Question about Bose & Wave& Music System

2 Answers

Skips mp3"s My Bose wave music system will play commercially recorded and purchased cd's with no problems. CD's or mp3's recorded from i-tunes or other downloads have drop outs of varying lengths.when played, i.e., from a couple of seconds to 5-10 minutes. This has not always happened. The problem started a while ago. Bose could not identify the problem when contacted and indicated I needed to send in the system for them to diagnose for $75 plus shipping and handling. I have the sneaky suspicion they're going to tell me the system needs to be replaced. Any ideas??

    That's exactly what I mean. It will play and then just stop. It will start again and then stop, etc.

    My bose wave radio/cd plays some cd's but not others. At first I thought it just would not play cd's that were burned from i-tunes etc., but it also does not play some that have been bought brand new. I will take the cd that will not play and put it in another player and it works. Any suggestions?

    Thank You
    Karen

Three solutions: One, Optical pickup/Eye needs replacing or cleaning (see other Post for more detailed info.). Two, try using Higher Quality Blank CD's note do not use "DATA" storage CD's but "MUSIC" CD's. Third, try using another type of Software Program to burnt your CD's, some formats are not compatible to some opticals.

What do you mean drop outs? Like it will play and then stop?

Not playable cds


If your CD's get scratched by being stacked on a table and shuffled around, you can often get them to play again with something like Skip Dr: http://www.amazon.com/SkipDr-Manual-Disc-Repair-System/dp/B0015ACUKC/ref=pd_sxp_grid_pt_2_0
You may also be able to take them into your local video or video game store and have them professionally resurfaced.

If the CD's are not scratched, and are commercially bought (ie. not cd's that you bought blank and burned music onto yourself) I would probably try contacting Bose.

The unit has a power supply problem, no user servicable parts inside. Bose uses a thermal fuse built into the power transformer. Take unit apart and check for connection issues first, then look for a possible fuse, if none exist chances are it is in the power transformer, contact Bose for service.

Does the radio work? If not, make sure the volume is up. If so, the speakers are not blown. Return your product.

Unfortunately Bose will not release their schematics or parts lists, effectively giving them a monopoly on repairs. Their web site, www.bose.com, offers to repair most Wave radios for $100 or to give owners of broken sets a $200 allowance towards the purchase of a new Wave. Before spending the big bucks though, you might want to check out the new HD radios. Better sound and a MUCH lower price.
