Question about Bose Lifestyle 48 System

1 Answer

Hello,I have a Bose Lifestyle

Hello, I have a Bose Lifestyle system and Sony KDL 42" LCD. I have a S-Video cable attached from the "out" on the Bose to the S-Video on the Sony along with the yellow cable. I have also tried going from S-Video on the Bose to component "in" on the Sony. Either way I get a black and white scrambled screen on the Sony when I play a DVD on the Bose. Can you solve this issue?

If you use both s-video and composite (yellow) video at the same time on the bose system, it thinks you want to use the component adapter (which is included with the system). Just use one or the other. But if this is still in black and white (it may because the system still thinks you're using the adapter) just press "system" on the bose remote, and go to "video" and then "video connector" If video connector says "Component", try to change this to "composite + s". If this doesn't let you change it (it may not) then restart the system by unplugging the DC power cable for 30 seconds and re-connect it. I hope this helps.

I have installed the v30 bose lifestyle system but I can not get any video output on my Samsung led tv. I have tried the hdmi cable and the component cable. It both doesn't work.please help me with this


I recommend you stick with component cabling.

Having no picture at all generally suggests the V30 is trying a video mode your TV does not support:

  1. video type (PAL or NTSC)
  2. Progressive scan
  3. an HD resolution beyond your TV's range.
I hope that helps.

When playing a dvd the color is in b&w only


I have had exactly this problem when changing TVs. Initially I had the sVideo out cable from the Bose with a scart plug on TV end - that worked fine on old TV. On new TV, first Samsung, second SOny, got Black and white video picture. To get it to work I used a component video cable - this is a short svideo cable with a an audio cable at the Bose end. It splits into a 3way R G B cable within 2- 3 inches at Bose end. I then plugged rgb extension cables into this and TV and worked perfectly.
I found the answer to this by errr...... reading the BOse doucumentation I reveived when I bought the Lifestyle system 5 years ago.
Good luck

Picture is black and white with a dvd movie


If you're using the 3 component cables for video, one is probably defective or not connected well.

BOSE 321 DVD movie movie picure is blue. Its connected to a Sony LCD digital Wide screen TV Bravia Model KDL 40V2500 and my cable box. Could it be a loose connection.


Sounds like you are using a component cable(red,green,blue) rather than an HDMI cable.

Component cables are fine to use but if one of the 3 cables is disconnected, loose or bad, you may see blue video.

Check for loose connections or bad cables and make sure the proper color is plugged into its matching color.

Can't get sound on tv but dvd and radio work.


Sounds like an install problem. All of your inputs (audio and video) should run through the BOSE and then only the video out needs to run to the TV. In this way the BOSE is the sound source for everything

Bose Lifestyle 48 System play's dvd in black & white only also connect to vs-2 video enhacer hello, my bose lifestyle 48 only plays DVD's in black and white. I can't find a setting or a reason why it...


Your s-video cable at the back of your media center is loose. This will cause black and white internal video and is known to fall out or just become loose from minor movement. (it's the nature of s-video cables) This should solve your problem. This is the s-video cable that connects to the VS2 and media center.
If this doesn't solve the problem (I'd be surprised), just reset it by unplugging the DC power cable at the side of the VS-2 for about 30+ seconds and plug it back in..
