Question about Bose Wave Radio
My bose wave radio wont turn on. It has no power at all. Our power went out and when it came back on after about 45 minutes, the radio wouldn't power on at all. What happened?
I have the exact same AWR1-1W model for repair last week. I am assuming you have a meter and you also have soldering skills here.
You might want to check the Q4 transistor (2SC3792) for a short on the two outide pins. With the power disconnected, measure with a multimeter the resistance between the two outside pins of the Q4 transistor. If you measure anything between 0-3 ohms it is shorted. Replace this part with a similar part or you could replace it with the new Bose recommended part - 2SD438F-MP-E but it is very hard to obtain. I have used an 2SC2655 instead and had no problems so far with the radio. This radio also came in totally dead with no display nor the radio working.
