Question about Bose Lifestyle 48 System

DVD frozen While a DVD was playing, I pressed the DVD Menu button to go back to the main menu. However, instead, the DVD froze in position. I tried to stop the DVD, rewind, play, etc. but nothing worked. I even tried to eject it but it wouldn't work. Then I turned the system off, waited, then turned it back on, and the DVD display still was stuck at the same point, and still nothing works. After turning it off and on, however, there was also no display of the frozen moment in the DVD either.

Re: DVD frozen

Wow, it was so long ago when this happened.  I ended up calling BOSE and they told me what to do.  It's been so long I don't quite remember, but I think it might have been what suttonax suggested, which was to unplug the whole thing.  Or I think it might have been something much simpler.  I don't know.  Call BOSE!

It can't play dvd from other zone, how can I set up my equipment to play any dvd?

Now this is for the Sony DAV-450. If that is not your unit may I get the right make and model #.

1) Go into the services menu by
A) - Turn your C450 on with no disc inside.

B) - (ON THE EQUIPMENT NOT ON REMOTE) Press and hold both the Display and Stop keys while turning the volume control to the right. When your TV screen fickle, release the buttons. You should be seeing the Service Menu now.

This should be fairly easy. I got to this step without any troubles.

2) Instead of buying their remote control I used my PALM with OmniRemote ( and Sony_DVD_hack.pdb (

3) I send numbers 1 to 5 with the PALM as suggested and tried it a number of ways such as sending 1,1 2,2 3,3 etc.
I did NOT see any "data reset" or anything else displayed on the screen as reported in the forums elsewhere. That's why I kept on trying for about an hour with various codes and just as I was about to give up, lo and behold, I tried playing a region 1 DVD and it WORKED. The morale of the story is that keep a bunch of DVDs (with various codes) handy and try it out.

While pressing the buttons 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 I did not notice anything unusual except button 2 would put the display into some kind of toggle mode but probably it is irrelevent and safe to ignore.

Enjoy! If this works please rate 4 thumbs for the free answer.

Rear speakers do not work , also in set up menu they are grayed out.

hi there

when playing radio, the rear speakers do work because you have configured that. in your dvd player however, you may not have configured it yet.

Correctly insert the jacks at the back of the dvd player and at the same time, check the menu of your dvd player and check the audio settings. Under the audio settings of your dvd player menu, select the 5.1 or 6.1 audio profile.

hope this helps.

Lg lht854 dvd playback goes blank constantly while watching dvds

All you need to do is set the unit to play back DVDs at 480P instead of auto. That's what I did and the problem has gone away.

Frozen hard drive

If you have a Thomson DT16300, here's a handy fix that address freeze ups, lack of reception and problems on your Hard Disk:

goto MENU screen
goto SETUP screen
goto HELP screen
At HELP screen, Enter 1397 - this accesses the engineer panel - you can reformat the HDD in this menu - you will lose all recorded programmes and planned recordings but it clears locked or corrupted files

OR - at the HELP screen, press the GREEN button

On the lower half of the screen youwill see 3 options:

Blue - Reformat HDD - clears all the memory/HDD - useful if you have a corrupted file - you will lose all recorded programmes though

Red - reset the whole box to factory settings - good if you have a locked box or reception problems or cannto scan for new channels. It goes back to when you bought the box, so you will have to input favourites and planned recordings again

Yellow - Software revert - allows you to go back to the previous software driver - you may lose new functions, but you can always restore it back again using the same feature

"No Disc"

Here are a couple solutions:

How To Recalibrate DVD Player


For those that are having the skiping up and unreadable disk problems try the following calabration. I did it last night and now my DVD's are much clearer and I'm hoping the skiping problem is gone.

For those that have the lip sync problem Sony should cover this for no charge, you just need to push them a little. This is a firmware update, have a look at the other posts at this web site to find the firmware revision that you need.

Make sure that the DVD player is turned OFF and in the stand-by mode with the little red LED glowing above the on/off button.
To enter the service mode/test mode, press Title, Clear, and Power on the remote.
This will produce the following menu:
Test Mode Menu
0. Syscon Diagnosis
1. Drive Auto Adjustment
2. Drive Manual Operation
3. Mecha Aging
4. Emergency History
5. Version Information
6. Video Level Adjustment

Exit: POWER Key
What each item does;
Syscon Diagnosis = Leave this for service technicians.
Drive Auto Adjustment = Automatically calibrates DVDs and CDs.
Drive Manual Operation = Manually calibrates DVDs and CDs with prompts for permission to skip, execute and/or proceed after each adjustment is made or skipped. Offers a fascinating look at all of the many adjustments made, but this method is time consuming.
Mecha Aging = Allows auto repeat mode for testing purposes.
Emergency History = Shows the number of hours on your machine.
Version Information = Shows firmware version.
Video Level Adjustment = Test pattern.
Press #1 (Drive Auto Adjustment) on the remote and the following menu will appear:
Drive Auto Adjustment
0. All
2. CD

Press #1 (DVD-SL) on the remote and insert a Single Layer DVD when the drawer opens.
Even though you may be interested in calibrating only a dual-layer DVD, do not skip the single-layer calibration procedure. For some reason, the player prefers to first calibrate a single-layer DVD before proceeding to a dual-layer disc. Error messages may result if the single-layer calibration procedure is not performed first.
Press the enter key and the machine will begin to calibrate all of the playback features. When calibration is completed, follow the onscreen instructions to return to the above menu.
When the Drive Auto Adjustment menu returns, press #3 (DVD-DL) on the remote and insert a Dual Layer DVD when the drawer opens. Follow the instructions as noted above.
When calibration is completed, follow the onscreen instructions to exit from the Test Mode Menu. Now you can turn the player back on and try your dual layer discs to see if the layer change has improved.
If you have any concerns about trying this service mode calibration, leave it for an authorized service facility
Other solutions:

1. To reach this test menu on a DAV-S300, press and hold the "STOP" and "Muting" button on your DVD Player (not remote) and turn the volume nob clockwise about 180 degrees. You will see a flicker. A blue test screen will appear, allowing you to calibrate your DVD. Please note that if you have no technical experience, messing around in this menu can cause serious damage to your DVD. The calibration option will be under: option 1, Disc Drive Auto Adjustment (or words to that effect). Be sure to calibrate a single-layer disc first, then dual layer -- you need to calibrate both types. Good luck.

In order for the STOP + MUTE + VOLUME sequence to work, your player must be ON, but have no disc present. You need to empty the tray, power off the S300 and power it back on. Wait until the INSERT DISC/NO DISC prompt appears. Then try the SMV sequence. And you must use the buttons on the unit, NOT on the remote, to enter the service menu. Once in the menu, use your remote to select the auto calibration menu and go from there.

2. This will fix the C 13:00 problem on any Sony DVD player.
With the machine turned off on standby, press the following 3 buttons
on the handset, in order: TITLE CLEAR POWER. The Diagnostic Start menu will come up on the TV. Select the appropriate button number for "auto adjust". The
machine basically does it all. It asks you to select either a single
layer or double layer disc (whatever your offending disc is.) Ejects
the tray, asks you to put your disc in and then calibrates it. (It's
over in about half a second... painless) Just follow the prompts on the screen
