Question about Bose Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

My Bose clock radio, quite old model, has suddenly started losing about 45 seconds a day so in a week it's 5 mins slow. Any suggestions and preferably fixes?

Its wiring hasn't changed and I doubt the input current has changed - if so no other digital clock/time devices have been affected.

    That's very helpful Scott. I imagine a replacement time base crystal is basically a very cheap item but a) how would I find out the specifications and/or component number? b) could I get hold of one online, if so where to start looking? and c) if I did, could any reasonably skilled technician fit it?

Usually when a digital clock starts losing time like that its because the crystal thats used as a time reference in the clock circuit has started to age and drift off frequency. Other then repair/replacement of components there isn't much that can be done to it. I have a couple older LCD tv's with built in clocks that display the time on the screen that do the same thing, after checking the time base crystal in the circuit its simply due to the frequency of the crystal drifting with age.

Bose Wave Radio/CD clock running very slow. Now that I've moved it across the pacific ocean(US to NZ) the clock is suddenly running very slow, losing 10-15 minutes per hour while running on any...


My guess is that the clock in the radio is based off of the AC line frequency (not voltage). In the US the line frequency is 60hz (hertz). I'm guessing that the line frequency in NZ is 50hz, which would seem to explain that extreme amount of time loss. I would check with Bose, but I'm betting they make different 50hz models for export.

I have a very old Bose clock radio (model AWR1-1W) that has suddenly deceided to light up every single character on the display solidly. Unpluging and plugging it back in does not help. Any ideas?!?...


Hey Pete! Did you take out the 9V battery as well and let power down to re-set? Benimur from JustAnswer suggested: Your described problem could either be a system glitch, hardware fault.
If it were a glitch, unplug the unit for an extended period of time to force the Bose to reset and revert to factory defaults. This would also require removal of the 9 volts battery. Should this be not corrective, then it would seem that the logic circuitry of the Bose radio is faulty. The logic circuitry includes the micro processor that handles all the controls and the displays. Unfortunately, not a user doable repair.

Will not power on, makes static noise just as you


First off how long have you owned the unit? Bose has pretty good manufacturer warranties. Usually several years up to 5 or 10 sometimes. Once I have more information I will assist you further. It sounds like either the amp or something else may be defective inside the unit.
Thanks,
Lee

Clock and timer on Whirlpool GH7155XHS micro/hood are running slow. Clock loses about 10min/hr and kitchen timer countdown is slow.


I've just fixed a very similar problem with a 10-yr-old NEC microwave oven.

Disconnect AC power, take the top cover off, go through the unit and tighten all screws, particularly those connecting ground wires to the chassis and those fixing major components like the power transformer and magnetron to the chassis.

Describe your problem: Depress MONTH/DATE and ALARM1 for 3 seconds and display will show DST 'start' month,week,and date.
Display will show 4F 4.1, alternately flashing

4F = April First week. 4.1 = April 1.That is the old dates for change. What we want to do is to change to the new dates. Once it is done, it will change in the new dates as it did on the
old dates..

Hold down the MONTH/DATE button for 5 seconds, and while pressing the - or down button3 times, until the display shows '3'F2.
3 is month F2 is the week.
=March 2nd week.
You have successfully change the March changeover.

Now for the November change.
Depress and hold MONTH/DATE and ALARM2 after 3 second the display will show DST 'end' month,week, and date.
First digit will be 10 =month. second digit will be L=Last week, and date, will flash alternately.
While holding down the MONTH/DATE press the + or UP button once the display will show 11 (November) and F (first week) and 1 as date alternately flashing.
You have successfully set it for the next 100 years

My 10 year old Bose wave radio quit working.


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.
