Left side speaker and bass not working

Hi all,

Does anyone know why a very old AWRC-1W might have lost power to the right speaker and now it sounds like all the bass is gone? I opened the unit and checked the connections and it all looks good but didn't know if there was any other troubleshooting I could do with a meter?

Thanks for any help!

Frank

    Sorry this unit does not have bass boost switch/button. I have unplugged all the internal connections and re-plugged them back in but still not luck... Any other suggestions would be grateful.

    Thanks,
    Frank

I have a seemingly identical problem that started today. Did you ever find a solution?

Thanks,

Do you have a bass-boost switch on your unit? If so check that, go easy,but you can try to be a bit rough moving it back and forth up and down or so. If that wont work you can always try walling it!

My 10 year old Bose wave radio quit working.


There's a line fuse inside the radio, mounted on a PC board. CAUTION: disconnect the set from power before opening the case or poking around inside. The fuse could be bad, but these sets are notorious for losing the power transformer. If the fuse is ok then you are looking at a $100 repair fee from Bose. You might want to check out the new HD radios -- better sound, MUCH lower price.

The Bose engineers in their "infinite" wisdom developed a $300 radio with no, that is NO, tone control. This means the only way to tune bass response is to reposition the Wave radio itself. If you put it in a corner of a room, it will produce the most bass. If it is only against one wall, not so much bass. To reduce bass response to a minimum, you would have to suspend the device from a wire in the middle of the room. Good luck. I would never buy a radio without a tone control; I literally inherited by Bose Wave Radio and use external speakers which do have tone controls.

Replace fuse Bose Wave Radio


For the AWR1-1W turn it over and there are 4 screws that you must remove. When your looking at the circuit board the fuse is just below the power supply and back of radio. If the radio makes a ‘POP’ sound when you unplug it may not be the fuse as power is getting past the fuse. I have the same trouble with mine. I called BOSE Tech and he said if it makes that ‘POP’ sound after unplugging it is not fuse or power supply. They will not even allow me to send it in for repairs as the radio is over 15 years old and considered unserviceable.

Maybe someone else can give us a quick fix.

Bose AWR1-1W older version, not Series III, no power, pop when unplugged.


I've got a simillar problem... will be looking into it this weekend. U402 is supposed to be the 5Volt regulator.
The input to U402 is U401 its a 12Volt regulator.
You should check both...

No power up


Considering that power is present, popping sound is caused by a faulty Q401, 5V supply for display.

Good Luck.
