There's a line fuse inside the radio, mounted on a PC board. CAUTION: disconnect the set from power before opening the case or poking around inside. The fuse could be bad, but these sets are notorious for losing the power transformer. If the fuse is ok then you are looking at a $100 repair fee from Bose. You might want to check out the new HD radios -- better sound, MUCH lower price.

Bose radio will not turn on


You didn't mention which model of the Wave Radio you have but since you have a 9V battery it narrows it down to a couple of models. You might want to check the Q4 transistor (2SC3792) for a short on the two outide pins. With the power disconnected, measure with a multimeter the resistance between the two outside pins of the Q4 transistor. If you measure anything between 0-3 ohms it is shorted. Replace this part with a similar part or you could replace it with the new Bose recommended part - 2SD438F-MP-E but it is very hard to obtain. I have used an 2SC2655 instead and had no problems so far with the radio. This radio also came in totally dead with no display nor the radio working.

My Bose Wave CD Radio has no power. Will not turn on. dead. Checked the power cord and supply, it is good. Is there an internal fuse?


Yes - although Bose doesn't really publicize the fact, there is an internal line fuse in each Wave. Location varies by model and date of manufacture, but the fuse is easy to spot once you open the radio case.

Bose will not release their schematics or parts lists, effectively giving them a monopoly on repair of these sets. Their web site, www.bose.com, offers to repair most Wave radios for $100 or provide $200 credit towards the purchase of a new Wave. Before you spend the big bucks though, you might want to check out the new HD radios. Better sound and a MUCH lower price than Bose.

Boes wave radio


All Wave Radios have a Pigtail fuse on main board. May just be Fuse. I have seen alot of them that when dead have water damage as root cause. These radios are very reliable and water damage failure seems to be the most common. Bose has a flat rate repair service on these radios http://www.bose.com/controller?event=VIEW_STATIC_PAGE_EVENT&url=/contact/index.jsp&ck=0

Unfortunately Bose will not release their schematics or parts lists, effectively giving them a monopoly on repairs. Their web site, www.bose.com, offers to repair most Wave radios for $100 or to give owners of broken sets a $200 allowance towards the purchase of a new Wave. Before spending the big bucks though, you might want to check out the new HD radios. Better sound and a MUCH lower price.
