Replace the 3 AA batteries that maintain memory & backup alarm function. That just may do the trick.

Why is my Bose radio is too dim?


The Bose Wave Radio has two brightness levels: Bright Hi (with a range of 8-15, and default of 10) and Bright Lo (1-8, default 4). The radio automatically goes from Hi to Lo when a room is darkened so the display doesn't interfere with sleep.
On recent models you can reset the defaults to make the display brighter or dimmer in both Hi and Lo levels.
1. Press and hold the Alarm Setup (Menu) button on your remote until -setup menu- appears in the display.
2. Then press the Tune/MP3 button until Bright Hi- appears. Use the Time - or Time + buttons to change the settings.
3. Go to Bright Lo- and adjust that setting too if necessary.
4. Press Alarm Setup (Menu) again to exit setup, or simply wait 10 seconds.
You're done! Note that if you set both Hi and Lo to 8, the brightness will stay the same all day and night.

Why does My Bose Wave AWR1C2 radio only works on the alarm. Radio has no sound


My radio stopped working. I was able to take it into a Bose store and trade it in on a new radio. My old one was about ten years old and it did not have a CD player. I was able to trade it in on a new one with a CD player.

The radio and alarm stopped working. It is about 10 years old


A Bose Wave Radio with a problem? I say blame Paul Harvey! :P
No seriously.. Does the radio work in manual mode, or does it not work at all? On most devices such as this, this, the clock and alarm function is usually found on it's own "clock board", and there is no real practical way to fix the board. The board that controls the **** will probably have to be replaced. It may very well be that a failure of the clock circuit may be causing the radio to not work either because the radio circuitry may only be getting power when the clock enabled it to - either manually, or when the alarm is activated.
To repair it, I recommend calling SOT Electronics in Concord California. Here is a link that should give you all the info you need.

I hope this helps!

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.

Bose not working at all


Unfortunately, Bose will not release their schematics of parts lists, effectively giving them a monopoly on repair of these sets. On their web site, www.bose.com, they offer to repair most Wave sets for $100 or give $200 credit towards the purchase of a new Wave. Before you spend the big bucks though, you might want to check out the new HD radios. Better sound and MUCH lower prices than the Bose.

Bose wave radio


Bose does not release their parts lists or schematics, effectively creating a monopoly for parts and repairs. In fact, their web site says that the Bose factory is the only option for service or repair. They used to list a flat rate repair charge on the web site, but removed it - probably because it scared too many people. Their troubleshooting guide (below) might help, but it's very simplistic.

Before you invest in expensive factory repair on one of these trouble prone sets, you might want to investigate the new HD radios -- better sound at a MUCH lower price.
