Our Bose did the same thing after a power outage. This one doesn't have a CD button, so we tried holding down the Clock button and used the volume control and that seems to have fixed it.

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.

SOURCE: Why does the CD function on my Bose Wave Radio/CD

Hi, when the lens of the CD player is weak, it can keep on spinning and not play. what you will need to do is to get a lens cleaner and clean the lens(instructions are on the lens cleaner.

If after cleaning and it still did not work, that means the lens is to weak to perform well. It will need to be changed to a new lens.

Take care.

Hi.

This is a common problem with this model.

The LCD has a dimmer circuit that can be responsible, in some case it is not the dimmer regulation, but the LCD control circuit itself. In that case you have no LCD backlight and the display is almost unreadable. If that is the problem, changing dimmer settings with procedure below will not help.

Most of the time the problem is dimmer regulation.

About dimmer regulation:

Try disconnecting the unit power cord for ten minutes and connect back.
Try holding down CD or CLOCK button and pressing at the same time the volume buttons. This procedures regulates Bose dimmers setting in a scale from one to 9. The dimmer has separate settings for medium and low brightness. Set both to 5 if you want to disable dimmer settings.

Why is my Bose radio is too dim?


The Bose Wave Radio has two brightness levels: Bright Hi (with a range of 8-15, and default of 10) and Bright Lo (1-8, default 4). The radio automatically goes from Hi to Lo when a room is darkened so the display doesn't interfere with sleep.
On recent models you can reset the defaults to make the display brighter or dimmer in both Hi and Lo levels.
1. Press and hold the Alarm Setup (Menu) button on your remote until -setup menu- appears in the display.
2. Then press the Tune/MP3 button until Bright Hi- appears. Use the Time - or Time + buttons to change the settings.
3. Go to Bright Lo- and adjust that setting too if necessary.
4. Press Alarm Setup (Menu) again to exit setup, or simply wait 10 seconds.
You're done! Note that if you set both Hi and Lo to 8, the brightness will stay the same all day and night.

How do you get the display light on a bose radio to stay on


Do you mean keep it from going dim in a dark room? The settings menu has "Bright Hi" and "Bright Lo" adjustments you can make in ranges from 1-8 (Lo) and 8-10 (Hi). Check your manual under the heading "The setup menu" for very clear instructions.

How to keep the radio light on?


The sensor behind the plastic readout window needs to be exposed to a sufficient amount of light to alter the display brightness from dark room mode to bright room mode (dimmed display, bright display). Be sure sufficient light falls on the digital readout display when desiring the display to be at its bright mode setting.

I have an original Bose Wave radio. The clock digits now do not brighten during the daylight hours or when a light is turned at night, as they used to. If I look very closely, the digits are lit, but...


If you look closely you will find a light sensor on the outside - it looks round and has some squiggly red waves on it. It's probably bad and needs to be replaced. Its' purpose is to sense the ambient light, send a signal to the processor and vary the brightness of the display. Check also to see if it's blocked.

My Garmin nuvi 1300 brightness problems


I spoke to Garmin Support about this issue. There are 2 settings for contrast on the nuvi 1300. You need to set the contrast while it is plugged into the vehicle, and also while it is unplugged from the vehicle. The reason for the 2 settings is to save the charge of the battery while it is not plugged into the vehicle or power source.

Bose wave radio/cd


Found this in the manual:

To adjust the display brightness -

The display dims automatically to medium or low brightness, as appropriate for low light room conditions. You can adjust the brightness setting of the display for both strong light and lowest light environments, but not for the medium light setting. Turn the system off before setting brightness levels.

• In a strongly lit room, hold down CD Mode and press Volume up or down to adjust the setting between 5 and 9 (it is preset to 8).
• In a barely lit room, hold down CD Mode and press Volume up or down to adjust the setting between 1 and 5 (it is preset to 2).
• If you do not want the system to dim automatically, set both levels to 5.
