Question about Bose Wave Radio
Hi - January winter power surge blew out my Bose Wave radio/CD player (also furnace, microwave, other radio, phone) in our vacation house. Caretakers took care of furnace but didn't see all electronics gone until now. Can the Bose be fixed or do I just toss it? Don't ask me how many volts went through it....transformer on power pole blew and even blew out my surge protectors in office, so imagine it was LOTS!
The fix may be as simple as replacing a fuse. Location varies by model, but each has an internal fuse on one of its circuit boards. SAFETY NOTE: It may seem obvious, but be sure to disconnect power from the set before you open the case.
If the fuse is not the problem, you will need to seek professional repair. 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.
