Question about Bose LifeStyle 5 Series-III CD Shelf System
Console turns on and the CD plays, but no sound. I do get output via the headphone. No sound thru the sub. Do you have a fix......thx
Open or leaking components will look OK but, may not function as designed. Rather than create more problems, please consider whether the unit is worth repairing by a pro/tech, if so, do so.

This can be repaired of it's later than a series 1. (not sure if the 1997 model was a series 1)
Repair cost will be $225 plus tax (flat rate). Shipping is split between you and Bose.
They give you a new 1 year warranty.
Otherwise, Bose can have you trade this in for about 25% off a new, current system.
-If this still powers up, make sure the small 1/8" portion of the input cable (plugged into "system control 1") is in good condition, because you may just need to replace that input cable for a no audio situation. If it's a different series, it will say "zone 1" I think.
In either case, you should call Bose tech support about this. (800-367-4008) Make sure you're with your system so they know what series of LS5 this is.

There should be an AUDIO OUT left and right rca input/output plugs on the back of te TV; according to this, (http://www.bose.co.uk/GB/images/Lifestyle%205%20Series%20II%20Music%20System_tcm6-4083.pdf) the inputs for the audio are right next to the FM antenna port/plug so, if you have one of these; (http://www.inmax.ca/images/rca-cable.gif) just plug them in to the AUDIO OUT on your TV, and into the INPUT on your Bose system.
