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.

My display has not been working for years. Replaced c17 cap wich was 33uF 63 volts on lower pcb board( only one on system) . Old cap was good so this was not the problem. Replaced c16 wich was 100uF 25 volts with a 100uF 63volts. Display works, old cap read low. Both c17, and c16 are located on the lower left hand corner of the larger pcb looking from the front of the unit. Hope this helps.

1-connect the blu-ray to your tv via hdmi cable and this will run picture.
2-connect the blu-ray via digital optical cable to the optical input on the bose system. then using your bose menu, (system menu)set your auxillary sound output to digital optical.
when watching dvd thru bluray player select aux on the bose and you're away.

Below is solution from an earlier post, I'm trying it out now as I have the same issue, system bought in Jan 09. I have received and installed the latest update from Bose recently, now this. Will call Bose tomorrow to fix if they can't they will be getting it back.
We disabled the power cord from the back of the media console (where the HDMI cables connect) and left it off for a minute or two.
Powered the media console back on and it is working as expected.
Was told by the Bose tech that the common reason for this issue is due to the use of the HDMI cables that have a propritary security protocol that is used between the media console and the component it is attached to (ie TV, Cable/Sat, BluRay ...ect).
I asked if there was a BIOS upgrade if it was indeed a "handshaking" issue and was told there was not one (yet).
If one becomes available, it will be shipped via mail on a CD\DVD that can be used in a CD\DVD player that is connected to the media console using the HDMI cable.

There is a service available at www.AnyoneCanFixIt.com where you can send it to fix the display. Quick service and way cheaper than Bose.
