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..

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.
Most likely poor cracked soldier joints. check around the high heat ares drivers out put transistors amp ic ect... also check ground tabs. wave soldier results in thin joints. just reheat and ad more soldier. good luck!
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
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.
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.
