I bought the bose lifestyle system from america, and it was working perfectly over there. We then moved to India, and now the system doesn't work properly. We have a proper converter and stabilizer for the bose system, which acts as a voltage converter from 220 volts to 110 volts.
The problem is that, sometimes the bose system just turns off automatically after 5 - 10 minutes. I then have to turn off the main switch for some time, about 2-3 minutes. Then when I turn on the bose system, then it works again for 5 - 10 minutes.
Do anyone of you know what to do, or if you have faced the similar problems, please reply.

Re: Turning Off Irregularily
A voltage converter is not neccessarily the proper piece of equipment to use as most equpment comes with a 120/230 voltage selector. What is probably causing your problem is power frquency. Power in India runs on 50HZ, not the 60Hz we use in the states. This causes a slightly longer peak wave and can cause over heating, therefore shutdown. Check to see if the unit has a 50/60 switch and switch to accordingly.
Back when I was a professional sound engineer and toured abroad, we used a device called an auto-former. These changed the frequency and voltage as needed. Unfortunately the first time I went to England I forgot about this, could not find any pre-built ones and had to spend nearly a week designing and fabricating 8 of them....

Hi,Did you get solution to your problem?If so let me know..Even we bought Bose V25 and planning to move it to India..did you face any problems else evrything worked out good for you?your answer regarding my problem is very precious..please reply me..
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.
audio has to connected seperatly.vs 2 is for video connection only..Bose is a ripoff.... u pay all that money and you need a seperate audio connection plus all those wires..it isn't worth it and regret i bought it.
