    Good Afternoon:



    My Bose radio/cd is not working! When I turn it on, it seems like the alarm is stuck - it makes the alarm sound and is very loud. The radio will not come on and the CD feature will not work. What can I do to fix this? I have unplugged it and replugged, this does not seem to help.

Considering that power is present and all fuse are OK, check R406 for open. Check for Q401 also, the 5V supply to display.
Hope this will help.

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.

Bose Wave Radio/CD bad static and occasional "pop"


Hi, When you change the Aux turn the radio off. Then turn it back on. As for the static move the radio to another plug or to a different room. If you have floresecent lighting it may do that too.
The cord acts like an antenna so don't bundle the cord. Good luck.

I have the same issue with the same model. I found an open primary winding in the large transformer inside the unit. Now the problem is finding somewhere to buy the transformer...

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.

I have a Bose Wave radio AWRC-1g. The CD player


Yes you have a defective laser assembly. The 139 is a great price as buying the laser lens alone will cost you around 70 .Bose will also upgrade with any new software and will also provide you with a 1 yr warrenty.

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.

Non-working CD in Bose wave radio


Try replacing the battery on the bottom of the system - alot of people miss it because you have it constantly plugged into the mains, but replacing this (somehow) re-sets the system, and 9 times out of 10 solves the issue.
