Question about Bose Wave Radio

1 Answer

I think someone spilled liquid on my bose CD wave radio this past weekend. When we first turned it on we got a grinding sound from the Cd player. We could not turn it off and when we picked it up to move it, we found liquid under the radio. Now you have to pull the plug to stop the grinding sound. The buttons are not working.

Unfortunately, Bose does not release their parts lists or schematics, effectively creating a monopoly for parts and repairs. In fact, their web site says that the Bose factory is the only option for service or repair. They used to list a flat rate repair charge on the web site, but removed it - probably because it scared too many people. Their troubleshooting guide (below) might help, but it's very simplistic.

Before you invest in expensive factory repair on one of these trouble prone sets, you might want to investigate the new HD radios -- better sound at a MUCH lower price.

Bose Wave unplugged now it wont power up


The power supply and power regulation circuits on these particular models can be finicky and fail in various assorted manners, causing a no power up condition. This is not something an untrained person should attempt to repair. If there is a possibility that liquid seeped into the unit from a spill (common) then that can present its own set of problems. We service hundreds of these units. CET Services, 117 Windsor Ave., Hurley, WI 54534 // don.miller60@outlook.com.

No sound Bose wave


I took mine back to the Bose store and they gave me credit on my Wave that was about ten years old toward a new CD wave radio. I would recommend taking it to the Bose store and see what they can do for you.

Why does my bose wave radio turns itself off every twenty minutes?


I am not sure how to fix your radio; but my wave radio wasn't working and I took it into a Bose store and got an excellent trade in for a new one. I traded a wave radio without a CD player for a new Wave radio with a CD player. I would take your radio into the nearest Bose store.

I know this is an old post, but more likely than not you have a liquid damaged unit. This is very common and symptoms such as that which you describe are the result.

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.

Horrific bone crunching sound from clock radio


Unfortunately Bose will not release their schematics or parts lists, effectively giving them a monopoly on repair of these sets. Before you spend the big bucks on repair or a Bose "upgrade", you might want to check out the new HD radios. Better sound and MUCH lower prices than the Bose.
