Question about Bose & Wave& Music System

1 Answer

Bose wave system

My system is about ten years old, and its from America. I've relocated to London, and now sometimes when I play a cd I get a whirring noise, and sometimes I get a disc error message.
I've phoned Bose, and because it is an American model, I would have to send it back to America, to fix it.
Sometimes it will play a cd, and sometimes it just produce the whirring noise, for the same cd. Any ideas?

Greetings gaddman43,

Unfortunately your only option might be to deal with the mfg, unless you are handy with electronic repairs. It sounds like you maybe having an issue with possibly several components (i.e. Lens, Drive Motor, Main board) there just arn't any consumer accessories to correct the problems.

You could try a local repair facility that would work on Bose products they should be able to provide basic information on necessary repairs. Even though its an american model the parts should be similar.

Hope this helps.

No sound Bose wave


I took mine back to the Bose store and they gave me credit on my Wave that was about ten years old toward a new CD wave radio. I would recommend taking it to the Bose store and see what they can do for you.

Why does My Bose Wave AWR1C2 radio only works on the alarm. Radio has no sound


My radio stopped working. I was able to take it into a Bose store and trade it in on a new radio. My old one was about ten years old and it did not have a CD player. I was able to trade it in on a new one with a CD player.

The CD player does hardly read self- burnt audio CDs although every one of my other cheap Players i have at home or in the car can read them.


The answer depends upon the age and precise version of your Bose system. Not all CD players can reliably read CD-R and CD-RW discs, and even those which do are sometimes picky about the brand of recordable disc in use.

In my experience, all of the Bose Wave systems I've worked on have contained surprisingly cheap/average parts inside considering the luxury price-tag. Either stick to using other cheaper (and often far better) CD players for CDs you've burned yourself, or look into getting the CD laser pick up inside your Bose replaced with one which is known to have no issues with CDs of different reflectivity to standard pre-recorded CDs.

Anything that has a headphone output can be adapted to feed an RCA cable pair for standard stereo to any audio device with a standard RCA input (except PHONO). Get a cable like the one described here: http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10218&cs_id=1021804&p_id=665&seq=1&format=2
and connect it into any available analog input EXCEPT "Phono".

Try cleaning the lens using a cotton sdwab and alcohol. If that fails to resolve it, the optics are probably starting to fail. Depending upon which model, the optics may be Sony ones that are readily available and relatively cheap. Any service shop that works on audio gear should be able to help with this. Expect the optics to cost between $10-$40.

Recorded audio CD will not play


Most likely the recorded format is wrong and that is the cause.

Bose Wave Radio w/single CD player on top


My Bose Wave Radio/CD developed this problem about a year ago. I don't use the CD player much and kept the unit clean. The disc spins but, the system does not read it. Cleaning the lens with cotton did not help.

Read that Bose charges $75 to fix this problem.
