"Bose Lifestyle" or "Lifestyle System" repeatedly flashes on the display

The system display shows "Bose Lifestyle" when the system reboots or is connected to power. If this message appears unexpectedly, try the following:

Check the power cord connections.

Make sure the power cord is firmly seated at both ends. For more info, see Connecting to power.

If your bass module was replaced with another unit, determine if it has a dual-voltage switch.

A dual-voltage bass module will have a red switch near the power jack indicating whether it is set to operate on 115 or 230 Volts. If your bass module has a dual-voltage switch, be sure the correct voltage setting is shown. If you need to change the switch setting, unplug the bass module power cord, change the setting, then reconnect the power cord.

If your media center power supply has a voltage switch, be sure the correct voltage is selected.

On the bottom of a dual voltage power supply, there is a 230V/115V switch. If your power supply has this switch, disconnect it from the power outlet, set the switch to the voltage used in your region, then reconnect power.

Be sure the audio input cable is connected properly.

The audio input cable that connects the media center and Acoustimass module may have come loose or is connected incorrectly. For more information on system connections, see Setting up your product.

Remove any cable connected to the Bose link speaker jack on the back of the media console.

Disconnect any cable connected to the Bose link jack, which is below the audio input cable connection on the back of the media console. If the media console works properly after removing the cable, there may be an issue with the connection, the cable or the expansion setup.

Reset your system

A reset is used to correct occasional product issues. It is not something that a product should require repeatedly. For more info, see Resetting your product.

Reset your system again but leave the cable that connects the console and bass module disconnected.

In case there is an issue with the system input cable, reset your system and, when reconnecting power, don't reconnect the cable that connects the console to the bass module. If the issue does not occur with the cable disconnected, replace the cable.
