    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.

Clock display stays lit


yes on some cars this is normal, the amount of current that the clock draws is very minimal and should not cause problems with a battery. Unless not used for very long periods

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.

29 LTD CB Radio: Calibrate cb radio...


The CAL is to calibrate meter for reading SWR (standing wave ratio) which is reflected power when transmitting back to receiver(radio) from antenna system.
This CAL switch position when selected and mic keyed uses the CAL knob to align the meter needle with inverted red triangle next to cal on meter. Then when you select SWR switch position meter will display accurately when mic is keyed for that channel. Now notice the difference when you go between channels 1 and 40. The ant led light will act as idiot light if it is not lit then you are most likely safe to transmit.
I say system because your vehicle, antenna and coaxial cable are all part of this system. When you have a high reading and have to trim you antenna this is really calibrating the antenna to the vehicles body which acts as a ground plane.

Attenuator light always on... no sound


That light that stays on is not for the "ATT", it is just an indication that the unit has power. The problem with your radio is most likely the power amp IC inside the radio if you are using speakers connected directly to the radio from the speaker wires on the harness. If you are using an external amplifier for your speakers the problem will be either the electronic volume control IC or a muting transistor that has gone bad or the external amplifier is defective. There is no way to know exactly what is wrong without doing a few checks on the radio with a multimeter on have the radio on a work bench to be able to open it up and check a couple of things inside of it.

If you have a multimeter and a power supply (to turn the radio on while on a work bench) I can guide you thru the troubleshooting process to help you figure it out. But you will also need to have a soldering iron, solder, and solder wick to be able to remove the bad part and put in a new part.

Let me know if you will require any more help from me.

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.
