Our Bose Lifestyle 18 system was working perfectly thenwhen we loaded a DVD yesterday it would not play and now we can not open the DVD playere to remove the DVD. Is there anything we can do at home or do we have to take it to repair shop?
Hi, I think the DVD disc was not positioned properly (since yo udid mention that the disc did not play) adn that it has jammed the tray. Please avoid furtherusing the unit as this may damage the eject gear mechanism. Only recommendation is to bring the unit for service and they can physically rmeove the jammed disc.

I am quite sure that the indicator lights should be green. The blinking yellow likely indicates that there is no communication between the head and the audiomass. Verify that the connections are tight and then try powering off (unplugging) the system (both head and audiomass) for 30 seconds and then powering on again. That will often re-establish communications.
I also have a bose Lifestyle 48, and the same problem has happen to me where the DVD player would not open,
Unplug the unit, Wait a few seconds, after plugging the power back in, immediately hit eject so that the player does not have time to spin up and try to read the disc again
Hi sorry but what do you mean that you have lifestyle 18 system? The lifestyle 18 system consist of the media center/DVD player, the bass module, the satellite speakers and the RF remote control (aside from tons of cables)
If you have the media center/DVD only, then you require the power adaptor. you can test if the media center is functioning if the LCD display is working. you can also connect an external powered speaker or an amplifier fro mteh AUX out behind the media center.
Do note that doing so will only give you limited control of the system since you require the whole lot to make everything work properly.
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.
