Question about Bose Wave Music System CD Shelf System

Remote control of Bose WaveMusicSystem

I've got the slot loaded CD version of the Wave Music System. All of a sudden the remote stops working. I replace the battery and it still doesn't work. Of course this is a problem since there are no controls on the base unit! Advice?

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.

Go through the BOSE manual to see if another channel can be chosen to control the system. If not, try and locate them farther apart and shield the remote with your hand to avoid signal from getting to the unwanted device.

I own Wave Redio/CD. My new remote is Wave Music System and does not work. Why not?

The Bose Wave Radio and Wave Music System use different IR codes. It is no other reason other than Bose made the remotes incompatible. This is often done to prevent interferance with systems that may be close to each other.

Our Bose Wave music system has stopped working - it is 5 years old - suspect a power supply problem - other than the three screws - how does one remove the cover without breaking it?

Our bose wave system stopped working also. The remote wouldn't work, it wouldn't turn off nothing. So finally we re-set it by clicking the button on the power strip it was plugged into.
It then worked! we had a power glitch a few weeks ago and think that had something to do with it. I hope this helped, and helps others!

The remote for my Bose Wave radio-CD no longer works. I have changed the battery and put a new battery into another Bose remote--no luck and I want to play my Christmas CDs! Help!

  • Reset the system by disconnecting the power cord from the wall for one minute, then plug it back in

  • Make sure you’re pointing the remote directly at your Wave® music system. If the system is placed above table-top height, be sure to angle the remote upward while pointing

  • Check for possible sources of interference with the remote’s infrared (IR) signal, such as bright lights or solar glare off of a window. Make sure nothing is blocking the path of the signal from the remote to the Wave® music system display. The remote will not work properly if there is something directly in front of the display

  • Wipe off the small clear lens on the front end of the remote

  • The remote is designed to work within 20' of the system. Greater distance may cause intermittent response
