Question about Bose Lifestyle 18 System
Basically no sound at all...dvd plays looks like radio is playing cds play but everything with no sound.
The cables seem to be connected allright the woofer keeps blinking the green light.
any tips for me?
Hi, best practice when troubleshooting a no-sound Bose Lifesytle system is to first begin with the internal sources (i.e. the AM/FM). Bose Lifestyle system when connected properly (media center and bass box via the data cable) should show a steady green light underneath the bass module. Begin by simply playing AM/FM tuner and try to increase the volume till 45 (normally the sound becomes audible at this level). If the system still has no sound, then try to check if the bass module is steady green. When you see a blinking green LED (slow green) then do kindly check the DIP siwtch (red latch switch with white mini switches) just beside the Light and data connection. All of the switches should be in "ON" position (basically toggled upwards with the arrow marking indication). Before changing DIP switch settings do ensure that the bass module is not connected to the electrical power. after ensuring that all DIP switch are in the "ON" position, connect the data cable firs and then power up the bass module. Then you should see the bass module blink green twice and once you turn on the nedia center, the green blinking should turn steady green. That should sort out your problem.
Also do note tha this procedure applies only to Series II Lifesytle System and does not include the Series IV (with the smaller bass module).
If all still fails, there is an internal problem with the bass module which would require servicing.
Hope this helps!
