I unplug all appliances while away for more than a few days. When I returned and plugged in the Bose, a time (incorrect, of course) displayed but the remote isn't effective in changing the time. I inserted a disk, it will play, but because the remote isn't working, I'm not able to power on/off, stop/eject, or anything. What do I do?

You can buy an AC line conditioner, they range from cheap and useless to expensive and exotic, which is able to filter interference coming over the power lines. Simply plug that into the wall, and your radio into the filter, and there should be an improvement.
You can also try plugging the radio into a different outlet, making sure the outlets are wired properly, and try moving the radio to a new location further away from the source(s) of interference.

Check the pins on the cable that's plugged into "BoseLink" on the Wave Music System. If even 1 pin is bent, this could happen. If that looks fine, try another reset, but keep the power unplugged for at least 30+ seconds. If this fails, call Bose tech support at 800-367-4008.
If this is under warranty, they will fix this or replace it for free, otherwise it will be about $75 to fix.
I would start to check from the audio amplifier ICs section. Most probably the Audio Amplifier IC faulty but there are many version of Bose Wave radio and therefore couple of Audio amplifier ICs have been used namely TDA 7374, TDA 7375 and more.
This could be the battery causing the display to act strangely. If the radio still works audio-wise, the following should fix the display:
The older model wave radios have either a 9v or 3 AA batteries (accessible from the bottom). Remove any battery, and reset the system by unplugging the power cord for about 40 seconds. Plug it back in without the battery attached.
If the problem goes away- replace the battery or batteries. (which is only there to hold the clock time, presets etc when not plugged in)
BTW- you'll have to set the clock, alarm, presets etc after this procedure.
If the problem doesn't go away, call Bose. I think they can repair this for $99 and/or offer a new one as a trade-in discounted.
Reset the radio (it has a processor) by just unplugging the power cord for about 30+ seconds and plugging it back in.
If this doesn't solve the problem, try replacing the remote battery (CR2032- can be found almost everywhere batteries are sold)
If all else fails, call Bose tech support.
The cable you connected has nothing to do with this.
Unplug and plug back in. It should go through a automatic process, ejecting any discs that are inside. If all you hear is a mechanical noise, try this again only with the disc trays facing the ceiling.
