    Bose indicated (Australia) That they will only sell to service centre and they can format etc..so Im stuck the last price I got was for $443 installed which considering the price of the Hard Drive is ridiculous..
    Any other thought s ??

Hi anthony540,

Unfortunately, the 802 and 801 errors mean irreversible HDD damage. This can happen to any hard disc drive, and there's no way to predict it and no way to fix it from home. Even if you try to replace the hard drive it will not work and will report the same errors since more actions are needed. Obviously you could not format or initialize it with the 'Bose' special stuff. I would highly recommend that you contact Bose because they can repair it for $165 and give a new 1 year warranty. Their technical support number in Australia is 1 800 061 046.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

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.

Bose lifestyle fault code 802 hi there- i have a bose lifestyle 48 and on display it reads format unsupported when i try to listen to cd's gut not on dvd's - in addition i am unable to store music into the...


Unfortunately, an 802 error is bad. That means hard drive (HDD) failure. This can happen to any hard disc drive, and there's no way to predict it and no way to fix it from home.
If you even try to troubleshoot it (reset etc), you could loose more data (music you've already stored to the system). If you try to access 'stored' music- the error will continue. Also, every time you turn the system off, it checks your HDD, and will probably cause the 802 or 801 errors to display again.
The "Format Unsupported" message may be related, but usually temporary. The 802 (and also 801) errors mean irreversible HDD damage so it doesn't matter.
Call Bose tech support immediately.. They can repair it for $165 and give a new 1 year warranty. And if it's already under warranty they will repair for free. In either case they will replace your HDD with a new one, and transfer any salvaged music files from your existing drive to the new drive.

Call Bose. It needs a new hard drive. There's a charge if it's out of warrantee, but it is reasonable. Seems like this is a common problem!

Bose Lifestyle 48 Error code 801


We had this problem. I called Bose, and they reported that the 801 error is a hard drive problem. The unit started squealing while I was on the phone to support, and the guy heard it. Said the hard drive was failing.

$200 to ship the unit to Bose to replace the drive. Wish they had a secret warantee for what seems like a common problem.
