Question about Bose Wave Radio
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.
