Bose Lifestyle 35 Disc Player

I cannot get the disc player to work and the disc tray will not open when the eject button is pressed. The system makes a noise like it is trying to operate but nothing happens. All other functions working OK. Will a new disc player fix the problem or is it more complex?

The motor that spins the disk has gone bad and locks up as it gets hot. It will stay locked up if you continue to use the drive. I cleaned the drive motor with a shot of CRC Lectra-Motive electric parts cleaner and that fixes it for a while but after a few DVDs it will lock up again. Long story short you will need to replace the drive unit.

WILL NOT EJECT DISC


What is the model number of your DVD player? You may try power resetting the unit and check if it helps. To power reset, turn OFF the DVD player and unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet for 30 seconds. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet and turn the player ON. Attempt to open the disc tray.

Depending on the model number of your DVD player, simultaneously press the POWER + STOP + EJECT buttons. If the disc tray still does not open, simultaneously press the DISC1 + STOP + EJECT buttons.
NOTE: This step may not apply to all models as DISC1 is not available on all DVD players.

If this does not work and if the DVD player has DISPLAY and PREV buttons, press and hold the DISPLAY+PREV buttons for two seconds to unlock the drawer.

I can not eject a disc from the disc player. I've heard this is a common problem. Thanks. Curt Pasawicz


Hi curt730,

You're right, this is a known issue for years with Bose Lifestyle. You may try these steps to resolve the issue:

Note: You will need a flashlight and a small screwdriver.

1. First, disconnect the base unit from the system.

2. Turn the base unit upside down and find the access hole embossed with "Manual magazine release" on the CD player side.

3. Then, using the flashlight, look inside the base unit at those access holes and find the fine spring and locate where it fastens to the sheet metal of the CD player.

4. The moment you find the spring you should see that it connects to the CD player chassis at the forward end and a piece of sheet metal that is on top (actually underneath when the base unit is right-wide up) of the CD player chassis at the rear end. This is the manual release mechanism.

5. Finally using the small screwdriver, push the release mechanism rearward to release the CD magazine from the player. The magazine should pop out.

If the magazine is not released, then the CD that is still in the player has not been slid back fully into the magazine. In this case you'll need to plug the base unit back into power and hope that the CD is retracted, allowing you to push the release mechanism rearward. If not then you'll have to open the base unit to access the CD player.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

How do i change the unsupported format to play a dvd


DVD players have 5 regions. And on the back of every DVD you buy the region code is marked in side a circle ( like a globe ).
Region 1 is North America
Region 2 is Europe . Middle East & South Africa
Region 3 is South East Asia,
Region 4 is South America, Mexico, Australia
Region 5 is India , USSR, Africa.
To change the region code of your Lifestyle 38 DVD player follow the steps given below.
Make sure you familiarize yourself with the buttons on the remote and not fumble while keying in the sequence given below.
Make sure there is no disc in the tray of the player and it is closed ( tray ).

First step - Press RIGHT arrow, UP arrow, SHUFFLE, STOP, MUTE

To change to a specific region code
Step two --- Open the disc tray
Step three --Press STOP
Step four --- Press SHUFFLE
Step five ---. Press # key for desired region from the list given above.
Step six ---- Press ENTER.
Turn off the DVD player wait for a 10 seconds and restart. It should work.
Enjoy your foreign DVD's. Cheers!!.

DVD drawer will not open - stuck dvd inside


My only suggestion is to press and hold the eject button for a period of time (15 - 30 seconds). This might unlock the drawer. If not, I would contact Bose Customer Service directly.

I have a lifestyle 18 bose system which only plays region 2 DVDs. How can I get it to play region 1 as well?


Hi, check below the media center/DVD player as to what region your system was fixed into (indicated by a number inside a globe). This is located underneath the unit just beside the serial number. FI the system indicates that your system indeed is set to region-2 then proceed as follows. IF it marks a different number region, then bring the unit to the Bose service center.

Steps in UNLOCKING REGION CODE of media center:

1. Load a DVD and wait for the display to show "REGION CODE ERROR, CONTACT BOSE"
2. Once this comes out, press eject button on your remote control but do not remove DVD disc
3. Press the following button commands in sequence (make sure they are in sequence and are pressed by looking into the media center display where a small green dot should blink indicating that each command is received).
4. First you need to initiate the system region change on the remote control:
a.while the tray is out and the DVD is still in the tray, press and release "RIGHT" arrow button
b. then press and release "UP" arrow button
c. after, press and release "SHUFFLE" button
d. then press and release "STOP" (black square symbol) button
e. lastly, press and release "MUTE" button and system should go on mute (indicated in the LCD display

After this, you now can change the region code by doing the following button press on your remote control:
1. While the DVD tray is out still and the DVD disc is in the tray, press and release "STOP" button (black square mark)
2. Press and release "SHUFFLE" button
3. Press and release number "0" button on numeric keypad
4. Lastly, press and release "ENTER" button on your remote control and the DVD tray should go back inside the DVD. The disc then should start loading and playing resumes.
5. Allow the DVD disc to run for a few minutes (if you want enjoy a full movie) to keep the region change resident before switching off again.

Now enjoy your Bose Lfiestyle DVD System REGION FREE!!!

Do note, this does not apply to Bose DVD system that are locked to region-1

Glad to be of service always!

DVD player will not open


Hi, I think the DVD disc was not positioned properly (since yo udid mention that the disc did not play) adn that it has jammed the tray. Please avoid furtherusing the unit as this may damage the eject gear mechanism. Only recommendation is to bring the unit for service and they can physically rmeove the jammed disc.

DVD is stuck in Bose lifestlye 48 media player


We had a power surge during a thunderstorm that dimmed our lights, and after that the CD opened as normal.

A friend suggested that I pull the power connector, press the open/close button and hold it down as I reconnected the power connector. The power surge beat me to that, so I don't know if it works. It was more than "Tech Support" could offer however.

Purchased a Bose Lifestyle 38 demonstration model and can't get it off demo mode now


Unplug the unit for 10 seconds. Plug it back in and repeatedly push the "eject button" until it displays "opening tray". Take out the disc and put in whatever you like.
