My display has not been working for years. Replaced c17 cap wich was 33uF 63 volts on lower pcb board( only one on system) . Old cap was good so this was not the problem. Replaced c16 wich was 100uF 25 volts with a 100uF 63volts. Display works, old cap read low. Both c17, and c16 are located on the lower left hand corner of the larger pcb looking from the front of the unit. Hope this helps.
Replace either c16 or C19. It is different for whichever unit you have. It is a small 33uF 25 volt capacitor (will tell you which it is c19 or c16) Replace it with a 33Uf 63volt not a 25 volt or it will just eventually go out again
Sounds too bad. But I just had the same problem with mine. I have a really good service provider for BOSE nearby though, and they fixed it at an instant. It was pretty cheap too! The condensator on the left was the fault had to be changed. It´s located down in the left corner from the front when you open it. Get the number on it, buy a new one, and change it!
Have had similar problem with mine, sent it in to get it repaired however, the problems has resurfaced. Contacted Bose and they no longer service this unit. They are however offering and upgrade by trading in your old system for a new one and discounting the price of the new one based on your trade in. Sorry.

I have had problems similar to this on many devices and it is usually a dud LED (light). You can technically de-solder the current LED and replace it but it's not a job for anybody without very good soldering skills.
Check to see if your system is still in warranty as this should be covered. Any electronics repair shop should be able to fix this for you.
I have the same problem with my Bose ... when you turn on the Lifestyle... its fulllllll blast. What the heck... we've had it for many years and it's been fine for all this time... Can you help me please. Everything works on the remote BUT the volume. OH, also... nothing works on the lifestyle unit whatsoever. no buttons functional on the unit... only the remote works... except for the volume... been this way for years. What's up...? any ideas how to fix it?
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.
No sound ? Make sure the audio input cable is connected to the music center FIXED outputs, the black connector is fully seated in the music center SYSTEM CONTROL 1 jack, and the multi-pin connector is firmly seated in the Acoustimass module jack. ? Turn the music center off for ten seconds, then on again, to reestablish communication between the music center and the speakers. ? Check the connections for any external components. Make sure to select the correct source for the desired input. ? Check the speaker connections. ? Be sure the CD is placed correctly, label-side up, in the music center, and the cover is closed. ? Increase the volume. ? Check to see if MUTE is lit in the display. Press the MUTE button on the remote to unmute the sound. ? Disconnect any headphones. ? Connect the FM and AM antennas , and last but not least. Make sure there is power going to the remote speakers or the unit will not communicate with them. Good Luck
