Question about Bose Wave Music System CD Shelf System

1 Answer

Bose Wave Radio (Made in China)

Please tell me where can I obtain a black market for Bose Wave radio Schematic and parts so I can combat this monopolized idea of service and parts that currently not avaliable to the public! Bose used parts from China and it is no longer a high quality product anymore! It is junk like anotehr American products junk and junk and fat profit to the CEO. They deserve to be bankrupt Like GM and all threee big Motors stars. I just called Bose about my Wave CD System... They told me the same thing I already know whats wrong with mine the arm in the cd drive doesnt pick up the cd because they got bent when a cd jammed. I cant get them to bend right to pick it up either. I bought this unit already broken so I knew I would need to fix it. The price Bose offered me was fair $100 dollars to fix and mail the unit. Includes a 100% refurbish of the whole unit and gives you a factory warranty to garentee against not just this issue but all others! It stinks I can't just get what I need and do it myself. I do plan on calling back and having it refurbed though. And P.S. If you don't like the way Bose does things don't buy it, its a luxury product that has luxury support so the public don't get burnt off people trying to half *** fix their products and resale them giving them a bad name! Also this is my 3rd bose unit I have Lifestyle 28, acoustimass, and the Wave CD.

Most high-end electronics companies don't let you buy internal parts from them unless you're from an authorized repair center. If you know how to fix it, find the part number (on the actual part that needs replacing- use a magnifying glass) and search for it online.
Also- I can't really think of many small electronic parts that are actually made in the US. No matter what company designed it. China owns that market.

Whilst I can't supply that, i'm surprised you can't pick up the parts you need simply by calling Bose - anything external like wires, the screen, and the remote control can be bought from Bose.
Anything internal will need to be serviced and therefore is not available for customers, as if you get it wrong you will only come back to complain at the company.

My Bose radio will not turn on. I plug it in and the radio lights up and then it goes dead this all happens in about 60 seconds...any suggestions ? I am in Xian China the radio worked fine prior to coming...


Hi,
If that unit came from the states, the power would be 110V and in China tjhe voltage they use is 220V.
That means, you have to check the fuse in the radio, replace if it is already open.If the fuse is still okay, the power circuit has a burned parts.
My advise is to send it to a electronic tech or the nearby service center.
Hope that helps!

My bose wave radio wont turn on. It has no power


I have the exact same AWR1-1W model for repair last week. I am assuming you have a meter and you also have soldering skills here.
You might want to check the Q4 transistor (2SC3792) for a short on the two outide pins. With the power disconnected, measure with a multimeter the resistance between the two outside pins of the Q4 transistor. If you measure anything between 0-3 ohms it is shorted. Replace this part with a similar part or you could replace it with the new Bose recommended part - 2SD438F-MP-E but it is very hard to obtain. I have used an 2SC2655 instead and had no problems so far with the radio. This radio also came in totally dead with no display nor the radio working.

Bose radio will not turn on


You didn't mention which model of the Wave Radio you have but since you have a 9V battery it narrows it down to a couple of models.

I can't seem to adjust the time using the remote


You can obtain the Bose Wave radio instruction manual in electronic form, here: http://products.bose.com/pdf/customer_service/owners/og_wrcd.pdf

See page 15 for setting the time. You should be able to do it with the unit controls.

Am antennas


Hi, to all. There are currently two types of Bose Wave Radio system available in the market. The first one being the WRCD with the top loading CD mechanism. This unit does come with the Antennae cable inside the box and this should sort out your problem. Another option is using an outdoor aerial antennae and connect this to the antennae port behind the unit. The second one is the new Wave Music System with the front loading tray mechanism. This system uses a unique concept of using the electrical cable included in the box and utilise your electrical pwoer line as the antennae receptor. I recommedn to keeping the pwoer calbe fully extended. Another solution for this is that Bose service centers do have a specific spare parts calbe called the AM/FM antennae cable for WMS which you can simply buy for around 20$ I assume. this basically bypases the power calbe and routes antennae reception through this minicable (brownish colored RJ calbe).

Glad to be of service...
