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.

Lifestyle 12, NO AUDIO and a DEAD DISPLAY


You are correct. The display unit is separate from the audio issue. I have tired to work on a few of these units over the years.

Bose is so proprietary in thier electronics and repair that the average electronics technician cannot service them.

Your only luck it to send the units in for service. If you are dead set on wanting the bose units then, $250 may be worth the repair charges to you.

If I was you, I would retire the Bose equipment and go to my local electronics store to purchase a different brand unit.

Everything works with my bose lifestyle model 5 music center but the display wont light up. Do I have a bulb out or something ? How can I fix this, its driving me nuts! Thanks for any help you can give....


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.

Dead CD player - everything else is o.k.


Hi, Your unit may already had a mod incorporated, however, I am unable to attach an extract from a Bose Service Bulletin which solves this type of problem, also depending upon which board version you have it can also be down to a potentiometer adjustment. Please send me you e mail address and I will forward you the details.

Bose Lifestyle 5 ~ dead display fix


Hi the fix for a dead display is a faulty capacitor. Depending upon which board version you have, you need to replace the 33 uF / 63 volt capaitor. On some units this is C19 on the display board, on other units this capacitor is mounted on the main board and re-numbered, there is only one 33 uF on the unit so you should be able to find it.
