Question about Bose Wave Radio
1st gen awr1-1w, all capacitors were replaced and radio was working great. Came home one day and radio has no display and is making a sound I can only describe as a stuttering hum, kind of like the old non-resistor spark plugs and the impact it had on th a.m. radio except in this instance there is no other background audio, just the stuttering sound. I've rechecked all capacitors and none appear to be swollen or loose. Pressing the on-off button has no impact.

Actually the problem was caused by a bad 470uf cap, that was used to filter the powersupply for all the analog amps. Replaced the cap the unit works like new.

Try replacing the battery on the bottom of the system - alot of people miss it because you have it constantly plugged into the mains, but replacing this (somehow) re-sets the system, and 9 times out of 10 solves the issue.

There's a line fuse inside the radio, mounted on a PC board. CAUTION:
disconnect the set from power before opening the case or poking around
inside. The fuse could be bad, but these sets are notorious for losing
the power transformer. If the fuse is ok then you are looking at a
$100 repair fee from Bose. You might want to check out the new HD radios -- better sound, MUCH lower price.
