It sounds like the power button has failed. either call Bose to get a RA# and the nearest service center, or find an adventurous electronics tech in your area to replace the switch

I have a rennai energysaver 556ftr heater, and the filter and on light keeps flashing red, i've taken out the filter and cleaned it, but still the lights are flashing. what's wrong?

If you removed the filter to clean it, while the unit was ON, that may be the problem. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF and unplug the unit from wall outlet. Leave unplugged for 15 minutes. Remove and replace the filter. After 15 minutes has elapsed, plug the unit into the wall outlet and turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. The unit should have reset itself and reverted back to the original factory default settings. In which case, you can change the settings to what you desire.

Just remember to always turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF, when removing the filter to clean and replace it.

Hope this helped you solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

When I plug my Bose clock radio into one outlet, I get nothing but static. When I plug it into a nearby outlet (with out really moving the cord), I get perfect reception. The problem is the outlet where...

The Wave Radio uses the AC power cord as an antenna. Perhaps the two outlets are wired differently regarding ground and hot.

An interesting article...

As the man says in the article thecircuit tester like this...

... can be found at many Dollar Stores for cheap.

My wii won't turn on and I tried unplugging and disconnecting all the cords and it still won't work...any suggestions???

First verify the outlet on wall you are plugging the Wii into works.
Unplug the power cord from Wii AND the wall to allow proper discharge of the power unit. If you do not unplug from wall outlet to then the power unit will not discharge.
It could take up to 15-30 minutes sometimes.

Bose wave radio won't turn on; power on but clock won't even work

Worked on a bunch of these. If the clock does not work you have no power to the circuits. If the wall receptacle has power then you probably have a blown fuse. If you replace it make sure it is the exact same value. If it blows when you turn it on you probably have bigger problems. If you are not a tech or familiar with electronics you will probably need to have someone fix your unit.


Thanks for using FixYa

First cd works fine but bose won't shift to the other 3 CD's...keeps saying "error" . I have tried unplugging the AC cord and then plugging it in again...worked for awhile but now doesn't work...

Check the pins on the cable that's plugged into "BoseLink" on the Wave Music System. If even 1 pin is bent, this could happen. If that looks fine, try another reset, but keep the power unplugged for at least 30+ seconds. If this fails, call Bose tech support at 800-367-4008. If this is under warranty, they will fix this or replace it for free, otherwise it will be about $75 to fix.
