Question about Bose LifeStyle 5 Series-III CD Shelf System

Open Question

Bose Lifestyle 5 music-center 1994

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

    Same thing here. It worked when I was in the states, now I tried it with a transformer no-go. I was thinking about buying a 230V tranformer but it looks like I may be out of luck.

    Have you figured it out?

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
Regards
Dave

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.

SOURCE: Our Bose lifestyle 5 has no sound does the Bose CD

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.

SOURCE: ive got bose lifestyle model 5 system and have

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.

Not good surround sound Is the bose lifestyle 5 support 5.1 surround sound?


The Bose Lifestyle 5 is not a 5.1 surround sound system. It is a 2.1 sound system, meaning it is stereo with a subwoofer/bass unit. Having two speakers that can be angled in different directions, the Bose Lifestyle 5 employs Bose direct/reflecting technology,providing greater audio presence. Still, it is definitely not a surround sound system.

Bose lifestyle 5


Hi,

I cannot exactly solve this issue but I can make a comment based on investigation. Lots of people have this issue but there are very few comments to help solve the issue unfortunately.

I have the same issue and have been able eliminate various things because I have a second complete Bose Lifestyle 5 system.

It is clear the issue does not lie in the Sub and is related to the Music centre unit. I can use a second identical music centre to power my sub just fine and my broken Music centre cannot drive my second sub.

Now the issue is knowing where to track down R428 in the music centre which is the suggested fix to this issue. I have opened my unit and there are resistors various Resistors in the 400 range but no R428.

If anyone can help with the location of R428 in the Music Centre I would be very grateful.

Thanks,
Jeff
