Question about Bose LifeStyle 50 System
I moved to China (220V) from the U.S. (110V) and brought my Wave Radio with me. I have operated it for 2 years using a voltage step-down transformer without any problem. However, a few weeks ago some painting contractors in my house decided to "borrow" my radio and moved it to another room, sans the converter. Bam! Flatline.
I am hoping there is an in-line fuse that I can replace. (I would hope Bose would be thoughtful enough to include such an inexpensive component in a very expensive piece of equipment.) But I have not opened the case or otherwise investigated. I appreciate any advice.
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.

Yes there is a fuse inside the unit.
But it was not expecting a 220 jolt. And it may have fry-ed it. It would be about the same as if it were hit by lighting during a bad storm. Say a prayer. I would say you have a case , with your contractor. Good luck DFD
