I just removed the cover from my wave radio. There are 3 screws that hold the top cover on. Two are exposed and in the rear of the unit and the other is under the CD player lid.

To replace the cover find the two tabs in the front on the bottom cover. Slide the top on and using a screwdriver carefully pry back the front of the top cover so that the two tabs slip by and move into place. Then open up the CD player cover and make sure the spindle fits through the hole in the top cover. Push down and replace the screws.

I didnt remove the ribbon cable so you will have to check on how to refit the connector.

My bose CD player is not working my cd are stuck I don,t why


Good luck this should do it.

If you have a cd or two stuck in your Bose wave radio, here's how to remove it and save yourself $99. This procedure is for the radio (model AWRCC1 or similar) with a single front loading cd slot.
PART I
1. First unplug the power, wait a minute, and then replug power, watching the front display.
2. The display will read "Ejecting". If the cd ejects, then you're done and can skip Part II. If it doesn't eject and/or it displays "Disk error" then you'll need to do the Part II steps.
PART II
1. Unplug the power cord.
2. Turn the radio upside down with the front facing you.
3. Remove the 5 screws from the bottom plate.
4. Hinge the front of the bottom plate up no more than 2". Don't overdo this or you'll damage various ribbon cables inside. Use extra hands or a prop to keep it open this amount.
5. Reach inside and tilt-up the front of cd player's metal housing just enough to access the rims of the cd(s) within the space created in step 4.
6. Pinch the rim(s) of the cd(s) and gently pull it/them out.
7. Reverse these steps to reassemble your radio.
Enjoy your cd player again!

No sound Bose wave


I took mine back to the Bose store and they gave me credit on my Wave that was about ten years old toward a new CD wave radio. I would recommend taking it to the Bose store and see what they can do for you.

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?

We dropped our Bose Wave radio cd player on the tile floor. One speaker seems to not be working. How do we fix it? Cd player is working. Radio is working.


You probably can't repair it yourself, It definitely sounds like a qualified tech's job to me. It could be many, many reasons for the failure. As simple as a fuse popped out of it's holder to part of the motherboard cracked. The shock could loosen any solder joints. If the speakers are built in it could be a damaged speaker or anything working backwards from there. Electronics and tile floor spells expensive to me. But I could be wrong, it happened once before (only a joke)

My Bose Wave radio/cd players digital clock has stopped working. Please help! It will work for a few seconds when I push one of the buttons. Then it will not show the time.


Hey there...All you have to do is press the CD MODE button while you press the on/off button and it will fix it. This happened to me as well and I thought that I was going crazy...I changed the 9 volt battery but finally got it to work.

Unplug and plug back in. It should go through a automatic process, ejecting any discs that are inside. If all you hear is a mechanical noise, try this again only with the disc trays facing the ceiling.

Non-working CD in Bose wave radio


Try replacing the battery on the bottom of the system - alot of people miss it because you have it constantly plugged into the mains, but replacing this (somehow) re-sets the system, and 9 times out of 10 solves the issue.

75 ohm antenna connection ''disappeared''


My antenna connector came off as well. After removing the two screw fron the back (on top), open the CD cover and remove the large screw at the front of the compartment. Now flip the unit over with the front of unit toward you. Insert a small flat screw driver between the cover and the botom on either side. There are two large tabs (either side) on the botom. pry away and up. Flip over and remove the cover. Careful of the ribbon cable inside, it is long enough to lift and flip the cover.

CD player not working


CD Player on my Bose Wave radio/cd just blinks CD and it appears to me that the disc is not spinning. This is the same problem that many others have already identified. I unplugged the unit and removed the battery but this did not solve the problem. I notice that there is a "platter" (part of the lid) that sandwiches the cd onto the spindle. the platter seems tight but does turn. Also, does anyone know if there is a drive belt that may have broken?
