Re: Bose lifestyle 28 no power
There's no easy way to put this. This media center will need a repair. If you know the outlet works, and the power supply works. It couldn't be anything that's easily fixable. Make sure you don't have a dual-voltage power supply (red switch for 120v/230-240v). If so, change to 120v for us power. Otherwise this is pretty straight forward. You can call bose for a repair- 800-367-4008. $165 + tax flat rate. New 1 year warranty.

If you want to connect your PC's audio output to the Bose Lifestyle system, simply get a cable with 3.5mm stereo male plug on one end, and dual RCA male plugs on the other end. The 3.5mm side will plug in to your PC's LINE OUT jack. The two RCA male connectors will plug in to the Bose AUX IN jacks. On the Bose console (or the remote control) select AUX as the audio source. Your PC's sound will play through the Bose Lifestyle system.
For persons having a large library of MP3 music files on their PC, this is a great way to listen to the music on your hard disk.
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.
I have also have this problem with a lifestyle 28 system. Bose sent me a new cable then a software update. The problem remained, after contacting Bose and unplugging cables and powering down the system this solved the problem. However 2 days after and the problem has re-appeared. Back to square one. I should add that this is the second unit I have had the retailer exchanged the last one because of the same problem.
