    The display is DEAD....cannot see enough to change the Language to English.
    Which is why I tried to change the display via the menu in the first place....low level brightness. Now black.
    Thanks for all the help!

    Boom language changed?

    install Logitech Media Server and you will be able to change the language
    and display brightness settings as well as other settings and features not
    available with just the Boom running alone.

    Even if you don't have a music library, LMS adds many features not
    available without it like transcoding which allows you to play streams not
    supported by your Boom.

    Also there are radio stations I want to listen to which aren't in the stand
    alone Boom.

    With LMS running, I can put them in a separate My Favorites which is
    associated with my LMS. Without LMS, several of these streams wouldn't
    work.

    It's FREE, you know.

    If your worried about the costs of running your computer, go buy a micro
    PC. Mine is made by CompuLab and draws 7 watts maximum and has a 1TB hard
    drive (only get the 5000 rpm type or SSD because of power consumption
    limits.)

    Here's the download: http://downloads.slimdevices.com/nightly/?ver=7.9

    The button for SETTINGS is on the lower bottom right. It has multiple
    pages and there are drop down menus for sub menus.

    Get it installed and fix your problem!

    Regards,

    I have already updated the brightness settings in the MYSB.com but unfortunately the display has deteriorated to the point where even with a highest brightness setting nothing is visible.

    Good to know about LMS though!

    Went ahead and installed LMS on my Windows 7 PC.

    Seems to work to control the Boom, but under Server Settings I have not found a way to change the "language".
    Looking at "Player" in the Server settings but have gone thru the various items...nothing?

    Even with the "Display" in the server settings set brightness, but still nothing showing on the display on the Boom. UGH
