It just completely went dead. I was playing a cd, and it just stopped. No time display, nothing. I thought maybe a breaker had blown on my plug, but it was fine. I moved it to other rooms and still.. nothing. It just seems to be dead. The unit is probably a couple of years old, but gets limited use and looks brand new.

There's a line fuse for these sets inside the radio on a printed circuit board. NOTE: for your safety, disconnect the radio from its power source before you open the case and poke around inside. The best way to check the fuse is with an ohm meter, but you can probably check it visually using a strong flashlight. There should be a wire filament running the length of the fuse. If it's intact, so is the fuse. If it's broken or not visible at all, the fuse is "blown" and needs to be replaced. If the fuse checks out ok, the power transformer is likely bad -- a problem that these sets are notorious for. Bose will charge you $100 for the transformer repair (unless the set is still under warranty), and having it done is strictly a matter of personal choice. My choice would be to sell the Bose on eBay as a "tech special" and pick up one of the newer HD radios. They offer much better sound at a much lower price.

My battery recently died and I had to get a new battery. Upon replacement of the new battery, by CD player stopped working. It is an 6 disc unit integrated with the AF/FM and is original equipment. When I...


I am very sorry to read your problem, but I'm afraid the unit is 'non-repairable'. I've seen this on more than 2 dozen Hyundai Sonata's. Replacing the battery had nothing to do with it... it's when the original/other battery went dead, the internal (already weakend/aged) circuits went permanently to sleep and will probably never wake up again. The 'reset' the dealer tried was merely removing power to the unit. In a sense, when your battery went dead and you replaced it, you also did a 'reset'.. but it wouldn't come back completely. The CD changer has known problems. The noise you hear is the CD Changer trying to 'boot up' so to speak. It's programmed to complete an internal 'Set Up' and "identification' of any CD's which may already be there -- it just quit working. Its Electronics have malfunctioned - basically the CD changer circuit board.

The main fuse may be intermittent, causing complete power failure, the other possibility is a defective door switch not operating properly, or loose plug in the power feed, I suggest a technician to take closer look at the system because this could prove tricky to find the culprit.

Faulty power-supply symptoms:

The front panel display and buttons are completely nonfunctional and appear dead. The unit will do nothing more than display the following messages on the TV screen:

Interface error
(and or)
Interface error! Turn off the power

If a DVD or VHS tape was inserted prior to the error occurring, you won't be able to eject either from that point further. They'll remain stuck inside the unit until you've completed the repair detailed below.

No sound


other than just double checking your switches settings there really isn't much you can do ,as there really isn't any easy to replace parts inside and that would be cost prohibitive anyhow , but do remember it is a clock radio , if its set t o use the alarm the radio will not work and not the cd either , ck all your switches for proper setting , one may have got bumped by you or cleaning staff
this is the reason I use a sound bar/phone dock as I use it to charge my phone and play music all day at my desk , they only cost about fifteen bucks to buy , and best thing is there's nothing for anyone to mess with when im not there as it wont work without my phone docked in it !!
