Question about Bose 3 2 1 GSX System
Normally your system should save its preferences and subsequently switch off. I suggest you completely unplug the system, wait for one minute and plug the system back in. it should start up with a message Lifestyle system XXX and then be available. If it does not start up with this message, I suggest you call Bose and ask for your system to be picked up for repair.

SOURCE: Lifestyle 48 locked up
Just got off phone with Bose support with this very problem during install of a VS-2 software updtae to an older LS48 system. (Bose support personnel were very helpful on phone - and walked me through procedure to solve). I presume you unplugged and replugged power supply with no resolution. In that case, unplug power supply, wait 30 seconds and while holding down the "open/close button" and the "store" button (on media center) plug the power supply back in. Continue holding until the "Bose Lifestyle" message disappears. I presume this puts the system into a diagnostic mode, as the next steps in my case were to press and hold the "erase" button while scrolling through a menu of options using the "volume up" button. I believe it was the third "volume up" press that brought me to "FLASH" on the system screen. At that point I was told to release the "erase" button and press the enter button. The system rebooted and my VS-2 install went smoothly after that.
I'd recomend calling Bose support (800-905-2138) since your lockup occured during a CD load vs a software update (just to be on the safe side) - I was talking to a live tech support person in less than 15 seconds... a pleasant surprise.

My display has not been working for years. Replaced c17 cap wich was 33uF 63 volts on lower pcb board( only one on system) . Old cap was good so this was not the problem. Replaced c16 wich was 100uF 25 volts with a 100uF 63volts. Display works, old cap read low. Both c17, and c16 are located on the lower left hand corner of the larger pcb looking from the front of the unit. Hope this helps.

You can only Connect a iPod via a iPod dock
Apple iPod Univeral Dock
and use either
Apple Composite AV Cable or Apple Component AV Cable
based on what Output you iPod Allows.
the list of which iPod that is supported is listed on each page of the AV Cables above.
You can use a IR Blaster Cable with the iPod Dock to control the iPod also.

1-connect the blu-ray to your tv via hdmi cable and this will run picture.
2-connect the blu-ray via digital optical cable to the optical input on the bose system. then using your bose menu, (system menu)set your auxillary sound output to digital optical.
