    Same problem. I am forced to put my remote an inch away from the unit for it to work.

    Remote not working. Has to get very close to music center to get intermittent result. Ordered a used remote from ebay - this one's range is better than my old one, about 10 feet, but still work intermittently. Also it seems that angle matters. I wonder whether there is a way to tune the sensitivity of remote radio reception on the music center.

2 remotes, neither working, need battery replacement?


More than likely, yes. Remotes rarely fail. However, if they are new, did you remove the little plastic battery tab?

Need help changing batteries on Wave Radio remote


Setting up the remote control

WARNING: Keep the remote control battery away from children. It may cause a fire or

chemical burn if mishandled. Do not recharge, disassemble, heat above 100°C (212°F), or

incinerate. Dispose of used battery promptly. Replace only with a battery of the correct type

and model number.

Your remote control may be one of two types. Each is identified by the way

the battery compartment unlocks to install or replace the battery.

1. Place the remote control face down on a flat surface.

2. If your remote has a slot on the back, follow step A. Otherwise, follow step B:

A. Insert the tip of a ballpoint pen into the slot. Push to the side as shown and hold. Slide

the battery compartment open with your finger.

B. Using your finger, push the tab lock to the side as shown and hold. Slide the battery

compartment open.

Setting Up

See operating

instructions for types of

battery to be used

Note: Use only a Duracell, Eveready, Maxell, or Toshiba CR2032 or DL2032 lithium battery

(available at electronics stores). If you have difficulty finding a replacement battery, contact

Bose® Product Support (see phone numbers on the inside back cover).

3. Keeping the remote control face down, insert the new battery into the compartment with

the + symbol facing up.

4. Gently slide the battery compartment closed. It locks automatically.

5. Use the supplied mounting strip if you want to attach the remote to a surface in your

listening room. Peel off the protective backing to stick one piece to the back of the remote
and the other to the selected surface.

When using remote it takes more then 2or3 trys to function


Two separate issues.

I suggest that you replace the battery in your remote, and be sure to clean any corrosion buildup from the contacts inside the remote.

The CD player likely needs to be cleaned. You can pick up a very inexpensive cleaning disk at many stores, or check this one on eBay:

Can't remove battery of remote to bose radio/cd player (won't work)


On the back of the remote there is a small hole. You need to slide the small lock in the hole over and the battery compartment should pop open. This requires something small like a straightened paper clip. You may need to coax it a little with your finger by pushing out off the end of the remote. There is a picture of this on the back of my remote. I just removed my battery so i could replace it. The battery size is CR2032.

Onkyo DR-UN7 DVD Receiver remote control code


Nowdays there are CLONE type remotes available form electrical stores.

These clone type remotes carry all the codes necessary to work TV, Vdeos, CD players and other domestic sound systems.

I would suggest that you visit one of these stores and see what they have for your ONKYO system, the cost is not great and you will walk out with a complete remote for your system that will work all the other controls as well..
The stores have a fold out paper list, (thats very long) showing model and manufacturer detail for what codes you need to enter into the new remote to make it compatible wuith your ONKYO system.

Remote control of Bose WaveMusicSystem


First have the remote tested. You can buy a basic Infra-red tester at Radioshack for about $6. If the remote is putting out signal, the Bose will have to be serviced. Call them and get an RMA # and they will fix it for a flat rate.
