Question about Bose Wave Radio

1 Answer

I have a problem with time display on my Bose CD/Clock Radio.

When the radio is on, either because I turned it on or am using the sleep timer, the display stays fixed on the radio station setting. This happens whether I use the controls on the actual radio or the remote control. This problem began after a recent power outage. Prior to this, the radio station setting would display briefly when selected, then revert to showing the time. I want to be able to tell what time it is when the radio is playing. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

I found the answer on the Bose website in the manual for the radio. While the radio is on, hold down Alarm Setup and preset 1 at the same time. That will set it so the clock displays. If you do the same thing but hold down preset button 2, that will display the radio info all the time.

My stereo keeps turning off when I listen to a station 101.5 in New Jersey


The only thing that can be is that you have set a timer "sleep" function for that station. I have looked at the manual and it states you can programme a sleep setting for a radio station.
The instructions are on page 12. But I have extracted them below:

1 Press the ON/STAND-BY button to turn the power on.

2 Press and hold the CLOCK/TIMER button.

3 Within 10 seconds, press the or button

to select "ONCE" or "DAILY", and press the MEMORY

button. Set the clock to the correct time if "ONCE" or

"DAILY" does not appear.

4 Within 10 seconds, press the or button to select

"ONCE SET" or "DAILY SET", and press the MEMORY

button.

5 To adjust the hour, press the or button and then

press the MEMORY button.

6 To adjust the minutes, press the or button and

then press the MEMORY button.

7 Set the time to fi nish as in steps 5 and 6 above.

8 To select the timer playback source (CD, TUNER, USB,

iPhone/iPod, TAPE or AUDIO IN), press the or

button. Press the MEMORY button.

When you select the tuner, select a station by pressing

the or button, and then press the MEMORY

button. If a station has not been programmed, "NO

PRESET" will be displayed and timer setting will be

canceled.

9 Adjust the volume using the VOLUME control, and then

press the MEMORY button. Do not turn the volume up

too high.

10 Press the ON/STAND-BY button to enter the power

stand-by mode. The "TIMER" indicator lights up and

the unit is ready for timer playback.


11 When the preset time is reached, playback will start.





The volume will increase gradually until it reaches the

preset volume. The "?" or "DAILY" indicator will blink

during timer playback.

12 When the timer end time is reached, the system will

enter the power stand-by mode automatically.

Once timer:

The timer will be canceled.

Daily timer:

The timer operates at the same time every day. It

will continue until the daily timer setting is canceled.
Cancel the daily timer when it is not in use.

Why is my Bose radio is too dim?


The Bose Wave Radio has two brightness levels: Bright Hi (with a range of 8-15, and default of 10) and Bright Lo (1-8, default 4). The radio automatically goes from Hi to Lo when a room is darkened so the display doesn't interfere with sleep.
On recent models you can reset the defaults to make the display brighter or dimmer in both Hi and Lo levels.
1. Press and hold the Alarm Setup (Menu) button on your remote until -setup menu- appears in the display.
2. Then press the Tune/MP3 button until Bright Hi- appears. Use the Time - or Time + buttons to change the settings.
3. Go to Bright Lo- and adjust that setting too if necessary.
4. Press Alarm Setup (Menu) again to exit setup, or simply wait 10 seconds.
You're done! Note that if you set both Hi and Lo to 8, the brightness will stay the same all day and night.

My Grundig s350 radio powers off as if it is on some sort of timer. I cannot figure out why or how to stop it.


The ON button is also a SLEEP timer. The timer can be set to 90 minutes, 75, and son on. The shortest time period is about 1 minute. Press the ON/SLEEP button several times. After each press read the number displayed. As you push the button again you will cycle through all available timer settings. Choose one that its long enough for you.
However if you press the ON/Sleep button for a few seconds the radio will play continusously until you turn it off.
Just play with the RED button a few times to get an idea how long to press to make the radio play continuously.

My radio powers off every few minutes. Needs to be turned back on by the on-off switch. How can I stop it from turning off automaticly?


When you press the Power/Sleep button the radio turns on and displays a number 90, or some other numbers. This is the play time that the radio will stay on then turns itself off. It could be that yours is configured with a sleep timer set to 01 minute, 10 or 15. You need to set the timer for a longer period. Thus we turn it on by pressing the Power/Sleep button, read the timer length then press again. Keep making short presses: The timer will cycle through all preset sleep timer durations. Select the length you want.

Your sleep timer is on. Hit menu, and poke through that and find the sleep timer settings. Sleep timer is something that turns the TV off after an amount of time that your do not interact with it.

It keeps turning itself off! How do I keep it going 24/7?


Well that seems like a waste of energy.
Anyway that is your problem.
The Power/Sleep button has a dual function: Power ON/OFF and Sleep.
A short press will turn the timer on and you will see numbers like 90, 75, 60,...10, 01. pPressing again will cycle to the next sleep duration. If your radio has a short duration timer it will seem that it is turning itself off.

To activate a normal Power up, your first press should last longer (I cannot tell you how long, you will have to try it on your own.) You should not see the timer durations, just the frequency of the station its was last tuned to. In addition, no loudspeaker should be displayed at the lower right corner.
