Question about Bose Lifestyle 48 System

2 Answers

I purchased an expensive Bose system three years ago that the place of purchase now tells me is a dinasaur. I have had nothing but trouble for almost as long as I had the system but attributed all of my problems to the time warner cable service. After doing everything from testing and changing the lines to the house without success, I switched to Verizon FIOS. The problem of the TV losing video but maintaining audio is still intermittently occuring. Now tonight I turned the TV on as usual waited for everything to boot up and there was again NO video. I looked at the BOSE box and it said SV-2 not found. Rarely but every once in a while the BOSE system will shut right down with me being no where near the remote. I have to grab the remote and power it up again. I am technically illiterate but I am starting to think that all of my problems for the past three years is due to a defective BOSE system. For starters any idea how to fix the SV-2 not found "in laymans terms". They have everything running through a monster cable power strip with HDmI???? I spent a small fortune on this system three years ago money has dried up and I am looking for a job. Help Thanks

    I appreciate the experts attempt to help but he stated that he wasnt really knowledgable about my product. I hope someone can provide guidance to resolve my issue. The unit is a Bose model AV 48 media center. It was supposedly professionally installed and the wires go into a Bose Video strip thing monster cable

SV-2 indicates that the second round connector in your system; called an S-Video plug
is not delivering video only to your TV set. (you must use a red and, white rca plug with the s-video plug to receive stereo sound and, video.
HDMI is: High Definition it is a very thin parallelogram shaped plug that delivers High definition audio and, video on one cable.
I would agree that your unit is defective,
transient signals should not cause you unit to just turn off or, reset it's inputs.
use your TV menu to see which inputs you are set for on the tv: video1, video2, HDMI, s-video1, s-video2 etc.
the audio system and, the TV must be connected on the same input choice.
let me know what you see.

First of all, I don't know much about these, but I do know that 19 out of 20 people do not like them or recommend them. I will give you the website of reviews for reference:

Aside from people considering it a poor system for the money, the easiest way to really determine if it's your system or the provider, is to employ subsitute comparison, since the system is complex. Otherwise, a shop could spend hours narrowing it down.

If you're referring to the VS-2 instead of SV-2, there may exist a tv incompatibility. Here's an excerpt from one-call.com:

The new VS-2 video enhancer
Included with the Lifestyle(R) 48 Series IV system, the VS-2 delivers one-button simplicity - press a single source button to get the video you want and audio to match. The VS-2 video enhancer also automatically upscales over HDMI up to 1080p, giving your TV the best-quality picture it can accept. The VS-2 works with the majority of TVs with HDMI and is Simplay-HD(TM) verified.
Hope this helps.

The Bose Wave System was very expensive, and should be at least checked with someone that can give an honest assessment. It is possible the Laser Pickup Assembly may need a good cleaning, if it works you can enjoy more time with it. If it fails then it is a matter of choice.

Our Bose Wave music system has stopped working - it is 5 years old - suspect a power supply problem - other than the three screws - how does one remove the cover without breaking it?


Hi,
Our bose wave system stopped working also. The remote wouldn't work, it wouldn't turn off nothing. So finally we re-set it by clicking the button on the power strip it was plugged into.
It then worked! we had a power glitch a few weeks ago and think that had something to do with it. I hope this helped, and helps others!

Better sound through bose speakers?


If you have the money to plunk down for a Bose Acoustimass home theater speaker system, I'm sure you will be quite pleased. Of course, as you indicated, appropriate placement of the speakers is important. Still, I'm sure you will find that a properly placed Bose Acoustimass speaker system will fill your room with high quality sound, substantially better than Onkyo's stock speakers placed equally well.

I own a Technics home theater system, which I initially purchased to use in my family room. Yet, when I listened to a Bose Lifestyle system (powered by Bose Acoustimass speakers), I could have nothing less. The Bose system went in the family room, where everyone could enjoy it. I put the Technics system in the bedroom, where it is rarely used.

DVD won't play and door won't open


Since you purchased a Bose system, I can only assume that you know nothing about electronics.  Therefore, I would suggest you take it to a repairman rather than try to open it.
Or, you could just buy something that isn't Bose for 1/10th the price and get twice the quality.
If you must be adventurous, you can open the unit and try to figure out what is jammed up and manually remove the DVD.  Again, if you know nothing about electronics, this could get you very hurt or killed.

Bose System Bose 321 unsupported format with dvd's


You need to stand at the front of a Bose store and tell everyone about to enter your story, until the manager of the store agrees to give you a new one. This looks like an ongoing problem that Bose knows about and will not address. $900+ and maybe 60 hours dvd time and I'm on the same boat. I thought Bose could be a trusted company.

Simply doesn't work


The only contact with which I am familiar was made by a friend of mine who had received one of the original Bose receivers. Some six weeks later, she learned that they had become available with a CD player so she called Bose customer service and although she was not the original purchaser (her son had given it to her on a birthday), they immediately offered to accept the unit back and she paid only the difference between the two units.
I've heard other good reports about the company's attitude toward customers so I wouldn't hold back from calling them on their toll-free number that is probably in your literature.  
Good luck, and it would be helpful if you would post back your experience (good or bad) with them to help guide others.

Bose does not release their parts lists or schematics, effectively creating a monopoly for parts and repairs. In fact, their web site says that the Bose factory is the only option for service or repair. They used to list a flat rate repair charge on the web site, but removed it - probably because it scared too many people. Their troubleshooting guide (below) might help, but it's very simplistic.

Before you invest in expensive factory repair on one of these trouble prone sets, you might want to investigate the new HD radios -- better sound at a MUCH lower price.
