Check the video cable at the back.

    Check the video cable at the back, when you get no color on a single device, it is often because of a bad video connection cable.

    Try moving the cables and see if you get color, test a replacement cable, or a different kind of connection. For example, if you connect through HDMI cable, try RCA A/V cables.

    If still no luck, test the DVD on a different TV, if picture is B&W, then DVD unit is defective.

Pink and green colours seem to be too vibrant when watching dvd's on lifestyle 48


I have a Lifestyle 48 which suddenly started producing a pink and green image when playing DVDs (regular TV was fine.) After speaking with Bose support, I did the following which resolved the problem:

1. Removed power from the video switcher. (or from the bose itself if you don't use the switcher.)

2. Reattach all the video cables on the back of the bose and ensure all connections to the TV and switcher (if applicable) are tight.

After performing these steps, my DVD image went back to normal. I suspect it was a loose cable in the end, but no harm in performing the power disconnect.

The voices on DVDs are too low and are drowned out


The centre channel normally has the voices - sounds like it:
  • isn't connected,
  • isn't working or
  • is turned down too far
  • or the system could be faulty

I have a Bose Lifestyle 35 Series II and want to know whether it's compatible with a DVD+RW. I'll burn it in a Toshiba recorder, finalize it and then play it on the Bose. Will it play?


Hi This what Bose say about formats

"The Lifestyle® 35 system plays DVD-video in interlaced format, as well as music on CD, CD-R (recordable) and CD-RW (re-writable). The system also plays MP3 files on CD and AM/FM radio. "

So by the sound of this i suspec that you may struggle with DVD/RW. but my best advice is try it.

Connect lifestyle 48 to plasma and dvr


You need to buy a Bose VS 2, video enhancer. Your cable/sattelite, vcr and aux connect to the VS 2 and the VS2 connects one HDMI cable to the TV. The VS2 then upconverts DVDs played on the lifestyle through the VS2/HDMI.

Go to the "Bose" menu screen viewing on your TV (make sure no dvd is in the player) Go to your Video controls and check your output, chances are, if your using the component output your player is set to "S-Video". Should fix the problem. Hope this helps. If it's still not viewing correctly, post a comment and I will help you some more

Center speaker static noise


Sorry sp106s, you have to take that to bose service center.
Its a complicated problem. Something is wrong in the amplifier
section inside your sub box. Only authorize servicemen can
open it, not any tech'n can.

Good Luck
