SOURCE: Bose Lifestyle 28 not playing DVD

my brother i am not familiar with that model but due to my electroincs experience all dvd players are make up of the the same principle.there is a flat strip that leads from the lens of your dvd player kindly remove it and replace it this strip is probably broken after doing this get a dvd lens cleaner and clean your dvd lens and your on if you cannot do it your self take it to a tech os that they can handle it.this job should cost about $75.00 US. enjoy Henry Thomas from Belize

SOURCE: how do i get my Bose Lifestyle remote to control

call bose tech support and register your lifestyle system with them, they in turn will start sending you update CD's those CD's may include the new IR databases that would help you find the right code. the other alternative is to call VIaSat and find out what brand's IR codes they are using( and in the IR menu on the bose try that brand's codes) A lot of manufacturers will use the codes from Motorola(worth a shot) the alternative option is to program a universal remote to control your bose, and all your equipment (if your equipment is hidden in a closet, get an RF remote, I program these for my clients all the time (for their bose systems))

SOURCE: can I connect my pc to a lifestyle 28 system

If you want to connect your PC's audio output to the Bose Lifestyle system, simply get a cable with 3.5mm stereo male plug on one end, and dual RCA male plugs on the other end. The 3.5mm side will plug in to your PC's LINE OUT jack. The two RCA male connectors will plug in to the Bose AUX IN jacks. On the Bose console (or the remote control) select AUX as the audio source. Your PC's sound will play through the Bose Lifestyle system.

For persons having a large library of MP3 music files on their PC, this is a great way to listen to the music on your hard disk.

Setup code list and setup instructions to some popular model remote controls are given. Select the 'Timeslide' option from the drop-down list by the 'Sidebar' at the display window. It will make search easy.

The problem is that the broadcasting antenna at the top of the remote is very a very thin wire wrapped around a heavy cylindrical magnet and its solder points are extremely weak. You most likely dropped it and it came loose. I re-soldered mine and it worked perfectly.... until it broke again. The leads are very small and hard to fix.
Chalk it up to poor design.
It is hard to take apart... I got mine apart by wedging a screwdriver in and twisting until it popped apart. (nothing broke) I started at a bottom corner and worked my way up the side until it came loose. It is an easy fix if you know how to solder.

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.)

Can't hook up my bose system to my logitech harmony remote


From what I found on Giigle searches, it appears you need to buy a converter. Here is one of the links I found where someone gave a review on the remote and is in the same boat as you. But then I found this on Youtube that might help you. This link shows how to set up Logitech Harmony One with Bose Lifestyle 28. I don't know if this is the remote you have but maybe if you follow the steps, it might work.

This next link is the review, see the 2nd review where they talk about needing a converter.

Bose dvd player powering on automatic

If you are referring to the Lifestyle system powering on, when you press the CD/DVD button on the remote control, that is the way the system is supposed to work. If this is not what you are referring to, please provide clear details on your issue. Thanks.

Bose lifestyle 28 no power

There's no easy way to put this. This media center will need a repair. If you know the outlet works, and the power supply works. It couldn't be anything that's easily fixable. Make sure you don't have a dual-voltage power supply (red switch for 120v/230-240v). If so, change to 120v for us power. Otherwise this is pretty straight forward. You can call bose for a repair- 800-367-4008. $165 + tax flat rate. New 1 year warranty.

(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.
