Why is my Bose radio is too dim?


The Bose Wave Radio has two brightness levels: Bright Hi (with a range of 8-15, and default of 10) and Bright Lo (1-8, default 4). The radio automatically goes from Hi to Lo when a room is darkened so the display doesn't interfere with sleep.
On recent models you can reset the defaults to make the display brighter or dimmer in both Hi and Lo levels.
1. Press and hold the Alarm Setup (Menu) button on your remote until -setup menu- appears in the display.
2. Then press the Tune/MP3 button until Bright Hi- appears. Use the Time - or Time + buttons to change the settings.
3. Go to Bright Lo- and adjust that setting too if necessary.
4. Press Alarm Setup (Menu) again to exit setup, or simply wait 10 seconds.
You're done! Note that if you set both Hi and Lo to 8, the brightness will stay the same all day and night.

Time is six minutes late


Manual Time Adjustments
Some people like to set their clocks 5 to 10 minutes fast to make sure that they will alwaysbeontime.EventhoughtheSmartSet® setsthetimebyitself,youstillhave the option of adjusting the time manually if you wish.
To manually adjust the time display depress and hold the TIME button, and press either the SET (Up) or SET (Down) buttons to adjust the time display ahead or back as desired.
Each press of the SET (Up) or SET (Down) buttons will change the display by one minute.
If you hold the SET (Up) or SET (Down) buttons the display will continue to change. The display will change slowly at first, one minute at a time.
But if you continue holding the SET (Up) or SET (Down) buttons the display will change rapidly.
Note:If you manually adjust the time, your new setting is entered into the SmartSet® memory. If the power is interrupted, the display will return to your new setting, not the original setting, when the power is restored.
