Question about Bose & Wave& Music System

1 Answer

Loud popping and static-vol ctrl has no effect on noise

I have (unfortunately!) a Wave/CD [single CD, top flap] that has what appears to be a power supply problem. The loud popping and white noise roar is unaffected by the volume control. The radio and CD do play, and the volume on those functions is adjustable,but the noise is overpowering. Clock display is fine. Change of location-- no change.
Repair facilities want an ungodly amount to repair, and will not sell parts. [Just say "no" to Norbern!]
I'd like to get a schematic for this, if I could, model # AWRC1P.
Thanks.

    Bill B.,

    Thanks for your answer. You are right on! Not only will I not under any circumstances pay megabucks for a repair, but I will never again buy a Bose product, regardless of the 'deal' or trade-in offer.

    I will trace the line cord into the power supply and determine what components are in the filter (RC?) and replace them. I understand that the PS in this unit uses electrolytic capacitors.

    If I can take it apart I can probably fix it, and I CAN take it apart!! A schematic would be helpful, but not necessary.

    I'll look into a HD radio. Thanks for the feedback.

Bose will not release their schematics or parts lists, effectively giving them a monopoly on repair of their units. If you check their web site, www.bose.com, you'll find that they will repair your unit for $100 or possibly give you $200 credit towards a new model. Before you take them up on either offer, you might want to check out the new lines of HD radios. Better souind quality, MUCH lower prices than a Bose.

Bose Wave Radio/CD bad static and occasional "pop"


Hi, When you change the Aux turn the radio off. Then turn it back on. As for the static move the radio to another plug or to a different room. If you have floresecent lighting it may do that too.
The cord acts like an antenna so don't bundle the cord. Good luck.

Bose Wave Radio, Model AWR1-1W When turned on radio emits a loud buzz and no other sound. Pushing tuning, volume, and aux buttons has no effect. Is this fixable? If so, how?


Loud buzz is usually caused by static and radio interference in radios. If none of this is affecting you unit presently there there is a probability that some cables which aid the fm antenna in receiving stations this could act as static which brings about the buzz on the unit. Either way it is caused by interference on the fm receiver end and all you have to do is get that serviced and the problem is solved.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

Good standing wave but not so good reception


Could be a lot of background noise.
Could be no one near you.
Could be RF GAIN down.

standing wave does not effect receive, it only effects transmit. If you are sitting still some where, you could be in a hole. Depending on where you live there could be a lot of background noise, RF interference. For instance Staten Island is known as "Static Island" because of all the RF interference.

Where you are at, it may be a fact of life.

Hi,I turned on my Marshall mg series 100 dfx and there is no sound,just static comes on.Its starts with a kinda bad feedback sound than turns to loud static.


I suspect the power supply for the effects processor has failed. The effects unit will "go crazy" when power supply is too low voltage.

If the amp has loud noise, then the power amp portion is PROBABLY OK.

I had a similar problem in a Behringer amp caused by a bad electrolytic filter cap.

Bose wave radio won't turn on


Unfortunately Bose will not release their schematics or parts lists, effectively giving them a monpoly on repair of these units. Their web site, www.bose.com, offers to repair most Wave radios for $100 or to provide a $200 allowance towards purchase of a new Wave. Before you spend the big bucks on theis trouble-prone product though, you might want to check out the new HD radios -- better sound and MUCH lower prices than Bose.

Bose wave radio/cd player. Power reduction.


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.
