Question about Bose Wave Radio

120v Bose Wave Radio/CD player plugged into 240V outlet

My wife plugged her 120V Bose Wave Radio/CD directly into a 240V outlet in Ireland instead of into the step down transformer. Is there an inline fuse to protect the transformer inside the Bose? If not, any idea of the likely extent of the damage?

    I have the same problem, but in China. If it is a fuse, is there a manual or other documentation that I can access in order to determine how and with what to replace it? Thanks.

There is a fuse you can check. Also a rectifier bridge, a 3 terminal regulator IC (18V in, and 10V out) as well as a small transistor Q1 which often shorts. Easy and cheap fixes, or I would offer to buy your non-working model Bose if you decide to sell it.

There seem to be no power. Nothing is on. I change the 9 Volt battery and still nothing is on. No radio, No clock. For a Bose clock radio. David Fong


Hi,
Sorry for the late answer to your solution. There was some problem with my account in fixya.
I was not able to post any solution from yesterday as the new site is in development stage as told by the customer care of fixya.

I seen your question. You have to check the power cord of your bose wave radio first. Is there is any loose contact at its socket at the both ends. If its seems ok, Then you have to check the inline fuse inside the wave radio. For that you have to open the wave radio. I am giving you this solution assuming that you are aware of reparing electronic items. If you have some knowledge on fixing electronic items then you can fix it yourself.

Before removing the wave radio remove the power cord from the sockets. There will be 6 screws at the bottom of your wave radio in some models its 8 numbers. After removing the screws turn the radio and pull out the top cover. You can see the inline fuse near the AC input socket where you connect the power cord. Using a multimeter test the contnuity of the fuse. it should show zero ohms. if no, then the fuse is faulty remove the fuse and replace with a new one and power up the radio and check

If there is no other fault the wave radio will work ok. If the fuse blows again then the transformer of your wave radio is faulty. The primary winding of the transformer have some short inside. As it is a custom design the C core transformers are only available through bose service centers. If they are willing to supply the transformers to customers then buy it from them and replace yourself. If not, then you have to give the radio to them to be repeired. If you need any more assistance feel free to conatct me through fixya.The fuse will look like one in the picture.

Bose does not release their schematic diagrams or parts lists, so factory maintenance is about the only way to go. You can start the process by visiting www.Bose.com, but be ready for some sticker shock. Before you do anything though, every Bose has a line fuse inside the case. The location varies by model and date of manufacture, but if you open the case it will be simple to locate. Check it, and replace it if necessary. The fuse is there to safeguard electronics against power surges, so it is your likely culprit.

WAVE radio transformer bad ???


If you can check ohms,you can also read volts. Open the radio again and look for DC volts on the rectifiers capacitors.They look like :cans", normally the color is blue. Check for positive dc v. against chassis ground. If no + tension,your rectifier or your secondary are open.
