    Buttons to mine are on top - no CD, just radio. Screen on the front. I appreciate your time, expertise and any suggestions you may have. Jan

    Are there any physical buttons on the system? CD tray? Is the screen on the top of the unit or on the front?

    My display is on the front. It lights up once in a while and then goes out. When it is out a cd will not play and the auxiliary will not work either, although radio goes on. Wave sound system iii.

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 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.

    To resolve this issue, try one or all of the following:




    • Make sure your Wave® music system is plugged into a working outlet
      and is able to play audio. If it’s plugged into a working outlet but
      has no display or audio, see System won’t power up



    • Reset the system by disconnecting the power cord from the wall for one minute, then plug it back in



    • Your display’s brightness may be set too low. Display
      brightness is designed to automatically adjust to changing light
      conditions, brightening when there’s lots of light, then dimming when
      the room darkens. To adjust brightness settings:




      1. Press and hold Alarm Time/Menu button on your remote until SETUP MENU appears on the display



      2. Press Tune/MP3 ">" button four times until BRIGHT HI appears on the display



      3. Press Time "–" or Time "+" button to set display brightness from 8 to 15 for high light conditions (factory setting is 12)



      4. Press Tune/MP3 ">" button once so BRIGHT LO appears on the display



      5. Press Time "–" or Time "+" button to set display brightness from 1 to 8 for low light conditions (factory setting is 4)



      6. Press the Alarm Time/Menu button to exit setup, or wait 10 seconds for setup to end automatically
