I had the same problem as this, but have lost my remote, so the system is know useles. Any way back to the point if you wiggle the cable around that goes in the speaker zone port then turn it off and back on then it should work :-D.

Bose lifestyle plays for 5min shuts down


Do the easy troubleshooting first! Get a source of clean, dry compressed air and blow out the inside works. Next, get some contact spray and spray into the volume control potentiometer and work it down and up.

Volume is blocked ("hotel only"). How can I


I found this in another Fixya entry... "-Press Enter and On/Off on the media center , on standby mode -now hold the enter button pressed and start pressing the On/Off button. You should see a setting display on the player. The setting on display should change from video....till...Hotel Control -ON - on that position, press the Volume 'minus' button on the media center. It should change to Hotel Control - Off." My next suggestion would have been to call Bose and ask them why things like this aren't documented anywhere. 1-800-999-2673 Sales support: Mon. - Sun., 7 AM - 2 AM ET Technical support: Mon. - Fri., 8:30 AM - 9 PM ET Sat., 9 AM - 6 PM

REALLY - call them and complain that this is NOT documented online.

The volume control on my Bose 38 lifestyle system will not adjust the system, with either the remote or the volume controls on on the console.


On a Bose 38, the volume will self adjust at start, and then you will be able to change volume using either radio remote, or buttons on main unit (the one with DVD).

If the unit is not responding , then there is a fault.

A fault where the Bose 38 is working (eg. you can swap from DVD to AUX on bose), but you cannot control volume (you do not see the values on main unit display) is rather unusual.

Ensure that you have correctly connected TV, receiver, or any other external device to the bose in Input, not in output from Bose.
If you have an HDTV, use the optical input on Bose, that is the only digital audio in on a Bose 38.

Check if the problem depends on connections, if it does not, let me know.

Lifestyle 48 Acoustic module doesn't work


Call Bose tech support. They fix or replace these under warranty. I have a lifestyle 12, original model, after two repairs in. Ore than 10 years, I was allowed to upgrade to top of the line for the price difference.

Lifestyle 48 locked up


Just got off phone with Bose support with this very problem during install of a VS-2 software updtae to an older LS48 system. (Bose support personnel were very helpful on phone - and walked me through procedure to solve). I presume you unplugged and replugged power supply with no resolution. In that case, unplug power supply, wait 30 seconds and while holding down the "open/close button" and the "store" button (on media center) plug the power supply back in. Continue holding until the "Bose Lifestyle" message disappears. I presume this puts the system into a diagnostic mode, as the next steps in my case were to press and hold the "erase" button while scrolling through a menu of options using the "volume up" button. I believe it was the third "volume up" press that brought me to "FLASH" on the system screen. At that point I was told to release the "erase" button and press the enter button. The system rebooted and my VS-2 install went smoothly after that.
I'd recomend calling Bose support (800-905-2138) since your lockup occured during a CD load vs a software update (just to be on the safe side) - I was talking to a live tech support person in less than 15 seconds... a pleasant surprise.
