Question about Bose Lifestyle 48 System

Lifestyle 48 Acoustic module doesn't work

My recently purchased Lifetsyle 48 Series III currently is not producing any sound. I don't think it has anything to do with the media centre as this seems to respond as expected using the remote. I even tested the speakers, making a direct connection to the media centre and they worked fine. I have re-checked all the connections and wiring about 1 hundred times. I also turned the acoustimass off several times @ 10 minutes intervals. I just can't figure it. All the connections are correct. They are all positioned firmly. All my powerpoints are fine. I have done all the usual tests i.e. mute on/off, CD on, checked the CD, checked volume etc. The digital display on the media centre is OK but no response from the acoustimass. Any ideas on this delema? PS: I am not sure what the audio drivers are or device manager is.

There is a power fault in the acoustimass module but this can only be fixed by a qualified Bose Technician.Bad varistors should be replaced before the fuse.If this doesn't solve it,then the complete power board should be replaced.

Call Bose tech support. They fix or replace these under warranty. I have a lifestyle 12, original model, after two repairs in. Ore than 10 years, I was allowed to upgrade to top of the line for the price difference.

Our Bose lifestyle 5 has no sound does the Bose CD disk restore the sound card. Mfg.1997 too old to do this must we buy a new one or does this cost a lot for repair ?


This can be repaired of it's later than a series 1. (not sure if the 1997 model was a series 1) Repair cost will be $225 plus tax (flat rate). Shipping is split between you and Bose. They give you a new 1 year warranty.
Otherwise, Bose can have you trade this in for about 25% off a new, current system.
-If this still powers up, make sure the small 1/8" portion of the input cable (plugged into "system control 1") is in good condition, because you may just need to replace that input cable for a no audio situation. If it's a different series, it will say "zone 1" I think.
In either case, you should call Bose tech support about this. (800-367-4008) Make sure you're with your system so they know what series of LS5 this is.

Only sound for cd/dvd


Could be damaged cable between the media centre and bass module (check along cable length for damage, kinks or at DIN plug ends for bent/damaged pins), faulty media centre (unlikely) or fault in the bass module....
