Hello Mark, assuming you have the button on the Acoustimass pushed on and you have unplugged the media center for say 1 minute from AC and replugged in to give a system computer reset. Still not working, indicates a hard failure, but I do have some good news.

Below is link to a company that has been repairing Bose out of warranty for over 20 years and at a flat rate (your Lifestyle 28 I believe is $99 + freight) which is better than factory plus when you call get a real human on the phone. Give them a try.
