If the remote does not work as you expect
If your system does not respond when you press a button on the remote, it could be time to
change batteries. For information on the type of batteries to use and how to change them,
refer to "Replacing the remote control batteries" on page 51
In some buildings, you may experience "dead spots" where the remote control will not
operate effectively. If this happens, move the remote a foot or two and try again. Also make
sure the cord that connects the power supply to the media center (and contains the remote
antenna) is stretched to its full length and is separated from other power cords. If these
efforts do not work, move the media center a few feet to a location where it provides a better
response.
If the batteries are fine and the suggestions concerning "dead spots," above do not work,
you may need an antenna extender. To contact Bose

customer service to request one, refer
to the address list included with the system.

SOURCE: Lifestyle 48 locked up

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.

SOURCE: Connecting ipod to Bose lifestyle 48

I have a Lifestyle 48 and called Bose today. It is possible all you need is a cord that is a 35mm headphone jack on one side and RCA jacks on the other. You plug it into the AUX jack in the back of your system and the headphone jack in the Ipod headphone spot. I got the cord at Best Buy for ten bucks. It works GREAT!

Bose lifestyle 38 remote wont work i'm trying to reset the house code but "all off" followed by "enter" or follwed by"stored " is not working


I have a Bose Lifestyle 38 and the remote control stopped working effectively. I've tried several sets of fresh batteries, made sure that the electrical cord is not coiled up, and have checked the copper coil antenna within the remote to make sure it is connected. The remote does not make any noise or rattle when shaken. It will only work when held within a foot or two of the receiver, and even then often takes several button pushes to get a response. I've verified that the house code on the remote and the receiver are the same. Any ideas?

The volume control on my Bose 38 lifestyle system will not adjust the system, with either the remote or the volume controls on on the console.


On a Bose 38, the volume will self adjust at start, and then you will be able to change volume using either radio remote, or buttons on main unit (the one with DVD).

If the unit is not responding , then there is a fault.

A fault where the Bose 38 is working (eg. you can swap from DVD to AUX on bose), but you cannot control volume (you do not see the values on main unit display) is rather unusual.

Ensure that you have correctly connected TV, receiver, or any other external device to the bose in Input, not in output from Bose.
If you have an HDTV, use the optical input on Bose, that is the only digital audio in on a Bose 38.

Check if the problem depends on connections, if it does not, let me know.

Bose link AL8 connection problems


I had a similar problem, though intermittent, using my 48 with the AL8 and room-mate speakers. I kept getting a "no signal received from media centre" message on the remote in the second room.

Assuming that the batteries are ok and you don't have a hardware problem, the problem might be that the 48 is not picking up the signal from your remote control in your second room. The signal from your remote control is a radio signal that goes directly to the 48 - it doesn't communicate via the AL8 receiver. I think the orange light will only turn green once a signal is being transmitted from the transmitter unit plugged into your 48 media centre, and this won't start transmitting until the media centre gets a signal from the remote telling it to switch on.

The aerial for all the remote controls is contained in the power cable that links the 48 lifestyle unit to your VS-2 unit. Make sure that this is uncoiled and oriented vertically, as far away from other cables as possible.

If this doesn't work, you can get an antenna extender that plugs into the RC socket on the back of the lifestyle system. Again, orient this vertically. You can get these from Bose.

Is there anything in the wall that might be blocking the radio signal? Lots of metalwork for example?

If orienting the power cable from the VS-2 doesn't do the trick, I suggest that you go to a local Bose shop. (An actual Bose shop, not just an electrical or hifi store stocking Bose products). I explained my problem and the tech guy gave me an extender gratis (its basically just an FM aerial wire by the look of it). I installed it this morning and, so far, its seems to be working ok. As my unit is fairly new, he also offered to have the kit back in the shop to check it all out and, if that didn't work gave me Bose technical support number. He even offered, if all else failed, to send a guy out to my home to get it working - and I didn't even buy it from there!

Hope this helps.

Remote


The IR "bug" provided with the Bose 18/28/38/48 models is an IR emitter which sends out IR control codes to another component. The system is designed to have the Bose remote control be used to control the TV and the dish box. The Bose media center has a strong IR blaster in the front which will flood your room with the IR codes to control your TV or Dish box. The TV sensing device must be placed at a location on the TV where specific voltages can be detected. The location will vary depending on display type you have - plasma, LCD, tube or rear projection.
