Hi, 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 outside 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.

Or perhaps it is just a fuse blown. There is 0.5A fuse inside the main board.

Take care

    Get a screw driver and unscrew all the screws behind the radio, then follow the instructions i gave to you earlier.

SOURCE: no power up

Considering that power is present, popping sound is caused by a faulty Q401, 5V supply for display.

Good Luck.

SOURCE: Station preset on AWR1-1W bose radio

I found out you tune the radio to the station you want to preset, and hold the preset button (1-6) that you want to assign it to until it beeps. And it's set.

SOURCE: My Bose Wave Radio, Model AWR1-1W, has no sound

I found a solution on a similar problem saying the audio amp IC is damaged. You will probably need to replace this. Unfortunately I don't know which IC it is.

Bose stereo wont turn on but the clock is working


Does it have power, the clock runs off a separate fuse. So pull the unit out and check to see that one wire is powered when the key is turned to run.

My bose cinemate wont turn on


It is most likely a problem with the acousticmass. There has been a lot of issues with the Bose cinemate. Most of these issues require you to contact Bose. Make sure you have proof of purchase. They will charge a flat fee to fix it or if they can't they will offer you a discounted one as long as it's covered under warranty. 10_21_2013_5_59_43_am.png

Bose Cinemate wont turn on. I believe the remote control is not communicating with the unit. How can we reset the remote control?


Read this procedure to possibly fix the remote:
http://remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=Display&contents=help_deadremote&uuid=A12963989782821
They also sell replacement remotes.

Zoom in on the picture of the original remote provided on the site (or look at your own) and get the actual remote model number.

or check eBay: search for "(model of the device or the remote) remote", check the 'include description' box. Usually cheaper than the vendors.

I just bought the ipod nano 6th generation and it will not charge in the Bose docking system....my old one charges with no problem.....is there a fix for this? The nano plays fine it just wont charge


If it is a different model iPod then it is likely the Bose dock does not support the newer model. Quite often changes such as from iPhone 3 to iPhone 4, Bose had to release a new dock. The speakers and music will still always work, but the support will be limited for charging. Unfortunately you will not be able to fix this, other than upgrade the dock, or go back to your old ipod.

Thumps Up!

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???
