See if the problem is connected with the cord, then replace the cord.

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.

I can't get any power to the unit


Hi,
Tay to contact the nearest bose authorised servicing center because the spares of Bose wave radio is difficult to get out side. Also it uses a mutilayer circuit boar with SMD components. Only A well trained service tech will be able to rectify the fault.

My bose wave radio wont turn on. It has no power


I have the exact same AWR1-1W model for repair last week. I am assuming you have a meter and you also have soldering skills here.
You might want to check the Q4 transistor (2SC3792) for a short on the two outide pins. With the power disconnected, measure with a multimeter the resistance between the two outside pins of the Q4 transistor. If you measure anything between 0-3 ohms it is shorted. Replace this part with a similar part or you could replace it with the new Bose recommended part - 2SD438F-MP-E but it is very hard to obtain. I have used an 2SC2655 instead and had no problems so far with the radio. This radio also came in totally dead with no display nor the radio working.

You didn't mention which model of the Wave Radio you have but since you have a 9V battery it narrows it down to a couple of models.

I have a bose awrc1p radio display light changes


This could be the battery causing the display to act strangely. If the radio still works audio-wise, the following should fix the display: The older model wave radios have either a 9v or 3 AA batteries (accessible from the bottom). Remove any battery, and reset the system by unplugging the power cord for about 40 seconds. Plug it back in without the battery attached. If the problem goes away- replace the battery or batteries. (which is only there to hold the clock time, presets etc when not plugged in) BTW- you'll have to set the clock, alarm, presets etc after this procedure. If the problem doesn't go away, call Bose. I think they can repair this for $99 and/or offer a new one as a trade-in discounted.

Bose wave radio won't turn on


Unfortunately Bose will not release their schematics or parts lists, effectively giving them a monpoly on repair of these units. Their web site, www.bose.com, offers to repair most Wave radios for $100 or to provide a $200 allowance towards purchase of a new Wave. Before you spend the big bucks on theis trouble-prone product though, you might want to check out the new HD radios -- better sound and MUCH lower prices than Bose.
