Bose lifestyle 25 system and Panasonic Plasma Tv not working together

I have a Bose Lifestyle 25 system that has been working just fine on a large screen tv for the past few years. I just purchased a new Panasonic Plasma 50 " TV. Everything is hooked up right. The problem is that the Bose remote, which should work anywhere in the house will only work when it is right above the Bose lifestyle system. If I move the remote 24 inches away, it stops working. If I turn off the Plasma TV, the Bose system will work fine anywhere in the home. I have called both and Bose and Panasonic and they keep telling me that the other company is the problem. Bose says that Panasonic Plasmas have EMI (electro magnetic interference) that is their fault. Panasonic says Bose has the problem. I have moved the unit away from the tv, I have changed the cords to other separate outlets. I moved the power cords away from each other. I just do not know what to do other than return the Plasma. Any help would be appreciated!

Re: Bose lifestyle 25 system and Panasonic Plasma Tv not...

I posted the message as Tet Tet before. I can now tell you that I have resolved the problem. The issue is with the Panasonic 50Inch TV. Some people reported the same problem but only when the TV was up on the wall. It turns out that the problem lies with the metal discs which screw on at the back of the TV to enable you to hand the TV on the wall bracket. In my case I had excessive interference caused at the back of the TV (could be the fan). When I put the TV on the wall bracket the metal discs would be in contact with the wall bracket which in turn was acting as an antenna causing the iterference to the bose remote which operates at a frequency of 27.45MHz. You can solve the issue by adding some insulating tape around all the metal discs avoiding them to make contact with the wall bracket. If that fails Panasonic will swap your TV for another one like they did with me. I can now enjoy my Bose System with the 50 inch Panasonic TV. It took me three months but managed to get a solution. I hope this helps. For further info you can mail me at These discs should be made of metal because they are perforating the metal screen at the back of the TV. Panasonic please change this design.

Thanks RizzoMan, I did finally exchanged the Pansonic for another Pansonic, same model, and now I have no problem. When I took it back to the store the associate said they have had the same problem with other Pansonics too. I was hoping this would not happen again and it hasn't. We are totally enjoying our new Pansonic Plsma and Bose. Thanks for your reply. Tet Tet

Trying to connecting my Bose lifestyle to my Samsung led smart tv to play a DVD with a yellow video cord and picture is blurry and double and has jo color? Any ideas how to fix Bose lifestyle is older...

Without the specific LifeStyle model # it's not easy to say for sure, but it sounds like you might have a composite cable plugged into a component video output of the Bose. Assuming it does not have HDMI output, it might have white/red/yellow (RCA-type jacks, aka "phono") and that yellow jack is a composite video output. It would plug into the same color jack on the TV. There are also RGB (Red/Green/Blue) component outputs on many devices and similar inputs on the TV, so you have to match like color out to same color in and make sure the TV is set to composite video input, not HDMI nor component.

Also could just be a bad cable. It's always the cheap things that we overlook, so with the same output/input setup, assuming you match type, try a different cable. The actual color of the end on the cable does not matter, but don't plug a yellow-colored output jack to a red, white, blue or green input jack on the TV - that won't work.

This all depends on what Bose system it is.. I'm assuming it's a Lifestyle system of some kind. Regardless, you could just run video from the PS3 (HDMI or other) to the TV, and keep the audio going to the Bose. Use optical if you want digital 5.1.

Interference with bose sound system


Have you tried hooking the Bose LIfestyle 48 to an external antenna? Additionally, you may want to use coaxial cable for the antenna lead in also.

Another area you may want to check is if the Panasonic is using polarized plug with a grounding plug and/or that your house wiring uses a grounding wire other than the live and neutral.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
