyle 28 System
I recently moved and set up my Bose Lifestyle 28 system (it's a few years old now). Now I recieve no sound and the system doesn't recognize that the speakers are hooked up. Even though I've checked the connection multiple times, there's no sound. Any suggestiuons?

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!

if there is a rca input available you can go to a local electronics store such as radio shack and pick up a rca MALE to 1/8 MALE cable

Replaced the DVD? Did you replace the mechanism, or the entire media center? If you replaced the dvd mechanism, you might be out of luck getting firmware to support the rest of the hardware. If you mean that you replaced the media center, the firmware is available as part of a normal software update disc through Bose. To check sw and fw-> when the system is off, press and hold 'enter' on the media center and tap the 'store' button until you see "console sw" on the display. Same with fw.

Press the system button on the Lifestyle remote control. Move right to see a preview of the remote control. Press the down button to move into the submenus. Go down to IR Control. Select "on" System receives IR commands from another remote that has been taught to operate this system. Press exit and take a breath and try your Harmony remote. It should work. I had the same problem and this fixed it after hours of screwing around. Good Luck

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)

Testimonial: "Thanks for your support. Unfortunately i had to send the system to Bose for repairs. Thanks anyways. "
If your capable of replacing components yourself - Change capacitor C19 (33uF 63v) its on the board next to the display.
This cap goes leaky/dry after time, as there is a lot of ripple on it. This is what causes the display to go dim or blank. changing this cap brings the display back on most cases. Also maybe change the other capacitors near it while you are there..
