BOSE ps3-2-1 fried board

I have a BOSE ps3-2-1 system. I plugged my system back in and saw and heard sparks.
Smelled burning so I unplugged it immediately. Took off the back panel and saw the board was burned up under where the power plug goes in. Can this be replaced and if so where can I get a new circuit board?

Bose 321 sound fading

Try the following:

1) Switch the unit off completely, using the powerswitch on the back of the bass box.
2) Switch the unit back on via de switch on the bass box.
3) The display should read BOSE 321 and than be dark.
4) Insert a CD and switch the unit on with the remote by selecting the CD/DVD mode.
5) When the sound is now OK, it means that you need to contact Bose to ask them for the latest software update for your unit. After updating your system. The problem will not reoccur.
6) in case the problem continues and at start-up using a CD, no improvement of sound is heard, the system should go into repair. Contact Bose in your country and ask for return instructions.

Circular saw won't start after having cut pavers

You fried the motor and most of the time it isn't worth repairing, since the parts will cost you more that a replacement saw.

If you are going to continue to cut pavers, suggest you either take it very slow and cut 1 or .5 paver and then let it cool down. But a water cooled tile saw would be better.

I accidentally plugged my Acoustic Wave music system II into a 220v socket, vis my step-down transformer. I opened the bottom and saw two fuses, one looked burn, but it it sodded to the mother board, how...

Why would you discount the burnt one as a major clue to the failure? If you're really lucky that is ll that fried. Anything soldered in would have to be UNsoldered for removal. If you don't get that much you might want to take it to a competent elctrical technician and have him take a look at it. Not all damage will be visible to the naked untrained eye.

Wrong voltage applied

Whoops! Being a Bose, you should be lucky but the sounds you describe are not good. Take it to a competent engineer and get an honest opinion.

Something is shorting out when I plug in the power cord to original Bose 321 sub. Took back cover off and saw that the board was slightly burnt. Is it worth getting fixed?

Probably worth fixing. Likely a component shorted and blew a circuit trace. Competent tech can carve out the cancer, clean it up, replace the bad part and blown traces with jumpers to repair the unit.
