Question about Bose Wave Radio
Deja Vu. I did exactly the same thing with my 1st generation Wave Radio in 1995. Like all electronics not made for scuba work, if you don't open the case and start blasting it with a hairdryer in the first few minutes of getting it wet your main circuit board is toast. When you turn it on does it make a rhythmic electronic death rattle sound? If yes, corrosion has destroyed the circuitry.
I don't know if the Bose of today is the same Bose Culture as when I fried mine but mine was 2 months past warranty. I took it to my local repair shop who told me they'd have to replace the main circuit board. Very discouraging but they told me Bose was very responsive to lovers of the product and if I wrote them a letter they might take pity on me. I wrote a letter extolling my love for the product (It was all true. I'd been looking for something non-jarring to wake up to for months before I bought this thing). No BS. I sent the letter and about a month later they sent me a letter with instructions for returning it to the factory and an RMA number. They replaced the main cicruit board for free and returned it to me. It worked flawlessly until 2009.
It's worth a try, but I mean it, send an Old School snail mail not an email. It makes a difference. Good luck and sorry. It's an expensive piece of equipment.
