    All display lights are lit at the same time. No button functions work. Then screen went totally black. I left unplugged for days, still black. I replaced battery and now all lights are lit again and no buttons affect it.

Unfortunately, Bose will not release their schematics of parts lists, effectively giving them a monopoly on repair of these sets. On their web site, www.bose.com, they offer to repair most Wave sets for $100 or give $200 credit towards the purchase of a new Wave. Before you spend the big bucks though, you might want to check out the new HD radios. Better sound and MUCH lower prices than the Bose.

Radio display is not bright


Press and hold alarm time for about a second, then press your tune/playlist button until your bright hi or bright lo choices display, once you chose which lighting you want, do not press anything else. It will set to your last selection.

Replace the 3 AA batteries that maintain memory & backup alarm function. That just may do the trick.

I have a very old Bose clock radio (model AWR1-1W) that has suddenly deceided to light up every single character on the display solidly. Unpluging and plugging it back in does not help. Any ideas?!?...


Hey Pete! Did you take out the 9V battery as well and let power down to re-set? Benimur from JustAnswer suggested: Your described problem could either be a system glitch, hardware fault.
If it were a glitch, unplug the unit for an extended period of time to force the Bose to reset and revert to factory defaults. This would also require removal of the 9 volts battery. Should this be not corrective, then it would seem that the logic circuitry of the Bose radio is faulty. The logic circuitry includes the micro processor that handles all the controls and the displays. Unfortunately, not a user doable repair.

Is there anyway to fix a blown Bose Speaker (201)?


The only 2 solutions are: 1. Just find an equivalent driver to replace. Re-wire new driver speakers into the enclosures. The old 201s may have had decent drivers (although probably paper cone) for back then, but now just about anything will sound as good in those particular cabinets.
2. Call Bose and exchange them for current 201 speakers (higher clarity more powerful). Bose will give you about 30-40% off I believe on a series 5 model. They now pay for inbound and outbound shipping as well.

Will not power on, makes static noise just as you


First off how long have you owned the unit? Bose has pretty good manufacturer warranties. Usually several years up to 5 or 10 sometimes. Once I have more information I will assist you further. It sounds like either the amp or something else may be defective inside the unit.
Thanks,
Lee

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.
