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

https://www.domgen.com

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_...

One speaker doesn't work on my bose wave radio/cd?


I can only get one speaker to work continuously. The other works intermittently. If I move the power cord a bit, I can sometimes to get the one "bad" speaker to work. When it's working, the speaker sounds fine. This is driving me crazy. The power cord is new, so I think it has something to do with the power supply. The unit is a '95 Bose Acoustic Wave CD-2000.

Sony CDP-CX450 Cd Player


Hi,

As in most current devices, absence of power (as in shortages/outages) simulates a reset. The reset reverts the unit back to factory defaults which of course does not have user configurations and settings.

A workaround perhaps would be with the use of a UPS as those used in computer systems.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

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

Bose wave radio/cd player. Power reduction.


Unfortunately, Bose does not release their parts lists or schematics, effectively creating a monopoly for parts and repairs. In fact, their web site says that the Bose factory is the only option for service or repair. They used to list a flat rate repair charge on the web site, but removed it - probably because it scared too many people. Their troubleshooting guide (below) might help, but it's very simplistic.

Before you invest in expensive factory repair on one of these trouble prone sets, you might want to investigate the new HD radios -- better sound at a MUCH lower price.

No power


Unfortunately Bose will not release their schematics or parts lists, effectively giving them a monopoly on repairs. Their web site, www.bose.com, offers to repair most Wave radios for $100 or to give owners of broken sets a $200 allowance towards the purchase of a new Wave. Before spending the big bucks though, you might want to check out the new HD radios. Better sound and a MUCH lower price.

Inoperative Bose Wave Radio


You should contacty Bose directly to find out about service. There may be a fault in the power supply, or one of the circuit boards in the unit. This will require proper troubleshooting and parts replacements.
