Bose Lifestyle 25 - no display indicator lights

Our Bose Lifestyle 25 system has been working fine. Just got a new Comcast cable box (the old one wasn't bad, just old and big - newer, smaller upgrade available). Changed out the cable box and everything (cable, TV, DVD/VCR) is working fine, but suddenly there are no indicator lights on the Bose unit. I am skeptical the lights coincidentally burned out. This was a simple changeout of the cable box - no rerouting of cables, no changes to the equipment, etc. The Bose system itself is working fine as usual. Any help you can provide is much appreciated!

    Similar problem, I noted the display was less bright. Then the other day off altogether. Unit functions fine but no display is visible.

No reset button. Simply unplug the power cord in the rear, wait 20 seconds and power back up.

SOURCE: Bose Lifestyle V20 Error 180

OK talked with Bose just a minute ago and they were able to correct the issue.

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.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Want to connect non-bose speakers to a bose lifestyle system

this is possible, however not a very good idea.
Bose speakers are designed a little different than other brand speakers, the Equalizer built into the bose system will probably not sound amazing when you hook up your other speakers. Are you looking for more bass? cleaner highs?

if you want more bass, you could try doubling up your subs, if you want cleaner highs you could buy Bose Jewel Cube Speakers (purchased from a Bose Built-Invisible Dealer

I have a Bose lifestyle 25 from 1997 and I need a receiver power cord and a complete harness between the subwoofer and tha acustimass boxes. Do you know where I can find it ? Thank's


There's nothing special about the original power cord, so I'd go to Radio Shack or any electrical supply store and get it for $8.

Or you may have an unused one from other device lying around the house.

eBay has several of the unique connections you want.

Search "Bose lifestyle 25 cable".

Had the same problem. The electrolytic capacitors on the power board were not well - I tested a few of them and ESR values were all high. One of my 100uF caps was open circuit and not charging. I replaced all caps on the power board and display is fine again. Hope this helps.

I have also have this problem with a lifestyle 28 system. Bose sent me a new cable then a software update. The problem remained, after contacting Bose and unplugging cables and powering down the system this solved the problem. However 2 days after and the problem has re-appeared. Back to square one. I should add that this is the second unit I have had the retailer exchanged the last one because of the same problem.

Bose lifestyle 12 music center display inop


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.
