Bose Wave Radio - clock display turns off after 1 minute

If you turn on radio or press any button, the clock display works normally. However, when you turn off radio, the clock display stays on for about a minute then blanks out. Never used to do this before. I am sure that my toddler press some weird key combination and got the settings messed up. Can anyone help get it back to normal?

    As is usually the case, shortly after posting this problem I found the solution.



    For anyone who has similar issue, hold down CD Mode button and press On/Off button to reset the display so it stays on all the time.



    Thanks

Why bose wave radio touch pad does not work ?


There's a setting to turn the touchpad on or off. Yours has probably been turned off. Here's how to turn it on.
1. Press and hold Alarm Setup (Menu) on your remote until -SETUP MENU- appears in the display.
2. Press Tune/MP3 until TOUCH PAD- is displayed (8 presses)
3. Press Time- or Time+ to select OFF or ON
4. Press Alarm Setup (Menu) to exit the menu, or simply wait 10 seconds.
You're done!

Turning on/off the alarms

To turn alarm 1 on/off, follow these steps:

  2. On the radio, repeatedly press the Alarm Mode button until the desired alarm mode indicator below "Alarm" is displayed. The music note indicates radio and the sound waves indicate the alarm tone. If no icons appear on the display, that means the alarm is turned off

Bose radio display doesn't show at all


I just posted a similar problem and did 2 more minutes of research on this site to figure it out. Hold down the 'cd mode' and press the on/off button. This turns the display on or off.
