Question about Bose Audio Players & Recorders
We have a surround system throughout the house and now cannot get the system to work in the rest of the house only in the main living area where the TV is located.
It is a very strange case that you have.
I think that bose is correct, there is definetly an electromagnetic interference with the system, but the strabge part is that panasonic plasma tvs are not supposed to emit such EMI and they should be shielded.
one advice is that to verify this try putting on the tv, and bring a portable radio close to it and see is there is a change in the sound, if there is one, then definetly your tv is emitting EM fields. this could be due to a factory defect in the tv, have it checked by the retailer where you got your tv.
a second solution is to place the receiver of the bose system further away from the tv and try using both of them.

I posted the message as Tet Tet before. I can now tell you that I have resolved the problem. The issue is with the Panasonic 50Inch TV. Some people reported the same problem but only when the TV was up on the wall. It turns out that the problem lies with the metal discs which screw on at the back of the TV to enable you to hand the TV on the wall bracket. In my case I had excessive interference caused at the back of the TV (could be the fan). When I put the TV on the wall bracket the metal discs would be in contact with the wall bracket which in turn was acting as an antenna causing the iterference to the bose remote which operates at a frequency of 27.45MHz. You can solve the issue by adding some insulating tape around all the metal discs avoiding them to make contact with the wall bracket. If that fails Panasonic will swap your TV for another one like they did with me. I can now enjoy my Bose System with the 50 inch Panasonic TV. It took me three months but managed to get a solution. I hope this helps. For further info you can mail me at [email protected]. These discs should be made of metal because they are perforating the metal screen at the back of the TV. Panasonic please change this design.

Just got off phone with Bose support with this very problem during install of a VS-2 software updtae to an older LS48 system. (Bose support personnel were very helpful on phone - and walked me through procedure to solve). I presume you unplugged and replugged power supply with no resolution. In that case, unplug power supply, wait 30 seconds and while holding down the "open/close button" and the "store" button (on media center) plug the power supply back in. Continue holding until the "Bose Lifestyle" message disappears. I presume this puts the system into a diagnostic mode, as the next steps in my case were to press and hold the "erase" button while scrolling through a menu of options using the "volume up" button. I believe it was the third "volume up" press that brought me to "FLASH" on the system screen. At that point I was told to release the "erase" button and press the enter button. The system rebooted and my VS-2 install went smoothly after that.
I'd recomend calling Bose support (800-905-2138) since your lockup occured during a CD load vs a software update (just to be on the safe side) - I was talking to a live tech support person in less than 15 seconds... a pleasant surprise.

turn off the accoustimas, unplug the power code from the accoustimas and the media center and leave it for 15 sec. Then, plug the power code onto the accoustimas and turn it on. then plug the power code of the media center on. Turn media center on.
hope this helps

Hi, have you tried going to the system settings menu adn program your 3rd party products htrough there? You may try varied IR code settings for your electronics from there and one of those codes should work atleast for your system. There may be some codes you will get to use but does not have all the funcitons so you need to be patient to try them all.
As per the Blue-Ray DVD, the remote code might still not be embedded on the IR controller chip that is installed in your Lifesytle (after you have tried all the codes and still none works). Bose does release regular firmware updates via their user mailer (if you have registered your product online) or you may passby any of the Bose service center and request them to provide you with the update disc specific to your system version (look underneath the DVD player and the bass module they should indicate AV-- and PS-- models).
Glad to be of service...
