Question about Bose LifeStyle 5 Series-III CD Shelf System
This is a Lifestyle 12 version One. Release date of NOV 1994. The problems first started when the Display burned out. Eventually the Unit quit producing sound. I have tried unplugging to reset it. I have plugged in the media center with a different power supply and it did the same thing, absolutely nothing! I wish that I could determine if the problem resides in the media center or in the base module? Bose wants me to ship both components in to them so they can evaluate them. They have told me that they will fix my unit for a flat $250.00 fee, regardless of the issue. Bose tells me that if they fix it, they will also warranty it for a year after they fix it.
I am sure the display issue is separate than the audio issue?
Can anyone tell me what is wrong with this unit? Please? Anyone else have a TWO THOUSAND dollar stereo that doesn't work?
You are correct. The display unit is separate from the audio issue. I have tired to work on a few of these units over the years.
Bose is so proprietary in thier electronics and repair that the average electronics technician cannot service them.
Your only luck it to send the units in for service. If you are dead set on wanting the bose units then, $250 may be worth the repair charges to you.
If I was you, I would retire the Bose equipment and go to my local electronics store to purchase a different brand unit.
