SOURCE: Mom was hitting buttons and now DVD plays Blue and White!

I think your mom changed the DVD output setting. Using the remote, go to the Setup Menu, then select DVD Setup. Scroll down to the Alt Video Out option. It will either be set to "Component", S-Video, or "Off". It needs to be set to the type output you are using to go from your Go Video deck to your TV. If you are using an S-Video cable, then set it to "S-Video", if using Component cables (Red, Blue, and Green cables), then set to "Component". Otherwise it should be set to "Off".

Hope this helps.

Most probably the TV system is not compatible.
This VCR/DVD uses NTSC formate. Is the DVD in PAL formate. Also the Region code can be different. This DVD palys DVD-Disks with regional code 1 or All.

My bose lifestyle 48 say resolutio not supported when i try to play a dvd but i have sound without a picture. how can this be fixed

Is it a copied DVD or DVD-R / RW? If if says resolution not supported then it means that the DVD has a video format that cannot be played on the Bose even though the sound track is fine. The DVD may work fine on a PC as these can usually play more file types, but it could be a number of things causing it not to work and unfortunatetly there is nothing you can do.

I have a Bose Lifestyle 35 Series II and want to know whether it's compatible with a DVD+RW. I'll burn it in a Toshiba recorder, finalize it and then play it on the Bose. Will it play?

Hi This what Bose say about formats

"The Lifestyle® 35 system plays DVD-video in interlaced format, as well as music on CD, CD-R (recordable) and CD-RW (re-writable). The system also plays MP3 files on CD and AM/FM radio. "

So by the sound of this i suspec that you may struggle with DVD/RW. but my best advice is try it.

Bose lifestyles v28 plays dvds in black and white

Check your video output settings in the menu. If you are using a composite video output and do not have the system sut up for it, you will get a B&W picture. Check your menu settings.

Bose av28 access menu using control buttons

when this happened to me,,,I found out it meant that the video decoding ASIC was out....I could not get any DVD's to play to the TV, and finally, the "settings" menu would not go on the television screen....this means you need to have the mainboard replaced, and after twice doing this,,,,the Tech on the phone told me that the Video Decoding ASIC is very susceptible to power spikes,,,so I put a big APC filter in front of it....

Dvd player wont play movies recorded by my friends. what is the problem?

Not all DVD players can play DVDR or DVDRW discs (writable DVDs) these players are however very inexpensive. Usually the ones that say they will play windows media file will work, but not always. See if you can find one that says it will play DVDR or DVDRW discs.
