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.

I copied some music to a disk with 4 different formats but the bose radio wont play any of them.


The Bose Wave Radio doesn't have a CD player. The Bose Wave Radio/CD does.

It will only play standard music CD's with standard CD Audio on them.

The manual is available at Bose.com.

After a power outage, my Bose radio went to military time. I've tried to re-start it by unplugging, re-unplugging, etc. Help!


To switch between 12hr and 24hr format:

1) Turn your Wave Radio off
2) Press and hold "Clock Set"
3) Press "On/Off" to switch between 12hr or 24hr format.

Unfortunately, Bose will not release their schematics or parts lists, effectively giving them a monopoly on repair of their units. If you check the service/repair page on their web site, www.bose.com, you'll find that they will repair most Wave units for $100 or give you $200 credit towards a new model. Before spending the big bucks though, you might want to check out the new HD radios. Better sound and a MUCH lower price than the Bose.

Bose wave radio wont turn on


I have one that is doing the same thing. Will your radio make a POP sound when you unplug it? I was told by Bose Tech it is 15 yrs old and they will not work on it. He told me that if it makes a POP sound that it is not the fuse or power supply???
