    I tried replacing the 9-volt battery backup and had this same thing happen to me. The display died and sound went out too. Now nothing comes on, but there's a popping sound when it's unplugged.

    How do you get the cover off of an AWRC-1G? I removed the 3 screws, but there seems to be something else holding on! Thanks

Considering that power is present, popping sound is caused by a faulty Q401, 5V supply for display.

Good Luck.

SOURCE: Bose wave radio won't turn on

Unfortunately Bose will not release their schematics or parts lists, effectively giving them a monpoly on repair of these units. Their web site, www.bose.com, offers to repair most Wave radios for $100 or to provide a $200 allowance towards purchase of a new Wave. Before you spend the big bucks on theis trouble-prone product though, you might want to check out the new HD radios -- better sound and MUCH lower prices than Bose.

I have the same popping sound when unplugged. I found U401 and R406 but I cannot locate Q4. Is it on the same circuit board as U401? Or is it located on one of the other boards? Thanks!


On my Bose Wave radio the Q4 is located to the right of the large Capacitor, where did you find the R406? What is the difference between the U401 and the Q401 that some people are talking about?

Bose wave radio wont turn on


I have one that is doing the same thing. Will your radio make a POP sound when you unplug it? I was told by Bose Tech it is 15 yrs old and they will not work on it. He told me that if it makes a POP sound that it is not the fuse or power supply???

Replace fuse Bose Wave Radio


For the AWR1-1W turn it over and there are 4 screws that you must remove. When your looking at the circuit board the fuse is just below the power supply and back of radio. If the radio makes a ‘POP’ sound when you unplug it may not be the fuse as power is getting past the fuse. I have the same trouble with mine. I called BOSE Tech and he said if it makes that ‘POP’ sound after unplugging it is not fuse or power supply. They will not even allow me to send it in for repairs as the radio is over 15 years old and considered unserviceable.

Maybe someone else can give us a quick fix.

Bose AWR1-1W older version, not Series III, no power, pop when unplugged.


I've got a simillar problem... will be looking into it this weekend. U402 is supposed to be the 5Volt regulator.
The input to U402 is U401 its a 12Volt regulator.
You should check both...
