    All functions worked fine but when I unplugged it and plugged it in again there was no power. No smoke no smell nothing to indicate a short. Bad cord?
    Reset button (if there is one) ? It's about 4 years old.

A CD is stuck in my bose system How do I get it out?


From an other web site

If you have a cd or two stuck in your Bose wave radio, here's how to remove it and save yourself $99. This procedure is for the radio (model AWRCC1 or similar) with a single front loading cd slot.

PART I
1. First unplug the power, wait a minute, and then replug power, watching the front display.
2. The display will read "Ejecting". If the cd ejects, then you're done and can skip Part II. If it doesn't eject and/or it displays "Disk error" then you'll need to do the Part II steps.

PART II
1. Unplug the power cord.
2. Turn the radio upside down with the front facing you.
3. Remove the 5 screws from the bottom plate.
4. Hinge the front of the bottom plate up no more than 2". Don't overdo this or you'll damage various ribbon cables inside. Use extra hands or a prop to keep it open this amount.
5. Reach inside and tilt-up the front of cd player's metal housing just enough to access the rims of the cd(s) within the space created in step 4.
6. Pinch the rim(s) of the cd(s) and gently pull it/them out.
7. Reverse these steps to reassemble your radio.

Enjoy your cd player again!

One speaker doesn't work on my bose wave radio/cd?


I can only get one speaker to work continuously. The other works intermittently. If I move the power cord a bit, I can sometimes to get the one "bad" speaker to work. When it's working, the speaker sounds fine. This is driving me crazy. The power cord is new, so I think it has something to do with the power supply. The unit is a '95 Bose Acoustic Wave CD-2000.

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.

My Bose wave radio with aux. for attaching to a CD player stopped working. I tried plugging it different places. It is an old system.


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 radio/cd player. Power reduction.


Unfortunately, Bose does not release their parts lists or schematics, effectively creating a monopoly for parts and repairs. In fact, their web site says that the Bose factory is the only option for service or repair. They used to list a flat rate repair charge on the web site, but removed it - probably because it scared too many people. Their troubleshooting guide (below) might help, but it's very simplistic.

Before you invest in expensive factory repair on one of these trouble prone sets, you might want to investigate the new HD radios -- better sound at a MUCH lower price.

Bose wave radio/cd often cd spins but does not play, sometines will correct if I turn unit off and on. HELP tHANKS


I've repaired about 10 type Bose AWRC3x (the radio/cd model with lift up lid and top controls). If the cd won't play or skips, try cleaning the lens VERY carefully with a cotton bud with some isopropyl alcohol. Let it dry then try again. This will help in about 1/3 of cases.

After that, a new laser unit is needed. They cost around 15 pounds,30 dollars, (Type SFP100s with 13 pin connector made by Sanyo). You need to have some electronics experience to take the case to bits to get the laser deck out, change the cd laser and reassemble. Basically, DISCONNECT THE POWER! Remove the 3 screws on top, turn over and carefully prise the front of the base away from the top cover with a table knife or similar. Lift off the top cover - be careful with the lid ribbon! The deck can be disconnected from its ribbon cable and wired connector very carefully. Take the deck to bits and fit the new laser head (take photos if you think it will help). Remember to unsolder the shorting 'blob' of solder which protects the new laser from static till its fitted.

On the bright side, there is no tracking etc to set up, that's all automatic so usually they work like new with a new laser fitted. I have to say this is the weakest feature on the Bose CD radio, the actual electronics rarely gives trouble.

Hope this helps Steve O'Donnell

No sound


PLUG IN YOUR HEAD PHONES IN - do you get sound ? If you do Get sound from your headphones it could be that your speakers blown and would recommend Bose to take a look if still under worrentee. if NOT You could still get it covered by domestic general find them at this link https://www.domgen.com otherwise if you dont want to pay for a repair take a look yourself - get a screw driver open up the case as best as you can look at the speakers, you may well find that you have a dry joint or a cable could have come disconnected if so solder it back on and you've FIXED IT! hope this helps. if it does OR IT DON'T, please leave feedback Anyway cheers raverbaby
