Question about Bose Wave Radio

1 Answer

Bose Wave W/CD

We had a power surge that knocked out my wave radio, and the repair shop where I took it said it was beyond repair/that it was fried. My question is, can it be rebuilt or refurbishied at a less expense than a new one?

    After a 4 day power outage when power was restored it zapped my wave radio. I checked the fuse and it is OK but the unit seems totally dead. Is it a repairable unit or do I have to buy a new one.

Check the service/repair guide at www.bose.com. They will repair most models for $100 - or give you a $200 credit towards a new model. Before you spend the big though, you might want to check out the new HD radios -- better sound, MUCH lower price.

No sound Bose wave


I took mine back to the Bose store and they gave me credit on my Wave that was about ten years old toward a new CD wave radio. I would recommend taking it to the Bose store and see what they can do for you.

Why does my bose wave radio turns itself off every twenty minutes?


I am not sure how to fix your radio; but my wave radio wasn't working and I took it into a Bose store and got an excellent trade in for a new one. I traded a wave radio without a CD player for a new Wave radio with a CD player. I would take your radio into the nearest Bose store.

Following a direct lightning strike to our pole transformer, transformer blown ,, replaced ,, several electronics not working including our Bose Wave Radio (no CD) ... Where can we find repair and how much...


Bose does not release their schematic diagrams or parts lists, so factory maintenance is about the only way to go. You can start the process by visiting www.Bose.com, but be ready for some sticker shock. Before you do anything though, every Bose has a line fuse inside the case. The location varies by model and date of manufacture, but if you open the case it will be simple to locate. Check it, and replace it if necessary. The fuse is there to safeguard electronics against power surges, so it is your likely culprit.

Think Power surge blew out radio. Can it be fixed?


The fix may be as simple as replacing a fuse. Location varies by model, but each has an internal fuse on one of its circuit boards. SAFETY NOTE: It may seem obvious, but be sure to disconnect power from the set before you open the case.

If the fuse is not the problem, you will need to seek professional repair. Unfortunately, Bose does not release their parts lists or schematics, effectively creating a monopoly for parts and repairs. In fact, their web site says that the Bose factory is the only option for service or repair. They used to list a flat rate repair charge on the web site, but removed it - probably because it scared too many people. Their troubleshooting guide (below) might help, but it's very simplistic.

Before you invest in expensive factory repair on one of these trouble prone sets, you might want to investigate the new HD radios -- better sound at a MUCH lower price.

Non-working CD in Bose wave radio


Try replacing the battery on the bottom of the system - alot of people miss it because you have it constantly plugged into the mains, but replacing this (somehow) re-sets the system, and 9 times out of 10 solves the issue.
