Question about Bose RC-18S Remote Control

1 Answer

Can't use on-screen programming

I've been trying to set the universal remote on my Bose Lifestyle 28 system to work with other devices.  The instructions tell me to use the on-screen menu, but no menu shows up.  I know the Bose is connected to the TV and going through the right input since everything else works.  When it comes to the on-screen menu, though, all I get is the default Bose screen of pink and purple clouds.

    The problem was actually solved. The bose people were great when I called them. They told me that sometimes having a router or other device near the system triggers a bug and the on-screen help doesn't work. They had me unplug the system for 30 seconds and then replug it in to reset it. After that, the on-screen menu appeared.

Hmm pink clouds huh? Sound like something is wrong? I think you might want to try to contact Home Solutions and either put in for a service call or look into getting the media center repaired. I would get it repaired if it plays DVD's fine

If you wish to buy its original remote control, contact the authorized service centre, or authorized dealer to your device brand. They can either give you a genuine remote control to your device, or can direct you, from where can you purchased a suitable one.
To select a proper universal remote control, you should know about the number of digits to its set-up codes. There are 3 digit, 4 digit, 5 digit, 2 digit and even single digit codes, to some brand devices. After confirming this, check the sites linked here. Both the sites have set-up code list and set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Check which brand remote control has set-up code/s to your device brand, and buy that one according to availability? Brand name of the remote control isn't a matter, but it should have set-up codes in its code list, to the device brand you have.
Please note: Every new universal remote control will have set-up code list, and set-up procedure along with its pack. Never accept a remote control, that hasn't both of this. For more details about the set-up codes, visit the site http://electrohelponline.blogspot.com/ Check this site too. http://remotesearch.blogspot.com/ If you see these sites by "MOSAIC" or "Magazine" view will make surf easier. Or type in the brand name of your device in the search box, and press "Enter".
Universal remote controls are available at most of the electronic spare part selling shops.

I have a Bose Lifestyle 28/35 DVD system, and I haven't been able to find a code that works.


028,017,033,018,047 are the codes to check. If you wish to get more setup codes, three digits, four digits or five digit ones, check this link. Pull up older posts there. Setup code list and setup instructions to some popular model remote controls are given. Select the 'Timeslide' option from the drop-down list by the 'Sidebar' at the display window. It will make search easy.

Can Monster AVL300 control Bose Lifestyle


Sure it can control the Bose system. Some how I find this remote compatible with a lot of devices but it won't function with the most common devices like a Blu ray DVD player. It won't even turn it on or off. So try and let me know if it worked. Good luck.

My Bose remote control RC28TI-27 (for a Bose Lifestyle 48 system) has a heavy rattle in the top portion inside of it. I want to disassemble it and see if it is an easy fix. How do I get it to split apart...


Did you find a solution? I unscrewed the screw under the battery compartment lid near the rear end of the remote. The rattle is a broken radio frequency antenna. A replacement for this ancient remote is $89 plus shipping and handling. Supposedly the Bose systems can also be programmed with some universal remotes without rf antennae.

Harmony 900 to control Bose Lifestyle problem.


Press the system button on the Lifestyle remote control. Move right to see a preview of the remote control. Press the down button to move into the submenus. Go down to IR Control. Select "on" System receives IR commands from another remote that has been taught to operate this system. Press exit and take a breath and try your Harmony remote. It should work. I had the same problem and this fixed it after hours of screwing around. Good Luck
