Re: On my Bose Lifestyle 38 color is different.

Try a different SCART lead, if not try connecting to a different SCART slot on your TV.

If the problem persists I'd contact bose and have them repair it, its not worth taking apart a three grand system if you are not sure what you are doing.

When playing a dvd the color is in b&w only

I have had exactly this problem when changing TVs. Initially I had the sVideo out cable from the Bose with a scart plug on TV end - that worked fine on old TV. On new TV, first Samsung, second SOny, got Black and white video picture. To get it to work I used a component video cable - this is a short svideo cable with a an audio cable at the Bose end. It splits into a 3way R G B cable within 2- 3 inches at Bose end. I then plugged rgb extension cables into this and TV and worked perfectly.
I found the answer to this by errr...... reading the BOse doucumentation I reveived when I bought the Lifestyle system 5 years ago.
Good luck

Black and White instead of color

Assuming you are using the VS-2 with your system. I have experienced the same problem when I fiddle with equipment. Each time it is due to the S-video plug from the VS-2 cable becoming loose or detached. Make sure every cord is re-inserted into the back of the LS 38.
