Hello I have a bose surround sound system in my house, both inside and out. It appears that only the inside portion of the surround system works and the remote for the outside portion the RC48S2-27 model...

I think we're discussing the Personal Music Center II.

I had to back into the product from the remote model number. Can we assume you also have one of the compatible LS systems (18 or 28 Series II or the 38 or 48) ?

You can go to and search for it or register and download the manual for free at

The first item in Troubleshooting (page 28) might explain what's happening.

Dvd stuck in media center how can I get it out

If the tray won't open then the safest way is to take the top off the media center and then the cover off the DVD player inside.

It's more than likely the tray belt has stretched. Take the old one off, measure it and get one a couple of mm smaller.

I have a Boise AV28 Media Center and the video flickers when you try to play a DVD I was adjusting sound, and hit a button on the remote which caused the flickerig as I was in the settings menu. Is there...

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. GOOD LUCK!

Bose av28 access menu using control buttons

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....

Bose lifestyle 28 will not come on?

The Bose Lifestyle System has two power connection. One is the adaptor for the media center/DVD and the other one is the bass module/ subwoofer. Both has physical indicators showing that power is present. If your pwoer adaptor is ok, then the media center display should show "BOSE LIFESTYLE SYSTEMS" on startup. The bass module power module should be OK when you see a green blinking or steady linght underneath.

If only the media center/DVD has no display then there is something wrong with your pwer adaptor and should be sent for repair.

Hope I have helped you

Additional speakers for 321 system

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.

The Media Center system doesn't work and the AdaptiQ CD (2) is in the Media Center. We can't put out the CD. There's standing on the display Bose lifestyle. Has someone the solution to the problem?

Unplug the media center power at the rear power plug. Leave off for 20 seconds. Remove the AdaptIQ headsets plugged into the AUX input. Power the system back up but leave alone for about 10 minutes. After 10 minutes come back and press the "open/close" button the wait 30 seconds or more for the tray to open. Be patient, the media center is processing a huge amount of data and needs time to respond to your commands. It is important to leave the media center undisturbed for approximately 10 minutes after running AdaptIQ setup. After about ten minutes, power down the power back up. You should be ready to go after that.
