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.

Sounds like you have a problem in the circuits, which of course would take an experience technician to find and repair. But a 1994 electronic item has pretty much reached the end of its expected life cycle (sadly, compared to older equipment which is still working great). Basically, it sounds like the power amp circuit is shutting down a few seconds after startup. Might check to make sure no speakers or cables have shorts, which could activate a protection shutdown circuit. If any of the cubes don't hiss when you turn it on, that would be the first place to look for a problem.
