Bose does not release their schematic diagrams or parts lists, so factory maintenance is about the only way to go. You can start the process by visiting www.Bose.com, but be ready for some sticker shock. Before you do anything though, every Bose has a line fuse inside the case. The location varies by model and date of manufacture, but if you open the case it will be simple to locate. Check it, and replace it if necessary. The fuse is there to safeguard electronics against power surges, so it is your likely culprit.

Just had lightning strike our electric pole. Electricity is now back on but tv doesn't work.


The first thing to do is notify your insurance company because lightning ruins sensitive electronics. The television is most likely not reparable. There are too many ways for the high voltage to come in and destroy it.

hi due to it being lightnig strike their could be that much wrong with it that you might never find the problem.
If you are going to try and repair it then your going to need a multimeter and also get hold of the schematics so you can follow them and for any part numbers you might need.
The chances are its going to be several blown resistors because the lightning strike causing power surge so i would start looking around the board where the power lead goes into the board this would be a good place to start testing

What is wrong with my water softener Autotrol 740 Electrical problem?


if there is a bridge rectifier or diodes directly down line of the transformer i would suspect it is bad.. put an inline fuse also on the primary side of the transformer and wouldn't hurt to put a fuse on the secondary also if the transformer only has two wires for the secondary..

Our electricity went out for a few minutes, and since then the TV will not turn on. The green light is flashing. We tried resetting it by pushing a pen point into the reset hole, but it does nothing. ...


Your power outage may have been caused by a nearby lightning strike, or any number of
1000 different reasons that cause power surges, brown-outs, voltage spikes, inductive loading,
and/or utility pole breaker trips and resets (this accounts for your power loss (a pole breaker trip),
followed by restoration of power (the pole breaker automatically reset) - even plain old high electrical demand causing an overload due to air conditioning demands caused by hot weather.
When the pole breaker reset, your TV caught a power surge.
Whenever a power outage occurs, quickly power off (or better, unplug) any/all computers, TVs,
etc. that are not protected by surge-protection.
As an electrician, when someone loses an item of electronics concommitant to an electrical
anomaly, its almost
always traceable to a nearby lightning strike (or the power company provided equivalent), accompanied by inadequate surge protection for
the VCR/TV/Computer/Stereo/uninsured valuable electronic item/XBOX 360/Nintendo Wii.
Surge protection can
be provided by the consumer at the power strip (a good one with builtin MOV protection and a
warranty costs $20, whereas a zero-protection 4-outlet or 6-outlet power strip will cost $4-$5).
Your electrician can provide whole-house surge protection where a whole-house MOV-based (metal oxide varistor) surge protector, or per-circuit protection can be installed with
a GFCI breaker (or better, an AFCI breaker) can be installed.
GFCI = ground fault circuit interruptor
AFCI = Arc fault circuit interruptor
Lightning protection is especially important in Florida, which is the "lightning capital of the world."
I've never found a good solution to lightning-fried electronics (random power supply components are destroyed and/or fuse blown), other than renters insurance or homeowners insurance.

Your only real hope for an economical fix is to look for a blown fuse, and replace it.

If desperate to attempt a fix on your own, you could try replacing the entire TV power supply as a module, but even this provides
no guarantee of a fix - lightning damage can extend beyond the power supply.
When traveling, I will always unplug everything before I leave (except the security system),
and also turn off the breakers to unneeded house circuits (which kills the wall switches that
control interior lighting - forcing a burglar to use their flashlight instead of interior lighting)
which is the least convenient lightning protection, but highly effective, and cheap (free).

I have a Bose Wave Radio/CD player and the transformer inside does not work. Where can I get this spare part for it please/


First of all make sure that the thermal fuse is intact or is blown , if so you can short connect and use if it works.
If not the transformer must be sourced from Bose unless you can get this rewound at a rewinding center.

Unfortunately, Bose does not release their parts lists or schematics, effectively creating a monopoly for parts and repairs. In fact, their web site says that the Bose factory is the only option for service or repair. They used to list a flat rate repair charge on the web site, but removed it - probably because it scared too many people. Their troubleshooting guide (below) might help, but it's very simplistic.

Before you invest in expensive factory repair on one of these trouble prone sets, you might want to investigate the new HD radios -- better sound at a MUCH lower price.

My Bose wave radio suddenly is dead as a doornail. It showed no signs of malfunction, just won't work now.


Perhaps it is just a fuse blown. There is one small fuse inside the unit. If the fuse is OK, then the next step might the transformer. If the transformer is OK, then it might be the Bridge rectifier IC GBU series
