    Radio and remote work fine but all segments in the display are lit up all the time

  • nglassma Mar 02, 2009

    I was listening to the radio yesterday (FM) when it suddenly shut off. Then the clock screen showed "1:" until this morning. I unplugged and replugged it from the wall outlet. Same problem.



    This monring I changed the 9V battery. Now all the lights turn on and stay lit. It doesn't respond to any buttons or the remote. Any idea how to fix it?

Found this in the manual:

To adjust the display brightness -

The display dims automatically to medium or low brightness, as appropriate for low light room conditions. You can adjust the brightness setting of the display for both strong light and lowest light environments, but not for the medium light setting. Turn the system off before setting brightness levels.

• In a strongly lit room, hold down CD Mode and press Volume up or down to adjust the setting between 5 and 9 (it is preset to 8).
• In a barely lit room, hold down CD Mode and press Volume up or down to adjust the setting between 1 and 5 (it is preset to 2).
• If you do not want the system to dim automatically, set both levels to 5.

SOURCE: blue LED display too bright

TRY........with radio on and set on "AM", hold "Clock" button about 7 seconds and let up - bringing a setup menu. Using tuning knob,scroll to "Hardware". Press tuning knob in, bringing up contrast menu. Press tuning knob in, bringing up "contrast level". Turn tuning knob counter-clockwise to "00". Brightness, dimming level should be "170". Turn radio off to exit, then adjust "Dim" button to your liking.

SOURCE: My Bose Wave Radio, Model AWR1-1W, has no sound

I found a solution on a similar problem saying the audio amp IC is damaged. You will probably need to replace this. Unfortunately I don't know which IC it is.

The time display is dark. the radio works and I can set an alarm but the time display is dark. I seem to remember there is a battery somewhere that may need to be replaced.


it may be that the display died or it not getting enough light on the screen because it has a senor that when the lights turns on it will be brighter or if this does not work call bose at 973 644 BOSE

I have an original Bose Wave radio. The clock digits now do not brighten during the daylight hours or when a light is turned at night, as they used to. If I look very closely, the digits are lit, but...


If you look closely you will find a light sensor on the outside - it looks round and has some squiggly red waves on it. It's probably bad and needs to be replaced. Its' purpose is to sense the ambient light, send a signal to the processor and vary the brightness of the display. Check also to see if it's blocked.

Bose not working at all


Unfortunately, Bose will not release their schematics of parts lists, effectively giving them a monopoly on repair of these sets. On their web site, www.bose.com, they offer to repair most Wave sets for $100 or give $200 credit towards the purchase of a new Wave. Before you spend the big bucks though, you might want to check out the new HD radios. Better sound and MUCH lower prices than the Bose.

check the rectifier next to the transformer, the dc out should be around 15 volts and the big main cap as well.

Wave Radio-dial face,display very dim.


Our Bose did the same thing after a power outage. This one doesn't have a CD button, so we tried holding down the Clock button and used the volume control and that seems to have fixed it.
