Inside the settings there is an option for video output, you may have switched it by accident. If you can still see the menu enough go into settings. I would try first:
Video > Video Connector > Component/Composite and switch between the two.
Otherwise try the NTSC or PAL settings.
when this happened to me,,,I found out it meant that the video decoding ASIC was out....I could not get any DVD's to play to the TV, and finally, the "settings" menu would not go on the television screen....this means you need to have the mainboard replaced, and after twice doing this,,,,the Tech on the phone told me that the Video Decoding ASIC is very susceptible to power spikes,,,so I put a big APC filter in front of it....
Here's what the Bose support website suggests. Good Luck!
Messages displayed during a Music Information Update
Messages may appear on your media center display during a Music Information Update. If you see a message with instructions to call Bose, and a three-digit code such as "Error Code 802" or "Failed 172" while performing a Music Information Update, it does not necessarily mean there's something wrong with the system. Performing a media center reset and installing the update again may address the issue.
To reset your media center, follow these steps:
Turn the media center off. Wait two minutes
Unplug the power cord from the media center. Wait 30 seconds
Reconnect the power cord
Wait until "Bose Lifestyle" disappears from the screen
Note: After a reset, you will need to wait several minutes before playing stored music (3 to 20 minutes, depending on how many CDs have been stored). All other sources will be available immediately after the system powers up.
If you have any additional questions about these messages, please contactBose® Technical Support or call 1-800-278-1281.
No. You would need some kind of audio out connections on the back of the media center. The only audio outs it has are the Acoustimass® Module – SPDIF connector.
Unless you were to hook up an amp before the Bose media center. In other words, you could run your TV to another amp's line in. You would hook up additional speakers to this other amp, then run audio line outs to the line in of your Bose media center. Some stereo amps have a line out or record/tape out, it is from here that you would run the cables to your Bose media center line ins. The disadvantage to doing it this way is you would have to plug all your media devices (dvd, tv, etc) into this amp first and your Bose remote wouldn't let you switch between devices. If your media devices you have offer digital audio, then you would want an amp that also offers a digital out for the best sound. Otherwise you will end up with analog out from this amp to the Bose media center and thus lose any of the digital signal information like surround information. So there isn't much point in doing this. If your gonna get an amp that has all the digital in's and out's, you might as well just use it with new speakers and forget the Bose system you have.
turn off the accoustimas, unplug the power code from the accoustimas and the media center and leave it for 15 sec. Then, plug the power code onto the accoustimas and turn it on. then plug the power code of the media center on. Turn media center on.
Unplug the Bose Media Center from the wall. Leave unplugged for approximately 30 minutes. Then plug the unit back in. Allow a few minutes for the Media center to initialize. Your sound should return as normal.
