We had this problem. I called Bose, and they reported that the 801 error is a hard drive problem. The unit started squealing while I was on the phone to support, and the guy heard it. Said the hard drive was failing.

$200 to ship the unit to Bose to replace the drive. Wish they had a secret warantee for what seems like a common problem.

Bypass or Reset Bose LifeStyle 48 System V-Chip Password Lock

Would you like to bypass, defeat or reset your Bose LifeStyle 48 System Parental V-Chip parental lock? Have you forgotten your V-Chip passcode or password?

If you forget your V-Chip passcode, you can view the locked signal without entering your password.

When your passcode is requested, enter the temporary code 2673. This process temporarily unlocks your system, and you can reset or change the password.

I hope that helps.

Bose lifestyle fault code 802 hi there- i have a bose lifestyle 48 and on display it reads format unsupported when i try to listen to cd's gut not on dvd's - in addition i am unable to store music into the...


Unfortunately, an 802 error is bad. That means hard drive (HDD) failure. This can happen to any hard disc drive, and there's no way to predict it and no way to fix it from home.
If you even try to troubleshoot it (reset etc), you could loose more data (music you've already stored to the system). If you try to access 'stored' music- the error will continue. Also, every time you turn the system off, it checks your HDD, and will probably cause the 802 or 801 errors to display again.
The "Format Unsupported" message may be related, but usually temporary. The 802 (and also 801) errors mean irreversible HDD damage so it doesn't matter.
Call Bose tech support immediately.. They can repair it for $165 and give a new 1 year warranty. And if it's already under warranty they will repair for free. In either case they will replace your HDD with a new one, and transfer any salvaged music files from your existing drive to the new drive.

Bose Lifestyle sound system shows "Failed 801"


your hard drive is about to fail or has failed.
If you can still play music from stored area and If you want to keep your songs thats stored on system, turn off at power point and take to bose auth repairer, they should be able to transfer songs across to new hard drive.
I have same problem, this is a common problem with bose.... not good for how much they are. Hard drive is left of cd tray, on its side.
hope this helps :)

Call Bose. It needs a new hard drive. There's a charge if it's out of warrantee, but it is reasonable. Seems like this is a common problem!
