Is your unit the small one or the large wave? In any case, the probable issue is that the controller IC is defective or that the power supply has a problem. It is rare for these to have problems with the amp section or the actual speakers. Any shop that deals with audio gear should be able to narrow down the problem. Please note that parts are not always available to all shops for these units. Can you update this with the model? I might be able to provide more details and possiblities.

Thanks,
Dan

PLUG IN YOUR HEAD PHONES IN - do you get sound ?

If you do Get sound from your headphones it could be that your speakers blown and would recommend Bose to take a look if still under worrentee.

if NOT You could still get it covered by domestic general

find them at this link

otherwise if you dont want to pay for a repair take a look yourself - get a screw driver open up the case as best as you can look at the speakers, you may well find that you have a dry joint or a cable could have come disconnected if so solder it back on and you've FIXED IT!

If this happened after a power outage , then try leaving the unit unplugged from AC main for one hour or so.

If that does not fix the problem, then there is an internal problem.

In that case better calling Bose service number listed on the owner manual. Even opening this kind of Bose units is difficult, the job must be done by a technician.

    Let me correct what an expert just said:

    "If you do Get
    sound from your headphones it could be that your speakers blown "

    Speakers do not blow, they can be cracked or broken, short out, or have a lose contact.

    If they are broken you get cracklig sound, if there is a short unit goes on protection andd does not start up, and it is rather unusual that both speakers have a lose contact at same time.

    If you get sould on headphones and no speakers it can also be a fault on the headphones jack, on the amp final, or on the input/output board, but unit should go in protection mode on the last two.

    The wrong solution was also copied from a different expert on:http://www.fixya.com/support/t156059-no_...

Does the unit have a breaker on the back? There may also be a fuse. You should be able to find a users guide on the CyberPower website.

Had a power outage does not turn on is there a reset


Hello - I understand the unit has previously experienced a power outage, however have you try unplugging the unit or flipping the household breaker off? Wait approximately ten minutes; is there power to the unit? I suggest touching each button individually on keypad, do any lights turn on or does the display change? If any proves to be ineffective, I would recommend contacting a professional to move forward accurately because it can possibly have a defective keypad.

Hello!WE had recent power outage ,now door opener won't work.unit has power lights come on when remote pad pressed,but nodoor action?thank you


Along with the power outage you probably also had a power surge. You need to pull the logic board and check the printed circuit board for burnt or missing traces. Unplug the unit first.

WE HAD A POWER OUTAGE.NOW MY KEURIG WONT TURN ON. CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT THE PROBLEM IS. THANK YOU.


Hi,first you need to check if fuse has not been blown out.Because when POWER comes back after an outage there is a surge voltage flowing through electrical lines.It is advisable that when their is a POWER outage you have to turn off your FUSE box or SAFETY box to make sure that it won'tdamage appliances when POWER comes back>Technically when POWER SOURCE or SUPPLY has been shut off for a period of time.When POWER is back, expectantly there is an abnormal flow of current/line; current will not be as stable until a period of time..AC current behaves like a wave,values changes from time to time especially when POWER SOURCE has just been TURNED ON..So better turn off FUSE BOX when experiencing POWER OUTAGE so that when power comes back SURGE VOLTAGE wont flow within the circuit>Hope this helps..

it sounds to me like you have endured a power surge and it has cooked the unit // i would replace it as surges do so much damage it normally writes the unit off but your power company is liable to replace it (if it was a surge)

I have a harmon kardon cdr 30 cd recorder. After a power outage the unit no longer turns on. A surge must have blown something.


Hi
First thing to do is disconnect the unit from the mains supply for 15 mins to allow for a hardware reset,and then power it up and try again. If it does not come up, then the power supply has been damaged by a power surge associated with the outage. You may have no choice but to take the unit to an authorised HK repairer. Let me know how you get on with resetting the unit. Please take the time to rate this solution. Happy to talk to you more about it. Cheers

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.
