You've probably given up on getting an answer since it has been some months but in case you haven't axed both yet . . .
You might try the DVD player on someone elses TV to isolate the problem to the player or the TV.  Or the reverse; one of the two is not synchronizing right and it is the TV's job to tweak itself to lock the picture from an external source.  It is unusual for any modern TV to have problems synchronizing with another device, even if they aren't too stable so I would suspect the DVD player first.

When playing a dvd the color is in b&w only


I have had exactly this problem when changing TVs. Initially I had the sVideo out cable from the Bose with a scart plug on TV end - that worked fine on old TV. On new TV, first Samsung, second SOny, got Black and white video picture. To get it to work I used a component video cable - this is a short svideo cable with a an audio cable at the Bose end. It splits into a 3way R G B cable within 2- 3 inches at Bose end. I then plugged rgb extension cables into this and TV and worked perfectly.
I found the answer to this by errr...... reading the BOse doucumentation I reveived when I bought the Lifestyle system 5 years ago.
Good luck

Dvd's play with a distinct green tint


Check the component cable from the Bose to the TV, and confirm the output setting on the Bose. If it switched to "S" video it will look green. If your cable is good and your settings are correct, switch from component to standard video and check the picture. Chances are good that it's a setting. Hope this helps. If you still have a problem, post a comment and I will help you some more

Black screen when trying to adjust settings


Double check to be sure the TV is on the proper input.

Can you still play a DVD? If DVDs still play, reset the system by unplugging the power cord for a minute. The menus should return.

If DVDs don't play either you may have accidentally changed a video setting. Fortunately you can access the video settings from series II and III systems with the buttons on top of the console. If would be best to call Bose tech support so they can walk you though accessing the video settings. 800-367-4008

DVD Problem


Call Bose and they will send you an update CD to update the firmware of the CD/DVD player. I had a problem where a few of my new movies would not play at all. They sent me an update, no more issues. If you're a registered owner, they will send update CDs frequently, be sure you're registered as well.

DVD's will no longer play in color


We had the identical problem, which was solved by changing the input channel on our Panasonic plasma screen. This was not obvious and we needed help from the person who installed the system. The input channel had changed automatically!

Akai DHT300 screen rolling


The picture is rolling because there is no sync signal in the composite output. Are you using the RCA jack or the S-video output? Is there another small TV you could hook up for a test to see if the problem appears there? If it does, then the Akai has the issue and needs to be examined further. If not, the TV input may have an issue. You didn't say what the TV is but there is the possibility the video input is looking for external sync from the DVD but that's a bit of a stretch. Can you feed a different source into the video input of the TV to see if you get the same result? Hope this helps.

Pulsing screen


Are you getting this on all video outputs from the DVD? the yellow analog out + the red/blue/green + the S video? Did you try connecting a different source? a digital cable TV tuner, or another DVD player? sometimes DVD players get screwed on some outputs, while the rest stay fine. I have a DVD that has an analog video out that shows an only black and white picture, while the red/blue/green works fine. Good luck
