Bose Lifestyle 48 System Set to Wrong Input (Black screen)

When I press the system or settings button on my Bose Lifestyle 48 remote and change the input I just get a black screen. I tried to switch to the DVD in put by pressing "DVD" but I'm hooked up to a HDTV so it can hear the sound but not the video input...The problem is that I accidentally changed the video input on the Bose system when I tried hooking my xbox up to the bose. I have a potential solution but I need someone's help....
Can someone who's Bose is working give me instructions on how to change the TV input? I know the system is working its just on a different input..So when i press "System", it says see tv but goes to a black screen. I can still change the settings I just can't see what I'm pressing. SO if one of you could tell me what buttons to press in order to change the TV in put, I could try fixing the problem on my bose...Please help..

SOURCE: Bose Lifestyle 48 System play's dvd in black & white only

Your s-video cable at the back of your media center is loose. This will cause black and white internal video and is known to fall out or just become loose from minor movement. (it's the nature of s-video cables) This should solve your problem. This is the s-video cable that connects to the VS2 and media center.
If this doesn't solve the problem (I'd be surprised), just reset it by unplugging the DC power cable at the side of the VS-2 for about 30+ seconds and plug it back in..

SOURCE: bose lifestyle 48 dvd black and white only

Go to the "Bose" menu screen viewing on your TV (make sure no dvd is in the player) Go to your Video controls and check your output, chances are, if your using the component output your player is set to "S-Video". Should fix the problem. Hope this helps. If it's still not viewing correctly, post a comment and I will help you some more

Using the remote control, and the on-screen settings menu, you must set OPTICAL as your AUX input. After this is done, Your Bose Lifestyle system will recognize the signal on the optical input.

Remote control codes for bose


The DirectTV Website has a page to find remote control codes, and it lists lists four different remote controls to choose from. Find it here:

http://www.directv.com/DTVAPP/global/contentPage.jsp?assetId=3580003&

I fired "Bose Lifestyle" into the first choice and it gave me the numbers
31229

here are the instructions from that page:
Setup Instructions
  • Set the "Mode Switch" to AV 2.
  • Press and hold the "Mute" button and the "Select" button until the visible LED blinks twice.
  • Enter the 5 digit Code above.
  • Try your new code and tell us how it worked!

  • I hope that helped.

    Change Bose Lifestyle House Code - doesn't work like in the book


    The solution to this is that the operating manual say you should hold down the wrong button!

    It says hold down the button "store" when then button you should hold down is "enter".

    Have Lifestyle Bose 48 installed by Bose technican. All has been well. I was attempting to watch a movie on Demand from the Cable and it was doing tracking blurring... Must have hit the wrong button on the...


    Does the Bose unit have selections for more than one signal source (video 1, video2, antenna 1, antenna 2, dvd, etc.)? If so, test to be sure that it is set to the correct input. Also, if the television has these options check it as well. Good luck and let me know how you make out.

    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.
