Unless you have jerked it or pulled it hard this cord does not malfunction normally.Please inspect the jacks at both the end carefully in good light, and see if the pins are all straight and not bent by chance. If you want a replacement you will have to get it from a Bose store since it is a dedicated cable.
Or else if you want to test it yourself use a continuity tester ( or multimeter in Ohms range ) and touch it pin to pin on each end and see if the continuity on any one pin is broken.

check inside for a blown fuse.also there may be a problem with the board it's self.check to see if youre getting power through the cord and then go from there.check something electrical in the same place you plug in your bose such as a hair dryer and see if that works.if it doesn't check your fuse box for a blown fuse.

I have a Bose lifestyle 25 from 1997 and I need a receiver power cord and a complete harness between the subwoofer and tha acustimass boxes. Do you know where I can find it ? Thank's


There's nothing special about the original power cord, so I'd go to Radio Shack or any electrical supply store and get it for $8.

Or you may have an unused one from other device lying around the house.

eBay has several of the unique connections you want.

Search "Bose lifestyle 25 cable".

Bose products are highly proprietary. If they have non-standard connectors from the amp or in the speakers I'd take that as a clue they're NOT compatible with other manufacturers' products.

How do i get surround sound from my tv on lifestyle 12 which is working correctly with the cd and radio


You might get mulitchannel audio from whatever the TV is watching (cable/satellite/dvd), but not from the TV itself. Try running audio from the cable box to the Bose.

I have a BOSE Lifestyle 48 without sound


Not sure if this is the same problem, but I lost audio from the Stored, TV, Radio and my external speakers, but still had audio for the CD/DVD. I contacted Bose (Australia) support and they talked me through a solution that worked for me.
Remove the power cord from the Media centre, then while holding down the 'All Off' and 'Vol down' buttons on the Media Centre, reconnect the power (and continue to hold the buttons down). After 10 secs, release the buttons and turn the Media centre on. Everything worked fine for me after doing this.
Full marks to Bose for the phone support. I hope this helps someone else.

No output from Bose Lifestyle 12 system


Sounds like you have a problem in the circuits, which of course would take an experience technician to find and repair. But a 1994 electronic item has pretty much reached the end of its expected life cycle (sadly, compared to older equipment which is still working great). Basically, it sounds like the power amp circuit is shutting down a few seconds after startup. Might check to make sure no speakers or cables have shorts, which could activate a protection shutdown circuit. If any of the cubes don't hiss when you turn it on, that would be the first place to look for a problem.

Lifestyle 12 receiver vs lifestyle 12 II


yes will work just fine, a slight difference in the output gain from the control baord, but in almost all other cases you wont know the difference. just make sure especially if you intend to use the old cd unit with the new bassbox that if you connect the digital source to to (say dvd player) that you initially use bose remote to turn on bass baox and set volume.

Bose Lifestyle 12 Porblems


sorry mate, looks like cd 5 is damaged goods...... wheter you damaged it or not, can't say....

however, make sure. when you try to play cd, that the cd button, nearest display was pressed as just putting in a cd isn't automatically taking control of the cd function like in other cd players. ( that is to say you have to diliberately select CD mode to play cd's)

if you fancy a load of electronic messing and visits to radio shack i am sure you can repair it if broken,
or a second hand cd unit could be obtained elsewhere on line.

Bose Lifestyle 12 System bad sound


you can buy a new cord from bose or any palce such as radio shack etc where equivalent connections can be made up to suit with no difficulty.

as for opening the bass box, i recommend not doing this unless it is absolutley the last resort.
the sound will never be the same again and you will end up with a really bad repair that looks bad and sounds bad too.

however if you are determined to do this, let me know firts and i'll tell you how to do it correctly and professionally and very simply indeed. but when youve done this will you know what your are looking at as unless you are an electronics guru with loads of time tools and equipment and hours of time to go to radio shack (again) are you really up to serviceing those not serviceable parts on circuit boards ?


by the tone of you question i think you know already its the cords , go and obtain original replacements from bose or after marklet iones from the internet or get them made to suit locally at any half decent electronics shop.

, good luck
