    I've had the same issue. It just up and quits working. Bose will repair 'em for $75 + $17.50(shipping both ways) for a total of $92.50. It will have a 1 yr warranty after repair. I have done this since 2008 three different times. Looking inside trying to see if I could fix this myself has never worked. The way they are made more or less eliminates any DIY as there are no visible fuses or anything to access and if you go too far trying to find what is causing the power loss, you can do more damage. It really isn't worth it to try an do it yourself. I'm sure Bose 'factored' that in. The most continuous service I've gotten out of them is around 6 yrs that includes Wave, Wave I & Wave II models.

    The good news letting Bose fix 'em is they'll look and perform like brand new out of the box...Bose does do a great job in that department.

I checked Q4 ('D' shaped with 3 pins) and there is resistance between the outer pins and one outer and the center. Is that good? If so what else could I check?

Tip

DISCONNECTING YOUR BATTERY without losing the RADIO CODE


I constantly read frequent requests for RADIO CODES referring to the disconnection of battery power ( whether its for changing the battery, etc.) and the radio is now INOP. Here is a simple way to save radio codes, radio stations, clock time and computer settings. Purchase from an auto parts dealer, a 9 volt battery powered lighter socket connector. Plug into lighter, do your battery work, After work is completed, disconnect, and radio will work as before. Unit will cost less than 20.00 and well worth it.

Bose radio will not turn on


You didn't mention which model of the Wave Radio you have but since you have a 9V battery it narrows it down to a couple of models. You might want to check the Q4 transistor (2SC3792) for a short on the two outide 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.

I have a very old Bose clock radio (model AWR1-1W) that has suddenly deceided to light up every single character on the display solidly. Unpluging and plugging it back in does not help. Any ideas?!?...


Hey Pete! Did you take out the 9V battery as well and let power down to re-set? Benimur from JustAnswer suggested: Your described problem could either be a system glitch, hardware fault.
If it were a glitch, unplug the unit for an extended period of time to force the Bose to reset and revert to factory defaults. This would also require removal of the 9 volts battery. Should this be not corrective, then it would seem that the logic circuitry of the Bose radio is faulty. The logic circuitry includes the micro processor that handles all the controls and the displays. Unfortunately, not a user doable repair.

I have a bose awrc1p radio display light changes


This could be the battery causing the display to act strangely. If the radio still works audio-wise, the following should fix the display: The older model wave radios have either a 9v or 3 AA batteries (accessible from the bottom). Remove any battery, and reset the system by unplugging the power cord for about 40 seconds. Plug it back in without the battery attached. If the problem goes away- replace the battery or batteries. (which is only there to hold the clock time, presets etc when not plugged in) BTW- you'll have to set the clock, alarm, presets etc after this procedure. If the problem doesn't go away, call Bose. I think they can repair this for $99 and/or offer a new one as a trade-in discounted.

My 10 year old Bose wave radio quit working.


There's a line fuse inside the radio, mounted on a PC board. CAUTION: disconnect the set from power before opening the case or poking around inside. The fuse could be bad, but these sets are notorious for losing the power transformer. If the fuse is ok then you are looking at a $100 repair fee from Bose. You might want to check out the new HD radios -- better sound, MUCH lower price.
