Question about Bose Wave Radio II

1 Answer

Bose wave radio static only

Hi, folks,
I have a Bose Wave Radio that belonged to my dad, and it's been a a friends house for a few months, sitting unplugged in a hallway. When I got it back it wouldn't play (I tried only FM and the digital tuner indicated the stations were tuning in)--no radio sounds, only loud static. Is this something that can be repaired at a reasonable price? I'm sure it's out of warranty because my dad had it for ...maybe 15 years..
Thanks,
Diane

    I have the same problem and it does not seem to be an aerial problem because it occurs in am/fm and cd mode as well.

Try replacing the battery (turn it over, have a look on the bottom there will be a door for a battery) and then trying it. Alternatively connect a aerial as it sounds like a reception problem.

Bose Wave Radio/CD bad static and occasional "pop"


Hi, When you change the Aux turn the radio off. Then turn it back on. As for the static move the radio to another plug or to a different room. If you have floresecent lighting it may do that too.
The cord acts like an antenna so don't bundle the cord. Good luck.

I have had a boise radio abdcd olayer for some time and know very little about its operations. today i played a cd and left the house and expected it to stop as it usually does. however, it keeps on...


With the typos and all it's just a guess, but I'll assume you mean the Bose Wave radio.

I suspect the CD Mode button has been pushed so that the mode is set to REPEAT.

The manual for the Bose Wave Radio / CD is here:

1) Turn your Wave Radio off
2) Press and hold "Clock Set"

Bose wave radio won't turn on


Unfortunately Bose will not release their schematics or parts lists, effectively giving them a monpoly on repair of these units. Their web site, www.bose.com, offers to repair most Wave radios for $100 or to provide a $200 allowance towards purchase of a new Wave. Before you spend the big bucks on theis trouble-prone product though, you might want to check out the new HD radios -- better sound and MUCH lower prices than Bose.

Unplug and plug back in. It should go through a automatic process, ejecting any discs that are inside. If all you hear is a mechanical noise, try this again only with the disc trays facing the ceiling.

Bose Wave Radio audio issues


For folks with no CD audio and disc with flashin cd in window you must remove all power from the unit for one minute. This inclludes removing the battery from the bottom of the player. Yes there is a battery in your unit. Wait one minute, Put in new battery and plug unit in. This solved the problem for me.
