Question about Bose Wave Radio

Water spilt into top of wave radio cd system and it is dead

Is there any internal fuse that can be checked / repaired. My son spilt a little water in the top where the cd compartment is and the system is dead. no display. no sound. Is there an internal fuse anywhere that can be replaced? I called bose and they want it sent in for $129 or $199 upgrade to newer system. I of course prefer not to have to pay that kind of money.

any help/advice?

Bose radios do not have an integrated fuse link. the water has shorted the main board. the best action here is to, replace the entire unit. this can only be done by sending it in to bose. i understand that this is not the option you wanted but, all replacement boards and internal components are not available for consumer purchase.

This repair or, exchange can only be initiated and completed by the manufacture(bose).

Bose will replace this older top-loading CD WAVE model with a newer one for $200 plus $10 shipping. It's a fairly decent deal, considering a new system is $500. Call Bose Service at 800-637-8781

My Bose Wave CD Radio has no power. Will not turn on. dead. Checked the power cord and supply, it is good. Is there an internal fuse?


Yes - although Bose doesn't really publicize the fact, there is an internal line fuse in each Wave. Location varies by model and date of manufacture, but the fuse is easy to spot once you open the radio case.

My 2 year old son used my original Wave Radio as a bank. When I turned it upside down to get the coins out, I realized just how much was in it, then it turned off and won't power up again. Any idea what...


It could be anything as the coins could have shorted out any of the parts. There's also the possiblity that something, even a coin is still inside. I would take off the top and see if you can see anything, objects or broken parts and see if the internal fuse is OK.

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.

All Wave Radios have a Pigtail fuse on main board. May just be Fuse. I have seen alot of them that when dead have water damage as root cause. These radios are very reliable and water damage failure seems to be the most common. Bose has a flat rate repair service on these radios http://www.bose.com/controller?event=VIEW_STATIC_PAGE_EVENT&url=/contact/index.jsp&ck=0
