SOURCE: BOSE WAVE RADIO/CD

I've repaired about 10 type Bose AWRC3x (the radio/cd model with lift up lid and top controls). If the cd won't play or skips, try cleaning the lens VERY carefully with a cotton bud with some isopropyl alcohol. Let it dry then try again. This will help in about 1/3 of cases.

After that, a new laser unit is needed. They cost around 15 pounds,30 dollars, (Type SFP100s with 13 pin connector made by Sanyo). You need to have some electronics experience to take the case to bits to get the laser deck out, change the cd laser and reassemble. Basically, DISCONNECT THE POWER! Remove the 3 screws on top, turn over and carefully prise the front of the base away from the top cover with a table knife or similar. Lift off the top cover - be careful with the lid ribbon! The deck can be disconnected from its ribbon cable and wired connector very carefully. Take the deck to bits and fit the new laser head (take photos if you think it will help). Remember to unsolder the shorting 'blob' of solder which protects the new laser from static till its fitted.

On the bright side, there is no tracking etc to set up, that's all automatic so usually they work like new with a new laser fitted. I have to say this is the weakest feature on the Bose CD radio, the actual electronics rarely gives trouble.

Hope this helps Steve O'Donnell

I have had a few of these come to my shop. The gears jump out of timing causing the cd lift to jam or become unalligned. The unit will probably have to be disassembled to get the CD out or have it serviced.

SOURCE: My Bose wave radio with aux. for attaching to a CD player stopped working. I tried plugging it different places. It is an old system.

Unfortunately Bose will not release their schematics or parts lists, effectively giving them a monopoly on repairs. According to their web site, www.bose.com, they will repair most Wave radios for $100 or give you $200 credit towards the purchase of a new set. Check your options before you spend the big bucks though. A new HD radio, with better sound and a MUCH lower price, might be a better choice than repair of a problem prone Bose.

SOURCE: Bose multi cd changer wont work, reads "Disc error"

I think there may be a problem with the system (defective parts) - I, too, am having this issue. I am going to contact the BBB - maybe if enough of us complain we will get a recall. To file a complaint:

Bose wave radio CD RCA inputs buzz after a few minutes of playing input from my computer. When I touch the jacks the buzz usually goes away for several more minutes.


i probably wouldnt try souldering them because you have a high chance of melting that wire since it is extremely thin and its usually fiberoptic but you may have something frayed inside the input jack itself like a loose ground or a loose connection i would look their as well. When it comes to music i would throw away the input chords and buy new ones

Bose wave radio/CD three CD changer component is playing for about 4 minutes then saying "disc error" and stopping. My primary unit is working fine.


Obviously the laser reader in the unit is picking up interference from dirt or misalignment. You may have to open it up to get to the aser parts to clean them.

Our Bose Wave music system has stopped working - it is 5 years old - suspect a power supply problem - other than the three screws - how does one remove the cover without breaking it?


Hi,
Our bose wave system stopped working also. The remote wouldn't work, it wouldn't turn off nothing. So finally we re-set it by clicking the button on the power strip it was plugged into.
It then worked! we had a power glitch a few weeks ago and think that had something to do with it. I hope this helped, and helps others!

I have a Bose Wave radio AWRC-1g. The CD player


Yes you have a defective laser assembly. The 139 is a great price as buying the laser lens alone will cost you around 70 .Bose will also upgrade with any new software and will also provide you with a 1 yr warrenty.

Bose wave radio signal fades in and out, cd stops and starts


i would check the power supply for bad solder joints or cracks in the traces on the printed circuit board, possible around the heaviest components (usually a transformer) or a loose connector.You can use the eraser end of a pencil to push on components to see if any of them cause the problem to manifest, and if so, turn off the power and reheat the solder connections to that component.
