Question about Bose LifeStyle 5 Series-III CD Shelf System
Hi, and thanks for your help...
I brought my Bose lifestyle 5 system with me to Germany and used a Transformer 230 to 110 Volt to operate the system, it does not power up.
I used a Powerpack from a European Lifestyle 5 from 1996 system, 230 input, 12 volt output.......again nothing.......
Do you have an idea what else I could do ?
The system only says 12 v-av output
Could you help me somehow ?
Thanks so much
Open or leaking components will look OK but, may not function as designed. Rather than create more problems, please consider whether the unit is worth repairing by a pro/tech, if so, do so.

Alan, The resistor is on the underside of the CD 5 main pcb near the jack socket it is a small chip resistor, but this can be replaced with a small 1/4 watt or smaller resistor. If you provide me with your e mail address I will send you a copy of the PCB layout drawing, the image size is to large to attach

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.

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.

There should be an AUDIO OUT left and right rca input/output plugs on the back of te TV; according to this, (http://www.bose.co.uk/GB/images/Lifestyle%205%20Series%20II%20Music%20System_tcm6-4083.pdf) the inputs for the audio are right next to the FM antenna port/plug so, if you have one of these; (http://www.inmax.ca/images/rca-cable.gif) just plug them in to the AUDIO OUT on your TV, and into the INPUT on your Bose system.
