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.

Why did left speaker stop working?


If the speaker is not defective, a common problem with the AWR1CG and P models is liquid damaged circuitry. Where openings in the top case appear over the circuitry, spilled liquid drips down and may damage, or over time badly corrode, the circuit board traces, small through-connections, and/or electronic components. This is not a repair an untrained/experienced person should attempt. We service many of these liquid damaged units with good success rate.

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!

My face plate is frozen. The cd player works but nothing else what could be the problem.


First thing that I would try is to reset the radio. To do this, you would want to press the reset button (located behind the faceplate) using a bent paperclip or a ball-point pen. If this type of reset (soft reset) doesn't work, then you want to disconnect constant power from the radio (hard reset). This can be done by removing the power fuse for the radio or disconnecting the negative terminal of the car battery for about 15 seconds.
Start with those two methods. Beyond that, you may have a bad faceplate and/or a bad unit and it would need to be sent to Pioneer Electronics or an electronics repair technician. For repair estimates, I recommend visiting an authorized Pioneer retailer in your area.

2002 Ford Explorer CD player error


First get a CD Lens Cleaner and try it; if not, disconnect the negative lead from your car battery for about 10 min. BUT! Unless you have the radio code make sure you car radio doesn’t have a anti-theft system; if after this few steps still nothing you have to send it to an electronics repair shop (the CD Lens is bad).
