Non-working CD in Bose wave radio

I have an old Bose wave radio with a top loading CD player.  The CD player no longer works at all.  Is there an easy fix?  Can any electronics shop do it or do I have to take this to a Bose technician?

Try replacing the battery on the bottom of the system - alot of people miss it because you have it constantly plugged into the mains, but replacing this (somehow) re-sets the system, and 9 times out of 10 solves the issue.

No sound Bose wave


I took mine back to the Bose store and they gave me credit on my Wave that was about ten years old toward a new CD wave radio. I would recommend taking it to the Bose store and see what they can do for you.

Why does my bose wave radio turns itself off every twenty minutes?


I am not sure how to fix your radio; but my wave radio wasn't working and I took it into a Bose store and got an excellent trade in for a new one. I traded a wave radio without a CD player for a new Wave radio with a CD player. I would take your radio into the nearest Bose store.

Bose will replace this older top-loading CD WAVE model with a newer one for $200 plus $10 shipping. It's a fairly decent deal, considering a new system is $500. Call Bose Service at 800-637-8781

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 w/single CD player on top


My Bose Wave Radio/CD developed this problem about a year ago. I don't use the CD player much and kept the unit clean. The disc spins but, the system does not read it. Cleaning the lens with cotton did not help.

Read that Bose charges $75 to fix this problem.
