Question about Boston Acoustics Recepter Clock Radio

Blue LED display too bright

The blue LED on my HD radio lights up the whole bedroom wall, even on the lowest display setting.  I have taken to covering the radio front with a cardboard sheet, which of course blocks the entire time display. Can I replace the current LED with one of lesser intensity?  My husband's similar non-HD radio has a yellow display, which is fine for me.

    Thanks very much for your help.  I really appreciate it.  The problem was solved using your input, although my husband said he had to add some other slight fixit in addition.

TRY........with radio on and set on "AM", hold "Clock" button about 7 seconds and let up - bringing a setup menu. Using tuning knob,scroll to "Hardware". Press tuning knob in, bringing up contrast menu. Press tuning knob in, bringing up "contrast level". Turn tuning knob counter-clockwise to "00". Brightness, dimming level should be "170". Turn radio off to exit, then adjust "Dim" button to your liking.

Why doesnt my wave radio screen light up when the lights in theroom are on ?


That doesn't make sense does it? A few things first.... how bright are the lights in the room? Is the display of the WAVE facing the lights? The radio has a photo sensor that detects light, but for it to be effective, it has to "see" the light. It could be that you have a bad photo sensor, but I would try a few things first. 1. Make sure the light in the room is sufficiently bright. 2. Make sure the display is pointed in the direction of the light. 3. Make sure nothing is covering the photo sensor (like a piece of tape or something.... maybe a previous owner wanted to "turn off" the light". 4. If none of the above get you going, shine a flashlight at the photo sensor (a bright one). This should turn on the display. If this works (and nothing else did), that just means you ain't getting enough light to the sensor under your normal conditions and you will need to correct that underlying problem first,

Good luck!

Display not bright enough on Bose AWR1-1W clock radio


Yes...within a range. The display will automatically lighten and darken depending on the amount of light in the room. During the day or when there are bright lights in the room, the display will go to full brightness. When the lights go off or the room is otherwise darkened, the display will shift down to a lower brightness. You can make the "lower brightness" a bit brighter by holding down the CLOCK SET button and pressing the 'volume up' button.

There is no brightness at all in the display - what would the problem be?


Brightness in display is usually an adjustable feature in most devices and often times due to malfunction this function adjusts itself to the lowest level or someone mistakenly operates it to that level. All you have to do is locate the brightness button and increase the brightness.
If on the other hand this does not work then the LED light inside the unit is either burnt or the wires connecting up to it are burnt. In this situation you will need to refer it to an expert or just replace the unit as cost of fixing might be worth a new one.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

Radio display is not bright


Press and hold alarm time for about a second, then press your tune/playlist button until your bright hi or bright lo choices display, once you chose which lighting you want, do not press anything else. It will set to your last selection.

Wave Radio-dial face,display very dim.


Our Bose did the same thing after a power outage. This one doesn't have a CD button, so we tried holding down the Clock button and used the volume control and that seems to have fixed it.

Back lighting


Funny, I've got one I've just stopped using because the backlight is too bright, even set at its lowest.

Maybe we could trade ;-)

Is your's out completely, or just very dim?

Bose wave radio/cd


Found this in the manual:

To adjust the display brightness -

The display dims automatically to medium or low brightness, as appropriate for low light room conditions. You can adjust the brightness setting of the display for both strong light and lowest light environments, but not for the medium light setting. Turn the system off before setting brightness levels.

• In a strongly lit room, hold down CD Mode and press Volume up or down to adjust the setting between 5 and 9 (it is preset to 8).
• In a barely lit room, hold down CD Mode and press Volume up or down to adjust the setting between 1 and 5 (it is preset to 2).
• If you do not want the system to dim automatically, set both levels to 5.
