According to other threads this is due to a bad capacitor (either C19 or C16). It is a 33uF capacitor rated at 25V. Needs to be replaced by a 33uF higher voltage (like 63V). Have the same issue but have not yet completed the fix. Please perform a search on the forum and you will find it. It says is on the lower left side of the console pcb.

BOSE LIFESTYLE 50 REMOTE CONTROL NOT WORKING


FOR THE BOSE LIFESTYLE 50 SYSTEM (Model P1 - Personal Music Center remote)
You can re-calibrate the remote first by following the steps below:
1. press and hold down on the display screen in the top middle area of the remote
2. After a few seconds the word CAL will appear in the middle and the word SOURCE will appear in the top left area of the remote.
3. Press the SOURCE button.
4. The word KEYPAD will appear in the top right area of the remote
5. Press the KEYPAD button and a small circle will appear in the bottom right of the remote.
6. Press the Circle
This should've recalibrated the remote.
If you need to relink the remote to the system, HOLD down the mute button while having the remote as close as possible to the unit. You will hear a beep . Release the button, after a pause , you will hear the remote beep twice.
This re-links the remote to your system
If the backlight is not working, your options are
1. Spend $349 and get a new one from Bose Or
2.Spend $220 and get a used one on E-bayOR
3. Use your remote with the lights on so that you can see the display :-)...the cheapest way OR Invest in an LED Book light that you can clamp on the remote and use that for your light ($9.99)

Bose Lifestyle 12 Music Center DISPLAY display light number its not working anymore


I have had problems similar to this on many devices and it is usually a dud LED (light). You can technically de-solder the current LED and replace it but it's not a job for anybody without very good soldering skills.

Check to see if your system is still in warranty as this should be covered. Any electronics repair shop should be able to fix this for you.

Yes. But you need your Model 5 music center connected. Just like any receiver. -Without the main LS head unit, this will not be able to turn on.

Bose lifestyle fault code 802


Here's what the Bose support website suggests.  Good Luck!
Messages displayed during a Music Information Update
Messages may appear on your media center display during a Music Information Update. If you see a message with instructions to call Bose, and a three-digit code such as "Error Code 802" or "Failed 172" while performing a Music Information Update, it does not necessarily mean there's something wrong with the system. Performing a media center reset and installing the update again may address the issue.

To reset your media center, follow these steps:
  1. Turn the media center off. Wait two minutes

  2. Unplug the power cord from the media center. Wait 30 seconds

  3. Reconnect the power cord

  4. Wait until "Bose Lifestyle" disappears from the screen

Note: After a reset, you will need to wait several minutes before playing stored music (3 to 20 minutes, depending on how many CDs have been stored). All other sources will be available immediately after the system powers up.

If you have any additional questions about these messages, please contactBose® Technical Support or call 1-800-278-1281.
