My bose lifestyle system will only play DVDs in black and white. I don't know what happened. A few weeks ago, before this problem was noticed, my son did reach behind it to try to unplug it.

You need to re set the FORMAT back to your proper one. If in USA, then it's NTSC, UK, is PAL. Simply get into your settings ON BOTH TV and DVD and ensure your FORMAT is set correctly.

Connect lifestyle 48 to plasma and dvr


You need to buy a Bose VS 2, video enhancer. Your cable/sattelite, vcr and aux connect to the VS 2 and the VS2 connects one HDMI cable to the TV. The VS2 then upconverts DVDs played on the lifestyle through the VS2/HDMI.

Bose lifestyles v28 plays dvds in black and white


Check your video output settings in the menu. If you are using a composite video output and do not have the system sut up for it, you will get a B&W picture. Check your menu settings.

Bose lifestyle 48 dvd black and white only


Go to the "Bose" menu screen viewing on your TV (make sure no dvd is in the player) Go to your Video controls and check your output, chances are, if your using the component output your player is set to "S-Video". Should fix the problem. Hope this helps. If it's still not viewing correctly, post a comment and I will help you some more

Bose Lifestyle 48 System play's dvd in black & white only also connect to vs-2 video enhacer hello, my bose lifestyle 48 only plays DVD's in black and white. I can't find a setting or a reason why it...


Your s-video cable at the back of your media center is loose. This will cause black and white internal video and is known to fall out or just become loose from minor movement. (it's the nature of s-video cables) This should solve your problem. This is the s-video cable that connects to the VS2 and media center.
If this doesn't solve the problem (I'd be surprised), just reset it by unplugging the DC power cable at the side of the VS-2 for about 30+ seconds and plug it back in..

We had the same issue. The svideo cable was no longer connected. It had become unconnected when we were connecting a game system.

DVD problem - now only plays in black and white


Check the video connections on the back of the Bose unit. I have a Lifestyle 38 and had an issue with video only playing in black & white. Turned out to be a loose connection.
