Question about Bose Lifestyle 28 System

DVD'S stop playing

More times than not while watching a DVD I get the "x cannot read disc" message. This sometimes happens during the begining, middle or end. I've cleaned discs and played new discs with similar results.

    I have the same problem (cannot read disc message) when playing every single dvd in my life style 35 series II.

    Please let me know if somebody knows how to fix it (I have took it for service 3 times already!! and they can't fix it)

    I'm having the same issue... I sat down to watch a DVD and it stopped about a third of the way in saying "Can't Read Disc". I have taken it out and tried to play it again, but everytime it gets to the same point I get the same message! I even took the DVD back to the shop and swapped it as faulty... Still stops in exactly the same place. If anyone knows how to fix this I would love to hear from you.

Hey folks,

I have a Lifestyle 48 with the same issue. I spoke to tech support at Bose and had it explained to me this way. My Lifestyle 48 was purchased in 2006, but the hard drive and the optical reader were from as far back as 2004. Well since that point most new DVD's are double embedded, if I remember correctly. Now the manufacturers embed more information on the DVD in a double layer. They stick all those director's cuts and all the other **** that no one watches all on one DVD now instead of requiring two or three DVD's. Ultimately, this f***s up your Bose system. As for me, every DVD that I try to watch now freezes up at some point and gives me a Cannot Read error. The tech I spoke with at Bose said this is an industry wide problem and he had the same problem with his XBox. It has become so prevalent that Microsoft is now saying not to use the XBox to play DVD's. The tech I spoke with said they could send me a firmware update, but there is no guarantee that it will correct the problem. His suggestion was to have the system in to have the guts replaced. This is something that Bose is doing free of charge plus they give you a new 1 year warranty on the new parts. Since I spoke to them they have sent a box to my house with all the packing material. My job is to pack up the main unit and ship it off to Framingham, MA. I have been told that repairs and returns are currently taking 3 to 4 weeks. I do suggest you call Bose, talk to them and they will take it from there. In my case they are definitely standing behind their product. Good luck.

You need to contact Bose who will send you an update disc. For them to do this your system needs to be registered so you will need to supply them with your serial number. Once your system is registered you should receive update discs automatically. Hope this helps...

DVD Player stops reading disc Error message :


usually this happens when lens cannot read the the disc. Due to few reason 1 Your disk is scratched 2 Your DVD lens is covered with dust 3 You need to replace DVD lens
Try another few CD/DVD to rectify whether there is any problem with dvd you are trying to play
if this error occurs on all the dvd you played then the most likely proble is with your DVD lens either its coverd with dust use Disk cleaner if not you got to replace a new DVD lense as per model

TruTech Malfunction!


You could try using a laser lens cleaner.

Radio Shack makes one called "Carbonedge"
The RS catalog # is 42-209.

Whatever you do do NOT take the unit apart and try to clean the laser lens by hand. It is easily damaged.

LAPTOP DVD DRIVE WONT PLAY DVDS ANYMORE


Drive is on its way. Typical behaviour. Try air dusting lens but unlikely to fix it. Very easy diy repair and cheap. EBay the new disc drive or refurbished. Then go to youtube. Nearly all laptop drives are the same to replace no matTerry brand. You could even get a faster drive.

DVD Player Problems


Me three, same thing, reads 'no disc' or just won't play it. I have found that it happens more frequently on rental DVD's and that running a cleaner cd through several times helps but eventually that will even stop working. No idea what the problem is

Some models of PIONEER cd players had radio frequency problems that caused them to work on and off. Are you near any radio or braodcast towers? Poorly shielded power supplies cause this as well. A weak laser diode in the pick-up assembly in model runs could be the problem. You might want to Google the model number and see if this is common for these units.
