Replaced the DVD? Did you replace the mechanism, or the entire media center? If you replaced the dvd mechanism, you might be out of luck getting firmware to support the rest of the hardware. If you mean that you replaced the media center, the firmware is available as part of a normal software update disc through Bose. To check sw and fw-> when the system is off, press and hold 'enter' on the media center and tap the 'store' button until you see "console sw" on the display. Same with fw.

If you replace with a similar unit, Toshiba M1502/M1612/M1702/M1802 or likewise you can flash it using a PC and floppy or CD boot to get the original bose formware back in there. Check out this forum for how to: http://homeavi.pro-forums.com/ good luck!

Bose dvd player powering on automatic


If you are referring to the Lifestyle system powering on, when you press the CD/DVD button on the remote control, that is the way the system is supposed to work. If this is not what you are referring to, please provide clear details on your issue. Thanks.

Dvd player quit on my lifestyle 28


send back to BOSE and get a new mainboard,,,the problem is probably NOT the DVD player itself, but the video decoding ASIC, which burns out on thes e mainboards if the "settings" from the remote won't show on the TV,,,then you are getting no video decoding......put a big surge protecteor in next time....

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.

Bose lifestyle 28 will not come on?


The Bose Lifestyle System has two power connection. One is the adaptor for the media center/DVD and the other one is the bass module/ subwoofer. Both has physical indicators showing that power is present. If your pwoer adaptor is ok, then the media center display should show "BOSE LIFESTYLE SYSTEMS" on startup. The bass module power module should be OK when you see a green blinking or steady linght underneath.

If only the media center/DVD has no display then there is something wrong with your pwer adaptor and should be sent for repair.

Hope I have helped you

Bose Lifestyle V20 Error 180


Below is solution from an earlier post, I'm trying it out now as I have the same issue, system bought in Jan 09. I have received and installed the latest update from Bose recently, now this. Will call Bose tomorrow to fix if they can't they will be getting it back.

We disabled the power cord from the back of the media console (where the HDMI cables connect) and left it off for a minute or two.

Powered the media console back on and it is working as expected.

Was told by the Bose tech that the common reason for this issue is due to the use of the HDMI cables that have a propritary security protocol that is used between the media console and the component it is attached to (ie TV, Cable/Sat, BluRay ...ect).

I asked if there was a BIOS upgrade if it was indeed a "handshaking" issue and was told there was not one (yet).

If one becomes available, it will be shipped via mail on a CD\DVD that can be used in a CD\DVD player that is connected to the media console using the HDMI cable.

Bose Lifestyle 38 Unsupported Format message


All you have to do is carefully take the top off and clean the "Iris" which is the reader with a little alcohol and cotton swab. Bose will charge $165 plus shipping to do this. Go to website metacafe.com and search how to clean DVD players and it will show a video, easy to understand.
