Re: control panel

Thanks for the response,
I glued the plastic tabs with gorilla super glue as a temp band-aid. Looks like they have a design flaw for something that gets frequent use.

thanks again for your response

Re: control panel

I dought it, what we use to do is take a thin piece of metal ( end of a 1/4 watt resister) and push it into the plastic tabs of the button

How do I order extra remote control for Sony ICF-CD543RM? The button for volume decreasing stopped working and we lost the remote control in the move. Is it possible to order another one?

Read this procedure to possibly fix the remote:
They also sell replacement remotes.

Zoom in on the picture of the original remote provided on the site (or look at your own) and get the actual remote model number.

or check eBay: search for "(model of the device or the remote) remote", check the 'include description' box. Usually cheaper than the vendors.

I have a Bose Wave remote. Battery was replaced with the CR2032 and placed on plastic bracket and slide back into remote control. There appears to be no signal/power to Bose Wave unit. The battery is...

Remotes only allow you to avoid walking across the room to touch the unit for certain functions - like POWER. They don't actually enable or disable its ability to turn on if power is available. Walk over and touch the power control. If it turns on the remote is still malfunctioning.

After opening my bose radio it no longer responds to control buttons.Could the plastic ribbon have anything to do with the problem? One side of ribbon is unconnected to anything.

Yes, that ribbon cable is the data-link between the circuit board in the base of the unit, and the upper circuit board controlling the button panel. If the lower part is free, reseat it - correct direction - in the main circuit board. If the upper part is free, you'll need to disassemble the upper unit to get access to where it fits. Be careful when pushing the ribbon cable back in - it's easily deformed. BTW, why did you want to open the radio?

How do I disable the alarm on Bose AWR1-1W? Thanks

To cancell the alarm mode is described in it user manual [page 21]. It is very difficult to type thos symbols here by this window. Just follow the manual. It says, press alarm mode button either on its control panel or on the remote control until the display shows 'no alarm mode' indications. If you don't have the manual send your email address to me by FixYa. I'll send a copy of it to you by return mail. OK.

My Philips AJ3980 radio suddenly has no sound. Also, the band "MW" appears in the display and I'm unable to tune AM stations. The clock seems okay. Thanks for your help!

1. Press the RADIO button to switch on the radio.
- Radio touch screen controls appears throughout
radio operation
- The radio frequency and waveband appears in the
display for 10 seconds before reverting back to the
clock display.
2. Press the BAND button to select your waveband FM/AM.
3. Tune to your station manually or automatically
by using up / down.

Here is a figure to help find the control buttons:


Please change waveband to FM.

My remote control stopped operating my Boston Acoustics Horizon Duo-1. I know it is not the remote because I have a 2nd Duo-i Horizon that can be operated by both remote control units. Thanks, Booker

You can contact the BA. As they will make arrangement to take it back and replace it. BA is a good company and they give consumer feedback as soon as possible. Well, only if you haven't got an answer to your question.

Volume control does not turn volume down. Lost remote control CD Receiver LT-1

I have opened the same unit up. The volume control knob moves a plastic paddle against a right & left micro switches. The paddle is connected to the knob by a very thin piece of plastic which breaks very easily. I tried to glue a different piece of plastic on , but it only worked for a little while. It was a pain to assemble & reassemble the unit. I do not recommend trying it. Just buy another remote (about $35.00)!
Good Luck

Nothing works on it.


I have a couple questions/comments:

You said the unit was "unresponsive" so I am assuming that none of the control buttons work in addition to the display showing faulty data.

If the buttons worked, meaning you could change radio stations but the display was not working, then this would tell me that your display had failed.

However, if the buttons do not work, then this tells me that the microprocessor has failed because its not accepting any commands from the buttons. The microprocessor also sends information to the display. So, that fact that you are having two problems; buttons won't work & bad data on tha display indicate a microprocessor problem.

There is a possibilty that the problem could be cause by a problem in the power supply section. Perhaps one of the voltages is missing. I always start at the power supply and if ok, go from there.

The question you need to consider is if its worth having it repaired rather than going out and purchasing a new unit.

Yes, it can be repaired but you will need to take it to a service center and you will need to consider the expense in having it fixed.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!
