Question about Bose Wave Radio

3 Answers

My Bose AWRCC1 recently stopped working. My daughter accidentally inserted a DVD into the CD slot, and the display read something like "disk not readable". When she ejected it, it completely shut off. It's plugged in, but no display, no sounds...nothing. I unplugged it for several hours, and also tried other outlets. Can you help?

    That is correct...it appears to be a power issue. I don't have experience with "power boards"...but I do have a meter and am willing to give it a shot, if given adequate instruction.

    Thanks,

    I'd like to attempt to fix it myself. Could it be a bad power transformer?

  • dwmaestri Sep 03, 2010

    Thanks. OK...I've removed the cover and see the power converter, but don't see anything that looks like a typical fuse (glass tube)...just resistors, capacitors, etc. What would the fuse in question would look like?

You may have a blown fuse inside the unit next to where the power supply/converter is located. You will have to remove the top cover to access the fuse. If the fuse is in good condition, use a voltmeter to check the power coming out of the supply to the main board. If no power is present, then the supply/inverter is bad. If you do have power to the main board, then there is a component on the main board that is likely bad such as capacitor(s) or resistor(s) than can be tested with an analog meter

    The fuse would be a small glass tube. Not all of them have them. Some just use capacitors and resistors instead.

Sorry but the only recourse to repair this is to send it back to Bose for repair.

Hi,

does it mean there is no sign of power on the unit? From your explanations, it seems as if your player as developed a power problems since you said it does not display anything at all.

Once a player or any electronics device does not power on, then it means its having a power problem. This has nothing to do with the DVD slotted into the CD part, I think its a coincidence.

If you know about electronic repairs, open the player, use a meter to read the power board because one or two components on the board maybe have been faulty which is causing the board to be defective.

But if you don't know about electronics repairs, then I would advice that you take it to the nearest repairman to fix the problem for you.

Good luck.

My bose CD player is not working my cd are stuck I don,t why


Good luck this should do it.

If you have a cd or two stuck in your Bose wave radio, here's how to remove it and save yourself $99. This procedure is for the radio (model AWRCC1 or similar) with a single front loading cd slot.
PART I
1. First unplug the power, wait a minute, and then replug power, watching the front display.
2. The display will read "Ejecting". If the cd ejects, then you're done and can skip Part II. If it doesn't eject and/or it displays "Disk error" then you'll need to do the Part II steps.
PART II
1. Unplug the power cord.
2. Turn the radio upside down with the front facing you.
3. Remove the 5 screws from the bottom plate.
4. Hinge the front of the bottom plate up no more than 2". Don't overdo this or you'll damage various ribbon cables inside. Use extra hands or a prop to keep it open this amount.
5. Reach inside and tilt-up the front of cd player's metal housing just enough to access the rims of the cd(s) within the space created in step 4.
6. Pinch the rim(s) of the cd(s) and gently pull it/them out.
7. Reverse these steps to reassemble your radio.
Enjoy your cd player again!

Can't get a dvd to eject from from a Lexus cd player


basically just carefully insert another CD into the slot, but only about 1 to 2 inches of the disk and keep jiggling the disk around and pressing the eject button.

This was a suggestion for the lexus owners club wed site.
give it a try and if it doesnt work let me know and I will try to find something that does.

Does not recognize/play DVD - shows "NO DISK"


If you are good at repairs.dismantle the Disk drive unit carefully from the main carriage and if the Optical lens reading unit has got a drive P C B ,then desolder the PCB so that you have only the CD mechanism on your table,with a Digital Multimeter check the Ohmic values of both the Spindle motor and Sled motor. the resistance should read between 4.5 ohms and 8ohms any value beyond this means that the drive signal voltage is not enough to move /rotate the disc and optical-pickup in syncronisation.you can get the drive-motors replaced,or replace the CDM assly available off the shelf.
this should solve the problem.hundreds SONY DVD players are running with this remedy.
