Question about Bose Lifestyle 48 System

Only sound for cd/dvd

Hi, I purchased a lifestyle 48 2 years ago, and suddenly now there is no sound in the following modes, tv, aux, cable/sat, stored. We only get sound when we play a cd or dvd. Any advice would be great. We have checked all the connections and they are fine.
Thank you,
Lisa

    After checking the cables and finding and them ok, we called Bose.  They suggested it was a software problem and suggested unplugging the system for 10 seconds and that would reset the software.  We did it and everything is working fine now.  The tech mentioned that occasionally the software freezes and this sometimes works, he said it shouldn't happen often.  Hopefully this post will help others, thanks for your suggestions.

    Bose Lifestyle 48 ser iv. There is sound from the internal CD/DVD and the radio tuner, however all the external sources (ie Hi Def Free to Air set top box running in HDMI & Sat/Cbl running component with AV leads) will display a picture, but no sound.

    Setup was working fine, however has now started to play up.

    There are no kids to mess with Remote control, no "mute" buttons pushed accidently - all the usual obvious things checked. Bose system, Sat box and settop box have all been rebooted with no change.

    Will try the 10 sec unplug method and report back.

Could be damaged cable between the media centre and bass module (check along cable length for damage, kinks or at DIN plug ends for bent/damaged pins), faulty media centre (unlikely) or fault in the bass module....

I have lost my sound from TV through the Bose Lifestyle 48 recently. All other sound sources work fine- DVD/CD, FM/AM.


Hello Sunny,

No TV model... came through with your
Bose LifeStyle home theater question...

I'm just going to mention that I have seen a couple of available configurations... depending on your signal source... BROADCAST, CABLE, SATELITE... (etc.)...

If it is Just your intention to source from the TV...
THERE (at the TV)...
It might be as simple as going into "menu" ... then move down to your "AUDIO" PROFILE.. and make sure your external speaker OPTION is showing "ON" (or "equipped")...

"
on your TV and making sure your PRIMARY volumes sources & destinations (Bose) volumes at acceptable levels... so as to not FRIGHTEN your neighborhood when the sound does come through)

No success ... comment me back with your TV signal source...
HMDI or optical outputs... (and does your AUDIO Work in STAND-ALONE on the TV... Now??)

If all else is working on the BOSE... I don't think we need to continue there...

Comment me back if you need... I'll be around!

Post comments... addendum

(I did say Menu... (twice))...

RESET , General:

**WARNING:
This operation will clear all of your customized settings.

V... depicts the volume down button on your remote
(immediately above the "menu" button).

With the set turned off...Stand in front of TV.

At the right side on the TV set... locate the power
button on the right side...

WHILE holding down the V (on the remote)
Turn on the TV POWER button on the TV.

(The TV will turn itself off, then back on again.)

Then ... V (symbol) Release the button.

**WARNING:
This operation will clear all of your customized settings...

I'll still be here... comment me back... if you need.

Hope it helps

Pink and green colours seem to be too vibrant when watching dvd's on lifestyle 48


I have a Lifestyle 48 which suddenly started producing a pink and green image when playing DVDs (regular TV was fine.) After speaking with Bose support, I did the following which resolved the problem:

1. Removed power from the video switcher. (or from the bose itself if you don't use the switcher.)

2. Reattach all the video cables on the back of the bose and ensure all connections to the TV and switcher (if applicable) are tight.

After performing these steps, my DVD image went back to normal. I suspect it was a loose cable in the end, but no harm in performing the power disconnect.

hook up computer straight to t.v with hdmi cable. then get two aux cables (usually red and white) and run them straight from tv audio OUTPUT to audio INPUT on bose system. them anytime you want surround sound even when your watching tv just press the aux button on the bose system controller. should be perfect.

No sound in left side speakers


Swap the left and right cables to see if it's in the Bose or in the TV.

Connect lifestyle 48 to plasma and dvr


You need to buy a Bose VS 2, video enhancer. Your cable/sattelite, vcr and aux connect to the VS 2 and the VS2 connects one HDMI cable to the TV. The VS2 then upconverts DVDs played on the lifestyle through the VS2/HDMI.

Hello, i have a vizio flat screen tv and i don't know the correct places to connect the cables of my Bose Lifestyle 48 Series IV DVD Home Entertainment System. Please help me


Does the Bose have HDMI out? Does the tv have an HDMI socket?
If it does just connect them both together. All inputs i.e. cd, ps3 dvd etc will go into the Bose.

I need to know how to hook up DVD player with Cable TV I have the cable with the white yellow and red. I hook one end into the TV and one into the DVD player. I don't get a pic or sound. I do not havethe...


The key is having at least a Universal Remote ($10.00 or less) that will operate your brand of TV. Your TV is only looking at "stations". You need to make it see Aux-1, Aux-2, or Line In mode. BUT, another trick is to run the DVD into your VCR (if capable). Select the VCR proper "input mode" (Aux-1, Aux-2, or Line In mode) then the DVD will play through the VCR and it will play through the TV on either channel 3 or 4. Problem solved!

No external sound


Try power cycling (unplug power from rear, wait 20 seconds and the power back up). As far as the left side audio problem, confirm you do not have the left analog input (white) plugged into the device digital input which is located below the right (red) input jack. The Left input jack is above the right input jack.

Hooking up home theater


Run a regular RCA type audio cable from your TV audio out to your Home Theatre audio in. That is what I have done recently with my Samsung LCD and Home Theater. You then have to put your Home Theater on Aux 1 or Aux 2 to get the sound from TV. Ensure your TV's volume is off.
