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?

Re: 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.

My Bose Wave radio/cd won`t play cd`s anymore. The radio works great. The cd player worked tonite, the would stick in a certain part of a song. Very intermittent. Now tries to read the disc, then says disc...

"I`ve used an aerosol air can to clean thru the cd slot"What type? not an "empty" can of paint, hairspray, chemical of some sort i hope. Compressed air at most I hope. If not, that's your Bose out the window!
The lense sounds like it needs a clean, you can buy these in disc for with tiny brushes on. Made by BIB and Allsop amongst many brands

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.

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!

Bose does not release their schematics or parts lists, effectively making themselves the only repair center for their products. Your only safe repair method is to contact the service/repair center at They will likely offer you a flat rate repair or credit towards the purchase of a new unit.
