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!

Want to play my sounds through my tv or bluray


This unit has HDMI out so if you can connect it to your TV with an HDMI cable it should carry both Audio and Video. You say that it won't play DVDs so it makes me think you might have a bad player that you will have get replace through warranty. If you have it connected to your tv and you see some form of welcome screen come up when you power on the DVD player but it won't play discs I would exchange it. As far as other codec are concerned, it says that WMA and other formats are "available". This seems to mean that they are not pre-loaded but the device is capable of using them after some process is followed to install them. I can't tell from their site if the player has internet capabilities or not. One spec said that it has wireless but no other details. If you can connect it to the internet then I would guess the menu would have a way to update it through the internet adding in the new Codec other wise you might have to download them from another computer and put them on a usb drive to install them.
I hope this helps. Good luck

Sub would only sound when am listening to radio would not sound when playing dud aux but surround speakers play


Possible that the connection to the AUX does not activate if you are using RCA inputs. Connect the DVD using the optical cable or the coaxial link and it must play better with surround and subwoofer in DTS.

DVD Problem


Call Bose and they will send you an update CD to update the firmware of the CD/DVD player. I had a problem where a few of my new movies would not play at all. They sent me an update, no more issues. If you're a registered owner, they will send update CDs frequently, be sure you're registered as well.
