Question about Bose Wave Radio
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.

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.

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.
