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: Bose 321 DVD drive failure

Found another help site similar to FixYa where a person had posted that they successfully replaced their failed DVD ROM drive in their BOSE 3-2-1 Series I unit with a later model Toshiba SD-M1712 drive. There are 2 plastic trim bits and the metal DVD drive unit cover that need to be swapped between the old drive and the new PC type drive to complete the repair. I located and ordered a new drive and spent last evening removing the old drive from the BOSE. To remove the old drive all that is really necessary is to remove the lid from the BOSE unit and pop off a black steel holdown assembly across the top of the failed drive. Once that is done the old just drive lifts out and the replacement is virtually the same as swapping out a drive in your PC. I am awaiting arrival of the replacement OEM drive ($25) from some place in Texas. This just may work. BOSE wants hundreds of bucks and several weeks to repair their crappy unit. I will never purchase BOSE again. I had to also purchase a power supply in years past for this very lightly used unit and that was $300 and a lot of aggravation using the BOSE repair system. I have trouble just throwing this unit away because we spent $1000 hard earned $'s to buy the "best". I was certainly fooled. If this doesn't work I'm only out $25.

SOURCE: bose lifestyle 28 will not come on?

The Bose Lifestyle System has two power connection. One is the adaptor for the media center/DVD and the other one is the bass module/ subwoofer. Both has physical indicators showing that power is present. If your pwoer adaptor is ok, then the media center display should show "BOSE LIFESTYLE SYSTEMS" on startup. The bass module power module should be OK when you see a green blinking or steady linght underneath.

If only the media center/DVD has no display then there is something wrong with your pwer adaptor and should be sent for repair.

Hope I have helped you

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: Bose Lifestyle 28 Sound Problem

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)

Check your video output settings in the menu. If you are using a composite video output and do not have the system sut up for it, you will get a B&W picture. Check your menu settings.

Dvd player quit on my lifestyle 28


send back to BOSE and get a new mainboard,,,the problem is probably NOT the DVD player itself, but the video decoding ASIC, which burns out on thes e mainboards if the "settings" from the remote won't show on the TV,,,then you are getting no video decoding......put a big surge protecteor in next time....
