Bose Lifestyle 48 not responding to remote or manual functions
Yesterday my LS48 worked fine. Today, it will only display "Lifestyle Bose" on the system box and remote will not work the system. I tried to manually touch on/off button, eject, etc and nothing will happen.
I unpluged to the system to see if it perhaps would reboot and still nothing happens.
Any advise on what can be wrong? The system is less than a year old.
Re: Bose Lifestyle 48 not responding to remote or manual...
I hd this same problem a couple of months ago. Disconttect all peripherals (any exterior amps, roommates) plug the power connector and wait for two minutes, while waiting connect the main system. try turning the LS 48 on. If this clears thing turn off the LS 48 and connect the peripheral one at a time testing with each new connection. Happy hunting.

Maybe, just Maybe you could try turning the power off for the sub woofer, the zone next and then the Bose itself. Power up the woofer and zone before the Bose and it may pick it up, works when the Apple TV drops out
Call Bose tech support. They fix or replace these under warranty. I have a lifestyle 12, original model, after two repairs in. Ore than 10 years, I was allowed to upgrade to top of the line for the price difference.
if im hearing you correctly it sounds like you need a hardrive for the system as a back up easy to install and backs up all info for system
i hope im hearing this right to make sure i give you right help
Just got off phone with Bose support with this very problem during install of a VS-2 software updtae to an older LS48 system. (Bose support personnel were very helpful on phone - and walked me through procedure to solve). I presume you unplugged and replugged power supply with no resolution. In that case, unplug power supply, wait 30 seconds and while holding down the "open/close button" and the "store" button (on media center) plug the power supply back in. Continue holding until the "Bose Lifestyle" message disappears. I presume this puts the system into a diagnostic mode, as the next steps in my case were to press and hold the "erase" button while scrolling through a menu of options using the "volume up" button. I believe it was the third "volume up" press that brought me to "FLASH" on the system screen. At that point I was told to release the "erase" button and press the enter button. The system rebooted and my VS-2 install went smoothly after that.
I'd recomend calling Bose support (800-905-2138) since your lockup occured during a CD load vs a software update (just to be on the safe side) - I was talking to a live tech support person in less than 15 seconds... a pleasant surprise.
sorry mate, looks like cd 5 is damaged goods...... wheter you damaged it or not, can't say....
however, make sure. when you try to play cd, that the cd button, nearest display was pressed as just putting in a cd isn't automatically taking control of the cd function like in other cd players. ( that is to say you have to diliberately select CD mode to play cd's)
if you fancy a load of electronic messing and visits to radio shack i am sure you can repair it if broken,
or a second hand cd unit could be obtained elsewhere on line.
hate to stae the obvious and painfull answer, but that nees to go back to the shop where if the sales guy cant get it sorted for you it could be a firmware crash and tus a warranty replacement, i know the manual is not that good in this specif area. and a non warranty reset may cost money, if warranty does not cover this specific area of adventure as it is possible they could blame the content of the media being corrupted in some way, could be ahrd one.
however you could try remoing the disk and resetting the system according to manual frist.
