No sound from my 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?

    We have the similar problem. Except a twist. We never touched or moved anything. No audio from the speakers. I am not seeing any light in the woofer. Am I supposed to?

SOURCE: Bose Lifestyle V20 Error 180

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!

SOURCE: I just replaced the dvd in my bose lifestyle 28

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.

SOURCE: Harmony 900 to control Bose Lifestyle problem.

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)

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..

Really works!

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.)

I had the same problem with a Lifestyle 35 system. Use a DVD lens-cleaning disk, followed by the latest firmware disk from Bose. This should clear up the problem.

About an hour in a movie, my sound will stop for a second and start back up. This happens about every minute. My system is about 4 years old. Is there an update disc that I need?

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


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.
