Question about Bose & Wave& Music System

1 Answer

My bose wave system will not turn on.

Model AWRC1G
This radio/CD player has barely ever been used. It was given to me. All of the sudden it doesn't work anymore. Even my electronics type husband won't touch it. I know my mother paid $500.00 for it.
Help?

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.

    Unfortunately Bose will not release their schematics or parts lists,
    effectively giving them a monopoly on repairs. According to their web
    site, www.bose.com, they will repair most Wave radios for $100 or give
    you $200 credit towards the purchase of a new set. Check your options
    before you spend the big bucks though. A new HD radio, with better
    sound and a MUCH lower price, might be a better choice than repair of a
    problem prone Bose.

Bose Wave unplugged now it wont power up


The power supply and power regulation circuits on these particular models can be finicky and fail in various assorted manners, causing a no power up condition. This is not something an untrained person should attempt to repair. If there is a possibility that liquid seeped into the unit from a spill (common) then that can present its own set of problems. We service hundreds of these units. CET Services, 117 Windsor Ave., Hurley, WI 54534 // don.miller60@outlook.com.

How do i repair the cd player on my bose awrc1g radio cd player


Hi Susan

As there are no user serviceable parts inside your unit, your best bet would be to contact Bose directly. This is likely best left to the pros, especially if the unit is still under warranty.
Here's the link to your owners manual, service centres are on page 29.

Good luck!

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.
