I traced the portion of the circuit involving the fuse and failed resistor. Fixed the problem by replacing R886 with a 1.2K, 1/2 W resistor, a zener diode that had heated the circuit board and tested bad with a 15 volt, 1 watt zener and replaced the blown axial lead 1.5 amp fuse. I also noted a jumper missing that would connect the common of the circuit with the failure to the main ground of the rest of the board. I installed the "missing" jumper thinking that this was probably the root cause of the problem.
With these repairs the RS2654 has worked fine for many hours.

Never ever replace a fuse with a bigger one, you are lucky the unit did not blow up and statrt a fire. When a fuse blows there is usually a reason.There is a short in the main power supply or the output stage. You will need to test for shorts on the main transformer, B+ rectifiers and the main filter capacitors. If that does not show any shorts, you will need to test the audio output circuits for shorts on the audio output IC's. Good Luck

    You will need to use a multimeter, if you do not have one or if you do not know how to use one, you should play it safe and get this unit looked at by a pro, there are no user replaceable parts inside these units.

Our Bose Wave music system has stopped working - it is 5 years old - suspect a power supply problem - other than the three screws - how does one remove the cover without breaking it?

Our bose wave system stopped working also. The remote wouldn't work, it wouldn't turn off nothing. So finally we re-set it by clicking the button on the power strip it was plugged into.
It then worked! we had a power glitch a few weeks ago and think that had something to do with it. I hope this helped, and helps others!

Tuner does not work

If you're trying to listen to FM, and are indoors, and your walls are fairly thick, or brick and mortar, chances are you're not getting a strong enough signal.
Modern minisystems like yours come without an external antenna, and use their power cords in lieu of one. Try extending the cord, not coiling it, for better reception.
Other than that, your system may have had a spontaneous problem to its FM tuning module, though not likely.
Good luck!

RCA RS2654

There were 2 problems that I found with my daughter's rs2654, which wouldn't open. The first is that a 2.2 ohm resistor opened up near the IC that drives the motor that opens the drawer, so no voltage to the moter. The second was that the grease in the gears was so stiff that the motor barely turned the larger pulley. Changing the resistor and cleaning up and regreasing the gears fixed it.

Fuses blow

In addition to what i said in the live chat about the transformer, here is a link to the manual for the RS2653 which seems very similar; or this link to contact RCA directly; Hope this helps, not much in the manual of any use for this problem :)
