Older Bose Lifestyle systems are prone to electrolytic capacitor failures. Replace all electrolytic capacitors on the main control board with identical uF value, equal or greater voltage rating, equal or greater temp rating. There are about a dozen on the board with at 2-3 different values. Disassembly and reassembly is straight forward. Those with capable skills in mechanical and electrical areas should find the project will take about 1-2 hours. I recommend grounding the board when working on it. Find a spot on the board where the ground is marked, and attach a jumper to a ground point. Take caution during the disassembly -- take photos, lots of plastic parts, etc. The eCaps are polarized, so be sure to check polarity as you unsolder, and install new eCaps with same polarity (+ & - ) as the old.

Once caps are replaced the voltage levels to correctly operate the display will be back to factory settings, and the display should show brightly. Good Luck!

Display screen led light wont come on


If the display has been gradually fading and is now unreadable, the fault is almost certainly loss of emission of the fluorescent display and it will need a replacement display module fitted (at a Bose Service Centre)
Is there any sign of characters showing in a darkened room?

If it has suddenly gone off, with all other radio features are working as normal, but prior to this the display was bright and clear, and the set has not been subjected to a fall or a sudden sharp impact of some kind, (which can crack the display module and cause it to fail) then the most likely possibilities are; a failed filament supply to the display module, a failed high tension supply rail to the display module, or loss of data feed to the display. It is also possible there may be a fault in the day/night brightness switching circuitry that has shut the display down completely. It is not possible to be more specific without seeing the unit, or even knowing which model it is I'm afraid.

Bose lifestyle fault code 802


Here's what the Bose support website suggests.  Good Luck!
Messages displayed during a Music Information Update
Messages may appear on your media center display during a Music Information Update. If you see a message with instructions to call Bose, and a three-digit code such as "Error Code 802" or "Failed 172" while performing a Music Information Update, it does not necessarily mean there's something wrong with the system. Performing a media center reset and installing the update again may address the issue.

To reset your media center, follow these steps:
  1. Turn the media center off. Wait two minutes

  2. Unplug the power cord from the media center. Wait 30 seconds

  3. Reconnect the power cord

  4. Wait until "Bose Lifestyle" disappears from the screen

Note: After a reset, you will need to wait several minutes before playing stored music (3 to 20 minutes, depending on how many CDs have been stored). All other sources will be available immediately after the system powers up.

If you have any additional questions about these messages, please contactBose® Technical Support or call 1-800-278-1281.
