Can only get black and white images when playing DVD's

I have a Bose 3·2·1? GS DVD home entertainment system and when playing dvd's can only get black and white pictures. I also have my sky (cable) tv set up with the system. I have tried doing what the troubleshooting in the manual suggests (to check the video connectors are solidly in place) anyone have any other ideas?

Check your settings - video format. It should be NTSC for USA standard. If it is set to European (PAL) it will be in black & white. Hope this helps.

I have the same problem with my dvd player soon as you turn it on the screen to the machine is in black and white on the tv its not the dvd its something to do with the tv's ability to switch over to color try connecting it to a dvd recorder that solves the problem most the time the problem is not always the menu stting s inside the machine its self some machines dont have a settings feature to make it in color its most likely something very easy to do the way i mentioned above should help you a little

Go to the menu system and change your system from NTSC to PAL, or vice versa. Instructions for this are on p.39 of the manual.

The Lifestyle 38 has no HDMI output. It all depends on what inputs your TV has, which cable set up would be the best for you. Assuming that your TV has an SVideo input, you indeed can use the SVideo output of the Bose system, to get the DVD picture on your TV. However you will need to connect the audio output of the TV to the TV input of the LS 38 to get the TV sound to play over your LS 38. In case you don't have an SVideo connection on your TV, you can use the composite output of the Bose system and connect it to the video input of your TV (yellow in and outputs)

When playing a dvd it black and white no color


what output connection are you using? (svideo can cause this if it's not properly supported on both devices)
What format is the video stream NTFS or PAL? some devices don't like one or the other format. This issue could be linked to your dvd player or your TV so please investigate what I have suggested and post back here if you have no luck :O)

Bose lifestyles v28 plays dvds in black and white


Check your video output settings in the menu. If you are using a composite video output and do not have the system sut up for it, you will get a B&W picture. Check your menu settings.

Hello, i have a vizio flat screen tv and i don't know the correct places to connect the cables of my Bose Lifestyle 48 Series IV DVD Home Entertainment System. Please help me


Does the Bose have HDMI out? Does the tv have an HDMI socket?
If it does just connect them both together. All inputs i.e. cd, ps3 dvd etc will go into the Bose.

Can someone tell me how the picture is when playing a dvd to a hdry set. I heard it's not very good. Thanks John


Did you mean : playing a normal dvd on a HD tv? ....It will be fine. Check your dvd menu to see if it can upscale. If your using a huge tv you will notice some grain...but hopefully your not sat 2ft away!

Pretty much the same problem


I have the same system. I have a Lifestyle and a Sony TV with a Samsung Blueray player. I also have an X-box 360, plus my pc with all my CDs (I-tunes) plays through my bose. Do this:

1. Use the optical cable for the blueray player to the Bose (AUX).
2. Use a digital audio cable from the cable box (either black or orange output) to the Bose CBL-SAT digital input. (it's a single audio cable)
3. For my PC, I'm using a digital cable from the pc to the Bose. I'm using the TV output because it's empty.
4. For my x-box (which I'm not too happy about) I'm using regular red-white audio cables from Bose TV input directly to the TV audio out. (You can play all of the above through this channel, but don't).

I figured the most important high quality sound should come from the blueray player and from watching regular cable tv. For picture, you should be using all HDMI connections.

Hope this helps.
