Re: bose wave radio/cd

Found this in the manual:

To adjust the display brightness -

The display dims automatically to medium or low brightness, as appropriate for low light room conditions. You can adjust the brightness setting of the display for both strong light and lowest light environments, but not for the medium light setting. Turn the system off before setting brightness levels.

• In a strongly lit room, hold down CD Mode and press Volume up or down to adjust the setting between 5 and 9 (it is preset to 8).
• In a barely lit room, hold down CD Mode and press Volume up or down to adjust the setting between 1 and 5 (it is preset to 2).
• If you do not want the system to dim automatically, set both levels to 5.

it may be that the display died or it not getting enough light on the screen because it has a senor that when the lights turns on it will be brighter or if this does not work call bose at 973 644 BOSE

Does the display light up for a couple of seconds? If so, try holding down the CD MODE and the on/off button at the same time. I hope this helps.

The LED display is dark

The display is dark most probably the the negative voltage which is required to turn the display is damaged. We need to trace it at the power section

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

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.
