Customer Question
Lifestyle 38 (or 48?)...

Lifestyle 38 (or 48?) DVD system hard wired to Bose surround speakers.

Technician's Assistant: What's the make/model number of your stereo? How old is it?

All worked perfectly for approx 10 years.

Technician's Assistant: What happened right before this popped up? What troubleshooting have you tried?

Today one frequency (105.9) = ABCFM sounds like its off-station.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Theater Expert to know before I connect you?

103.5 is ok. 105.9 in the car is ok

No thank you Rusty.
I eventually found a (very rare) technician who would service Bose gear.
Technician: Rusty, Engineer replied 10 months ago

That's great that you got it fixed. In the future, if you have trouble with one station but not the other, it's due to static or interference. You can unplug the radio to drain the static, or move it slightly to adjust the antenna position. If electronics are too close to the radio, that can also cause interference.
