Question about Bose Lifestyle 12 System
Hello, my Bose Lifestyle 12 music center display is inop. The unit works fine, except I have no display. Any ideas?
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.

Replace either c16 or C19. It is different for whichever unit you have. It is a small 33uF 25 volt capacitor (will tell you which it is c19 or c16) Replace it with a 33Uf 63volt not a 25 volt or it will just eventually go out again

Sounds too bad. But I just had the same problem with mine. I have a really good service provider for BOSE nearby though, and they fixed it at an instant. It was pretty cheap too! The condensator on the left was the fault had to be changed. It´s located down in the left corner from the front when you open it. Get the number on it, buy a new one, and change it!

BPNoel, Have had similar problem with mine, sent it in to get it repaired however, the problems has resurfaced. Contacted Bose and they no longer service this unit. They are however offering and upgrade by trading in your old system for a new one and discounting the price of the new one based on your trade in. Sorry.
